As you may or may have not known, a new Gnarls Barkley CD came out last week. We really weren't intending to buy it and the only thing we really knew about them was that we liked the song "Crazy" that was popular awhile back. However, one thing led to another (as tends to happen on iTunes), and we started listening to the samples of songs. We liked the first song we selected, we liked the next, and the next, and by that point, it was more financially savvy to buy the whole darn thing. This is good stuff. We'll take artists any day who take chances to be original. While they seem to have both feet firmly planted in the present, there is a nod to the past and its funk/soul predecessors. The first several songs are really catchy so, if you are trying to get motivated to get back into the cardio swing of things with the arrival of spring, you'd be wise to download some or all of these into your iPod. Our only complaint is that it is too short, coming in at around 40 minutes.
