WHEN it comes to ladies, Cee Lo has a licence to kill, or so he claims in the intro of his new album.
With one listen, it appears the vocal extraordinaire of hefty proportion indeed does.
This is a soulful, often deeply romantic and finger-clicking-good album from the voice behind Gnarls Barkley and member of legendary Southern hip-hop outfit, Dungeon Family (includes Outkast).
Unfortunately, it features none of the big man's rapping, but it does offer some stellar tracks.
Synth-heavy Bright Lights Bigger City with Billy Jean bass launches the album into a slick pop frenzy, prompting listeners to hit the town on a charged-up Saturday night.
I want you and Wildflower are two more smooth-as-silk offerings, reminding people in love just how lucky they are.
Then there's song-of-the-minute, F**k You, which has been likened to Outkast's Hey Ya (not even close).
Look past this track - there's plenty more to discover.
