While many record companies and musicians ran cowering into their closet when faced with the digital music revolution, a few astute ones like Ben Folds quickly moved to embrace it, and the new opportunities it afforded to break away from the suddenly restrictive-feeling full album format. In Folds' case this took the shape of three five-song EPs also made available through mail order via his own Attacked by Plastic imprint (and, later, partly compiled into the Supersunnyspeedgraphic, The LP CD), of which 2004's Super D was the final and arguably least fulfilling entry. After opening with a spirited, grin-inducing cover of the Darkness' "Get Your Hands off My Woman," Folds manages only mildly interesting music and confusingly vague lyrics for "Kalamazoo" before launching into the bouncy "Adelaide," pushing up both the comedy and sonic complexity on the rhythmically busy, electronically-spiced "Rent a Cop," and finally closing with a live cover of Ray Charles' "Them That Got." Flawed or not, the EP was still readily embraced by Folds' rabid supporters.
