    Awake is the New Sleep is one of my top five favorite albums. Unfortunately, this one doesn't quite measure up, but I love how much Ben Lee wants the listener to have fun and, for the most part, he does a good job of it. I buy his albums... my friends buy his albums... intelligent people interested in sometimes listening to music that isn't completely moody and dramatic just because it can be... that's who buys his albums. This album, while not his best, is still fun! Full Review »

    Really haven't listened to the album much (it's just ok) but had to call Tim M an elitist dildo. Have you heard the album? Not likely because you don't like him. So don't review it. Stick to listening to what Pitchfork tells you to. Full Review »

    Ben Lee is a disgrace in every way. His music is sickly sweet, unimaginative drivel and his lyrics are even worse. Not sure who buys these albums but whoever does is equally to blame for these turds that Ben Lee keeps dropping all over the floor. Full Review »
