Not The Same

I've been chomping at the bit to hear the Ben Folds album ever since I got a call from his management floating the idea.Holy &#*#@!!! This is perhaps the biggest thing to happen to a cappella since the Do It A Cappella special back in 1991! The potential audience, the potential snowball effect, the immediate cachet within and without the collegiate world... amazing.However, I'm hugely conflicted in how I should listen to this disc, as I wear a variety of hats in the a cappella community. From which perspective should I review the album?How about all?
