Now that Andy Creeggan is out of Barenaked Ladies, one would think that ďAll In Good TimeĒ is going to be Ed Robertsonís album. Thatís the case but not exclusively. Kevin Hearn and Jim Creeggan join in on things by singing five of the fourteen songs. Those five songs arenít bad songs from the band, itís just a little different hearing those songs when weíre not used to listening to either of those guys sing on BNL songs. The Hearn/Jim Creeggan vocals arenít the only different quality on ďAll in Good Time.Ē The music borders on the contemporary side of genres for the majority of the album. Itís a very light and flowing album with very few upbeat tracks to invigorate the experience. Thatís not a terrible thing; itís just not the music youíre used to hearing from this band. That contemporary sound is dominant and a lot of the bandís eccentricities arenít as prevalent on this album. The only real goofy song of note is ďFour Seconds,Ē which also holds the title of the albumís best song. Itís a fun track that sounds like it could be played at a carnival fun-house and itís a welcome change of pace early on in the album. ďAll in Good TimeĒ is really a new page for this band. Theyíre not a different band but they have evolved into a slightly different sound.
