It’s been a little less than a year since Ben Folds and his newly re-united band Ben Folds Five have hit us with a new album. Their last effort, The Sound of the Life of the Mind, tended to underwhelm, especially for fans who were eagerly awaiting the return of BFF, who had been broken up since 2000. Reviews never seem to get Ben Folds down, though, and that’s proven to be a decent thing thus far. Now, the good folks over at Speakeasy are premiering Folds’ latest album Ben Folds Five Live which was recorded at the group’s live shows over the past year. After listening to this, there is no doubt in my mind that Ben Folds remains one of the most talented rock-piano players in music history. Stream the full album via The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy and let us know what you think!
