All right, The Odd Couple by Gnarls Barkley is officially my favorite music discovery of the year now. I know it came out in 2008, and everyone else went nuts over "Crazy" way back in 2006, but whatever, I'm slow, and you guys don't recommend stuff to me, and my radio stations spend all their time playing emo crap by skinny white boys in corduroy pants.

Thank god for Amazon's DRM-free instant gratification.

This is a rare album where there isn't a single song I disliked. Obviously, I liked some more than others, but yeah. I'll jus

I'm kind of amused by how Cee-Lo looks like Cobra Bubbles on the cover there.

Anyway, if there's someone more behind, I would say you should check them out if you like, uh ... Gorillaz and Duffy and the Eels and Moby and British-Invasion-era pop. Which I do.

Now I'm going to go listen to "Surprise" about six more times, but there's no good version on Youtube, so you get no link.

Talk about same wave-length...I do like all the gruops you mentioned! Thank goodness for my local station - 89.3 The Current. Otherwise I wouldn't hear any "cool" music.

I like most of those artists but not enough to buy a whole album. But I may need to get this one after listening to all the track previews.

I loved Crazy but they had another radio single out last summer that I didn't care for so I dismissed them into "one hit wonder" land.

The Odd Couple doesn't sound anything like "Crazy," yeah--YMMV! "Surprise" is my favorite from the album, as you may have guessed...
