NEW BNL..JOHN EMMS CD REVIEWS-BREAKING NEW GROUND

NEW BARENAKED LADIES-ALL IN GOOD TIME-CD REVIEW BY JOHN EMMS-

March 18, 2010 john emms Edit Leave a comment

With Intelligent and challenging new material ALL IN GOOD TIME proves that despite Steve Page’s departure BNL remain viable and vital artists in their own right.  As sure as the steady no blinking look ED ROBERTSON displays at the camera lense in the above photo, BNL muist know deep down they have made a worthy album.

Whether it  brings multi-platinum sales is another cog in the industry wheel, but from the very first listen of  the opening track You Run Away BNL behind one of Ed Robertson most gorgeous songs ever display emotional depth and dynamics to kill for.  That trend continues in the odd time signatures and atmospheriuc wash of Summertime.

At this point the band surprises when  Kevin Hearn breathes new life into BNL with his superb song Another Heartbreak (think early America with a bit of muscle) Bassist Jim Creegan drops in with his own lead vocal on his track On The Lookout which displays a yearning Emitt Rhodes type feel.

Although Ed Robertson gives in one time to his quirky songwriting on the obvious track Four Seconds he more than redeems his gift with the tracks Ordinary, the punchy I Have Learned, and his outstanding ballad The Love Were In.

Elsewhere drummer Tyler Stewart long the glue that binds the band’s music never overplays and is always in the pocket. In addition to Hearn’s Watching The Northern Lights and Creegan’s John Mayer-ish pop of I Saw it BNL have proved that beyond any doubt they are alive, well and at the driving wheel
