Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere


First there were Outkast and their revolution turned into music that was "Speakerboxx/The Love Below". Then came the morning after with Plantlife and their unfairly-ignored "The Return Of Jack Splash". Now there is another band breaking into pieces the whole history of funk and soul music only to reconstruct it all over again but in a completely new form. Gnarls Barkley are the result of a collaboration between Cee-Lo (Goodie Mob) and super producer Danger Mouse (Gorillaz, Dangerdoom) and are already making history: their first single, the super-catchy-ode-to-madness-best-song-in-ages "Crazy", was the first to top the english charts with no physical release, just out of downloads. Over-hyped? Not at all, when there's an album of upbeat music consisting of 14 future classics. Maybe just a small sign that the future is here and this time justice is being done.
