I have been a heavy duty Ben Folds fan since the very beginning, but I didn’t know what to expect with this album and only purchased it because of a crazy good deal that I could not resist. But, I am Very glad that I purchased a copy. The first LP is basically like a standard recent years Ben Folds solo album with some extra orchestral embellishments and the second LP has straight up orchestral pieces on side 3 and side 4 has instrumentals of a few of the songs from the previous disc. All the songs and pieces of music are masterfully crafted and a joy to listen to. And the mastering on this vinyl pressing is top notch. The background is dead quiet and every instrument & vocal performance soars with depth and vibrance. I am thoroughly impressed with this album and would recommend it to any Ben Folds fan or to anyone wanting an inexpensive record to really show off the capabilities of their sound system. UPDATE: The LPs in my copy of this album are 100% the sharpest edged records that I have ever handled. Disc 2 sliced my finger pretty deeply with normal handling. So, be careful with these ones.

The album is terrific; just what I expect from Ben Folds. I saw one of his orchestra-accompanied performances, and this album certainly lives up to that show. The pressing is good and the packing is excellent. Sleeves are good quality and the included extras are very welcome.

My enclosed B&W photos are of the audience at Bonaroo 2008 from the stage, and a self portrait in a mirror using a Rolei at Heiny Hall 2014. The photos are lovely. And, yes there is a lyrics sheet enclosed. There is also a download card enclosed.

I was never much of a fan of the Ben Folds Five, but his solo stuff is astonishing.

Admittedly, I discovered Ben Folds through a show called You're The Worst. He made a guest appearance and I wondered what he sounded like. Well, he's incredibly talented, that's for sure. The sheer variety on this album makes it worthwhile in its own right. I can't get enough of his instrumentals! Definitely recommend this one.
