So much has been said already in these reviews, I just wanted to chip in with a few points I think need to be made.
There seem to be two camps of people writing here: those who want to dismiss the lyrics Aesop Rock writes as gibberish, and pretentious jerks who dismiss the former as just "not getting" the music. I fall somewhere in between I think; I enjoy the lyricism alot, but I would certainly not claim to fully comprehend the essense of every song. I like the wordplay and rhyme schemes alot, as well as the interesting images played on in the verses, and I think these, as well as the persuit of comprehension make Aesop Rock's music worth listening to.
As for the production, which many have griped about, I used to share this opinion, but after sitting down and cranking my speakers and listening to the whole album from beginning to end, I really started digging the beats. I had heard Labor Days before, and loved it, and my initial reaction to Bazooka Tooth was disappointment at the difference in production, but it grew on me. Seriously listen on a good sound system before you become judgemental.
I guess, in summation, I'd like to say that Bazooka Tooth is a great album, definitely worth picking up, but best listened to with an open mind, and LOUD.
