When you were young you were the king of carrot flowers...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, but I think this is my favorite album of all time. I bought this right around when it came out knowing nothing about the band really. I remember reading they were wierd, part of the elephant 6 collective, produced by the Apples In Stereo's Robert Schneider, and thinking the album cover was interesting. That was enough for me to pick it up and was blown away.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Baby 81

I know very little about this band, but "Still Suspicion Holds You Tight" is a good tune. Is that indicative of their sound?

Gnarls rules.

I've really been meaning to check out their record. I was just telling my wife that earlier today.

I'm watching TV now, but earlier I listened to a couple old Blonde Redhead records - they still rocked a few years later. That's always good.

Polyphonic%20Spree_The%20Beginning%20Stages%20of....jpg

Talk about your teenage symphonies to God. The Polyphonic Spree create the most euphoric, uplifting pop music imaginable. A self-described symphonic pop band crediting an astounding 29 members, their guilelessly spiritual lyrics and flowing white robes suggest they're a cult act in both the literal and figurative sense of the term, but the sheer joy of their music is undeniably persuasive, evoking the otherworldly brilliance of everything from Pet Sounds to The Soft Bulletin. Leader Tim DeLaughter, late of the oft-annoying Tripping Daisy, has harnessed something truly pure and enriching this time around -- imagine Up With People entering the studio with Dave Fridmann in the producer's chair, and you're getting close. This is life-affirming music of the highest caliber.

Terrific album. Going to see him with Ben Folds in June. Really looking forward to it.

Surprised me too. I heard the song Vultures played somewhere and it got me interested to hear the rest of the album. Other than "Waiting..." I'd had not heard any other tunes from it. It's not bad actually.

One of my favorite albums ever. Just a great album all around.

I know very little about this band, but "Still Suspicion Holds You Tight" is a good tune. Is that indicative of their sound?]

Man I just loaded all of their albums on my Ipod a few days ago. Its' funny because 4-5 years ago I was fixed on this band like no other. Loved the first 2 albums(still think the first is their best). Then I was a bit underwhelmed at Howl, their third LP. I loved the title track and a few others, but it took me until recently to really appreciate it. The new album is pretty much like their first album, but just not as good. Got me back into them. Still very good nonetheless. Their second had more of a surreal sound like "Still Suspicion holds You Tight", which by the way is a great track.

Zach get these tracks.

1.Love Burns

2.White Palms

3.Awake

4.Red Eyes and Tears

5.Howl

6.Stop

7.And I'm Aching

8.666 Conducer

This should give you a real good glimpse into them.

I gotta say this album is blowing me away as of right now

Clap your hands say yeah.......... "Some Loud Thunder" produced by Brian Eno.

I had these guys pegged as talking head wannabes and one album wonders. Boy was I wrong.

Thanks for the tip. I will investigate.

I like what I've heard of CYHSY. I love "Emily Jean Stock." The critics who were pounding this album for not matching up to the debut are ridiculous.

Cee-Lo Green ... Is The Soul Machine

Cee-Lo's debut album had been an interesting listen but resonated with very few listeners, so some changes were due for his second go-round, Cee-Lo Green Is the Soul Machine, which is indeed a drastically improved effort. Arista head honcho L.A. Reid had no doubt let Cee-Lo fly his freak flag high and mighty for Cee-Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections (2002), for what resulted was an album that was, in a word, curious — a sprawling carnival of Dirty South-inflected soul singing that knew no boundaries whatsoever, willfully professing its weirdness on out-there songs like the lead single, "Closet Freak," the closest Cee-Lo came to crossing over commercially. In other words, cross over à la OutKast he didn't — not by a long shot. In fact, most listeners took him at face value and wrote him off as a freak. It'd be a real shame if that happened again with Cee-Lo Green Is the Soul Machine. Sure, the big guy is still fairly weird here, but he's tastefully weird and, above all, focused this time. He's written a stronger batch of songs and has aligned himself with some of the best producers in the industry (the entire industry, that is): Timbaland and the Neptunes, most notably, and also Jazze Pha, Organized Noize, and DJ Premier. How he managed to rein in such a team of big-money producers is a good question (maybe the concurrently dismissed L.A. Reid can answer that one), but the result is nothing short of delightful. The album opens with a flawless run of radio-ready tunes — "The Art of Noise" through "My Kind of People" — and then spins off into a mélange of Cee-Lo-isms: stream-of-consciousness spoken word-style raps that cut deep, stirred into kaleidoscopic musical arrangements that straddle the hip-hop and deep soul eras simultaneously, all of it utterly distinct from track to track, ultimately culminating all too soon at the 65-minute mark. Once again Cee-Lo has recorded a peerless album, except this time he's recorded one that should connect, or at least deserves to. OutKast's Speakerboxx/The Love Below (especially André 3000's half) is probably the best touchstone you're liable to find this side of your imagination, in terms of not only style but also quality and vision.

I'd like to note that this review is wrong -- Soul Machine is a good album, but Cee-Lo is better when he's weirder. This one is not as good as his first album or the Gnarls Barkley side project.
