A surefire winner
Cee Lo Green - The Lady Killer

Green gives his solo career a kick up the arse on this third album. If the brilliant ‘Fuck You’ hitting Number One was a surprise, he must be rubbing his hands with glee now - a good third of ‘The Lady Killer’ is a match for that song.

Alas, tracks like ‘Bodies’ are so overwrought they’re rendered unintentionally hilarious, and with one eye on the Vandross market, he piles on the schmaltz by the bucketload. As attempts at storming the mainstream go, this looks like a surefire winner, but musically it feels like a lesser take on Outkast’s ‘The Love Below’.
