Freebie Adventures: Cee-Lo Is A Real Straight Shooter On 'Stray Bullets'

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Cee-Lo doesn't need to release The Lady Killer, his upcoming solo effort. Stray Bullets is proof of that. The mixtape that plays like an album is jammed packed with a collage of sounds that eclectically combines what Cee-Lo conceived sound wise during tenures in groups The Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley, as well as production from mainly The Grey Area and Cee-Lo's ever flowing mind of ideas.

After getting around to the first single off of the expecting, The Lady Killer, "Georgia" (which I will talk about sometime later), the goods kept flowing with Stray Bullets. Some songs feel like theme songs to 1970's sitcoms, while others moody 80's New Wave homages, and then back into modern hip-hop and neo-soul territory. You'll expect to hear The B-52's make an appearance on this on the fast n' furious, "Cho Cho The Cat" and Esthero fans will get a surprise with "ChamPain" which continues that brilliant slice of musicianship in Esthero's interlude, "Flipher Overture" from her 1997 debut, Breath From Another. Let's just say that you won't be bored with this. Get your freebie on, and check after the cut for the tracklisting. Consider this a brilliant warm-up for what Cee-Lo is to be bringing on The Lady Killer. Can't wait.
