from Danger Mouse, that dude.

The Daily Beast: CeeLo, what’s going on with the new Gnarls Barkley album?

CeeLo: I’ve got three Gnarls Barkley songs already done! Danger Mouse has been working with U2 for the past few years, so I don’t know how it’s going to sound. He did Broken Bells, Norah Jones, Black Keys, all these different projects. But the Gnarls Barkley I know, and the Gnarls Barkley people know and love, is all about the texture, samples, and headspace he was in. I’ve been trying to get him to divide his attention a little bit more!

Cee Lo promoting the upcoming Goodie Mob record on The Daily Beast today (Aug 13).
guessing the U2 record will be impacted by this headspace as well... loving the mystery of DM

Why is that funny? I dislike his voice. His range is part of his voice. I also dislike The Smiths because of Morrissey's voice.

It happens.

Seems pretty logical.

So, you listen to records even though you don't like the singers voice?

It's funny how offended you guys get that someone doesn't agree with your opinions.

Hell yeah I love The Darkness. They're better than The National in every way.

I'll gladly wait for your freak out at that opinion.

It's hard for a baritone to sing soprano.

You didn't say you didn't like his voice, you just said you didn't think he had range. That was what I thought was funny. I mean, it's not funny now, I just disagree because The National is awesome.

More fish for Kunta.

Nope. No extra effort has been involved in my not liking them. Heard the records, didn't dig. Simply expressing that opinion.

You should get on subnet. He doesn't even think the dude is a good baritone. The nerve.

Perhaps The National should replace their poor singer and make the lyrics enjoyable to hear.

lol @ The National being better than The Darkness. There's this thing call sound waves.

Got great lyric and can't sing? Write a book of poetry.

The flaw in this post comes in the first line: he's not a poor singer.

You're literally the only person in this thread/board who thinks that he is. Like, this isn't even a Bob Dylan/Neil Young type scenario where about half of his fans think he can't sing but it's OK.

The lyrics sound heavenly

Well, that's not true.

And going a step further, who cares about popular consensus?

Like what you like.

At the very least, Matt's voice fits his lyrics and the band's music quite well. At their best, the band can (in my opinion) create a sublime emotional atmosphere that I've never quite heard before, and Matt is integral to that in lyrics and vocals.
