Darren Jesse was always Ben Folds Five’s secret weapon, a versatile drummer who could pound out the band’s version of “punk for sissies,” provide subtle accents for ballads like “Brick,” or even lay down a Buddy Rich beat for a big band feel, all while providing his part of a luxurious three-part harmony. But it…
It would be unfair to label Ben Folds’ last album, Songs for Silverman, as a “serious” album — Folds never leaves his sense of humor very far behind. But it was a weightier mix of songs for him, a healthy lean toward his more introspective side. On Way to Normal, Folds has shifted the other…

808s and Heartbreak, Kanye West’s fourth album, is certainly groundbreaking. It might just be the first-ever black emo record. 808s shows Mr. West at his most vulnerable. A year removed from being harder, better, faster, stronger and nearly invincible, he tries–sometimes in vain–to prove that he is human; that he hurts like the rest of…
