This cd is most definitely a keeper and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoyed Sha Sha or just for anyone who enjoys great music in general.

This is easily one of the most aptly titled albums in recent memory. While Kweller's 2002 debut Sha Sha was oodled over by critics everywhere for it's youthful passion and innocent persona, retreading that same ground too many times would never establish him any real respect as a mature capable musician. Kweller realizes that, and on his second release he is doing his best to mature and grow while still respecting and conserving elements of his quirky youthfulness. So while he hasn't completely evolved and grown up yet, he displays on this release that he is undoubtedly On His Way.

On Sha Sha Kweller skirted between tongue in cheek humor and emotional depth all while demonstrating extroidinary musicianship and creativity. Combine that with his giddy innocence and you had package that was extremely believable and easy to connect with. There was nothing fake about him, and you could tell. The biggest concern in his maturation is whether or not this connection would be lost.

Thankfully it wasn't. Kweller has managed to grow as a musician and develop his sound and style while still retaining the sense that everything he is doing is sincere. Upon listening it is apparent that he hasn't so much changed his style, but rather he's just grown within what he has previously established. There is a greater influence here from the recent surge of "rock saviors" (i.e. Strokes, White Stripes), opposed to his last run-around which was a largely Weezer influenced affair. However, though these influences have grown tedious over the past several months, Kweller feels genuine and fresh. Again he feels real, not part of the bandwagon.

As a general rule the lyrics are a more serious affair this time around.

Normally I wouldn't stick my foot in and write a review like this, but I gotta disagree with the folks that are dissing this album by saying it's not as good as Sha Sha. This album is gorgeous, chock full of catchy hooks and low-key singing.

Kweller's pipes are thin and whiney, but sounds almost cute in the context of the self-deprication that fills his lyrics, and his band completely rocks out in the backing tracks.

Every track is catchy, and the sparse production allows this thing to feel like a simply-recorded 4-track hometape (although with none of the scratchyness that would come with such a recording).

No pretention, no rock-stadium ethos, no let down.

I wanted to give this 5 stars, I really did. I think if I could give it 3.5 stars I would, but I'll round up just because I love Ben so much.
It just doesn't...gel quite as well as Sha Sha did. I'm not really sure the way they recorded this was the way to go. Ethan Johns is famous for his "1960's" studio recording techniques whereby no one in the studio is wearing headphones, everybody is just in one big room with all the amps, and it results in a more live, raw sound. Ben has said he couldn't hear himself singing at all while they were recording - sometimes his voice is off-key, and he chalks it up to a "passion before pitch" approach that has worked for the likes of Bob Dylan (or maybe even Nina Simone). I'm sorry Ben, but you're not Dylan. It just doesn't quite work as well.
Overall the songs just kind of plod along (except maybe "The Rules"), and BK's not quite as sharp lyrically as he was on Sha Sha. For people who've never heard him before I would definitely suggest Sha Sha over this.

Ben's 2002 release of "Sha-Sha" may always be the gem of his career (it certainly is of my cd collection). His rock/pop/folk mix flowed surprisingly well throughout the album. Tracks like "Commerce, TX" and "Wasted and Ready" stood out as the catchy and head-banging alternative/rock anthems he so desperately wanted to put out, but he was able to tone it down via his piano skills with songs such as "In Other Words" and "Falling". In his follow-up album, "On My Way" Ben is exactly that -- on his way to a new place in his musical career. Don't expect this album to sound anything like "Sha-Sha", but don't let that turn you away. With this album, Kweller experiments with a "raw" studio sound, blasting out love rock ballads whose lyrics might be misinterpreted as corny if it weren't for the catchy guitar riffs and power chords bakcing them. Tracks like "Rules", "I Need You Back", and "Ann Disaster" provide us with Kweller's rock side, while "Living Life" tones it down with Ben's signature flowing piano melodies. The title track seems like an afterthought of a song thrown onto the cd, but nonetheless is a good song. After it's all said and done, this album won't blow you away as "Sha-Sha" did, but it does provide for a great listen and stands as evidence of Kweller's maturation as a musician and willingness to try new things. Expect Kweller's popularity to continue its rise.

"Sha Sha" was quite a revelation for me. It was heavily promoted in 2002 and I was immediately turned off-- for the amount of advertising dollars spent on it, I couldn't imagine the record was halfway decent. I was blown away, however, when I did wind-up listening to the entire record after hearing "Wasted & Ready."
I don't see this record as such a massive departure for Kweller, either. Someone likened him to Weezer's Rivers Cuomo. The comparison holds up, but I don't see it as negative as Cuomo summarily gave up writing emotional, heart-felt pop songs, to pure, formulaic, polished diddys. In essence, Kweller fills the gap Cuomo left by turning commercial.
"On My Way" is certainly more sparse than Kweller's first album. Things start out well and good with "I Need You Back" and "Hospital Bed." Kweller turns a bit more introspective in "My Apartment." Then the record begins to fall flat as we reach the title track, "On My Way." Without a melody and singing lyrics that seem well out of Kweller's own experience, "On My Way" lacks the same genuine honesty as its precursor, "My Apartment."
A few more tracks help to salvage the album-- including "Down" and "Believer." "Living Life" seems like a dishonest hold-over from Sha Sha, and it shows. "Ann Disaster" is probably the worst song that Kweller has written-- or, at least, released.
More than half the album is vintage Kweller and worth owning, but buyers should be ware that "On My Way" is not the pop masterpiece, from start to finish, that Kweller fans would expect after his debut "Sha Sha."
