All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Canada's beloved funny guys the Barenaked Ladies have proved to be more than just a novelty act. Four albums into their wavering career, Stunt was golden for American fans and BNL found themselves chiefing the mainstream scene during the late '90s. So to issue a greatest-hits collection might be appropriate for those fans who caught on late, but also a sweet deal for those loyalists who were following the band since the early days of the lost Yellow Tape. Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits (1991-2001) is a heavy dose of Barenaked Ladies favorites spooled together in an inoperative mix. It's not distracting, though, for the select batch basically sounds like a mix tape. What's even more charming is how BNL allowed fans to vote for their favorite songs online in order to make up the song listing. Radio staples like "One Week" and "Pinch Me" are woven in between cult classics like "Be My Yoko Ono," "Enid," and "The Old Apartment." Two prime cuts from the multi-platinum Rock Spectacle -- "What a Good Boy" and "Brian Wilson" -- are also included, but the rare acoustic beauty of Bruce Cockburn's "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" is a definite standout. Two new songs complete this lush and celebratory album. The spunky new wave-like "It's Only Me (The Wizard of Magicland)" boasts typical BNL humor and grandeur; however, "Thanks That Was Fun" gives something more. It's an emotional track, and Ed Robinson's dark vocals are his finest yet. Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits (1991-2001) does indeed close a chapter in the ever-changing storybook of the Barenaked Ladies. They're rock stars, but they were friends first -- even before they had a million dollars.

    Good Listenin'

    It's All Been Done, Call and Answer, If I Had $1000000, The Old Apartment... I wouldn't call myself a huge fan of Barenaked Ladies, but this album is fantastic. I'm normally quite picky about the songs I listen to--a typical CD might have only 4 or 5 songs that I like, and I'll just skip the rest. There's only one song on this CD that I skip, and that's only after listening to the first half. (No, I won't tell you which song. Suffice to say that the tune gets old about halfway through.) I would definitely recommend this CD. It's gooood listenin'.

    Disc One: Some Pleasant Suprises

    Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits. If you're a huge fan of BNL like I am, you'll understand the meaning of the title from the track ''Box Set'' from ''Gordon''. -''Disc one, it's where we've begun, it's all my greatest hits, and if you are a fan then you know that you've already got 'em.'' This is true, for the most part, which is why I hestitated to get this album. I eventually did get it because the album contains four tracks that haven't been featured on any of their previous albums. Two brand new tracks -''It's Only Me (The Wizard Of Magicland)'' and ''Thanks That Was Fun'', and two old unreleased tracks -''Get In Line'' and ''Lovers In A Dangerous Time''. For the rest of the tracks (coming from six classic albums) you hear what you expect to hear, but not completely. This compilation includes re-mixes for certian tunes. Not re-mix in urban music terms, but different sounding versions of songs from how they sound on the original albums. (Even though they are the same versions.) They sound more like how they sound as singles and in music videos. This includes tunes as ''The Old Apartment'', ''Pinch Me'' and ''Shoebox''. The album, overall is sequenced fairly well, except, I would have finished the album with ''If I Had $1000000''. One of their early classics, and always a great closing tune. Not that ''Thanks That Was Fun'' isn't. You can't go wrong with BNL.

    All my favorate songs

    As a huge BNL fan, I'm happy to say that this disc is one their best albums yet. All the classics are here (well, classic in Canada) as well as four songs never heard on a BNL album. Get this for your self, your parents, your dog, or anyone else that hasn't heard of this great band.

    Great, but can't top the orginal...

    I'm sure this mixture of eccletic oldies and new favorites should fly off the shelves without hesitation. I know I love the Barenaked Ladies... preference being given to thier older stuff. You can't beat Gordon. That's not to say that thier new songs aren't amazing. The point being, any Barenaked Ladies fan should have this album in thier collection. I know I'm getting it for Channukah, come hell or high cheese it should be under your Christmas tree/Channukah bush come december 25/9th.

    Its going to be great!

    The Barenaked Ladies, synonymous with best band ever. All the songs on here are great (I've heard them all, even the two that have never been on a cd before), I'm just sad its missing a few others. Its sure to be the best cd of the year, however.
