Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The MC Paul Barman-friendly raps flipped by Aesop on his acclaimed 2001 Labor Days release generally didn’t register on most hip hop traditionalists scales. And Bazooka proves that he’s even less interested in appeasing the boom bap crowd. On "We’re Famous", Def Jux label head El-P and Aesop go after the, ahem, critics who might not view their futuro sound collages as legit hip hop. El-P raps "I laugh at critics claiming, 'Hip-hop’s over'/ F*** you, hip-hop just started." This being the first release where he handles the bulk of the production, Aesop intentionally goes all Def Jux, programming as many ultramodern found soundscapes on "NY Electric" and "The Greatest Pac-Man Victory Ever" (peep the sampled sounds from the classic video game) as is alienly possible. While his wordy and nearly incomprehensible verses on "Freeze" or "Mars Attacks" will either grate on the nerves or rate near genius, middling they’re not. It’s just a shame that the lack of soul in his rotating rap deliveries tends to undermine his masterful storytelling capabilities (like, who else writes brilliantly random songs about goings on in their life at 11:35 P.M. on January 21st ("11:35")). Fabolous fans run for cover, this is extreme backpacker rap at its grimiest. --Dalton Higgins

4.0 out of 5 stars The future of hip-hop. Are you ready for it? April 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There are people that live for music like this. The word for it is unique. If you are listening to this stuff, you obviously know a thing or two about underground rap. Underground hip-hop can often times be repetitive and sloppy too. Although the lyrics are always on the forefront in rap music, there is a lot to be desired when it comes down to the production. Obviously, there are going to be a lot of people that won't, or can't get into this record due to it's complexity. Aesop's lyrical delivery is too much for some people on it's own, let alone the production. That's why "Labor Days" and "Float" worked so well. Blockhead's genius production, although minimal, complimented Aesop's complicated flow brilliantly, making it much easier to focus on the lyrical content. "Bazooka Tooth" on the other hand, is a bit different. The production is often referred to as futuristic, since there are so many electronic sounds, bits, and quirks to it. Now, the music moves just as fast as Aesop does. His lyrics can be very difficult to pick out of the unforeseen production, which obviously frustrates some listeners. I for one, recommend listening to this album in headphones. The more you listen to, and pick apart music like this, the easier it is experience their artistic vision. You have to be a fan of progressive music of all kinds to appreciate this music. You'd probably enjoy this record more than most, if you can appreciate trip-hop, house or techno music. I also like this music a lot because of my love for progressive rock music, such as Yes, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Pink Floyd. If you are always looking at music as a progression, then you should appreciate the unique approach Aesop Rock has taken to improve this commercially decaying genre. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Just takes about twenty-five listens..... November 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've read an awful lot of reviews of this album, but there aren't any on this site. First, I'm undeniably a fan: "Labor Days" was a brilliant album, and I think this one might be more so. Second, when I bought this album, I didn't know what to make of it: I wasn't sure where it fit into the pantheon of good-to-great hip-hop albums. I've listened to it now a bundle of times -- probably twenty or so hours worth -- and I'm pretty sure it's in the top 20 hip-hop albums of the past few years, even if it's only the third- or fourth-best on Def Jux (and I'm not even sure it's that -- it might be better than "Labor Days" though I'm not sure it is.... Here's why:
First, if you don't like El-P, this probably isn't the album for you. Ace Rock didn't just record an album of "Lucy" songs -- which would have pleased a lot of critics of his (if you want that, go listen to Slug's old stuff). He always was a little angry, and he finally got his beats to line up with his words. It'd be hard to be a New York rapper with all of the chaos of the last few years; it'd be hard to write "Apartment 6B" if you had to tour; it'd be hard to stay with the same producer if what you were trying to do was in part artistic (which it really appears to be). He's pushing limits; he's breaking boundaries. In doing so, he put down a great album BUT it takes a lot of listening to to get that.
Second, I suppose I like Aesop Rock for different reasons than do other people. It seems like most of the people who hate this album like when he tells stories. It's never seemed to me that he was a story teller -- sometimes certainly -- but he's always been better compared to other rappers at twisting phrases -- the five to fifty word images that revolve around themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars you either get it or you don't September 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
well, i'm not about to call any of amazon's "professional" reviewers unqualified or even inept, but after reading mr. higgins review of aesop's new album i'm very tempted to. granted, aesop rock's style is not for everyone, but when someone says that his verses are gibberish, they're simply proving their own inability to comprehend figurative speech. aesop uses metaphors constantly, and very little of what he says may be taken completely literally and this is where a lot of confusion comes in. casual hip hop listeners probably won't be interested in this album because it requires a little bit of effort from them to get the message. i'm not giving a full review of every aspect of the cd, i just wanted to clear up this little problem people seem to have with this album. and by the way, to say "mars attacks" has incomprehensible lyrics is one the dumbest things i've ever heard. i think somebody wasn't listening very closely. but that's alright, these songs are not the superficial top 40 hip pop types of songs you hear everyday. you're either able to strip away that first layer of discomfort and discover the deeper merits of it, or you can't. and say what you will about el-p and his label, but you can't deny the the fact that they are truly innovating, rather than allowing hip hop to become more and more of the same old mainstream wannabe dr. dre or tribe called quest tracks and lyrics.
def jukie for life. "please remember, that i can build you my friend and if i'm not happy i'll break you the f*ck down and build you again" -aesop himself
(on another note, why do so many rappers wear those gawdy ass chains? chains are for prisoners and/or slaves aren't they?)

I'm a fan. I personally dont think its as good as Halo Kibbles (No Regrets is an amazing song), but its still a great album. Aes-Rizzle is a genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different than Labor Days, but great in its own way.
