The long awaited feature length collaboration between two of hip hop's most unconventional MCs--Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic--has finally come to fruition in Hail Mary Mallon's debut effort, Are You Gonna' Eat That?, officially released by Rhymesayers Entertainment.

The project, both as a group and album, is a conceptual effort. Mary Mallon (also known as Typhoid Mary), is said to be the first person (on record) in the US to be identified as a healthy carrier of the typhoid virus. What's more, Mary Mallon was a cook by vocation, and depending upon who tells the story, you'll hear any number of casualties/infections which resulted from Ms. Mallon's unfortunate dedication to her profession. The obscurity of such a bizarre figure who, outside the minds of Aesop and Rob, would never intersect with the world of hip-hop, provides a perfect launching pad for this collaboration.

Aesop and Rob handle full responsibilities for the album's creation with the exception of one single accomplice, Dj Big Wiz (who establishes a subtle presence on the turntables). While the production of certain tracks are undeniably Rob Sonic ("Grubstake," "Plagues and Bacon," and "Breakdance Beach"), and others, clearly spawned on Aesop's laptop ("Church Pants" "Garfield," and "Smock"), the album as a whole, comes together in a seamlessly conjoined series of sporadic experimental sounds, arranged in distinct patterns to diverging rhythms, and of course, adorned with inventive, mind-bending lyrical imagery--all unparalleled in the genre.

Consistent with Sonic's and Aes' cryptic styles, the album's semantic content is illogically sequenced and shrouded in ambiguity.
As Sonic opens "Garfield,"
Diamond in the back // gun proof top // I inside metal mouth, kung fu chop!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Auditory Consumption May 14, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
To say this release is anything less than a full course auditory eargasam would be a detriment to society as a whole. I have been an Aesop fan since music for earthworms. I have made a personal commitment to better living through Aesop's lyricisam by consuming mass doses every release he has ever had except none shall pass. (not for me) With the assistance of long time friend and collaborator Rob Sonic ... lyrically speaking this release is nothing short of astounding. With the exception of the amusing, but less amazing cut Breakdance Beach every note, beat, voice, word, and melody on this cd is not only "single" worthy.... it just feels like SO RIGHT! Dj Big Whiz rounds out the trio bringing his usual buskets of mad beats and scratch post slaying skills. I have officially labeled this the "BEST REAL HIP HOP RELEASE" of 2011. Do your self and your community a favor. Pick up this release and then share with you friends... MMMMM MMMMM Good!

5.0 out of 5 stars M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-Meter Feeder! October 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This cd was bound to happen as Aesop and Rob Sonic sound great together on tracks. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I that I was a sleeper on this. Did an Itunes search for Ace and found out that I didn't have this morsel. Lo and behold this joint has been on heavy spins since I snatched it from my postal workers mailbag. He was none too happy. In fact, it was totally worth the two-to-the-back that I caught running back to my house to listen. The hospital stay was lovely as I bumped this cd in my Ipod

This was a great album, top to bottom. Rob really showed he skills and the Whiz's beats are beast. Table Talk by far the best song on the album.

Great cd by two great artists. defiantly a fresh breath in rap music. Aesop and Rob Sonic are a great combo and really do a good job together without giving up any of their independent style that makes them so good separately.
