We gave it an B

This band is the Ogden Nash of Canadian pop, so bent on writing wacky rhyming couplets that the songs sound like excerpts from clever children’s books after a while. This is what their fans demand from them, so in that sense, the Ladies’ latest CD delivers, albeit with less caffeinated friskiness than in the past. But it’s the earnest attempts — the clever kiss-off ”Aluminum,” the tender ”Have You Seen My Love?” — that linger beyond a knowing snicker.
