Biography

Having spent half of his life in the music business, Ben Lee’s quintessential niceness stemming from his Sydney-bred roots has never faded. Call it maturity, but it’s that natural ability to sing from the heart without losing it in the process that makes Lee a true artist. His grasp for the charm of life has never strained, and his mission in crafting meaningful pop music continues ... Read more in Amazon's Ben Lee Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Sing along! 5 May 2009
By ClickmeClickme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let me be the first to defend Ben. Lighten up Rudy klapper. It's not meant to change the world. What's wrong with catchy pop? This is FUN music by a very talented singer.

I met him at a concert last year. Seems like an intellegent very likeable guy.

I can't sing, really not at all, but I can hardly resist singing along (alone in the car that is).

4.0 out of 5 stars Call and Response = Fun! 31 Dec 2009
By Persephone Rising - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I suppose the call and response element to this album would not make much sense to someone who has not been to a Ben Lee Concert, but to me, this album captures fully the Ben Lee Concert Experience. It's not about Ben, it's about the audience having a good time and feeling joyful, even if that means being a little silly.

Likewise, those who have not met Ben would probably consider this album to be cloying or disingenuous, but, really, Ben is one of the most authentic people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. He simply does not care if something comes off as cheesy...he's just being him. Not only that, but he wants YOU to not care if you are being cheesy, too. It's about letting go and living in the moment. This album is a testiment to his personality and eccentric thought process. It takes a big man to align himself with the feminine, so in that respect, this is an extremely brave album.

As for the music itself, Boy w. a Barbie is fantastic, imo. Families Cheating at Boardgames often brings me to tears...somehow he gets the Dysfunctional Family dynamic just right. Love the percussion (by his step-daughter)at the beginning of What's So Bad (About Feeling Good); the message is a good one, too. Fave line "No guilt, all pleasure".
Brad Wood is back producing and that's good news as he did a great job w. Awake is the New Sleep, as well. I think that Ben's music is an acquired taste; some people are going to get it, and some people aren't, and that's ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun; That's Enough For Me 30 Aug 2010
By Bob Dog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I heard "What's So Bad (About Feeling Good)?" from this CD a weeks ago in a public place, wrote down a lyric, looked it up later, and now I am a Ben Lee fan (having listened to all the older material as well).

I like the irreverence, expressed in both the lyrics and the execution of the songs. Perhaps the points he makes aren't the deepest, or most pressing issues in the world today, but sometimes I just want to be entertained by someone with sincerety and wit.

"What's So Bad.." reminded me of Elvis Costello's "What's So Funny About Peace, Love and Understanding," released more than twenty years ago.

Lee occupies a space somewhere between Dylan and Wierd Al (perhaps closer to Wierd Al sometimes!), but I enjoy it.

My father entertained us with half sincere half silly songs on the back patio when I was a kid. Maybe this explains why I will always have a place in my heart for this kind of thing.
5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the Benjamins 2 Nov 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Every Ben Lee Album is different and this one is all pop. And it is fantastic! Although, I have to admit it took me a few listens to come to that opinion. But I have found, that is the mark of a great album. The more you listen to it, the better it gets. I still love Something to Remember Me By better though.
2.0 out of 5 stars worst Ben Lee CD ever 17 Feb 2013
By Scott Mccrary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you are new to Ben Lee please bypass this cd. Try Breathing Tornadoes, Hey You Yes You, or Awake is the New Sleep. This CD is god-awful. I don't even know what to say....there are no catchy melodies. I liked ONE song on this CD, Barbie....

I like Ben Lee but I was truly disappointed with this CD.
