This album is the shit. Never saw this thread till today but been listening to it since the end of August and diggin it the whole time.

Never got into Aesop Rock until now, but I got some other albums but I haven't gotten around to listening to any aside from Bazooka Tooth. It's alright, but I'm not feeling it as much as None Shall Pass.

This album is cool but since discovering Labor Days, I do prefer that.

bazooka tooth was a pretty miserable attempt.
especially after labor days and the daylight EP

i've been listening to this album a LOT lately..pretty much just this and TBIG


this album is 10X beter than El-P's latest


i've been into Aesop since a rapper friend of mine introduced me to Labor Day when it came out

i've long forgotten about him even though I hear his name thrown around a lot

i'd even downloaded Bazooka Tooth a year or so ago but didn't get too into it


I found the video for 'None Shall Pass' on direct tv and was instantly hooked...such a great fucking song...i can listening to it non-stop


anyway...the entire album is dope

i think this puts him agongst the best of the best

the beats are all good...Blockhead's and Aesop's

perfect balance of samples,instruments, and synth


the lyrics are so good and his voice has never sounded this good


I downloaded Labor Day the other day and realized it is fucking amazing too...but i don't see how it can be much better than the new one


i'll have to give Bazooka Tooth another listen now but i am pretty sure i'll still rank it below LD and NSP

i brought out Bazooka Tooth out last night and it was easier to get into this time


i think the lyrics are as good as they are now but i think Aesop has improved the sound of his voice and his production since then

float has some KILLER tracks on it as well. big bang, for example. and, i think i like this album more, but el-ps was definitely better. els production is unmatched, plus all the guests he had made it real cool, and some of the songs didnt even feel like hip hop songs. its on another level. but NSP is a great hip hop album

i think the best thing is when el and aes are on the same track. run the numbers is my fav track on ISWYD and i really dig guns for the whole family. esp LIVE that shit was so dope. my wish is that one day el p produces a headbanger album and its a him and aes collab. they are one of the best duos is hip hop. (even though they techincally arent a duo)

He is coming to Australia in March for a Festival but I dont think he is doing a solo show, or one hasn't been announced yet which is dissapointing as I'm not going to the festival. Hopefully he will do a sydney solo show!
