The next song on the album is "Selfless, Cold and Composed". It is written about the all american guy, struggling through relationships, unable to really show his true feelings to people. This is a great, slow, quiet song, clocking in at 6:10, it is the longest track found on the album. "Kate" was released as a single, and is one of my favorite songs by the band. It is a typical crush song, about a girl that you see everyday, but never have the courage to talk to. A great, upbeat song. "Smoke" is a very cool song, featuring Ben on mouth organ, and other unique instruments. The song is about not being able to escape past events in your life. "Cigarette", also known as "Fred Jones, Part 1" is a great interlude, clocking in at a little over a minute. The song is written about Ben's character Fred Jones, and his struggles through daily life. One of my favorite lyrics from the song. . . ". . . Set the house ablaze/With a cigarette"
"Steven's Last Night In Town" explodes out of the ending of cigarette. A fantastically upbeat, fun song. Written about Ben's friend, Steve, who lived with him in an apartment in North Carolina. Steven kept on saying that he would move out of the apartment. He did, but he always kept coming back. A great song with fun lyrics, and great harmonies from Robert and Darren.
"Battle Of Who Could Care Less" was the final single released from Whatever And Ever Amen. "Missing The War" is one of my personal favorite songs off of the album. It is the sister song to "The Last Polka" found on Ben Folds Five first, self-titled album. The meaning is pretty self explanitory.
The B-sides: Adding b-sides to an already perfect album is risky business, but is always great for the fans. The seven added tracks found on this re-issue are great, and add the the whole feel of the album. "Video Killed The Radio Star", originally written and performed by '80's band The Buggles, is a great cover by Ben Folds Five. "For All The Pretty People" is a great song, featuring a hilarious conversation between the band.
"She Don't Use Jelly" is another cover, originally performed and written by the Flaming Lips. The lyrics were changed and rearranged from the original song. Great cover. "Theme From 'Dr. Pyser'" is a great, catchy instrumental.
All in all, this is a fantastic album from Ben Folds Five. Highly recommend it.
