Far away from the spotlight on vacuous pop, Barenaked Ladies mixed Maroon, a step away from their hypercoloured and frantic previous efforts. No, it doesn’t have the number-one hits that Stunt produced or the classics from Gordon. Instead, it’s an unpretentious thoughtful pop album.
Every song has a tint of maturity, but that doesn’t stop the Ladies from singing, "I just made you say underwear." And maybe it’s just me, but I would rather hear the Ladies sing about underwear than see someone flaunt it.
