Review of Barenaked Ladies – Grinning Streak (Warner Music Canada)

BNLIf 2010’s All In Good Time was the product of Toronto’s Barenaked Ladies mourning the departure of songwriter Steven Page from the band, Grinning Streak is a full-on party. With their newest album, the band gets back to doing what they do best: creating pop songs that, if the world was a fair place, would see them back on top of the charts. Of course, the band is well versed on being on and off the charts but based on the strength of terrific pop songs like Boomerang and Did I Say That Out Loud, it is hard to believe that the world wouldn’t want to share in these songs.
