iTunes Review

Without a doubt one of the game's most jocked and influential underground emcees, Aesop Rock has a hugely passionate, global fanbase that hangs on his every word. Known for his raspy, almost Tom Waits–esque delivery, hyper-intricate lyricism, and overtly nontraditional flow, he is (along with Atmosphere, El-P, anticon, Sage Francis, et al.) at least partly responsible for the legions of awkward-sounding white emo rappers roaming the Internet. Skelethon is his sixth full album, and his first since 2007's None Shall Pass. It's also the first time he's produced every song, and he flexes his appropriately chaotic and cacophonous beat style over the course of 15 tracks. Guest features are limited (just Kimya Dawson of The Moldy Peaches on "Crows 1"), letting Aesop fully do his thing, delivering vivid and twisted narratives that bounce between dark and goofy, lighthearted and deadly serious. If you're looking for danceable club jams with Auto-Tune hooks, keep moving; but if you're already an Aes disciple, you're gonna LOVE this.

My favorite Aesop record

Amazing album. His most personal record to date. Bit of Loss and death are major themes on album Instrumentals and rhymes are incredible

Aesop represents what we love about hip hop...what I love that is...give it a listen three times and find three different layers and grow in the music.
The last thirty seconds of Cycles to Gehenna are worth the full price of the album on their own.

Ace rock

Another great album in the evolution of his career. Real hip hop with creativity. Been a fan for ten years and have yet to be disappointed. Good job. Worth buying.

Building on the rapping style of eccentrics Kool Keith and Del the Funky Homosapien, Def Jux headliner Aesop Rock became one of the hottest MCs in the post-millennial underground. After a pair of self-released LPs (Appleseed, Music for Earthworms), he recorded Float for Mush in 2000. The former Ian Bavitz then issued a pair of singles -- "Coma" and "Boom Box" -- for another underground rap label paragon, Definitive Jux. His second full-length, 2001's Labor Days, earned positive reviews and featured...
