    Gillis's vision becomes less orgiastic and more humanistic.

    Sublime production quality and danceability aside, this mix scores as a chronicle of American pop music that elicits a dual layer of nostalgia: the first for the sampled songs themselves, the second for the thrill of the novelty of early mash-ups.

    All Day offers a departure of sorts from Night Ripper and Feed the Animals, his previous releases. The composition of those two essentially follow the same furious blueprint, whereas All Day allows the musical ideas a bit more time to breathe and evolve.

    All Day is just a refinement of Gillis' technique. The samples are somehow more karaoke-machine-universal than ever.

    Against those odds, Gillis turns these perceived weaknesses into strengths; as his most fussed-over and carefully plotted album, All Day paradoxically sounds like his most effortless.

    All Day provides the soundtrack to the ultimate dance party, urging us to scream out the songs we know and to just have fun. It's nothing new for Girl Talk, really, but then again, what is?
  7. Those who weren't sold on Gillis' act before aren't going to change their minds, but his records are consistently great, and All Day is no exception.

    i feel like this album is a divergence from Greg's original style. longer samples, little to no glitch. i wish he would have continued to use shorter samples and allowed the music to transform more. a little less creative in my opinion, Missy Elliot over rock... smells like 2manydjs just not as good of a mix...

    All Day's 372 overlapping samples will leave you dancing, singing and having a good time. The combinations of songs old and new is a winner here, just like every other Girl Talk album. Full Review »
