Gnarls Barkley

Now, it has almost been 1 year since I tried to hype them;

http://www.prince.org/msg/8/145218

Now the album will be released on 5/2 (US), 4/24 (UK) with the single Crazy going out on 4/10. Crazy has already garnered quite a bit of hype in England courtesy of Radio One.

Here is a link to their myspace page;

I have heard 8 demo tracks of the 14 from this album and it is going to be hot.

Gnarls update;

Crazy is No. 1 today at Apple's iTunes Music Store U.K., ahead of Orson's "No Tomorrow," which tops the official U.K. singles chart combining physical and download sales.

Wait until you guys hear *Smiley Faces*. Lo's deliver on that one is off the chain and after multiple spins, I find it even better than Crazy.

Crazy lyrics

Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that phase.
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space

And when you're out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy
Does that make me crazy
Does that make me crazy
Probably

And I hope that you are having the time of your life
But think twice, that's my only advice
Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control

Well, I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
Just like me

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them
Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy
Probably

After last week, "Crazy" actually became the first single to be number 1 on the UK charts based solely on download sales. Here's BBC news clip of it (http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=623206232&n=2)

Here is a link to the video for Crazy.

http://www.cdtimes.co.uk/...entid=2692


The ink-blot concept is just perfect.

This album is just wonderful and brilliant in its concept and delivery. Cee Lo delivers a vocal performance that I am not sure anyone else in the current industry could.

Much like Prince delivers only like Prince can.

Danger Mouse's arrangements are just unbelievable as well.

It is a slowed down version, but Lo delivers. Nice to see that there will be a live band.

It was supposed to be out if Feb, but I guess it got pushed back because of the Gnarls hype/success.

Lo is also working with Jack Splash of Plantlife to form another group called *Lovestink*. I have heard a single track called *Gangsta Boogie* which sounds extremely funky.

I have always thought Cee-Lo had an amazing voice but this definitely showcases that I was right all along and the people who questioned me that this guy was a real singer can sit the hell down smile

AMEN!

I feel your satisfaction! Haters can can get on board or STFU!

I am very proud of Cee-Lo for doing this type of project. There are more than a few songs on the album other than Crazy that do an even better job of showcasing his vocal skills.

Smiley Faces
The Last Time
On-Line

The album is instant vintage and a breath of fresh air for Hip Hop/Soul/R&B/Pop.

There isn't anything like that here in South Florida. Nothing but *Clear Channel* across the board, or so it seems.

I am shocked. This is the first number one single that I've liked in years. I can't get over hearing a real song with real musicality and soul actually doing well on the charts. Let's hope this is a sign of things to come.

Agreed 100%.

Though I am not sure that the US is ready for it. I am very pleased that the UK recognized a good song.

It is really a breath of fresh air.
