Maroon is the fifth studio album by the band Barenaked Ladies released on 2000-09-12. It was produced by Don Was and features mostly alternative rock music. For this album, Steven Page and Ed Robertson collaborated together with most of the songs much like how they did when they started their band. The album was very successful selling over 1,000,000 copies in the US alone.
Maroon came out while I was dating a young woman who loved BNL, so I heard it just as it was release, and listened to it frequently. While I wasn't a huge fan of it to begin with, I do remember instantly enjoying Pinch Me. After she and I broke up, I continued to like the band and ended up buying most of their albums. This was either the first or second album of theirs I bought, and my second favorite. In addition to memories of younger less-responsible days, the positive themes in the songs, and upbeat sound of most of the tracks, listening to this album always just makes me feel good.
I own this album on CD.
The album's total score is 380.
