Every Grinning Streak by Barenaked Ladies album review would describe the CD as an ideal collection of old and new sounding pieces from the band. Most music critics agree that the studio album was aptly named. Overall, the tracks combine whimsy with, nice beats, and catchy rhythms. And yes, the vocals are soothing.

Limits’ takes us to the familiar sound that we have always associated with the band. Not to be missed in the track is the presence of electronic and noticeable sniff reminiscent of the 1980s alternative. The song puts the listeners to a great start to the listening experience the album promises.

Boomerang’ was released as the carrier single of the CD. Fans of the group would surely assert that this is how the entire album should sound like. The song is full, peppy, and sentimental for any woman who likes to sit back and listen to a somatic track for her life.

Barenaked Ladies facilitate family drama in ‘Off His Head.’ The 3-minute pop track showcases the band’s theatrical tones and interesting lyrics. The song prompts the release of teenage adrenaline to make us all nervous.

Gonna Walk’ would put listeners back to the bright side of things. The most enjoyable factor is its tempo shifts in vocals and melody. Your audio senses would be brought to a jaunty walk. This sweet and happy love song would surely have you bouncing along.

Odds Are’ features guitar and stomping beginnings for an uplifting, groovy, and nice bouncy rock with a dose of pop. It sounds more like good wine with an ideal balance. ‘Best Damn Friend’ is notable for its clever lyrics. You may be taken to sink in.

Keepin’ It Real’ does not sound angry despite its being dark, edgy, and somehow desolate. Some listeners think it has a theme that is more eco-activist. There is character as the song talks about the perils of destroying our planet.

Give It Back to You has gritty lyrics with a deeper sentiment. The song could easily be one’s favorite in the entire album. ‘Did I Say that Out Loud’ returns to the peppy, fun sound that the group is more known for. It serves as a sweet and safe interlude.

Daydreamin’ catches attention through its funky electronic rock sound. It easily grows inside listeners. In this track, the band’s keyboardist also served as its vocalist. The full effect is brought about by the vocal techno distortion.

Smile’ sounds like an accordion. It can easily be compared to the usually pop-cowboy sounds from Nashville stars. ‘Crawl’ features nice, smooth, and full guitar work. It serves as a perfect wrap up song for the album. It has a litany of metaphors, which indicate struggles in life. It may sound fun but the words are not happy.

Overall, this Grinning Streak by Barenaked Ladies album review asserts that the CD is full of signature style songs. By the end of the album, there could be a sense of balance.
