Product Description

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

4.0 out of 5 stars UNUSUAL BUT GOOD 18 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gnarly 9 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid album 31 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a good solid album. The now infamous Crazy is arguably the highlight but the other songs are more than just fillers. It is exceptionally upbeat and more than a little funky at times. The album has had some bad reviews, I think, because people were expecting 11 Crazy matching songs but that was not possible. It has much more variety than that and should apeal to people with a strange sense of humour. There is a little bit of rap and a lot of soul. Good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soul food for the starving 29 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
I disagree with these reviews.

Gnarls Barkley have delivered a fabulous soul funk dance album that mixes elements of old school jazz with crisp eerie beats, a soaring vocal and given it a modern spin.

The music scene has been crying out for good soul, gospel, jazz and dance for some time and I feel that Gnarls Barkley have more than delivered to fill these gaps.

They are a great outfit both live and on the record, we'd do well to broaden our minds and embrace them as they'll take you to another level.

Bring on the backlash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful experiment... 19 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
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......)

5.0 out of 5 stars Get obsessed with this! 5 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I can't remember the last time I liked a whole album this much. I've been playing it over and over since I bought it and it grows on me more and more. It's an interesting mix of humour, passion, melancholy, depression, sex, and insanity. The vocals are gorgeous (both lead and backing) and each song has something to offer the soul and/or mind and/or body. Some took time to grow on me, but grow on me they did. Favourites are: Go Go Gadget Gospel, Crazy (of course), Smiley Faces, Just a Thought, Storm Coming and the incredibly sexy Last Dance. And after seeing Gnarls Barkley in concert the other night, I love this even more. Think, Dance, Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality From Gnarls 11 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Not sure why this album has had such poor reviews from other Amazon buyers. I think this album is absolutely awesome. Some very punchy tunes with some interesting lyrics and very varied types. Perhaps people were expecting some middle of the range album. However, I really like the whole album and find that it flows really well. Some very funky tunes with a definite hint of hip-hop in there. If your wanting something that has some character and colour the this is deifinitely for you.
