Seven years after the release of their first full-length album Gordon, the Barenaked Ladies prove with 1998's Stunt that they are still as strong as ever. Featuring the  rap-tinged radio smash "One Week," Canada's pride and joy makes an unprecedented assault on American album charts while staying true to their reputation as pop troubadours. Mixing ultra-clever lyrics and catchy, hook-driven tunes with more serious, heartfelt songs like "Call and Answer," this album showcases the true depth of the talent in the Ladies' room.

Editorial Notes

Barenaked Ladies: Steven Page (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, flute, piano); Ed Robertson (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, percussion); Jim Creeggan (violin, cello, acoustic & electric bass, background vocals); Kevin Hearn (electric guitar, banjo, accordion, piano, electric piano, Clavinet, melodica, organ, keyboards, synthesizer, samples, background vocals); Tyler Stewart (vocals, drums, bongos, percussion). Additional personnel: Natacha Hebert (spoken vocals); Colin Alexander (scratches); Don Garbutt (samples); "French Pete" Tremblay (background vocals). Producers: Susan Rogers, David Leonard, Barenaked Ladies. Recorded at Arlyn Studios, Austin Texas in Feburary 1998 and Phase One Studios, Scarborough, Ontario in March 1998. "One Week" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. STUNT is another tightly wound, witty, melodic Barenaked Ladies album, with songs that range from dangerously manic to contemplative and nearly sweet. The slightly psychotic white boy rap on "One Week" employs wacky lyrical ingenuity, with such lines as "Hot like wasabi when I bust rhymes/Big like LeAnn Rimes." On the other hand, the charm of "In The Car" lies in its twangy alt-country sound and a sense of nostalgia for a more naive time. Barenaked Ladies' lyrics can veer awfully close to being precious, but they avoid crossing the line with a magical combination of intelligence, biting cynicism, and a refusal to take themselves too seriously.
