3 stars

Girl Talk, the DJ responsible for Feed the Animals, mashes current pop and hip hop with classic rock and 80s and 90s hits and more obscure tracks. Imagine Tag Team’s “Whoomp (There It Is)” mixed with ’80s classic “In a Big Country”, or Salt ‘n Pepa rapping over Nirvana’s “Lithium”, with a little bit of Deee-Lite thrown in. Music snobs might cringe at a song that commits the blasphemy of mashing up Ludacris and “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys, but those with a sense of humor will enjoy idenifing the songs featured in the irreverent mashups. This is a great album to listen to while getting ready for a night on the town, or just to get happy on your way to work.
