Ben Folds comes across as so darn nice doesn’t he?
The new album Way To Normal is a ‘grower not a shower'; a polite way of saying it’s got no balls but you might get some action out of it if you have the patience. It consists of cutesy little numbers, a song about losing his dog and a bit of misogyny for good measure. Yay.
Once in a while the album rolls out something that makes you tap your foot and Ben Folds live is worth checking out if only to point and laugh at the crowd he attracts who wear Crocs, have Weetabix for hair and do anal at weddings. Check out title track Way To Normal.
