Fear of Pop: “In Love” (1998)

Although the artist is identified as Fear of Pop, this album–a collection of instrumental and spoken word music–is essentially a Ben Folds project. “In Love”, wherein guest William Shatner muses with grim humor on the end of a less-than-mutually-satisfying relationship, is its unquestionable highlight.

Shat doesn’t get his due as a comedic figure. Perhaps it’s because so many people take him more seriously than he takes himself.
