This 1995 debut album is full of Tin Pan Alley showmanship, Something/Anything? era Todd Rundgren meets Look Sharp! era Joe Jackson and alt-rock sensibility. Witty, off-beat, 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.
