Jesusland METRO Review
« on: October 03, 2005, 01:22:24 AM »
I opened my Metro newspaper this morning and hot diggity there is Mr. Ben Folds staring back at me.  There is a little single review of Jesusland and the clever people at Metro gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
This is the short review in full:

Ben Folds: Jesusland (Epic)
Bouncing paino pop about walking through a city, noting the disparity between the rich and poor and the the Christians in 'beautiful McMansions' who have lost touch with the meaning of their religion.  A timely dissection of American culture from Mr Folds. 4/5 Stars.

I like it when people like Ben.
...and that's all he wrote...

Everyone mentions the McMansions...! I heard it in Topshop today. Cool :)
So much time, so little to say...
