Wasted & Ready

By Ben Kweller

The debut album's best song, padded out with two lightweight but charming and very smart "other" pieces. Wasted & Ready is the one with the French Horn (amusing name, great sound). Problems is a jokey little treasure, leading in with a full set of Twist and Shout chords on acoustic guitar and Dylan Frame harmonica. I Don't Know Why is a Lou Reed tribute done in the style of Fountains of Wayne on wacky baccy. This guy is a talent, no mistake. He absorbs, chuckles and spews it all back out in gleeful nerdy perfection. Sex reminds her of eating spaghetti, indeed. Silly boy. If singles were worth buying this would be the one. Songwriters listen and learn.
