Cee-Lo Green. . .Is The Soul Machine!

CD (Item 492609) Arista, 2004 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.80 4

Cee-Lo took a sideways detour into messed up funk n' soul on the last album, but he steers straight back into the freaked out MC guise he perfected earlier with the Goodie Mobb for the interestingly titled . . . Is The Soul Machine album. (Did he choose that title before he decided to largely absolve himself of that new-fangled Cameo-esque funk approach?) The first solo LP got an A for effort from us, but this is the Cee Lo we really want to hear. Gravelly voiced, dirty south hip hop without a trace of pretension – just solid, funky dirty southin' from one of the prime vocal innovators of the last decade. Production and/or appearances by Pharrell, Neptunes, Timbaland, Jazze Pha, T.I., Ludacris and others. "Soul Machine", "The Art Of Noise", "Living Again", "I'll Be Around", "The One", "My Kind Of People", "Childz Play", "I Am Selling Soul", "All Day Love Affair", "Die Trying" and more.  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

A loose set of tracks from the Outkast-Goodie Mobb-Organized Noize collective – heavily steeped in Late 70s Funkadelic and of course featuring the cream of the ATL's hip hop world. Tracks include "Crooked Booty", "Follow The Light", the nice nod to Kraftwerk "Trans ... CD

The Juice Crew at it's best with Marley Marl twisting the knobs – the Cold Chillin classic from MC Shan! Born To Be Wild is the middle effort in a trio of great, and at this point underappreciated album MC Shan cut for Cold Chillin, leaving a pretty solid legacy if strong mid 80s rap with ... CD

Black Widow
CTI, 1976. Used
Funky 70s work from Lalo – with a bit of a disco twist, and plenty of the electric jazz funk elements that were showing up in his soundtracks at the time. Lalo's on keyboards, playing a cool host of electric ones that give the record a nice spacey sound over the top of the funky arrangements. ... CD
