Girl Talk is the solo project of Greg Gillis (DJ/remixer), famous for his mixtape-like remixes of dozens of songs in a musical mash-up. Feed the Animals is his fourth album (after Secret Diary, Unstoppable and Night Ripper) and available for free download from June 19, following Radiohead’s footsteps. Things are quite straightforward with Girl Talk; you know they produce mash-ups of beats and samples so you can’t expect much different from this album either. Each track offers a small trip in pop music history, with dozens of samples parading every minute. So I guess, if you hate this kind of music mix (as in his previous albums) then you’ll most probably hate this one as well (as fellow blogger BLR said “this makes me dizzy”). However, for those like myself who appreciate a good mix, the album is yet another hour of musical entertainment with dozens of tracks that we loved into a dance frenzy. I admit that in some tracks the mixes aren’t totally successful, but in most others they really tie in to produce a new song on their own. And all this for free!!
