Good Tunes but Better Ones on Offer
on 28 July 2013
Ok. This contains some of Ben's best songs Cooler than You, Learn to live with what you are, B*tches Ain't S*** etc.
But there were some tunes that should have got on there instead.
Rent a Cop, Adelaide, Songs of Love are not the best selections, Rent a cop is funny, Adelaide is catchy however there are better songs on the EPs he took his songs from.
>Protection - The piano is amazing and very rocky, the lyrics are humorous and the vocals are strong.
>Rockstar - The meaning of this song is very strong, It sounds like a song Elton John or Billie Joel would right a real classic.
>Wandering - Beautiful, slow song.
On the most part these songs are a great showcase of Ben Folds talent, The Vocals (Get Your Hands of my Woman), the lyrics (Still), The Piano (In Between Days).
All things considered fantastic album, but I would switch those 3 songs around.
