Album of the Day
The Odd Couple
Atlanta hip-hopper CeeLo Green and producer Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse, crossed paths shortly after the turn of the millennium and joined forces as Gnarls Barkley. Two years after their debut catapulted them to stardom, the duo returned with THE ODD COUPLE, a strong follow-up that remains their last collaboration to date. The highly anticipated Atlantic collection - which was rush released after Internet leaks - is touched with both beauty and melancholy and includes such standout tracks as “Run (I'm a Natural Disaster),” “Going On" and “Who's Gonna Save My Soul.” Danger Mouse's sonic settings (which include samples from such unusual suspects as Françoise Hardy and Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs) provide the ideal frame for CeeLo's exhilarating vocal work, making THE ODD COUPLE a perfect match.
