Comment:

Brian Joseph Burton, aka Danger Mouse, is a producer extraordinaire. Like Todd Rundgren, he is very good making his own music, but his best work comes from producing others. He burst onto the scene with his famous (or infamous) internet bootleg of acapellas from Jay-Z's The Black Album combined with instrumentals from The Beatles' White Album. It was hailed by several music critics as the recording of the year in 2004, though not one CD was ever sold.

Burton took his stage name from a British cartoon series of the same name because he was too shy to show his face, so he performed sets in a mouse outfit. It is from that strange beg`inning that he eventually came to partner with Cee-Lo of Goodie Mob to form the duo Gnarls Barkley. The compilation of songs here features Danger Mouse's talents, either as a performer or producer.

Quiz - When the Boston Celtics won the NBA title last year, Kevin Garnett shouted out a phrase from a Danger Mouse song title. What was it? To the winner goes a copy of the mix tracked and with artwork.

Yes, he is SO brilliant, funny, and genre-crossing that he can make old things new again. Super mix!
All I recall from the playoffs is Garnett crying and screaming "Anything is possible!" and "Top of the world!" He was OVER the top at that moment.

What more can I say was the third phrase he shouted.
