By now you’ve probably downloaded Girl Talk’s latest album, All Day, for free. Or maybe you were one of those fanboy detectives who tracked down all 372 of the album’s samples and posted them to Wikipedia within the first couple of hours.  (More on Are Girl Talk and Other Mashup Artists Violating Copyright?)

Well folks, the next step is here, and it’s pretty damn cool. One fan/web programmer (who goes by  Brahn) has taken the All Day experience to the next level. Mashup Breakdown details all the nitty gritty song snippets used through the album and pairs them with colorful infographic overlays to show you exactly where the samples start and end.  Want to see where Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” butts heads with Nas? Or how about where Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” catches the baton from Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”? Well, now you can.

It’s fun stuff, but with all the copyright controversy swirling around the album, are meme-ish projects like this just baiting the record companies to take legal action even more?

What do you guys think? More importantly, do you love it? Hate it? Wish mashups would die already? Tell us below.
