This review is from: The Lady Killer (Audio CD)
Was really indecisive before I bought this release from Cee Lo Green. I liked his work with Gnarls Barkley and I liked 'Forget You' but wasn't completely crazy about it. Was recommended this by a friend and it was during amazon's buy one get one free offer so I got it and I have never looked back!

I don't remember the last time I found an album where I wasn't inclined to skip through the tracks. There is so little filler here... just track after track of funky and infectious R&B/Neo-Soul with plenty of old school thrown in. I think what I like the most is, you're listening to the tracks and before you know it Green has you smiling over some pretty grim lyrical content. If the lead single 'Forget You' isn't a great a example to go by, 'Cry Baby' is just spot on... funky trumpets/saxophone and almost addictive retro vocal harmonies.

I wouldn't really like to liken Green to anyone but this album wouldn't look out of place next to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Anthony Hamilton, Lauryn Hill or even oldies like Al Green and Donny Hathaway. A perfect mix of all of them.

Not quite sure why his cover of 'No One's Gonna Love You' (by Band of Horses) is not included on the European addition but small qualm!

Now one of my favorite albums of 2010!
