USA, 1997, piano rock / alternative rock

Ben Folds FiveWhatever and Ever Amen: I prefer Folds’ solo stuff, but this is an excellent album overall. There’s the catchy lead, “Brick”, of course, but for me, there are two songs that makes this album: “Song for the Dumped” and “Steven’s Last Night in Town”, the former because it’s what we’re all thinking anyway, and the latter because it’s Ben Folds at his most surreal and zany.
