Worth it for what you get.
on 22 July 2013
What do you get with this album...
3 new studio recordings
*Eddie Walker which is one of Ben Folds best sung stories.
*Emaline a fantastic light song which only missed out on a spot on their first album because it has a guitar(which sounds damn good).
*Tom & Mary a damn funky ass piano led song, real old school Ben Folds Five.
Then there's the live tracks
*Satan Is My Master and The Ultimate Sacrifice - A funny couple of songs with some real badass 'METAL' and badass piano.
*Fanny Packs - Is literally less of a song and more of a humorous back stage messing around session.
A few demos Bad Idea is great and you may not have heard it before and the alternative version of Jackson Cannery is as good as the album one.
With the live recordings of songs you know there are little surprises on piano and bass solos. And the member of the audience who shouted "Who the f are you" in Underground is just perfect.
But the real highlight is the beautiful cover of Built to Spill's 'Twin Falls', it feels as if it was Ben Folds Five song they perform it so well. The album would be worth getting just for this song.
The album is definitely worth the cheap price you can get it for on amazon especially for the amount they packed in there, you kinda wonder how a band that has only 2 albums prior can release an outtakes album, but now we know why, this isn't just a money grabbing scheme this is real good material
