4.0 out of 5 stars This album is just the tip of the iceberg. 27 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you are at all new to the Ben Folds Five experience, i suggest you start where they did; with the self titled debut album. There is not a dull moment on the whole CD. Every track is pure musical genius, however, clearly the band have not decided which musical path to take at this point which i think is beneficial in the debut as it displays the variety of styles which the trio are capable of projecting. On first listen, you may find it slightly off beat and difficult to "get into" but the second time you press play you will be astounded by the sheer melodic beauty of tracks such as Philosophy, Where's Summer B, and the unforgettable Sports and Wine. The lyrics are easy to relate to and hilarious references to Uncle Walter spitting while he is talking, with tobacco rolling down his chin, makes listening to this CD such an enjoyable experience, you'll be so sad when it's finished, you'll just listen to it all over again! For the sake of your smile, Buy this album! It will make you enjoy life even more!

5.0 out of 5 stars 11 years of bliss 9 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
Chris Evans first introduced me to Ben Folds when Underground was his record of the week back in 95! Since then i bought the album and i have been a total ben folds disciple!

This first album Rocks! From the wicked Best imatation through to the beautiful waltz of Boxing. I have seen the Ben Folds five seven times in London and Ben Folds twice!

He is God and long may he reign!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is truly fantastic 8 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want some inventive, original, uplifting music then you NEED this album. Ben Folds Five are a three-piece of piano, bass and drums like you have never heard before and their songs range from quietly uplifting to blatantly cheerful and everything inbetween. It is music you can never grow tired of and which is unmatched by any other band I've ever heard. For any one who really appreciates what music should be then this album should definitely be in your basket.

5.0 out of 5 stars a melodious masterpiece of modern pop music 23 Dec 1999
Format:Audio CD
A stunning debut of an albumn... With just Piano ( Ben Folds ), Bass ( Robert Sledge ) and Drums ( Darren Jesse ) , Ben Folds Five manage to pull off the most overwhelmingly listenable record of the decade. From the funky opening of 'Jackson Cannery', to the fantastic string arangement in the finale 'Boxing', this albumn contains some of the most catchy melodies and devoted lyrics in pop music without taking away from the spectacular musicianship. This albumn is a must for anyone with a passion for interesting pop music or quite simply anyone who enjoys being impressed by sheer musical talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best impulse buy ever 13 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd after seeing a short piece about bf5 on VH1. This is the best cd I own, just ahead of every other bf5 cds I have! Ben Folds is a piano genius and the quality of his lyrics are superb. This band should get more recognition and should certainly have more people listening to them. Fantastic

5.0 out of 5 stars A great chill out album 25 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Everyone has in their cd collection those cds that never get played and then there are those cds that find their way back to the hi-fi time and time again regardless of age. This is a classic example of one of those albums. 'Philosophy' and 'Underground' being the clear stand out tracks on the album. With Philosophy ending with one of the most influential solo pianist peices that i have ever heard. In summary a well rounded album just put it on and relax!!

Format:Audio CD
The biggest difference between these guys and you're average band is the lack of a lead guitarist,replaced with the tinkling of the ivories by Mr Ben Folds.I'm not really into most american bands but these guys are different sounding more musically akin to the likes of Randy Newman than any of their contemparies.This brilliant debut has too many high points to mention but standout tracks are the brilliant"Philosophy"with its wonderfully energetic piano solo towards the end,boy would I like to see that live,"Where's summer B"a perfectly delirious summer tune "Alice Childress" and "Boxing" which sounds like it was lifted straight from a broadway musical and closes the album perfectly.An album packed with genuine tunes,and a must for any serious muso.
