I love those late night infomercials for CD packages from Time-Life, you know like "sounds of the seventies" or "AM Gold." I love those infomercials because I don't have to sit through the entire song, I just hear the best parts and it gives me a memory from my childhood. This CD takes that idea a bit further. Not only do I get snippets of songs from the 70s, but there are songs included that were popular last month. All of it is swirled together and it don't stop. I've been facinated with "mash-ups" for quite a while, but this fills all of my want to hear any others. The pace of this disc keeps my attention the whole time. I have been listening to it so much I am a little afraid I'm going to memorize it and it will become predictable. There are some highlights: Notorious B.I.G. mixed with "Tiny Dancer," and my favorite, 2 LIVE Crew "We want some P****" playing over Pavement and Paul McCartney "Silly Love Songs." I love hearing Neutral Milk Hotel counting off at some point. I love hearing Ciara mixed in. M.I.A. sounds great in there at some point too. I don't know who does the song "Kryptonite," but on here it's great. I really hope to hear more from GIRL TALK and I hope it doesn't get popular enough to get pulled, maybe I shouldn't even be writing a review. Maybe I should give it a crappy review, but it rocks!

Keep this album at arm's length as long as possible and see how long before you're in its embrace. Owes as much to the "Hooked on Classics" genre of the 70s as it does contemporary mix n' mashes. The tracks manage to convey two ideas at once, and just as often, two truths about the same idea, as when the a 1970's chorus of "I love youuuu..." is matched with the 90's hip hop chant, "we want some pu**y..." Any song is as good as the next but why not try Bounce That which seems to hit a special kind of transendence toward the middle. Not suitable for children.

The title may seem a hasty assignment, but I have proclaimed (at last count) five different records that were supposed to be the best of the year. However, just when I think that the industry cannot surprise me beyond belief, artists keep doing it.
Most people will give this record a listen and associate the word "mash-up" with it. However apt the term may be, the production and the execution defies this definition and steps back as athird party and redefines all previous notions of the synonyms of and even the word itself.
Pitchfork Media claimed that, no matter how ambitious, no one can name all of the samples used on the record. This, with the word "mash-up" on the brain, may sound somewhat impossible. But, when Girl Talk uses anywhere between 20 and 40 samples on any one given track, the record becomes a finely arranged symphony of pop music and pop-culture. In essence, the disc makes me think of a research paper. The writer, Girl Talk, researched his beats, vocals, and instrumental lines beyond the call of duty. This record is a manifesto.
Just as a final note, Girl Talk does not just separate songs and their vocal lines, but shows his genius by splitting songs up and alternating pieces of songs in and out of the song, one minute mixing the vocals over a random mash of beats and instrumentals, and then alternates to the previous lyric set's instrumental track with a completely different sample on top of it.

To associate this artist: DJ Shadow and pop-culture meets the Invisible Skratch Picklz.

I discovered Girl Talk after stumbled across his remix of a Bonde Du Role song. There's 250 samples from 167 artists on the album. This is what happens when an engineering student discovers drugs. Play this album in your car and watch your friends ask, "hey, what is that?" Play it in a club and get everyone dancing. Sense of humor mandatory. Gregg Gillis is the mash up shiz.

This is one of the more different DJ mixes that I have ever heard. The only down side to this CD is that most of the tracks leave you wanting more. Track 5 is so good, that it was worth buying the CD, it is a mix with Notorious BIG and Elton John, it will blow your mind.

I stumbled upon this album purely by accident. I like mash-ups and always have, but I find most of them two dimensional and repetitive. One listen-through of this album and I was blown away. This album is more than just a jumble of music samples. There are a dozen or more samples in each song and they have been skillfully put together. The range of samples come from songs that are both old and new, nostalgic and currently popular, mashed together to create something familiar and completely new at the same time. Somehow, the samples work together cohesively, regardless of the age or genre of the song sampled and they are utilized/arranged in a way that they create something new, rather than just sounding like two, three, four songs that are similar in BPM, style, etc. and layered on top of each other. All of this makes for a fun and exciting listening experience. It's a fine line that's being treaded here, with Girl Talk scoring high because of the artful use of the samples.

Girl Talk is actually Gregg Gillis, who started making mash-ups when he was studying biomedical engineering at Case Western. My interest in Girl Talk increased when I learned more about Gillis. An advocate of the fair use doctrine, his brazen attitude against strict copyright laws make him both intriguing and controversial. He has been both criticized and praised for his work, receiving good reviews from both Time Magazine and Rolling Stone. Click on his Myspace page and the first thing you see is a link to purchase his newest album that says "Pay What You Want For The New Girl Talk Album".

For me, the combination of his composition skills and fair use beliefs make for a listening experience that's about more than just the samples.
