Ben Folds

- Way to Normal

2008-10-20

Accomplishment apparently doesn’t feel ordinary anymore and there is need to find the road back home. It seems Ben may find a conventional life in Effington on his Way To Normal Illinois. He is perplexed that now his affluence results in Free Coffee when he could have really used it more when he was broke. Ben Folds third solo release finds him continuing on his path melodramatic lyricism and key banging melodies which is not so un-normal for him. –While Lee
