It's pretty tough to follow up that single, but anyone familiar with the past of Danger Mouse will know that no project he's involved with is likely to be any one-hit wonder, and indeed album 'St. Elsewhere' provides a few more potential singles to draw upon. Really more of a 3 star single (oh for a more precise ratings system), 'Smiley Faces' is a tight, funky, organic jam, showcasing another great vocal by Cee-lo and boasting several excellent hooks. As follow-ups to incredible singles go, it's a pretty good effort and a surefire hit for summer.
