Product Description

Product Description

CD WARNER, 32672, 14 Track

Amazon.co.uk

In 2006, Danger Mouse is King Midas of the music world. He has an uncanny knack for creating jagged, dense, frenzied beats and odd, eerie, vivid soundscapes that never compromise the music's natural flow. Meanwhile, rapper and singer Cee-Lo, a veteran of Atlanta's Dirty South scene, has never been one to be constrained by hip-hop conventions, and is a willing partner in adventure. The result is an intrepid psychedelic blend of pop, hip-hop, soul, and rock that consistently challenges and delights. It's no wonder that "Crazy," with its modest riff, irresistible hook, and disarming opening line ("I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind") became a worldwide Internet sensation a full six months before the official release of St. Elsewhere. But that relatively simple soul-pop gem is the tamest track on this wide-ranging, often dark and introspective collaboration. (In fact, the duo considers Gnarls Barkley to be a wholly new creation, as opposed to a collaboration of existing artists.) "Everybody is somebody, but nobody wants to be themselves," Cee-Lo croons on "Who Cares?" He and Danger Mouse try very hard not to be their old selves as they creatively and confidently break down boundaries, but the brilliant cores of their musical personae--Cee-Lo's eccentric spiritual soul man and Danger's bold sonic explorer--remain. --Marc Greilsamer

Owing to mixed reviews of St Elsewhere, I borrowed a friend's copy and at the end of my first listen I thought what a weird mix of styles and songs. But I played it again and by the third play I was hooked. This is a real mix of soul, funk and hip hop and it shouldn't really work but it does, mainly because of Cee-Lo's smooth vocals! At only 35 minutes it's quite a short album, but the most interesting thing will be the next release from this duo to see if they can sustain their new found fame.

Much of the reviews for St Elsewhere evaulate all the tracks in relation to its mindblowing single 'Crazy'. While it is probably pertinent to mention that there are no other tracks that reach the sublime level of that song, it may also pertinent to say that Crazy is one of the best songs of the last five years and would dwarf most tracks on most albums by most artists. Putting Crazy aside, there is much to enjoy here, from Dangermouse's dynamic, shapeshifting - but not fussy - production, to Cee-Lo's powerful singing, nursery-rhyme raps, clever word-play and general explosive charisma. Fans of Gorillaz should love this for its humour, its sonic invention and its unique hybridity (soul, gospel, hip hop and electronica - amongst other things). There are some throwaway moments - mostly cartoonish sketches expanded out unsuccessfully to song length, but I will set those aside to focus on the highlights...

The title track brilliantly marries suurealist hip hop in the mold of CLOUDDEAD with bursts of Curtis Mayfield soul to devestating effect. Like Quannum stalwart Lyrics Born, Cee-lo cqn shift vocal ranges dramatically at the drop of a hat, constantly stimulating and surprising. Smiley Faces is the closest the album has to repeating Crazy's winning pop formula, all surf-guitar and gospel and great hooks. 'Just A Thought' continues Crazy's theme of mental illness to a darker, more uncomprimising extreme over thunderous, DJ Shadow-patented beats: "When I was lost I even found myself looking in the gun's direction / Well i've tried, everything but suicide / But yes it's crossed my mind". Necromancer is creepy but cartoonish hip hop about defiling dead bodies, while Storm Coming apes Latyrx's similar Storm Warning but they will be forgiven because it is so good.

For the first time in ages I have been assualted and challenged by an album....Gnarls Berkley manages to pull in the past, twist it, reinvent it, and come up with a new mix, a new challenge to our ears. This is a real achievement in the age of crank-the-handle-spit-it-out-for-the-proles age.

We are at a time when everything seems to have been done, dusted, and T-shirted. Gnarls makes a wonderfully brave attempt to re-mix and re-discover it all. Some of the songs are instant masterpieces, others are an adventure, some an experiment. Finally, real artists having a go....

We can only stand aside and applaud, every song is engaging and, a new thing for these days, both entertaning and challenging.

I think this is a wonderful laboratory, and can't wait for the next three albums...it can only get better....something new for once!

P.S. great musicianship, lead singer excellent, backing superlative, and if nothing else, it is ALIVE!!!!

Buy, feel, discover what energy is again, listen to the lyrics and agree.....gagging for more! (4 stars as I know more is to come......)

In conjunction with the Gorillaz producer Danger Mouse, Cee-Lo has hit upon a proper soul masterpiece. 'Crazy' looks set to be the single of the year and with good reason. The combination of soul, R&B and a little funk is brilliant and fresh.

Danger Mouse assembles a wide range of settings for Cee-Lo's engaging vocals, with the cautionary 'Smiley Faces' offering an updated take on Motown's swingy charm, 'Go-Go Gadget Gospel' harnessing a sped-up horn riff to a garage beat, and 'Gone Daddy Gone' building a powerful techno-rock groove on a descending synth-line. Subjects covered on the album span from feng shui to transformers, but perhaps the best surprise on the album is 'Boogie Monster' - cleverly described by some as a new genre 'horror-soul' (listen out for the twist at the very end!).

Not for the faint heartet is the great track, 'Necromancing' ("It's very naughty, necrophilia/ Without a care, I'm compassionate about killing her/ I have my way with what's left of the will in her").

All in all a great album which actually hangs together (unlike some albums you buy when you like one of the singles). A great addition to any CD collection.

I am hugely impressed by this album. Cee-lo's voice is immense - it's worth buying the album just to enjoy it.

But this is just one aspect which makes the album great. Dangermouse's work is great too - great samples, music and production. The two artists combined have made a modern soul masterpiece...hats off to them both.

And the album also manages to be both musically and lyrically amusing! As other reviewers have written, try to keep still whilst listening to this album - it's impossible! In terms of the lyrics, there are well deserved swipes at those dreary sorts that embrace anything remotely foreign and mystical to enliven their own bland lives (Feng Shui) and the misery of real-life-substitute websites such as Myspace (On-line).

If you are a fan of artists such as NERD/Pharell Williams, Outkast, Curtis Mayfield or any kind of soul, hip-hop, funk etc...you will love this album. The standout tracks for me are St Elsewhere, Feng Shui, Just A Thought, Storm Coming and of course Crazy.

I am lucky enough to be going to the o2 wireless gig in Hyde Park on Friday and will see Gnarls live...can't wait!
