"There’s Always Someone Cooler Than You" was going to be a sigh of regret for those of us who no-one remembers from school, or a word of warning to all the jocks who think they’re The Fonz. I was looking forward to it and it didn’t disappoint. No one ever remembers me.
As the first of five tracks from "Sunny 16" – the new E.P. by Ben Folds – Cooler Than You sets the tone and delivers what his fans have come to expect. Piano driven pop-rock, melodies for drumming on the steering wheel and lyrics that capture the life around you – "All You Can Eat" - or have you sitting in quiet contemplation – "You’ve Got To Learn To Live With What You Are".
Ben Folds, formerly of Ben Folds Five, released his first solo effort in 2001 – "Rockin’ The Suburbs" and followed that with the old and new on stage material of "Ben Folds Live". The North Carolina born singer/songwriter is set to release a third album, but until then he is giving visitors of his website and live shows a peek into what might be on there. "Speed Graphic" was the first E.P. back in July last year, "Sunny 16" followed in September and he has recently released "The Bens" – a collaboration with Ben Lee and Ben Kweller. According to the site, Ben wanted to avoid upping the price for the big record stores and be forced to ‘pose naked at the piano’. Folds, by putting out a record for those who are already his fans, evidently wants to avoid becoming ‘a slave to these people’ – a sentiment expressed in "Rock Star", the fourth track on the E.P.
These are four great tracks and a fine cover of "Songs of Love" by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy and the fact that it’s an E.

If this EP is anything to go by, Ben Folds' next album is going to be the masterpiece he's promised for so long but has never quite delivered. He is a fantastically gifted songwriter and performer, but the real classic on this EP is one he didn't write - the Divine Comedy's "Songs of Love". Absolutely wonderful, a clear improvement on the original, and I sincerely hope it gets the airtime it deserves.

This is second of the EPs released by the genius Ben Folds. The EP gives you all the diffrent aspects of Ben a few slow and meaningful songs and the up beat songs such as 'Theres always someone cooler than you' - This EP also contains one of my favourite Ben Folds tracks 'All u can eat' and therefore is one to buy if you are a True Ben folds Fan!!

HASH(0x9d901b58) out of 5 stars ben folds writes great songs 14 Nov. 2003
By Carson Steimle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I found this EP on the Ben Folds site, and I think it is one of his best. "There's Always Someone Cooler Than You", "Learn to Live With What You Are", and "Rock Star", are good songs, but "All You Can Eat" and "Songs of Love" are simply amazing. All You Can Eat is a song Ben writes telling his son about the problems our nation, or more specifically, it's people, have. it is Ben's best song to date (in my opinion). Finally, Songs of Love is a beautiful ballad to end the record, as Ben always does.
Hard to find, but worth the search.
HASH(0x9d68348c) out of 5 stars Not quite as good as /Speed Graphic/, but still strong. 22 April 2005
By Oz Backlund - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
/Sunny 16/ is definitely not without its charm. It's best when Folds is doing his usual sunny and sarcastic pop, as in "All U Can Eat" and "There's Always Someone Cooler Than You." The lovely closer, "Songs of Love," is another highlight, swaying along on a waltz beat as the piano and strings dance. The other two tracks, "Learn to Live with What You Are" and "Rock Star," essentially sound the same: nondescript mid-tempo pop tracks that neither inspire nor offend. They're not bad, per se, but I doubt they'd make the cut on an actual Folds album. They do bring the experience down, though, which is a shame given the quality of the rest of the material. Pick up /Speed Graphic/ if you want to hear Folds at his finest in this EP collection, but /Sunny 16/ is still a nice investment for its strong material, which is among the best in the EP trio.

HASH(0x9d65f36c) out of 5 stars Beautiful Music without the poppy irreverance of the "five" 9 Feb. 2005
By Matthew Buck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ben's music after the band broke up has had a melancholy sadness to it. It's not the pop fun or even pop seriousness that he had while recording with Darren and Robert. I can't realistically see any songs from the 3 EPs he's released since he stopped recording for Sony. It's good music to cry by.
HASH(0x9d829e70) out of 5 stars AMAZING!! 25 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great EP! I love Ben Folds and his work just keeps getting better. The album takes on an ironic look at society, in a very Ben Folds-esque kind of way. I would say that this EP's sound is closer to Rockin' The Suburbs than any of his other albums.
