what is your biggest fear for this upcoming album
mine is that it won't have a cool picture on the cover. i mean it'll be hard to top the crowd flipping him off.
Little Farley, think about it!

My biggest fear is that it will never, ever be released.  Ok, not that.... just that it will be about 10 months from now.

My biggest fear thankfully wont come true, I'm sure. I have this fear that he'll go way jazzy and totally get rid of beautiful melodies. I won't jazzy but I love Ben for tunes!

I don't think Ben could do an album without gorgeous tunes if he tried. Think about Girl - The guy just can't do bad!

I agree with you Anna, that is impossible.   ;D

Have you heard the live clips of what Ben has been working on?  I don't think you'll be disappointed.  They are untitled 1, 2, and 3 of the WPI show at www.benfoldsweb.net.  The direct link is: http://benfoldswebcom.readyhosting.com/wpi.htm

I have 2 worst fears for this album.

1. That he will loose his cool receeding hairline, I think the music will loose its magic the second he looses that hairline. It makes me feel better about my inevitable hair-loss.

2. It would totally suck if he started writing lyrics for parts of the songs, strange as it may sound, I really enjoy the bits of the song where he just goes "Baa baa baa" or "Shalalala." I think it really suits his music.

My best dream for this album would be if it had some songs featuring Robert Sledge and Darren Jesse   :)
Then they went on tour together  ;D

And then I woke up.

my biggest worry is that Rockin' the Suburbs turns out to be the zenith of his songwriting, and that none of the eight studio albums he releases over the next 23 years of his career has more than four really good songs on it.

that's my biggest worry (but it's not that big)

my fear is that it will have only ten songs, and not like 13, or at least 12.
Little Farley, think about it!

I think we all have irrational fears.

Thank God Ben.

Hahah I remember picking up a t.a.t.U album out of interest, and seeing that they only have 8 songs on their album. 8! Truely shocking, not to mention the fact that one of those 8 short songs was a remix of another one.

Lets hope Ben doesn't become lesbian to sell records as well.  :-/

Haha I dunno, thats a sort of grey area in Ben's life I feel. But if he IS a lesbian, I won't hold it against him and I wish him all the best in his strange male lesbian life.

PS - I am aware he is married, but when did that stop any of us.

The Ben/Lesbian angle of this thread reminds me of something I once heard on the radio or maybe it was one of the daytime talkers.

A guy had a sex change operation so that he could become a lesbian.  I ain't making it up.
