    I have 8 cuts from this project. Two of them as a friend of mine says, "I can't use 'em." But "Crazy" and "Smiley Faces" are the standout tracks. There's one cut that has really horrid drums that come in and out and it's slowly moving towards my "can't use" list.

    "Crazy" is the best song I've heard in a minute... I didn't think anything was going to replace that T.I. song as my joint of the year.

    I finally heard "Crazy"- I LOVE IT! Unfortunately so does the entire world - It's gonna be the "Hey Ya" of 2006.

    Well, I've heard the whole album now and have to say that no sir I don't like it.

    Crazy is a catchy tune and it's good to see it do well but the rest of the album really didn't offer up much in the way of decent tracks to me. Maybe I'm coming at it from the wrong angle but it really didn't appeal to these ears.

    "Crazy" has sold almost 350,000 copies in the UK already, not including downloads. It'll probably do similar numbers elsewhere, with the possible exception of the US where the singles market is relatively small. None of this will hurt the album one bit. Like I said further up this thread, the kind of crowd who dig Moby or Fatboy Slim will eat this up. Neither of those acts managed to follow their biggest albums with anything nearly as impressive in sales terms, so there could be a larger audience for a record like this than many strutters might expect.

    It's catchy in a RJD2-Moby way. i really don't know why some people like that song.

    I'm with you on this - it got a lot of airtime being used on BBC adverts for Radio 1 over here so was well known before it actually got released which no doubt helped create the buzz. I think Cee-Lo's vocals work well on it but it doesn't really strike me as anything particularly special.

    Also, the album is basically Cee-Lo and DM fucking about with sounds and I can see a lot of people who bought it expecting more Crazy style songs to be returning it within the week.

    Co-sign. There are a few songs I thought were okay, but its not an album that I would ever listen to straight through. Crazy is still the jam though and everyone who I have played it for seems to agree.

    I acctually called every record store in LA yesterday and only the most random spot in Echo park had it....It's a big song! I'm fine with that.

    I'm curious where in America this is getting crazy play- I've listened to an MP3 a couple times on the PC but have never heard it elsewhere. Its not on teevee... and I doubt it will ever hit rap radio... so where is it getting play? College radio, pop radio, both?

    Its not on teevee...

    They played this song in the background during Grey's Anatomy last Sunday.

    Well I played "Crazy" TWICE at my bar gig the other night...

    ... and my homeboy (who admittedly works at a record store) already knew it.

    Plus on one of the local college stations last week, dude played it with the remark "everybody's calling in and going nuts for this song...because it's awesome." So it's getting out there. And keep in mind the album isn't released in the US until next week.

    Regarding the UK, "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley has made pop history as the UK's first number one song based on download sales alone.

    We could be looking at another M.I.A. syndrome of massive hype but little commercial success, but as long as "Crazy" gets a fair shake at promotion, I think this song is a lock for top-40, college, commercial alternative & MTV play. HIp-Hop and r'n'b radio could catch on too, "Hey Ya" style, if the mood is right.

    Just for the record, MIA did nearly 300,000 albums worldwide without the benefit of anything like a big radio/club hit or high-profile film/TV/ad synch. While those numbers aren't that impressive in comparison to, say, T.I's first week, it still ain't too shabby for a new, non-mainstream, female artist's first album, which was on an indie everywhere else in the world except the US.
