    Gillis's vision becomes less orgiastic and more humanistic.

    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.

    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.

    For the uninitiated though, this is essential listening for any member of the iTunes set; crafting your next playlist will likely turn into a transcendental experience after you hear how uncannily Drake goes along with Flock of Seagulls.

    He always finds weird new emotional nuances in the samples.

    Depending on your susceptibility to this cut-and-paste style (and probably your age), it could be either the best thing, or the worst, you've heard all year.

    Frustrated fanboy headscratching aside, the point is simple: All Day is a misstep of the worst kind, wherein Gillis' craft devolves from transformative to parasitic.

    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 winnerAll 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. Expand

    This album will have your ears doing a double-take. Girl Talk is going to be the next big thing (either because of IPR suits or popularity)This album will have your ears doing a double-take. Girl Talk is going to be the next big thing (either because of IPR suits or popularity) and this album is only adding to his legend. Is the music his? No. But does that make it any less genius? He uses other people's beats like a guitar, and their hooks like a microphone. Genius. Expand

    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 toi 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...
