Ben Folds is a very interesting artist and with Stems & Seeds he has pushed himself even more into the audio junkies favor. This is basically a continuation of his WAY TO NORMAL album, containing different mixes and performances from that earlier release with mock-songs (sometimes containing similar titles) that were "leaked" before the CD to misinform his fan base. In some cases the Mock tracks are better than the originals like in "Free Coffee Town". There are live performances, "You Don't Know Me" (actually a rehearsal for Conan O'Brien) that's fun, a piano orchestra version of "Cologne" with wonderful use of Choir, and even a kooky version of "Hiroshima" in Japanese that's just as good as the original - All of this is on the 2nd Disc! Here's where things get interesting... Besides the drug connotation of the title, the Stems aspect refers to the straight audio files contained in disk one of all the instruments on separate files which will allow the listener, with the right equipment, to basically make their own sound mix, or even remix the CD entirely! If you are a passing Ben Folds fan all of this is overkill and just the previous WAY TO NORMAL will suffice, but to Ben Folds loyal fans this is heaven!
