Album Review

While many record companies and musicians ran cowering into their closet when faced with the digital music revolution, a few astute ones like Ben Folds quickly moved to embrace it, and the new opportunities it afforded to break away from the suddenly restrictive-feeling full album format. In Folds' case this took the shape of three five-song EPs also made available through mail order via his own Attacked by Plastic imprint (and, later, partly compiled into the Supersunnyspeedgraphic, The LP CD), of which Sunny 16 was the second and arguably most consistent. It opens with a textbook Ben Folds nerd anthem in "There's Always Someone Cooler Than You"; proceeds through the string-laden "Learn to Live with What You Are," the ruthless indictment of American intemperance, "All U Can Eat," the similarly jaded, sardonic "Rockstar," and concludes with a bittersweet "Songs of Love," originally recorded by the Divine Comedy.

Customer Reviews

This is the best of those 3 eps.

I know that a lot of people will argue that Super D is the best, but this has got to be the one. All U Can Eat, Always Someone Cooler Than You, Songs of Love, and Learn to Live With What You Are are all among my favorites. I know this album had a bit more language than others, but the messages were more honest and poignant than anything else he's done. As an added note, if you are ever looking for a great live performer, go see Ben. He doesn't tour like he used to now that he's moved to Australia, but he never does a bad show and he does stuff from his BFF days too. He usually brings along a few good (if obscure) artists as well. His concerts have introduced me to the music of Rufus Wainwright, Eef Barzelay, and even the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and I’ve never been disappointed by one of his shows. He's down to Earth and very personable. He really makes the audience feel at home.

Just buy this, not the LP

Unless you're a hardcore BF fan, that is. Even then, these are the best 5 songs on the LP and they're all together. Actually quite a powerful little EP. You won't regret it.

Oh God Yes!

Ok this is for sure the best EP put into the Supersunnyspeedgraphic LP. There's Always Someone Cooler Than You is one of the best, funniest, and most original songs I've ever heard. All You Can Eat and the others are up there too with the best of Ben. I LOVE BEN FOLDS!!!
