  1. 8.0 |   All Music

    So There is both ambitious and down-to-earth, impeccably constructed, and utterly accessible
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    This album has its dancing shoes straddling very different musical camps and somehow manages to bind them together with skill and personality
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   Gig Soup

    This is another brilliant Ben Folds album in which he does what he does best
    Read Review

  5. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    No matter how far Folds strays from his roots, he’ll never be able to shake his core love of music that challenges as well as entertains
    Read Review

  6. 7.0 |   Uncut

    An LP of instant standards. Print edition only

  7. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    The heightened focus on orchestral accompaniment, both grandiose and restrained, helps So There stand out from its predecessors
    Read Review

  8. 6.0 |   The Music

    Folds' goofball side occasionally diminishes his songs but when he marries the right melody with the right emotional pitch he delivers some cracking tunes and shows his formidable talent

  9. 6.0 |   Mojo

    By turns whimsical, self-deprecating and humorous, it epitomises the nerdy angst that has become his hallmark. Print edition only

  10. 6.0 |   Q

    Anti-rock songwriter goes classical. Print edition only

  11. 6.0 |   State

    Whereas Folds’ previous albums, (both solo and as part of the Ben Folds Five) were bursting with wit and personality, his latest offering is a decidedly more downbeat, even nonchalant affair
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Exclaim

    Folds shifts from love song to jerky criticism and back again in a way that's humorously human
    Read Review

  13. 5.8 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Folds’ gifts for narrative and composing are clear, but fusing the two more fluidly could be something magical
