The sample driven mayhem of Girl Talk's record is like choosing the music category on Jeopardy while the intellectual property rights police are wrestling you for the handheld buzzer. By brazenly citing fair use as punk veterans Negativeland did, Girl Talk's mash-ups incorporate all kinds of stuff to terrific effect and when strung together as one seamless mp3 Feed the Animals is a pretty magical rock experience. And as the magical season of virgin births and flying sleighs is upon us, I'm a believer in the gift of Girl Talk.
Pay what you please at Illegal Art or come up with a reason to pay nothing at all. It's really that easy and tough times call for tough musical choices.
