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.

There is a very spirited debate going on about the recent regional level of the National Harmony Sweepstakes in Los Angeles. First it was about how poor the sound was for all of the groups. Then it turned into a discussion about whether it was against the rules for the members of King4 to compete a second time that night by adding one person and going under a different name (Throat). It’s a very interesting discussion that is worth a look while you are exploring this site.
