  1. Listen to the guest performances if you dare; just tune out the pedestrian rapping.
  2. Asleep in the Bread Aisle is a piece of Dubble Bubble that loses its flavor before you’re done reading the comic.
  3. Asleep feels less like an album of music meant to entertain than an assumption that you can actually bump a marketing plan in your cars and house parties.

    This CD is terrible. He rhymes a bunch of random things together that makes absolutely no sense at all. He doesn't sing or rap, he just talks to terrible "beats". No talent at all. Most of all, he has no flow or rhythm. Full Review »

Was hoping for some higher named features[kanye? pharrell?]. You can hear his appreciation for the music witch I admire[His Dream/The Reading] Has a good live concert vibe to a lot of them [She Don Full Review »

    I have mad respect for Asher Roth. The Greenhouse Effect, Seared Foie Gras and Pabst & Jazz are all classics in my book. And asleep in the bread aisle does not show Asher's ability at all. As I Em, Lark on my Go Kart, and Fallin are my faves. Full Review »
