Gregg Gillis: genius or hack? It seems that no one can agree whether Girl Talk is an indication of Gillis' brilliance or music's agonizing decline into postmodern muck. Gillis' mixes mash up your favorite jukebox hits with a shock of bass. Feed the Animals, from 2008, super-collides tracks - "Gimme Some Lovin'," "The Weight" and "Bitches Ain't Shit" - to make a profoundly danceable, stream-of-consciousness flow. So is it philosophically awesome or awful? Neither. Girl Talk is a party, and flying woodchips won't stop feet from stomping at his booze-infused dance jam.
