  1. Odd Couple is every bit as musically inventive as "Elsewhere."
  2. Across forty minutes, this is epic yet compact, a film noir in garish technicolour, an album made up of potential singles.
  3. The Odd Couple is an emotionally and musically provocative album. Despite its weighty subject matter, it’s also one hell of a fun listen.
  4. The Odd Couple [is] thirteen songs chock full of honest, unabashed, experimental self-expression that isn't afraid to take chances.
  5. While the production values on the album are stronger, so is The Odd Couple's focus on Cee-Lo's voice.
  6. The Odd couple is a complusively listenable, if somber, effort. [28 Mar 2008, p.65]
  7. The Odd Couple is the exhilarating sound of the band geeks and theater weirdoes taking over the school.

    A focused record that plays better with each listen. This has many growers, and one of their strongest tracks "Who's gonna save my soul."
