Aesop expands a little on Labor days, and leans more towards his Bazooka tooth, electronic side. Buy this if you like labor days/float and want a little more. The Daylight/Night Light concept is great.

this man has been at his game for awhile, and it shows. for all the real heads out there this is a household name, no matter what coast your on, or land locked for that matter. support REAL hip hop, as it slowly turns back to it's artistic roots. Daylight, imo, is Aesop and Blockhead in there finest form. don't sleep, FEED YOUR BRAIN!

Well okay I like the cd but when it comes to listening to it all the time,. No ! Number one is my favorite for the beat they have in the back.

If you have any appreciation for hip hop, you will notice that Aesop Rock can spit a crazy complicated rap effortlessly. He has a style that stands far away from anyone I have ever heard and probably ever will hear. Every once in a while, he seems to extend a line far longer than the one before. All throughout, he escapes having an obvious pattern to anything. This is not hip-hop-by-numbers.
In addition to his outstanding and distinctive flow, he has perfectly meaningless lyrics, giving him the voice of a cynical narrator to contemporary culture. He'll plow through lines so strangely that you'll only be able to pick up bits and pieces of his words. What you will pick up will usually be something strange and funny like "this origami dream is beutiful but man those wings will never leave the ground without a feather and a lottery ticket now settle down."
What I like about this EP specifically is that it has some El-P production on it. Also, Blueprint is good on "Alchemy."

To head off any conclusion you might be (understandably) jumping to, let me clarify: Ace Rock is not a plagiarist. Ace Rock is one of the greatest artists working in Hip Hop today, and (hopefully) he'll only get better. It's just an EP, so it's not quite up to par with one of his full-lengths (which you shoud definitely pick up).
Anyway, unless the esteemed reviewer who refers to himself as "Pike" works for pitchforkmedia.com, he's plagiarizing pitchfork reviewer Nitsuh Abebe's review on Aesop's "Labor Days" album. You can probably spot it where a bad review suddenly turns into a good review. Here's the stolen material:
"That last line's from "Save Yourself," which collects Ace's comments on the How We Do Hip-Hop question-- he's undie, of course, here with his sonically progressive Def Jux release, so clearly he's going to drop some invective on this Important Issue. His take, though? Forget it: "Maybe you ought to try saving something other than hip-hop," insightful advice no matter what genre you insert at the end. "Pistons pump perfect," he says, then, "what you're holding ain't really broken." And for the duration of Labor Days, it's pretty clear that in the hands of someone with something to use it for, it's not, not at all."
If you can't write your own review, then don't.

"Daylight," Labor Days' initial standout, works from a long, plush melodic loop with a wood flute sighing over it Ace's message is that life can be hard but that's all the more reason to shut your mouth and work on something that makes you happy. Essentially. That last line's from "Save Yourself," (from Labor days) which collects Ace's comments on the How We Do Hip-Hop question-- he's undie, of course, here with his sonically progressive Def Jux releases, so clearly he's going to drop some invective on this Important Issue. His take, though? Forget it: "Maybe you ought to try saving something other than hip-hop," insightful advice no matter what genre you insert at the end. "Pistons pump perfect," he says, then, "what you're holding ain't really broken." And for the duration of Labor Days and Daylight EP, it's pretty clear that in the hands of someone with something to use it for, it's not, not at all.
