March 18th (release on iTunes) marked the debut release of The Odd Couple (on March 20th, it will be released on album).  I got the album off of iTunes, and can't stop listening to it!  Every track is just a new sensation to my ears, and is a complete masterpiece follow up to the groups first release.  The only complaint someone could have about this album would be that the genre of the songs (like beats and styles of tunes) changes at every other track.  While that does give the album some variety, and I am not complaining about it, it is just something you don't see very often.

The Odd Couple is now number one on the U.S. Digital Chart.  The "Odd Couple" that is Gnarls Barkley made a bold move, and decided to release the album much earlier then they had originally planned.  The album was due to out for release in April of 08', but was moved forward to March 18th (on iTunes), and March 20th (on disc).  The album is coming at a perfect time, where new music and hits can be played on the radio, internet, and as all you college basketball fans know, during March Madness.

While the album is pretty solid, the album itself is pretty good.  If you really haven't heard of the dynamic duo that makes up Gnarls Barkley, and want to hear the stuff they do, go to your corner store, and pick up their first album entitled, St. Elsewhere.  The first release from Gnarls Barkley was a huge hit, and I have a strong feeling that once the full album comes out on disc, it will be an even bigger hit!  Check out their first album by stopping into your corner music store, and pick up their first album.  Check out the track listing, and the two music videos provided below (each music video is a single from the album).
