I immediately went online and found out what I could about this song and the CD. Amazingly, I loved it. I say amazing because I do not like pop music; as a matter of fact, I don't like most current music.
This CD has a few songs that are a bit too much for me, but over all I love the CD.
Here is how I would break down the album.
Fantastic Songs; those which make the album great - Crazy, St. Elsewhere, Smiley Faces, Just A Thought, Who Cares?
Good Songs; those which fill out the album without destroying it - Go-Go Gadget Gospel, Gone Daddy Gone (a remake of a Violent Femmes song which I didn't care for, but this version is OK), Feng Shui, Transformer, Necromancing, Storm Coming, The Last Time
OK Songs; the 2 that I don't care for - The Boogie Monster, On-line
All-in-all, this is a great CD in a sea of releases by clones and copycats who are unimaginative and/or untalented. Most music today sounds like every other song from it's genre. Music has not felt inspired in a long time but this CD has broken the mold for me, an old-school music lover. The music, even sampled which I usually hate, takes on a life of it's own. Listen to the lyrics too because they are pretty deep. These guys have proven that music can still be original, lyrics can be something other than contrived and ambiguous.
My wife says I am closed-minded when it comes to music. She is right. With very few exceptions, I only like music from before 1980; classic rock, mo-town, jazz, blues, swing, classical; to me, everything else seems like regurgitated, processed crap.Read more ›
First some back story....Brian Burton was born in New York & lived in Georgia for a long time where his electronica work under the name Pelican City was released. He re-mixed work by local artists. From 1998 to 2003 Burton also created a series of remix CDs under the stagename D.J.Danger Mouse (inspired by the British cartoon series Dangermouse, see my review) including the album Ghetto Pop Life (`03), he created The Grey Album, mixing an a cappella version of Jay Z's The Black Album over beats crafted from samples of The Beatles' White Album. The remix album, originally created just for his friends, spread over the internet and Entertainment Weekly ranking it the best record of the year, also earning him a Grammy nom. (best producer). Danger Mouse was also named among the Men of the Year by GQ mag in 2004 and won the 2005 "WIRED Rave Award." Damon Albarn, who tracked him down to produce the Gorillaz' "DEMON DAYS". Followed by "The Mouse and the Mask" and "MF DOOM" for Cartoon Network's ADULT SWIM.
Now here Danger Mouse releases ST. ELSEWHERE, another TV reference and collaboration with CEE-LO as GNARLS BARKLEY, the debut album of Gnarls Barkley, released on April 24, 2006 in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number one on the ALBUM CHART and is set to be released on May 9 in the States, although it can be purchased this week as a digital download in the U.S. iTunes music store.Read more ›

Very gifted, reminds me of Lou Bega in the wide range of tunes. No two sound the same. Bought it for "Crazy" and appreciate the whole thing.Published 8 months ago by My Mother Was An Astrologer

open your ears! this draws more of a parallel to Tricky and Portishead with hints of Outkast and Al Green than Mos Def. In fact, i will say that "Go Go Gadget Gospel" reminds me of the urgency "Bombs Over Baghdad" had when i first heard it. I don't even see the... Read More
