With their debut album Ben Folds Five unleashed their unique style on the world, with their follow up 'Whatever and Even Amen' they do it again, only more so. Their first album they were dubbed a novelty act, here with 'Brick' it is one-hit-wonder. 'Brick' however is considered by many Ben Folds Five fans to be one of their worst songs, and it is definitly my least favorite on this album. With the "hit" as the low point, the high points of the album are the funky 'Steven's Last Night In Town', the somber 'Evaporated', and 'Kate' which I would rank in the top five songs of the 90's. This is a change from the normal radio rock, ballad, and pop songs. The trio incorporates jazz, blues, and country into a mixture that is pure fun. It is one of the few "alternative" albums that actually sounds like an alternative.
