I’m not going to lie. I have to take Cee-Lo’s voice in small doses. But, when I’m in the right mood, I can really get into Gnarls Barkley. As ambivalent as I am about Cee-Lo, I’m a huge fan of Gnarls Barkley‘s other half, Danger Mouse. It isn’t just because he is from New York, either. His work, both inside and out of Gnarls Barkley tends to be extremely hot. You may recall the 900,000 remixes of the Jay-Z’s “Black Album” that came out after Jay-Z released the acapella version. Well, there were only a handful that really stood out. The “Grey Album” was one of them. It was a mash-up of the Beatles’ “White Album” with Jay-Z’s vocals. The architect behind that gem, was Danger Mouse.
Sorry for the digression. The track that I’m sharing is from the album entitled “St. Elsewhere.” It’s called “The Last Time.” Follow this link to hear the track.
