    I listen to this album at least once a week. It is surprisingly good, and a breath of fresh air. I don't care whether it is cool or not, but I do know that it sounds good, it has great song writing, Ben Folds should be heartily congratulated for his efforts here.

  1. It's that sobering confessional quality that gives the album an unexpected dose of depth and grace.
  2. For an album I approached ready to shrug off as sheer novelty, its humor and candor give it a fair amount of staying power.
  3. The problem, of course, is that Shatner knows he’s Shatner now. And so does everyone else. It’s the joke that stops being funny after you hear the premise.
