okay, i can sense the people flying with responses bitching me out, but sorry, i don't like this album. it's not crap, but it's pretty close. given he is a genius lyricists i'll give you that, there was just something about this album i wasn't feeling. it didn't give me the energy i wanted. to me, it felt like he had something to say, but he didn't get across to me anyways. many underground heads would like this, but honestly, and cheifly, i'm sick and tired of it. there comes a limit in this genre and i can't take too much of it. aesop rock is raw, rugged, and heavy, and maybe he's too heavy. his lyrics are dope, they are sick and tight. it's his flow that pisses me off. i see you smiling saying "but that's what makes him good" ok, fine, that may be the case, but it's not for me. sorry. i recommend you borrow this one before you buy it.
