Explicit version of Ben Folds' 2008 album Way to Normal. Ben Folds is best known as a solo artist and as the front-man pianist of Ben Folds Five. He is celebrated for a sound that bridges the worlds of Jazz and Power Rock. Consistently touring, Ben Folds has earned a reputation for his wit, musicality, and energetic live shows. With songs like 'Hiroshima' (which recounts his falling of the stage and hitting his head in Japan), Folds has proven to be a story-teller for the piano-rock generation. Way To Normal is the first full length release since Songs for Silverman, a very honest look at the last few years of Folds' life. Folds collaborated with Dennis Herring (Counting Crows, Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello) and the track 'You Don't Know Me' features a duet with indie songstress, Regina Spektor.
Not an expert on Ben Folds but I love this album. His beautiful voice carries his lyrics which are sometimes funny sometimes sad, always great. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Dmitri I. Glover
Seriously, the man could have an album where he reads Joyce's "Ulysses" and I would totally buy that. In fact, Ben, could you get on that?Published 23 months ago by Elizabeth
Great album Ben at his best. Love almost every song. And I love planting the seed for whom ever reads this as they realize weather or not they're glass is half full or half emptyPublished on August 19, 2013 by Cory W Ryan
Between this album, and the fake versions of all of these songs, this is my favorite Folds album in a while.Published on December 3, 2011 by Dennis Owens Jr.
I'm a huge BF5 fan and also loved Rockin' the Suburbs. In my opinion, this cd is just so-so. All but a couple songs have any spark to them. Read morePublished on May 10, 2011 by musiclover
So if you can't take some tongue-in-cheek comedy with your music, you probably won't like him!
That said, give this album a chance. Read more
