Gnarls Barkley: St. Elsewhere
Buy! - (Downtown)
Former Goodie Mob rapper Cee-lo Green and hip hop producer Danger Mouse hooked up for this startlingly original set of what they call “psychedelic hip hop,” adventurously blending hip hop with soul, rock, electronic, gospel and lots more. Cee-lo sings far more than he raps here, and his creamy, Al Green-influenced vocal style brings some reassuring warmth to Gnarls Barkley’s unsettling world, where madness reigns (most of the songs touch upon mental illness of one form or another). Danger Mouse provides a wide range of distinctive beats and eclectic soundscapes on what’s easily one of the most imaginative hip hop albums in a long time. 5/12/2006 - Don Yates
