As I was finishing an interview with Gregg Gillis in July 2006, he casually mentioned his desire to see M. Night Shyamalan's just-released fantasy movie Lady in the Water. Given the film's wretched reviews-- a pitiful 24% on Rotten Tomatoes-- and the train-wreck hype surrounding it, I thought he was kidding. He wasn't; Gillis liked some of Shyamalan's other flicks, so he wanted to check this one out. Simple. And it's this omnivorous, pleasure-seeking attitude toward pop culture that defines his work as Girl Talk. (Luckily, his taste in music is superior to his taste in film.)

As a huge fan of the recent music mashup craze, hearing that this album was one of its precursors filled me with excitement. Not gonna lie, this album had me going from beginning to end, and is one of the landmarks in the plunderphonics and mashup genres; not only that, but serves a good nostalgic purpose simultaneously, delivering that "oh wow I remember this" moment without being obnoxious or pandering. It's a wonderful listen through and through.
This gets points for making me smile, but I can't see myself ever listening to it again.
