All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Gordon picks up where the Barenaked Ladies' famous demo "The Yellow Tape" left off and moves them into majors. Their first for Reprise, this witty songbook finds the Canadian five-piece to be a clever group -- charming, but not childish, yet the Barenaked Ladies are pretty close to overstepping the boundaries of silliness. The thing that keeps them in line is their sharp harmonies. Shared vocals between guitarist Ed Robertson and Steven Page are refreshing and upbeat, especially on reworked versions of "Brian Wilson," "Be My Yoko Ono," and the eternal favorite "If I Had a $1000000 Dollars." "Hello City" and "Box Set" are slick narratives, making for album standouts ...

Shared vocals between guitarist Ed Robertson and Steven Page are refreshing and upbeat, especially on reworked versions of "Brian Wilson," "Be My Yoko Ono," and the eternal favorite "If I Had a $1000000 Dollars." "Hello City" and "Box Set" are slick narratives, making for album standouts with its jazz-cool blend. Other shiny moments, such as "Enid" and "Grade 9," are humorous in reflecting upon adolescence, while "Wrap Your Arms Around Me" showcases the Barenaked Ladies' more romantic side. Through all the jokes, these guys are a bunch of suckers for love and such sensitivity is a great match for their quirky musical persona. Gordon is a great introduction to the Barenaked Ladies' sweet comic relief and it's sure to be a college rock mainstay.

    New Band (on the block)

    BNL's first cd, financed by the prize money they won in a radio talent search contest! They employ so much humor into their songs. ''New Kid (On the Block)'' is so funny, and the Barenaked Ladies make so many allusions to so many things to spice this CD up. They are great!

    The Best CD Ever Released!

    Gordon, the Barenaked Ladies first release, is the best colection of music on one CD. It has Enid, Brian Wilson, Grade 9, Be my Yoko Ono, What A Good Boy, New Kid(On The Block), along with other great songs. No CD colection is complete without it.

    Great Music

    This CD is great. Song #1-3, 5, 14, & 15 are the best. The lyrics are the best I have ever heard.
