Very few people have any grounds for criticizing Aseop Rock's rapping. He is an artist in the truest sense of the word; his style is so perfectly and consistently realized on this album that taking fault with the sound of his voice or the quality of his beats is stupid. It will take you several listens to even begin to get into some of the incredibly crafted metaphors this guy spits at such an incredible pace.
But I do have to complain about some of the production. Some of the beats Aesop Rock does himself are little more than functional. They are all pretty understated, and some of them (Spare a Match, Big Bang, blockhead's interludes) are great. But the best songs on the album are ones like Basic Cable, Commencement, and Oxygen, where the astonishing and engrossing mic work makes it so that you won't notice the beat at all. Especially Basic Cable, which is deep and easy to relate to at the same time, and may be the best one on the album.
So to recap, if you're like that reviewer everybody else is complaining about, keep listening to above average rappers like Nas and Jay-Z and don't bother with anything deeper or underground, which is NOT ABOUT THE IMAGE but about the art instead. But if you like music that has an aesthetic reason for existing, then get into Aesop Rock (maybe his later stuff which has better beats) and other people on Def Jux.

First and foremost, Aesop Rock is one of the most skilled songwriters period, hip hop or not, he is a genius. Beside that, he can rap like nobody else, he has mad talent. Each track on this album has obviously been completely thought through and exceptionally produced. Each track is unique, and each track is beautiful.
Deathguise has no authority writing a review for this album. He Obviously doesn't know anything about hip hop. How is someone from Kinston NC gonna tell a veteran MC from F###ing New York that his rap is for suburban richboys? How can someone who gave Beyonce's garbage four stars tell AesRock fans that they "dont know sh**"? How can he call himself a true hip-hop head while classifying true underground hip-hop as "a cross between metal and soft rock". He obviously doesn't know anything about anything. Get your sorry a## out of corporate mass produced garbage and wake up, if there is such a thing as nerd rap Aesop doen't have any near qualifications to be part of it, And shut your ignorant stupid a## up, you dumb motherf###er.

Comparing AesopRock with the likes of Biggie, Rakim, KRS-One is not really making sense, not trying to be dissin' these "Heavyweights", when it comes to Lyrical content, Skills, flow and literacy Aesop is a Million Lightyears ahead besides these "mc's" are mainstream. This album is an epitomy of what indie/underground HipHop is and should be like, less focus on rhythmic beats and more attention on lyrical substance, This album is definitely one of my best I've imported thus far, an undisputed 5 star. I'ts really difficult to conjure up words to describe this masterpiece. If anyone ever said this album lacks imagination I'd buy a first classs flight ticket to the US and laugh at his/her face then fly back home happily knowing justice has been served. Best songs for me are "Commencement at the Obedience Academy" "Big Bang" "Basic Cable" "Fascination" "Oxygen" "Spare a Match" and "Attention Spare" /w Vast Aire to mention but a few. You can't be a "Super-human-hip-hop-head" if you don't cap this album. I live in South Africa and I went through a lot of trouble trying to get hold of this album. This should be a good enough reason. This album alone (My honest Opinion) catapulted AesopRock to where he is. Don't sleep on this MC. "Carelesly Cavorting" - Peace to all the heads around th World

Aesop Rock is one of the best and most creative emcees I have ever heard. Float is my favorite Aesop Rock album and one of my favorite hip-hop albums of all time. I initially did not like the album because it was pretty different than other hip-hop albums that I had heard at the time. This album got me interested in underground hip-hop. The more I listened to Float the more I liked it. There are a lot of intricacies and subtleties in the way Aesop rhymes that take a while to get used to and have sink in. Every time I hear this album I pick up new meanings and get different ideas on the lyrics. All of the songs on the album are interesting and most are really good. Basic Cable is my favorite song of his on any of his albums. It's about how Aesop hates that he loves television. Other excellent songs are Fascination, How to be a Carpenter and Garbage. The beats are good for this album; they are minimalist and don't get in the way of the lyrics. There are also three short instrumentals that are really good. I think that Blockhead who is Aesop's producer is great. Aesop has some of the most unusual wordplay, metaphors and rhyming in his songs like "The ritual goes same window different visual" which is about television, comparing the TV screen to a window. Parts of this album that stick in my head are: "Let a once divine soul feel the functions of the hypnotist; it's ridiculous, the viciousness, peaking a dummies interest." about television in Basic Cable. "Everything I do, I'm fascinated with.", "He's just jealous 'cause my shadow has more dimensions than his game plan." in Fascination and "The model to the prison is an accurate portrayal of inadequate betrayal." and "I was riding on the yellow bus to where the brush thickens, but it ain't exactly plush pickens.". Labor Days and Daylight are also really good albums by Aesop Rock.
