The Odd Couple

You've probably heard the song "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley. NPR called it the hit song of Summer '06. Everybody everywhere listened to it, it crossed genre and cultural boundaries. Just a great song.

The duo just released their new album, "The Odd Couple". It's okay. I downloaded it, but not from iTunes. They released it for free. That's right, download for nothin'. But the catch is...it's one long file...backwards.

That's okay for somebody who has done audio editing. But it must be enough of a deterent that they don't expect it to hurt record sales too much. Fun gimmick, and it gets me a free album.

I really like the music video for the song Going On. Hope you do too.


P.S. Don't ask me to make any sense of it. I just like the look of the thing. Striking.

There is one catch to the MP3 besides the fact that it's reverse and one lump track. The words are not there. Almost perfect.
