Disc 1 is not his most popular music.. but what he thinks is his best work (a very significant difference, one that I find to be refreshing). Disc 2 is a live CD, and it's absolutely great. I can't believe how every song is played so meticulously, so perfectly. Disc 3 is my favorite of all... a true insight into a great artist. The unreleased stuff... the stuff that he thought nobody would ever hear... and we are lucky enough to have that chance now. I was fortunate enough to meet Ben Folds at a music-conference in New York and the man is just pure genius. He's hilarious, quaint, sophisticated, and most of all humbled by everything that has happened to him. A true artist in my opinion. Cheers to a great musician and a legacy of outstanding albums.

It is not his most popular music.. but what he thinks is his best work (a very significant difference, one that I find to be refreshing and authentic). It's on spotify for free to listen to right now before you purchase! I was fortunate enough to meet Ben Folds at a music-conference in New York and the man is just pure genius.
