14 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On his third solo release the multi-talented Cee Lo Green plays the persona of the “Lady Killer” to the hilt and comes up with a winning concept and a great batch of songs. Bookended by a couple of versions of the campy “Lady Killer Theme,” which sound like they were pulled from a spy movie spoof soundtrack, the album draws on classic soul and R&B for inspiration yet doesn’t come across as retro. There’s also hardly a trace of hip-hop, which is a change from most of his previous projects. He applies considerable wordplay and wit to hook-filled and irresistible songs that include hard funk (“Bright Lights Bigger City,” “Love Gun”), sultry soul (“Bodies,” “I Want You”) and contemporary R&B with classic horns (“Satisfied,” “Cry Baby,” “It’s OK,” and the insanely catchy kiss-off tune, “F**k You"). Green’s soulful and irrepressible voice is simply fantastic in this context. The Lady Killer is smooth, stylish, and a ton of fun.

I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!!!!

I first want to thank Cee-Lo for blessing the world with his gift! Music lovers were looking for something refreshing and we have it here! I thought StrayBullets was the top of the top, but I should have known that he was just preparing us for the REAL DEAL! Please buy this album, you will thoroughly enjoy :-)

#Voice Sounds Familiar

If Mcydees means Gnarls Barkley, than yes. That is because he is a member of Gnarls Barkley. Funky album!
