Alternative PressIt's a handy metaphor for the record, and Folds in general: Obsessed with love but with a careful eye for the absurd, humanizing details. [Nov 2008, p.160]

I get tired of critics expecting fun or angsty artists to mellow outI like Ben Folds when he is fun. Lately he has been awfully serious.
I get tired of critics expecting fun or angsty artists to mellow out in their 30's and 40's. They reprimand their music for being "amateurish" (allmusic.com quote) if they are still brash and bratty later in their years and that is what has happened here.
Hiroshima, Dr Yang, Went Nuts, and Effington are really fun songs and remind me of early Ben Folds. And he always has great ballads and Cologne and Kylie from Connecticut fit great.
The rest is pretty blah and an EP of just the above songs would have been stellar. "You Dont Know Me" is an okay tune too
I like this wayyy better than Songs For Silverman. I mean, great you made a song for your daughter. Who Cares? Sing it to her cause I sure don't know Gracie… Expand
