Ultimately a 2000s classic
One of, if not my absolute favorite albums of all time. Danger Mouse is hands down one of the greatest producers to ever walk the earth and Cee Lo is a modern king of soul, the only issue I have with this and the Odd Couple are that they’re the only full albums in the Gnarls Barkley discography, I so hope we get another album, especially with how this year has been
Crazy is actually a somewhat decent 3 star song, but the rest is as annoying, grating and unfortunate as Cee-Lo himself is. While reviewing this, i could only think: "They're famous for this? Really?" Talk about vastly, dramatically overblown and overrated. I'm still wiping the blood from my ears. Nearly every time Cee-Lo opens his mouth with those scary shark-like teeth I'm treated to the sound of a cat undergoing surgery sans anesthetic.
Aside from Crazy, there's really only two positives about this album. First, nearly all of the songs are short. Though dropping lots of short songs is generally a sign of a lack of actual talent, I see the brevity of the tracks a blessing. Less pain to sit through when revewing a garbage album. The second positive is all the room reviewing this album made on my IPod. I was given this album a decade ago and only just now got around to reviewing it as i started running out of space. There's far too many good songs out there to keep this pretentious junk cluttering my IPod.
Except for Crazy, all of these songs were easy throwaway decisions. Crazy is a 3 star song and the rest are all throwaways. The overall album rating would be 1 star if not for Crazy.
Crazy... By far best song!

The album is good! Extremely experimental, like more than Gorillaz' self-titled review, but nonetheless it never lets down.
NOTE: Apple incorrectly lists The Grey Album, Danger Mouse's (who is 1/2 half of Gnarls Barkley) Jay-Z Beatles mixtape, as a Gorillaz album that DM produced, when instead, DM produced Gorillaz' phenomenal second album Demon Days, and The Grey Album is unassociated with Gorillaz.
Bringing back memories
I remember listening to this album with my dad everyday in the car whenever we went somewhere and then my parents got a divorce but I think listening to this album really helps me remember the times when life was easy. My favorite track has got to be Crazy
A Classic, No Question
There isn't 1 track I could even think of skipping on this album. The fact that this didn't get a Grammy is mind boggling to me. The production by Danger a Mouse is legendary. Each song is a new entity in of itself. Cee Lo KILLED this album, and in a good way. One of the greatest albums I've ever heard, period.
Gnarls Barkley has shown us all a new experimental side of hip-hop with St. Elsewhere. From Go-Go Gadget Gospel to Necromancer. Gnarls Barkley has struck gold!
