5.0 out of 5 stars Growing older with Ben Folds Five - and still loving it!, 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like other reviewers I was a bit worried that the magic of the BFF would be lost, or worse tainted, by this new album. How wrong can you be! They are older, and funnily enough so am I, and as if by magic they have written the new soundtrack to your life. Earlier albums reflected the anger and innocence of youth. This is wholly more mature and constructed with purpose and soul. It still has humour, outstanding musicianship and beautiful melody, harmony and lyrics, but it does it with confidence and energy, not a money grabbing "reunion" effort.

First listen "Sky High" and "On being Frank" jump out, but just listen again, and again and I dare you skip a track.

If you like BFF or Ben's solo stuff then this will hit and land very well. If you don't know his stuff then this a good place to start, but you will want to buy "Whatever and ever, Amen" and "Songs for Silverman" very soon afterwards. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain bedroom system, 28 Feb. 2005
Bought this after reading several magazine reviews and I am shocked at the quality of it! It is an absolute steal! As a bedroom / kitchen system it is brilliant. It is also nearly loud enough to fill a bigger room, and it looks classy enough not to have to hide it away.
The fact that the DAB radio is actually quite good is a bonus. Remote control, alarm, DAB tuner, CD, what more do you want! Buy it now!
