I'm not much of a Nick Horny fan- obviously, High Fidelity was pretty special but that's about as far as my knowledge goes. I am, however, a massive Ben Folds fan and was excited to get this album as soon as it came out. I have to be honest and say that it didn't live up to my expectations but after a few listens and counting it is really growing on me. Part of the appeal of Ben Folds to me has always been his lyrics which are often quite personal, idiosyncratic and entertaining so it was was a bit strange hearing an album where he was singing someone else's lyrics. After a while it starts to grow on you, though. Favourite track thus far is Belinda.
Not for everyone but if you like Ben Folds you will like this.
