Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere

Let me start off this review by stating 2 things: 1. I am a huge Cee-lo fan and 2. I haven't fully been able to listen to this album as much as I like to.

"Gnarley Barkley" as referred to by the Howard Stern Show is a compilation between Danger Mouse and Cee-lo. It's got a hip-hop funkadellic sound to it that is unmistakable to any Cee-lo fan out there. You probably heard their single "Crazy" on the radio (or on Stretch's phone) about a million times and are sick of it to death. It probably is even stuck in your head right now just because I mentioned it and that makes you crrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzy!

The Ups: C'mon man, it's Cee-lo. Cee-lo! If George Clinton died and was reincarnated he would be Cee-lo. Does this look like a picture of a man that can do no wrong?

Of course it is. Oh and by the way there is a great cover of the Violent Femmes song "Gone, Daddy, Gone" on there as well.

The Downs: Well they do play the one song a lot and I mean a lot.

Overall: It's the summer and every summer needs one of those songs. This is that one for 2006.

Verdict: 4 Guinesses and a Smithwicks (not pronounced SMITH-wicks) out of 5.
