Sony's 2015 budget-line compilation Playlist balances rarities and hits. The rarities usually arrive in the form of live tracks and are often some of Ben Folds Five's biggest hits — "Underground" and "Battle of Who Could Care Less" are both here as live versions, not studio. There are also covers — "Video Killed the Radio Star," a live version of "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" — along with the singles "Brick," "Song for the Dumped," and "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces," helping this to turn into a nice sampler of the trio's range, humor, and talent.
Album only cash grab
Title says it all.
This is a great set for new fans, it has their best known songs (from college/alternative radio) and their one really big hit "Brick" . Some are live versions of the album songs. Anyway, as a longtime fan, I think it's a good representation of the band, and it's their only greatest hits compilation. For old fans buying single tracks they don't have (because they have most everything), the album only "Raindrops..." song can be bought separately on iTunes, it's on a Burt Bacharach live compilation, just search for it.
