    Just as the two's previous solo projects, the music will probably not sit well with most hip-hop heads, but it's the perfect LP for each of their respective fan base.
  2. Lyrically, Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic have never been stronger, and they play off each other with a unique composure that's rare nowadays. The production from track to track varies enough to keep things interesting, but it unfortunately begins to bleed together after multiple listens. Still, Are You Gonna Eat That? is an amazing return to the scene for both artists.

    Hail Mary Mallon gives us one of the better independent albums released of the year. The artists' ability to have fun, while weaving a complex and serious narrative is the thing that only seasoned lyricists could pull off.

    These guys may not be back in their ambition-heavy fighting form on Are You Gonna Eat That?, but they're back to rapping just for the fuck of it, and that can be a beautiful thing to hear. And hearing the album, it's immediately apparent that Aesop is still a major talent, someone who can do whatever the hell he wants and get away with it.

    Long on spirit and short on hooks, it's an album whose main appeal is that it offers the listener a window into what one assumes musicians do for fun when no one else is around. [Jul 2011, p.91]
