How do you feel about The Bens?

If you don't know, Ben Folds, Ben Kweller and Ben Lee have joined forces, starting a band called The Bens.

So far, they only have a 4 song EP.

I just listened to one of the songs, "Just Pretend" and I'm very impressed. Some really nice harmonies.

Any opinions?

I haven't heard any songs, but I read a blurb in Entertainment Weekly that when they tour they will come on stage to "It's All About the Benjamins." I thought that was funny.

Haven't heard any of their stuff, but I'd like to. I really like Ben Folds, Ben Kweller's got some good songs. To be honest though, I'd forgotten about Ben Lee...haven't heard anything from him in years...

They asked me but I was busy with other commitments.

I saw Ben Folds & Ben Lee perform a cover of "I Touch Myself". Very entertaining. I'd be more than willing to give them a shot based on that performance alone.
