BEN FOLDS FIVE Naked Baby Photos (Caroline) How could a band with just two albums and little commercial success possibly merit a rarities/outtakes album? It doesn't, so instead of unreleased gems we get underdeveloped early songs, inferior tracks (wisely) omitted from its first album, and misguided rap and heavy metal parodies that are more embarrassing than amusing. But the biggest mistake is the inclusion of live versions of several of its best songs, which, though mediocre, still make the rest of this trivia sound insignificant by comparison. C
