Editorial Reviews

Out of print on vinyl since its original release/first time mastered for vinyl.

The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner is the third and final studio album released by Ben Folds Five before their break up in 2000. Folds' unique and clever piano-based songwriting shines through on the album, with songs and arrangements that reflect his evolving artistic development. The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner, with its title humorously taken from the name used on drummer Darren Jessee's former teenage fake ID, includes singles 'Army' and 'Don't Change Your Plans,' and is regarded by the composer himself as the band's 'best work.' As the highly-anticipated follow up to the platinum-selling Whatever & Ever Amen, the album was initially dismissed by critics. In subsequent years however, it received a critical reevaluation and has become the hidden gem of Folds catalog.

The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner has since been out of print on vinyl for 15 years and is now, for the first time ever, being reissued on 180-gram vinyl sourced from the original mix reels. Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed and plated at RTI, the album is housed in a Stoughton old style 'tip-on' jacket.
