I have to admit, when a friend of mine recommended that I get ahold of the Girl Talk album, “Feed the Animals“, I thought he was completely insane. I mean, Girl Talk? WTF? That sounds suspiciously like a Pussycat Dolls-esque girl group. Okay, yes, certain PCD songs may be my dirty little secret, but an entire album?
How wrong I was. Now I understand why this has been listed as one of the greatest albums of 2008. It’s not even remotely a girl group album. You know every song that has a catchy beat or chorus or whatnot? Well, they’re ALL on this album. If you threw this album on at most any party, you’d have a very happy group of people there. It’s just a ton of samples layered over one another and it’s absolutely amazing. Like, let’s be real here — anything that layers Jay-Z’s “Roc Boys” over Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android” is pretty amazing in and of itself.
It was released under the Creative Commons license and is therefore FREE to download — it was released where people could “donate” if they wanted to, but it wasn’t required to download the entire album.
