Ben Folds best work,
This review is from: Ben Folds Five (Audio CD)
An energetic raw introduction to this eccentric trio. An unusual combo of piano & vocals (Ben Folds), bass and drums works surprisingly well, with Folds hammering-chords more than compensating for the lack of guitar. Many pianists out there will be trying to play his cunning riffs... Put this in the car and you'll soon be bashing the dashboard rather than playing air-guitar at the traffic-lights.
Whilst their later offerings have been more polished, none have been as frantically engaging and down-right fun as this little stormer. Everyone seems to like this stuff, but they don't know who it's by. Lyrically funny, musically inventive and absolutely great fun. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
