Product Description

Ben Folds - Supersunnyspeedgraphic - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

You could be forgiven for never having considered exactly what the sweaty, inflated machismo of The Darkness' "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" would sound like played on the old Joanna by a straight-laced looking bloke called Ben with a sensible haircut. But then you probably don't lurk on Ben Folds fan-site forums after dark, do you? You've probably never made claims that Folds has done for the piano pop song what Hendrix did for the guitar either. You might be right on that one, but you're certainly all the poorer for having never heard that cover, all warm falsetto-fired super-harmonies and intense hammering at both ends of the piano. And that's before we even start considering The Cure's "In Between Days" as breezy concerto and a thrillingly subversive reworking of Dr Dre's misogynistic "Bitches Ain't Shit" as an ELO-style ballad with dead-pan enunciation of street cussing all the way to the finish line. All of these are gathered from celebrated internet-only EP releases from the last couple of years onto one physical release for the first time, along with original works like the deep string-sewn tapestry "Still", which confirm the solo Ben Folds to be one of the most accomplished and quirky talents in US indie. --James Berry

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.

Oh I could get in a bugbear about this. You're a loyal fan. You spend a lot of money buying "internet only" ep's (paying a fortune in postage from overseas to boot) and then a little further down the line you find out that most of these tracks are collected together on a single disc best of. But wait, don't go, because whilst you may have all of the tracks already you can get an autographed booklet and a free bonus DVD with "classic" video's on it.

Firstly, despite the blurb that these are all brand new recordings or remasters of the original's we already have, you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference most of the time.

Anyway, if you like Ben's crazy cover versions at his live gigs, you'll enjoy his take on The Darkness' Get Your Hands Off My Woman and Dr Dre's Bitches Ain't S**t (the latter of which works surprisingly well as a piano-driven ballad). His version of The Cure's In Between Days is also to be found on here and is the most straightforward reworking of the three; if you like the original you'll enjoy this too.

And as much as I might frown at the fact that I've got most of these tracks already, Ben has at least had the decency to throw in the best one's from his EP collection. I'm particularly fond of There's Always Someone Cooler Than You, All U Can Eat and Rent A Cop.

Throw in a slice of The Bens, and a soundtrack song from Over The Hedge and you have a collection that is good, if not a must-have (especially if you have any of the afforementioned EP's from which the tracks are taken).

Still if you weren't able to snap up the EP's at the time and you're a Ben Folds fan, well then you'll have nothing to complain about will you?

Be careful with this odd little compilation. You might think (from the title) that this will give you all the tracks from the 3 EPs - Speed Graphic, Sunny 16, Super D - but it only contains 9 of those tracks and omits 6. Why ? Who knows. Then it adds a Dr Dre cover, a song from an animated film soundtrack, and a superb track from the hard-to-find "Bens" EP; this last one might alone be worth the price of the album.

I was already a huge fan of Ben. So i was expecting a brilliant album. I could, if i wanted, have downloaded all four EP's that comprise this album separately. But i bought the album instead. And my god, is it good. Just listen to the two opening tracks. They will explain it all.

I don't have the time to write a full review. But my god, this is good.
