  • Can't burn to disc or download to iTunes library because it's from "Apple Music" :(

    Very dissapointed I cannot burn this album to disc nor download it to my iTunes library apparently because it's from "Apple Music" and not iTunes. Oh, wait: except for "Annie Waits", "Landed", "Brick", "Philosophy" and "Underground". Why those five tracks are not covered under the Apple Music DRM crap I don't know, but I've now spent $20 on a Ben Folds Compliation for which I can only put 5 tracks on a CD. I love the album but want to make CDs of it so I can listen to it in the car, but apparnetly Apple doesn't want to let me do that.

    CompPLETEly concur. This compilation needs some reigning in, some discernment. Too much, too uneven.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else excited that the new song "House" on the Retrospective is attributed to Ben Folds Five. A new album would be great!
  • Ben is the best.

    In my opinion, Ben Folds is the most talented man on the planet. His music is so original, and the songs are beautiful. I love Ben. You'd be ridiculous not to buy this album.
  • I don't get it

    Everyone i talk to who has heard of this guy loves him, i thought i would check it out. I don't get it, he just isn't that good, maybe it's just my taste but i cant seem to find a song that i enjoy.
  • Wow.

    Disc 1 is not his most popular music.. but what he thinks is his best work (a very significant difference, one that I find to be refreshing). Disc 2 is a live CD, and it's absolutely great. I can't believe how every song is played so meticulously, so perfectly. Disc 3 is my favorite of all... a true insight into a great artist. The unreleased stuff... the stuff that he thought nobody would ever hear... and we are lucky enough to have that chance now. I was fortunate enough to meet Ben Folds at a music-conference in New York and the man is just pure genius. He's hilarious, quaint, sophisticated, and most of all humbled by everything that has happened to him. A true artist in my opinion. Cheers to a great musician and a legacy of outstanding albums.
  • I Love Ben Folds

    I love Ben 'n' the band & will aways buy his music. He's my absolute favorite! A note for the suggestion box: I just wish he had the option of "clean" versions to the songs so that I could listen to his music freely among my parents and friends' children. Please think about it Ben!! Other than that, I love it!
  • How do I love Ben, let me count the ways…...

    I'm a huge fan and just like most everyone else I have a lot of these songs already. But I'm still excited about this and can't wait to listen to the many live versions that I haven't heard before. In my opinion you can never go wrong with Ben.
