    I agree on CH’s album art. I have always wanted a Changing Horses 2 with red album art and a similar motif. Ben’s voice sounds so good over country tunes...although it sounds good over all kinds of tunes.

    @jfra good observation about the drum sound on Ben Kweller. there are a few reasons... #1 reason: Sha Sha and On My Way were both recorded on 2" analog tape. Ben Kweller was the first album i made with Pro Tools. the digital realm is by nature more punchier. BUT, the micing techniques were different on all 3 albums. Sha Sha had sort-of a 90's micing style, On My Way had a 60's micing style - which is very distant sounding... and Ben Kweller was a more "modern" micing style, fo lack of a better word. and yes, while the drums from Ben Kweller may sound the best... i do agree that my playing could never come close to John David Kent or Fred Eltringham. xoBK

    While I'll never forget hearing Sundress for the first time on myspace and becoming an instant fan, I can't help but say Changing Horses is my favorite. That record blew my mind. It was the country/folk BK album I never knew I needed. It also probably has my favorite album art of all the records (Go Fly A Kite's diorama is a close second).

    I'm going to take this seriously and listen to all of the albums again before I just go with my first instinct. I'm almost halfway through Ben Kweller, and it struck me that the drums sound better produced than on the first two albums. It's not the playing, of course (JDK is one of my favorite drummers of all-time), but the drums on the first two sound more distant. On self-titled, they're more thumpy and present, which I like better myself. Any insight, BK? I also realized in my research that I don't own a physical copy of Ben Kweller. WTF?!
