Ben Folds Five

The Sound of the Life of the Mind

“The Sound of the Life of the Mind”

The title track from Ben Folds Five’s newest and much-anticipated (after something like 12 years!) album is one of my favorites. It retains the classic feel of Ben Folds Five while still feeling new. I almost wanted to say that this new album feels like a throwback to the days when the band was still going strong, but at the same time, it doesn’t. It feels new, it feels current – it feels like growth.

And yet, it still feels like home to me.
