iTunes Review

Granted, in Asher Roth’s DNA there are traces of white rappers past — one can hear the lackadaisical flow of early Beck crossbred with Paul Barman’s Caucasian annunciation and Eminem’s mischievous punchlines — but in the end Asleep In the Bread Aisle has less to do with hip-hop than it initially appears. Despite the presence of club beats like “She Don’t Wanna Man,” Roth’s major-label debut is a laid-back, feel-good affair — the kind of music that would fit in easily between Ben Harper and Sublime in a dorm party playlist. The collage-like sounds are reminiscent of Beck’s Mellow Gold and Odelay, but Roth is nowhere near as much of an art school eccentric. If anything, his style seems to update the ideas of Nineties bands like Cake and the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, although Cee-Lo’s presence here is a quick reminder of Roth’s affinity for Gnarls Barkley. So what if Asher Roth is not the new Eminem, and is instead just making party tunes for his likeminded collegiate peers? He hosts a good party, and is right at home as the highly-quotable master of ceremonies.

Asher Roth-Asleep In The Bread Aisle

Featured as one of the top 10 freshman to blow up in ’09 by XXL magazine, suburban white kid Asher Roth brings his chilled out feel good lyrics to album. Adding a new flavor, here’s how Asleep In The Bread Aisle fairs. Lark On My Go Cart: The boom bap production and humorous lyrics explain Roth perfectly and really give you an insight to who he is and what he’s about. A college boy looking for hot girls, while smoking and partying. Boasting hot moms and describing himself as a “dork” with “hair like a troll doll”, it’s a fitting start. 3.5/5 Blunt Cruisin’: A chilled out bassline and sing a long hook make for a relaxed ride around the town stoned. The track has some funny lines, however falters and is ultimately forgettable. 2.5/5 I Love College: Ben Allen & Mike Caren truly craft an irresistible college party starter, as relaxed guitars rock and Roth delivers a smooth hook about “college, beer, smoking, women and partying”. A catchy number that becomes a bit cliched in the chanting, it serves its purpose as a party track and resembling Roth as a fun college rapper. 4/5 La Di Da: Another sing songy hook, Roth spits about life’s struggles and frustration that comes. He plays it off like “La di da da da da”, while the lyrics are for the most part solid, the track remains decent. 3/5 Be By Myself: Cee-Lo drops his soulful vocals to the hook, while the uptempo number has Roth wanting to be alone, while groupies surround. It’s a likeable number that has potential but doesn’t seem to possess the hit qualities of “I Love College”. 3.5/5 She Don’t Wanna Man: Based on women who just want to party and have fun, not looking for a man, Roth plays the drunk college partyer, while Keri croons on the chorus as the ladies perspective. The repetitive emphasis on the last word fits with the perpetual synths, but the track doesn’t appeal as well as it should. Decent. 3/5 Sour Patch Kids: Delivering some social consciousness, Roth shows he’s more than the college act, as Oren Yoel cooks up another grooving production of guitars. Shows some versatility and Roth proves he has some lyrical fire. As I Em: Suffering from the comparisons to Eminem, the witty titled and concept of “As I Em”, has Roth facing the topic head on. Boiling down to the beginning as a kid, Roth spits “I was in 7th grade when I heard the Slim Shady LP, my mom brought it down when I was ironing, irony”. Chester French nails the hook and Roth shines on this one. 4/5 Lion’s Roar: Sparse production that focuses mainly on a drum based beat, while scratchy guitars join along with a cooing hook. Roth raps at a fast paced, boasting of his bed abilities and willing to fight for his pride. Busta Rhymes’ rapid flow is likeable and fitting, however he isn’t saying anything new. 3/5 Bad Day: The slightly humorous storytelling of Roth of a day gone bad, is entertaining at times, however tends to fall flat. Jazze Pha puts on a Cee-Lo impression but the track is overall mundane. 2.5/5 His Dream: Unknown Miguel croons softly on the hook, as pondering strings unravel and a serious Roth speaks on his father’s influence on him. The most heartwarming track of the album, it shows that when Roth gets serious, he’s one to be reckoned with, as he delivers an excellent lyrical piece here. 4/5 Fallin’: Feel good vibed beat and flow from Roth, has him reminiscing on the good old days. Fitting his ordinary white kid persona, Roth sounds at home and in element with this number. 4.5/5 Perfectionist: Philadelphia native Beanie Sigel assists Roth, while the reggae tinged Rock City add island flavor to pop ready production. Worthy bonus that has Roth rippin it up with Beans. 3/5 The Lounge: The dim lit club vibe and supporting piano keys are nice, as Roth questions what rappers are supposed to look like and offers some intriguing lyrics. Solid bonus. 3.5/5 Roth proves to be a promising young emcee, however he doesn’t fully show it here. Expressing himself as a fun going college kid who mainly parties with girls, he also shows other personas of sincere son and socially conscious minded youth. His mixture of humor and fun are likeable and completely appealing to his audience of college dorms and MTV, who should be satisfied to his debut. However, some topics become tiresome and ultimately forgettable, as the sing a long hook of “Blunt Cruisin’” is nice, but the track overall is dull. Other times, he sounds alright, but the track ends up being bland and nothing notable. “She Don’t Wanna Man” is brightened up by Keri, but then falls into boredom, the dull backdrop on “Bad Day” and mundane flow can be entertaining, but also a bit irritating, especially Pha’s hook. When Roth really hits home is numbers like the infectious “I Love College”, the balanced mix of humor and lyricism of “Lark On My Go Kart”, and witty “As I Em”. The heartwarming “His Dream” and feel good “Fallin’” also shine, showing Asher’s ordinary guy persona well. It’s a decent debut that will satisfy his fanbase, but little more than that. Rating: 7 out of 10
