Complete your Aesop Rock collection. That’s when I knew that at some point between his 2011 album None Shall Pass and his newly released Skelethon, Aesop had finally snipped the final remaining threads that had been tying him to the fringes of rational thought. Either that, or he had just stopped trying to put his ideas into terms that were meant to be understood. We waited for a couple of hours to hear classics such as Night Light, Day Light, Big Bang, and No Regrets, but were given nothing but incomprehensible tracks off Skelethon. If Aesop had replaced BIG WIZ with a live band, the show would have been a huge success,.

Aesop Rock's sixth album, his first without any Blockhead beats or guest rappers, evokes the self-doubt, sleepless nights, and isolated focus required to finish something great. This is rap as Rorschach blot. Pick over Skelethon at your own peril. The portmanteau breaks down to the marathon of skeletons. 360 chambers of death, kid. Probably the most logical left turn for the Long Island-hatched rapper who warned "Abandon All Hope" on his first video: body splayed into a crucified scarecrow, blood and tar on the vocals, words loaned from the inscription above the Inferno. By 23, he'd died 1,000 Deaths and vowed to die a thousand more

Aesop Rock has announced the release of his upcoming album Skelethon, due July 10th via Rhymesayers Entertainment. The quick-tongued rapper’s new LP marks his first solo release since 2007’s None Shall Pass. The self-produced project will feature guest appearances from Kimya Dawson, Allyson Baker of Dirty Ghosts, Hanni El Khatib, Nicky Fleming-Yaryan, Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz and the Grimace Federation.

Aesop Rock is an American hip hop artist/producer, lauded for his unique approach to storytelling with dense and abstract word play, a style which all but revolutionized the world of independent hip hop. A follow up to his critically acclaimed album None Shall Pass, Aesop Rocks's 2012 album Skelethon not only sees the rapper back waxing poetically on his own but also marks his first wholly self-produced effort.

Ranicengi
I saw an Aesop concert last Friday night featuring two fat, hairy homeless emcees. I couldn’t really hear them over the sound of DJ BIG WIZ’s TURRIBLE scratching and mixing, but one of them sounded an awful lot like Aesop Rock. The other one, Rob Sonic, was the definition of #noswag, and I have no idea why Aesop brought him along for the ride.Halfway through the show they pulled a young woman with long blonde hair up on stage, then proceeded to shave half her head while chanting “It grows back…dude it grows back…it’s OK it grows back”. That’s when I knew that at some point between his 2011 album None Shall Pass and his newly released Skelethon, Aesop had finally snipped the final remaining threads that had been tying him to the fringes of rational thought. Either that, or he had just stopped trying to put his ideas into terms that were meant to be understood. We waited for a couple of hours to hear classics such as “Night Light”, “Day Light”, “Big Bang”, and “No Regrets”, but were given nothing but incomprehensible tracks off Skelethon. If Aesop had replaced BIG WIZ with a live band, the show would have been a huge success, because so many of the songs off Skelethon are fucking great. Aesop really needed a live drummer to do his newest tracks justice. The only thing that hits harder than his voice is the thundering, rolling sound of the percussion that staples his thoughts together.Anyways, I’ll leave his lyrics for you to decipher. They’re so delightfully vague that it would be a shame to try and jam them into a summary that couldn’t possibly fit them. He would love for us to believe that he’s crazy, but he leaves just enough sanity in his work so that we can’t write him off as a man without a message. He’s not crazy, but he’s getting there.keepinmusicclassy.com

I have been a massive fan of his for years. I have seen him live more times than I can count. Maybe you haven't actually kept up with his music and are still clinging to the old feelings and sounds of "Labor Days" and "Bazooka Tooth," and that's okay (I guess). But you can't go off on an artist who's continually made fantastic albums, albeit, different sounding than before, just because it wasnt that cookie cutter perfect night where they played all the classics. Also, Big Wiz and Rob Sonic are not new partners to him. Do your research. Every single time I have seen him perform (tiny>small>large>giant venues) it has been an insane amalgam of all of the things that all of us want to hear. Maybe you caught his gig on an off night, if so, I'm sorry for you. Otherwise try and at least get your dates right.

JUST DO IT
Racing Stripes is a funny song until you realize it was about Camu Tao losing his hair to the cancer that eventually killed him ("one day his didn't grow back"). Then it's a really really deep and poignant song about living your life to the fullest while you still have the chance.

Now, leaving irony / sarcasm aside, you do your alias wrong by writing such crass thoughts. For example, if you'd have read/watched your aesop interviews before and after the release of skelethon, you'd have had a minor glimpse into what the man was trying to convey on the said album. That should clear any smoke over the lyrics part. Secondly, artists evolve over time, you know? Like kids that become adults or trees that grow or a square becoming a circle. How can you expect this guy, who has been putting out music for the last 15something years, to come and play some tunes which he probably figured out that any audience at his shows knows by now and...why? Where would be the fun in that? Everybody has playlists in their players of choice.. You said they cut out some hair off of a young woman. I assume that would be at the beginning or in the middle of Racing Stripes. You should listen to it, it's a very funny song. As for the live band part, i don't see him do it. Sonic is a good voiceover/backup and Wiz has his shit covered. 2 emcees and one dj, what more could you want at a rap show? #yolo

jzaqI can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not.Agree with jzaq.None Shall Pass was not released in 2011. (It was 2007. You can check right here in this very website!) I have trouble accepting anything else written here just because of this error.A review of one show has no place in an album review.
