The Odd Couple: Gnarls Barkley

I think it's a classic, but a classic in more ways than one. "The Odd Couple" is classic because of all the hits it's crafted to produce, but also classic in how it borrows and re-imagines a previous era in pop music, this seems to be how we roll here at the beginning of the 21st Century.

    I think it's a classic, but a classic in more ways than one. "The Odd Couple" is classic because of all the hits it's crafted to produce, but also classic in how it borrows and re-imagines a previous era in pop music, this seems to be how we roll here at the beginning of the 21st Century. The 1970's is classic singer songwriter wet spot that Gnarls Barkley takes on. Soul, pop, ballad, experimental, concept, even the tittle of the album and cover are references well known pop icons of the 70's, but with a little shift in style which makes it all new. Maybe I've spent too many words getting to my point, which is, I really like the results, I imagine this album, like "Thriller" will be one of those few recording that is repackaged and re-imagined over and over and over again.

    There is no reason for you not to have this album. Amazon is selling the MP3 album for $5.00 which is so cheap it's insulting to Gnarls Barkley. I guess they're trying to get into the pockets of the philistines who want Danger Mouse and Cee-lo to reproduce "St. Elsewhere." I don't know how these people even enjoy music. Limited imagination and taste notwithstanding, this is a really good album. It lacks an utterly transcendent single like, "Crazy," but I have five songs on constant rotation which is about the same number I really liked from "St. Elsewhere." "The Odd Couple" definitely has a tighter sound and concept as a whole. The Sixties run rampant in its sound, but some people prefer that to eclecticism. Personally, I like a good hodge podge. Either way, I find Gnarls Barkley engaging.
