Girl Talk, Feed the Animals

What will people be willing to pay for an album of songs that are created from samples of other songs? Girl Talk AKA Gregg Gillis is out with a new mashup album, available in pay-what-you-want format here.

Regardless of what people may think about the “originality” of remixes, or the potential legal issues associated with sampling/mashups etc, I must say that Feed the Animals is one fun party album. Each track is a creative, seamless flurry of samples from past and current hits, guilty pleasures and other surprising hidden gems (e.g. Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop” played over Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under the Bridge” guitar riff?)… I’ve listened to this album straight through about 3 times today just trying to pick out songs I recognize. It's that entertaining to me. So props to Girl Talk—Feed the Animals is like Ritalin for my musical A.D.D.
