Creativity is the word that best describes this LP, it's a soul revolution, how all this different styles and influences could be encaged in just 14 tracks? It's surprising that this is a debut work, a very dared production that Gnarls Barkley started with. By shading Green's voice with original and changing tones, the couple gives us something fresh, hypnotizing and urban that breaks with all the parameters of the traditional soul's world.
But, is just that sometimes is too much of it.

A strong debut of variety and skill, even if its low points in creativity halts its progress here and there.

BEST TRACKS: St. Elsewhere, Who Cares, Just a Thought, The Last Time, Storm Coming, Smiley Faces

How to mess with tradition and remain traditionalist in your own terms!
Deep and soulful, fresh and daring: that's how we'll get to St. Elsewhere.

Crazy is awesome, everything else is fun but lacks structure.
