Dr Yang - what's the diagnosis?
« on: August 05, 2008, 09:36:12 AM »
Right from when I heard the leak I've had a firm belief it was fake, but that Hiroshima, Cologne and You Don't Know Me were genuine. If I had to pick one I was most unsure about it would Dr Yang. Initially I dismissed it as fake just looking at the title, but when the official Way To Normal tracklisting was revealed to include Dr Yang, and I read this in the press release 'the frenetically fuzzed-out "Dr. Yang"' I'm not sure. There is definately some fuzz in the leaked track. What do y'all reckon?

all of the one's that were leaked are fake besides cologne, hiro and u don't know me...


but yeah, dr. yang is the most "real" sounding...


you can tell by the sound quality that the "fake" one's are NOT legit due to not being mastered.

I think Dr. Yang is real, and it's wonderful.  Super happy suicide love song.

i wouldn't mind if this one was real, but i'd be pissed if the frown song was.  but this song is alot of fun and i'll definately be playing it real or not.

I almost gave in to positive thinking, but sarcasm came to the rescue

I like The Frown (Song). Some of the lyrics "Before it's too late y'all", etc. kinda make me want to grit my teeth at times when I listen, but otherwise I like it.

I gotta say The Frown Song has a special place in my heart. I do very much enjoy the juxtaposition of both the word 'f*cking' and 'amen' in the same song. it makes me laugh.

i don't know about you guys, but i've never thought any ben folds stuff was the type of music i'd dance to.  and i feel like dancing to it's weird.

To me Dr. Yang just sounds like something dashed off for a soundtrack.

I don't know, I think it's pretty genuine.  It's terrifyingly bipolar which is part of the reason I dig it.    At any rate, it's the one that gets stuck in my head, mostly without my consent.

I do enjoy how effortlessly he finds two rhymes for '-osis'. I mean, there are lots of words, but the ones used aren't forced.
