So There de Ben Folds


So There

Ben Folds

Écouter sur Napster
Label: New West Records
Ben Folds' gentle, hyper-literate songs -- most of them serenades, full of second-person tendernesses and self-effacing detail -- emerge on So There from an exquisitely recorded rustle of piano and woodwinds. Melodies meander and melt, but little touches like the fluttering strings that propel the title track or the multi-tracked wash of harmonies that briefly swell up inside the goofy "Yes Man" lend the languid songs shape and drive. Honorable mention: The ridiculous "F10-D-A" is a gleefully dirty joke for conservatory kids.
