Editorial Reviews

Feed the Animals is composed almost entirely of samples taken from other artists' songs, plus minor original instrumentation by Girl Talk. Gillis has stated that the album was created as one long piece of music and then subsequently broken into individual songs. In their December 2008 issue, Blender magazine named Feed the Animals as the #2 best album of 2008, behind only Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girl Talk: Feed the Animals May 21, 2009
By Brian
Format:MP3 Music
Greg Gillis wants to feed us: his "tigers", his fans. In May 2006, he bitch-slapped the summer into an early start by dropping the ~*pArTy AlBuM oF tHa YeAr*~,Night Ripper. Critical success was substantial, though the dubious legality of Girl Talk's artistic medium prevented the album from rolling on any major hype-machinery. Still, an underground following gave Gillis the success he needed to literally quit his day job (as a biomedical engineer no less) and tour in support of Night Ripper full time.

If Secret Diary and Unstoppable were products of a Macbook Geek's glitchy sample-obsession, ,Feed the Animals (technically his fourth "LP", if you can call it that) is a distillation of the unparalleled skill revealed in Night Ripper's mind-blowingly unexpected mash-ups. Like the hippest upstart chefs from Soho to San Fran, Gillis mixes unexpected flavors to astounding success; though it didn't seem possible to top the eclecticism of Night Ripper, Feed the Animals has in fact proven a more diverse entree, captivating the senses with mixtures of Daft Punk and Fleetwood Mac, UGK and the Unicorns (full sample list on Wikipedia).
Where Girl Talk's forebears DJ Shadow and The Avalanches went for cohesive combinations of samples from a variety of sources, Gillis takes a more streamlined approach: he tears up the entire pop canon. So instead of impressive, behemoth songs like "Frontier Psychiatrist", Girl Talk operates in "AHA!" moments, placing songs into new contexts that somehow sound more natural than their original structures. The album has you wondering whether Kanye didn't secretly conspire to produce "No Diggity" 11 years after the fact.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feed The Animals Historical Context April 19, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Though "mashups" are a relatively new phenomenon, the general idea behind their creation is not. As with most electronic music, there is a deep connection between the past and present, and this is certainly the case in Girl Talk's album Feed The Animals. Often known more for his piracy than artistic value, Gregg Gillis, or, Girl Talk, successfully places together music from many different genres and decades in a way that allows a multitude of people to appreciate the music in their own way. While appreciating the melodious verses created in Feed The Animals, I also intend to give it a sort of historical perspective in electronic music for a further appreciation of the music.

Being able to listen to only the catchiest or most inventive parts of various songs is one of the many reasons why mashups are so enjoyable. Perhaps my favorite song on the album, "No Pause", blends many of my favorite melodies and lyrics of songs by Jurassic 5, Heart, and Yael Naim, as well as many others. While each of these songs has a great amount of value from start to finish, there are certain parts that stand out above the rest, each of which is highlighted in "No Pause." Putting these different samples together reminds me of an almost modern day version of musique concrète, as the creators Pierre Schaeffer and Pierre Henry were some of the first to splice together parts of electronic recordings. As pioneers of experimental electronic music, artists such as Gregg Gillis still use many of the same ideas as those found in many of the early musique concrète recordings.

Perhaps the only thing better than listening to the best parts of various songs played in one song is when they are layered over one another.
