I wasn't quite sure what I thought about Ben Folds doing an album with the writer Nick Hornby when I first heard about it several months ago. This was mainly due to the fact that Hornby sounded like a douche and wrote about sports a lot. But I've been listening to the tracks on this album and I've got to say they're really good. The music part of this collaboration is particularly strong which is surprising to me since Ben Folds used a lot more electronic parts for his songs than he is used to.
Stand Out Tracks:
A Working Day
Levi Johnston's Blues
Lonely Avenue is an extremely solid album with great lyrics and even better music. I would definitely recommend Lonely Avenue to anyone who is a fan of Ben Folds or Ben Folds Five.
