Ben Folds Five — The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner

The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner

Year: 1999
Label: 550 Music
Length: 40:20

My favorite Ben Folds Five album.

I was on a school trip in Toronto when I bought this. Ben Folds Five had been riding high on the hits from Whatever and Ever Amen. Classmates of mine had that album, but ignored Fear of Pop and The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner.

This holds my favorite BFF songs. I’ve always thought this was the darkest BFF album, and I don’t mean that just because of the album cover.
