Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple 

Atlantic

 

The weird pop/soul collaboration of Gnarls Barkley has released another strange brew of songs that span the gap between melodic depth and fun party music.

 

Cee-Lo Green's soaring falsetto croons through "Who's Gonna Save My Soul," one of the most musically interesting songs on the duo's second album, as is "Run (I'm a Natural Disaster)," the album's single, is paced and filled with electronic swooshes and dub-inspired effects and noises. The pair picks up the pace with "Going On," with organ groundwork and handclap accents throughout.

 

"Whatever" has a Sixties-sounding beat and melodic hook, but is otherwise pretty unremarkable, but most of the other tracks on "The Odd Couple" infuse the genre-bending style and lighthearted humor evident on 2006's "St. Elsewhere."

 

"The Odd Couple" isn't quite "Crazy," but it's quite good.
