3.0 out of 5 stars Early and Wordy July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
If he'd pull that thesaurus out of his rear, I'd play his albums a bit more, but then he wouldn't really be Aesop. So, hey, you want grooves, you know where you can find Ja Rule. This here's strictly talk, and talk of the thoughtful bent, as interested (at least surface wise) in classical mythology as with the pregnant lady outside his wondow who's about to pop. And he's white, which I probably wouldn't have known without the web site, and you might not have either. Horrible background music, and on that I approve, but exhaustive foreground music, too, without enough sonic risks to carry the tracks along when you mentally filter out his recitations, which happens periodically. I understand that he's since improved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aesop's Best June 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Though its a close one between Labor days and Float, Float comes out victorious. One of the best underground lyrical albums in a long time, Aesop effortlessly spits intelligence over interesting beats. Definitly worth picking up all you hip hop heads out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album June 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you looking for some of Aesop's earlier works - you've found it and you'll love it. As with all of his work, Aesop comes with great lyrics and produces most of his beats.
Aesop is a genius.

Also, there are great guest appearances by:
(Track 5) Slug (of Atmosphere)
(Track 14) Vast Aire (1/2 of Cannibal Oxe)
(Track 18) Doesone
The beats aren't the best that Aesop is capable of [and FYI when I say Aesop I am referring to Aesop Rock b/c there is another Aesop (no Rock though)who is part of the Living Legends], but how can you down a guy whose album is composed of 90% of his own beats.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Illest on the planet Feb. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aesop is seemingly unstoppable. Contrasted with the lushness and cohesion of labor days, float is a much more stripped down, minimal album. Here the focus is completely on the lyrical content, and it is safe to say that Aesop would still be twice as interesting as any other MC even without beats. Buy this.
