Warning: This album will make you want to boogie

I realize I am behind. So that means TWO albums this week instead of one, you lucky readers! That post will be later this afternoon, and I’m already chuckling at the pair I’ve picked.

Before I get to that, let’s talk about Cee-Lo Green, and how much I loved Lady Killer.

The only song I had heard originally was Fuck You (I already gave you the Tipper Gore warning and my blog is not regulated by the FCC, so there will be no censorship here) which is incredibly catchy. Must be, since the censored version was on an episode of Glee:

I suppose this album had a bit of an unfair advantage because I like soul and I like anything mo-town-esque, which is exactly what this album is. The who album is loosely centered around the less-than-original theme of exploits-with-ladies, but I think it makes sense given the music has a bit of a timeless sound. Also – NO AUTO TUNE! I can appreciate auto-tune every now and again, but for the most part I think it’s overused, overdone and frequently, just plain sucks.

Love Gun was probably my favorite track and sounds like something out of an old school, black and white detective movie. I was surprised to read that No One’s Gonna Love You is a Band of Horses cover (one I much prefer, after listening to the original). I also really, really like Cee-Lo’s voice, which makes or breaks most music for me.

Basically, this was a winner. I think I might even do something crazy like buy the album.

New music coming up soon! In the meantime, watch the video for Fuck You. It makes me smile. And want to dance a little in my chair at work.
