2.0 poorMicah-Nahum Ferguson. | November 29th 12

After the consistency of "Gordon," Barenaked Ladies shake off all of their good qualities to make an incredibly messy and generally dull album. The band seems to attempt an about-face by creating more straight-forward rock tunes, but fails and goes nowhere.

3.0 goodCynicalComplex | February 5th 12

Instrumentally, Maybe You Should Drive ranks as one of the Ladies' strongest efforts; Jim and Andy Creeggan are at the top of their game. Andy left the band shortly after the album was complete; his jazz-inflected keyboards were one of the best features of the earliest BnL albums.

Steven Page characterized this album as "difficult", largely because of producer Ben Mink's influence. Even if most of the songs have BnL's trademark tongue-in-cheek humor, the melodies are ordered and layered, not freewheeling. This leaves much of MYSD with a bit of a disconnected feel.

This is, however, an underrated album, and there are still a few tracks that are quite worth your time. Highlights include "Jane", "A", "Alternative Girlfriend", and "Life, in a Nutshell"
