    Conceived during a dinner conversation between longtime friends Ben Folds and English novelist Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About a Boy), Lonely Avenue is a true collaboration. Recorded old-school to 2" tape and marketed heavily to the vinyl crowd, the album features the music of Folds, the words of Hornby, and the string arrangements of Paul Buckmaster.

  • Critic Reviews
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Intelligent, funny, heartbreaking alt-rock, Hornby lyrics, music and vocals by Folds....An album of 11 tiny novels that play themselves."
    Clash (magazine) - "Sublime strings from legendary Bowie arranger Paul Buckmaster provide a charming gloss, while 'Your Dogs' is an alarmingly accurate rendering of early Elvis Costello."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.81) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Hornby spins loose vignettes into rich narratives....The majority of the album compares favourably with Folds' best work and represents a compelling return to form..."
