  • 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.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (2/99, p.91) - "...Achingly beautiful harmony-rock embellished by an astonishingly eclectic instrumental palette and topped with mind-boggling lyrics..."

Paste (magazine) - "'Call and Answer' is the highlight, a slow, simmering depiction of a tempestuous relationship's ebbs and flows that showcases Page's top-shelf voice and ends on a high and hopeful note. It's truly moving stuff."
