Girl Talk's 4th album does little to mess with the successful formula developed on 2006's Night Ripper: take 2 parts filthy rap vocals, 2 parts pop/rock/alternative/indie hooks and riffs, mix well and serve over a bed of hard hitting beats and scores of samples that you just can't quite recognise. So far, so 2 many DJs - and in truth Girl Talk doesn't do anything that we haven't seen before. But what he does so successfully is keep the whole mash-up fresh, fun and dosed with a heavy pop-sensibility. Where 2 Many DJs go dance, Girl Talk keeps the hooks and rhymes flowing and before you know it Jay-Z is rapping over Avril Lavigne and Toni Basil, or Kanye is rhyming over Radiohead. The energy is infectious, the production is superb, and the end result is an insanely good mash-up mix-tape.
The only note of caution I would sound is that you should be aware that that "Explicit" tag is there for a reason, and there is a lot (and I mean a lot) of both swearing and sexual references).
