CD Reviews

Great album with filler tacked on.
Brian E. Kidd | Southgate, KY | 04/24/2005

"This album is considered by a lot of folks to be Ben Folds Five's best album. It certainly was their most commercially successful. Any way you slice it, it's purty darned good. This reissue sounds marginally better than the original release, but the selling point is ostensibly the seven extra tracks that have been included. Well, I'm here to tell you folks that they're not all gold. All of the tracks have been available officially and unofficially for some time and if you're a BFF fan, then most likely you already have them. "Video Killed the Radio Star", "She Don't Use Jelly", and "Air" are decent tracks but the others are strictly for completists only. If you don't already own the album, then by all means pick it up; the original is killer and worth the price alone. If you already have a copy of the original release, then the slight increase in sonic quality and the extra tracks aren't really worth shelling out another $15 to line the pockets of the record company. Go to Ben Folds' website and buy his recent EPs instead. He gets a much bigger cut of the money that way. ;)"

"Ben Folds/Five are one of the few artists (out of tons of genres that I like to listen to) that have risen to the top of the must-have-in-my-library list. This CD is worth more than it costs."
Better than your average reissue

"If you are a recent Ben Folds Five Fan, this is a great album to start with, as it contains many of the songs that launched the band to mainstream popularity including "Brick" and "Battle of Who Could Care Less." The reason you should start here, instead of with the original recording, are the extras... (Including a cover of "Video Killed the Radio Star," and the flaming lip's "She Don't Use Jelly.") Most reissues are simply a way to capitalize on a fan base that must have everything an artist has done. If you are looking to add to your Ben Fold's collection, this disc has a significant amount of new material which makes it better than your average reissue."
