Either you've never heard of Gnarls Barkley, or that's all of you've heard about lately. If you're on the former side, you're more than likely not hip to new tunes. There's also a fair chance you don't think any of today's R&B music is worth a damn. Maybe you're right in general, but you're wrong about Gnarls Barkley. If you're gonna take a chance on a record, take a chance on this one. It'll be worth it for track two alone – "Crazy."

St. Elsewhere is a complex record, to be sure. It employs the full spectra of pop music and human emotion. The warm, breezy single "Crazy" and the spry finger-snapping "Smiley Faces" recall "Songs in the Key of Life" and "Good Vibrations" in equal measure. Often dark and unpredictable, St. Elsewhere nevertheless retains its sense of joy throughout. This music bears Marvin Gaye's depth of feeling, Jeff Buckley's emotive theatrics and wild courage not seen since Prince's prime. Behold the most exciting debut of 2006. A psychedelic soul masterpiece.

Lousy quality control at Atlantic

Reviewer: Eric J
Good album sprinkled with a few amazing tunes, including the song of the decade according to Rolling Stone magazine. Beyond "Crazy" I find that "Smiley Faces" is just as catchy and danceable.

However, the quality control with Atlantic is sub par. The spindle hole at the center of the record was too small for me to place on my turntable. I foolishly forced it down thinking it just needed a little stretch, but it was nearly impossible to pull off my turntable. Thank god I didn't damage my player.
