1995 Debut Album from Ben Folds Five on 180 Gram Vinyl!
This 1995 debut album is full of Tin Pan Alley showmanship, with a touch of
Something/Anything? era Todd Rundgren meets Look Sharp! era Joe Jackson and an
alternative rock sensibility. Witty, offbeat, piano-based songs helped Ben Folds
Five receive almost universally positive reviews, and spawned five singles. The
record failed to chart, but caused an intense bidding war among the majors
eventually won by Sony Music.
