September 12 was an amazing day. It was Ben Fold’s 46th birthday but it was also the day the band released “The Sound of The Life of The Mind” was released to the people who pledged money. Over the past few months Ben Folds has released a few of the tracks. They started with the driving “Do It Anyway.” The rest of the album delivers just as many driving tunes, rich harmonies, and smart lyrics. Some of the songs remind me of Bruce Hornsby while others have a hint of the Beach Boy’s album Pet Sounds. If you are a Ben Folds Five fan you will love this new album. If you have yet to experience their sound beyond their hit song Brick, I highly recommend giving them a listen. The album will be out on September 18th on all your favorite multimedia retailers.
