Gnarls Barkley: amoral gospel music

I am not cool enough to recommend this album, but if you like funkadelic hip-hop, check out Gnarls Barkley's debut, "St. Elsewhere." It's a collaboration between Danger Mouse (producer of Gorillaz albums and DangerDoom, and the legend behind the Grey Album) and Cee-Lo. But it's quite different from anything you've ever heard. And very good. Asks Sam Chennault, "Is it amoral gospel music, cinematic soul steeped in idiosyncratic underground hip-hop or left-field indie rock with a drum machine and a basketball fixation?"
