5.0 out of 5 stars A great performer, 2 May 2003
This review is from: Live [CD + DVD NTSC] (Audio CD)
I'm always apprehensive about live performance releases, especially one man shows, but this really offers something different and the addition of the DVD is a masterstroke and I'm surprised noone thought of this before.
The tracks are a good cross section of Ben's career from the Five to his solo material and the lack of a supporting band really doesn't hurt the material as he performs with such charisma and an element of fun that a lot of modern artists (ahemJ-Loahem)don't seem to have. 'Army' stands out and after hearing the live version, your enjoyment of the song will increase ten-fold. The cover of Elton John's 'Tiny Dancer' is a treat, as are most of the other tracks, but anyway...
The DVD is a great thing. More bands should offer this kind of extra on rip-off live albums. The recording isn't of great quality but the performance more than shines through the low definition film. If you liked 'Song For The Dumped' before, the version on the DVD will bowl you over.
This is a great live performance from a great live performer. Ben Folds reinvents a lot of old favourites and injects it with a great deal of fun and charisma that just makes you appreciate how great his career has been up to this point and also bodes well for his career in the future. A must for any Ben Folds fan. 'Whatever and Ever Amen' is still his best.
