    Second half a disappointment!? That's my favorite half! The whole damn thing is classic, though, of course.

    They definitely grew as song writers. This album is my favorite of there's....doesn't make me feel as happy as the others, but SO MANY amazing moments. If only they could have stayed together.

    Not only is this Ben Folds Five's best album, but it's one of my favorite albums of all time. Messner and Rocking The Suburbs were the peak of Ben Folds' incredible song-writing if you ask me.

    this is my absolute favorite album out of all of bff + ben's solo work. It's really quite a journey from 'narcolepsy' to 'lullabye'. 'Jane' is perhaps my favorite. such an awesome album.

    When is Front to Back going to be released on DVD? I watched it 4 times in 2 days, but on my computer. I really want to hook it up to a TV with a good sound system... such an amazing performance!

    I love how many plays messner's getting as a whole on cause of the reunion (i think). lots of activity over here in TUBORM world.

    sheer genius. this album is incredibly conceptually realized. definitely Ben's best work, with or without the Five.
