For the past 25 years I've been a huge fan of Barenaked Ladies. Last week they released a new cd called "Grinning Streak", and it's debuted at #10 on Billboard album sales... their best sales in years. I picked up the disc last night, and have listened to the first half of it. So far I mostly like it a lot... clever lyrics, solid musicianships, and songs that could belong on their hit albums "Born On A Pirate Ship" and "Maroon". I still miss Steven Page's voice and influence in the band, and hope he returns someday.
The first single is "Boomerang". Here is both the studio version, and a live version from the Kelly and Michael show (along with the interview).
