Q-Unit
The Silence Experiment
* * * 1/2
Mashups are usually pretty lousy remixs done by teenagers with too much time on their hands that ruin both songs at the same time, trying to be cute and say: "Hey these songs sound kinda the same!" And I'm not a fan of Queen or 50 Cent. But somehow remixing 50 Cent w/ Queen's greatest hits acutally works, and works really reall well. The audacity, pomposity, and flamboyancy of both artists, which comes off somewhat annoying on their own, comes off supa-cool together. Some of the songs seem like they were meant to be together, like 21 Questions and the Flash Gordon Theme, and Bohemiam Rhapsody w/ Wanksta. Some of the moments seem a little forced, and it's all about fiddy, but it's also the best album he never made.
