Product Description

Product Description

Supersunnyspeedgraphic, the LP (CD) is a compilation of 12 tracks from Ben Folds' internet EPs, b-sides, and a bonus track from the "Over The Hedge" soundtrack. All of the tracks are different from the original versions: they've been partially re-recorded or remixed, and all have been remastered.

Amazon.ca

Once you figure out where the title comes from, it makes perfect sense. Supersunnyspeedgraphic is a convenient collection assembled primarily from limited edition EPs Super D, Sunny 16, and Speed Graphic. The 12-track release, which follows Songs for Silverman and the Over the Hedge soundtrack, also culls from The Bens EP with Bens Kweller and Lee (a word to the expectant mothers out there: if you want your son to become an alternative pop star, just name him Benjamin). Longtime listeners know what to expect from Folds--Joe Jackson-esque vocals, clever wordplay, and tuneful melodies that rely more on keyboards than strings. For the uninitiated, it all probably sounds pretty commercial, but there's some risqué material here. As with Harry Nilsson and Randy Newman, who excelled at enveloping edgy lyrics in radio-ready trappings, there are a few numbers on this rerecorded, remixed, and remastered disc that won't be rocking the airwaves anytime soon, like the piano man's stately version of Dr. Dre's "Bitches Ain't S**t." Depending on your point of view, the online sensation is either admirably ironic or unalterably offensive. Folds's more straightforward covers of the Cure's "In Between Days" and the Darkness's "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" are unlikely to ruffle as many feathers, but they're a better fit for his jaunty power pop-meets-new wave style. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

An Appeasing Gem of Underground Hits Jan. 1 2007
By Joseph Schlegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection of songs very easily could have never seen the light of day, having been available already on four separate online-only releases. However, it is a great assistance to connoisseurs of fine music that this work is now available in one easily-accessible disc. Supersunnyspeedgraphic represents the creative work of Ben Folds over the last few years in a better manner than could have been done otherwise, and it fits perfectly alongside his other flawless productions. The album contains tracks that are well-written lyrically, as well as a number of songs displaying masterful musical technique. The album is worth purchasing for the cover of Dr. Dre's "B****es Ain't S***" alone, but you'll be equally surprised by the number of fine quality tracks that exist in addition to the slow rap extravaganza.

Worth It Dec 22 2006
By Daniel E. Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been a rabid fan since Whatever and Ever Amen (Ben Folds Five). Here's the thing: you COULD go and buy the 3 EP's, and I have all of them, but I also bought this (Supersunnyspeedgraphic) and believe it or not I am glad I did. Unlike another reviewer here, I actually thought the remixing and addition of bass and extra piano and some other instrumentation really helped most of these songs, gave them a more "full," professional sound. And I gotta say, as a whole this album is much more fun than Songs for Silverman, which should have been a lot better given how good these Internet-only EP's were. Anyhow, as you can tell, I will buy anything and everything with Ben's name on it, and I found enough good stuff on this one to justify the purchase. Unlike others, I love "All You Can Eat"'s social commentary. The Dr. Dre cover, of course, is hilarious and memorable, while the Cure cover is near perfect. Buy this, it's a lot of fun, and even though the other reviewers are right about the album feeling disjointed, song for song it's better than Silverman....that's gotta be worth something.

Fantastic Surprise Dec 27 2006
By Alain Blanc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first couple songs are a bit mediocre on the first go. However the rest of the album makes up for it, beginning with the infamous B.tches Ain't ..... I outgrew rap a long time ago, but hearing this song was refreshing. It's amazing how alternative rock can make such a decadent song sound so good. Along with BAS, the remaining pieces are worth listening to more than once. I must have listened to this album about 10 times consecutively. If you're down on your luck and just want to relax to laid-back humorous and inspirational music, just put in Ben Folds.

Not the best Ben Folds ever, just the best released this month. Nov. 2 2006
By D. V. Beck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With a great, Krupa-esque drum groove and swingin' horns, "Rent a Cop" is a blast. "All U Can Eat" is another story. Where the earlier "Uncle Walter" was real, knowing, and very funny, "All U can Eat" is the kind of smug, simplistic cant about SUVs and Wal-Mart that you'd expect to hear from the tote-baggers down at Starbucks - but the music is cool. Interesting covers - "Bitches" is amazing and weird as Folds proves that the emotional content of a song comes at least as much from the music as from the lyrics.

Yeah, it gets a 3, but remember: A Ben Folds 3 is most people's 5.

Where the heck are Nov. 1 2006
By John Lawler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wandering and Kalamazoo? These are the works of genius needed to spark this baby. Kalamazoo is particularly eclectic and sad... or at least give us the original Give Judy my Notice

Adelaide is great stuff as is Rent a Cop and Bruised and Still, and B**ches is hilarious, but this compilation feels like and odds and sods. Still any Folds is good Folds. Full SuperD EP is highly recommended
