The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective (1991-2011)

Ever since breaking out of the alternative music scene with his piano, his band Ben Folds Five, and the wildly popular hits “Underground" in 1995 and “Brick” in 1997, Ben Folds has maintained a strong presence as an acclaimed singer-songwriter. With more than three million units sold to date over his 15-year recording career, Folds’s wry, wise, and infectiously melodic keyboard-centric storytelling style continues to delight his fervent fans worldwide.

Digging through his large archive of material, Ben has compiled The Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective (1995-2011). This is the first U.S. comprehensive compilation spanning the career of Ben Folds to date, including a brand new track with the Ben Folds Five. This single-disc, 18-track version features the re-mastered hits, fan favorites, alternate mixes, and one brand-new track by the Ben Folds Five! From the Label

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. 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.
