Ben Folds Five were among the most distinctive and inventive bands of the alternative era, beloved for their kinetic live shows and piano-powered popcraft. Now, more than a decade after the Chapel Hill, North Carolina-based trio first said farewell, Ben Folds Five are back and clichés be damned, they're better than ever.
The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind (ImaVeePee Records/Sony Music Entertainment) makes it plain that the years apart have only served to amplify the band's already estimable gifts. Songs like the ebullient first single, "Do It Anyway," or drummer Darren Jessee's elegiac "Sky High" illustrate an increased subtlety as well as a soulfulness born of a truly inimitable group dynamic.
