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.

Aesop rock is back to his old tricks. Maybe it's all that fresh San Fran air but this album is amazing. Don't be an idiot and buy this right now.

Thank you Aes!!!!

Never disappoints. I have only discovered Aesop again within the last year. The first time I heard him was on a Lyracist Lounge Album when I was in Highshcool and I lost track of him. Being out in Santa Cruz CA, it was pretty hard to get his albums. Lucky for me times have changed and you can get anything online now. I have quickly collected great music from one of the most unique and impressive artist I have ever heard. He quickly has become my favorite MC currently releasing albums. He keeps me believing that HIP HOP IS NOT DEAD AND THERE IS STILL MCS OUT THERE THAT KEEP ME WANTING MORE!!!! AGAIN, THANK YOU AES!!!!

If you're reading reviews buy this album.

Aesop Rock is back after five years with an album that both evokes his signature lyrical style and moves continuously forward with well mixed well balanced beats.
In a time when mainstream rap songs can contain a minimum of ten words, it's nice to hear rappers with a vocabulary, and Aes does not disappoint. As usual, this album is a journey with several themes woven through it that will take some listening, even for the avid Aesop fan.
Overall, the album flows well, with storytelling and commentary intermixed through mountainous baselines, and deep valleys of insight.
That being said "Hey Ian. The new album is awesome, but I still pray you rerelease music for earthworms."

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...
