Cee-Lo Green...Is the Soul Machine

Lead Performer: Cee Lo; Producer (group): Arista

Intent on proving he’s as multifaceted as fellow Dirty South eclectics OutKast, the former Goodie Mobber casts a wide net on his second album. The forays into ”soul” – warm, street-party hip-hop R&B like ”My Kind of People” and ”All Day Love Affair” – sparkle, as do his playful raps. But boast-heavy collaborations with Timbaland and Ludacris drag things down. In ”Die Trying,” Lo writes his own review: ”I can be a pretty good thug/But it wouldn’t compare to a great me.”
