  • Summary: El-P and Mr. Lif guest on Aesop Rock's second LP for the Def Jux label.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 16
  2. Negative: 1 out of 16
  1. It helps to enjoy Aesop's oscillating growl simply as an instrument, considering it may take months before his endless, seemingly im-parse-able, might-be metaphors start making sense.
  2. Regardless of his less than subtle studio technique, Bravitz remains one of the most resourceful and bracing artists in his field.
  3. 80
    [His] loquacious, dizzying delivery and disjointed imagery paired with the abstract soundscapes of [El-P and Blockhead] make for occasionally uneasy listening. [Nov 2003, p.108]
  4. It radiates with a confidence fuelled by acolytes and its fun is infectious. But... the angry cynicism coursing through the album creates a distance between its maker and the listener. [#237, p.53]
  5. 70
    Every time you think you've got to the bottom of a particular song, another layer of intrigue presents itself. [Oct 2003, p.118]
  6. He doesn't offer an alternative to mainstream rap so much as operate in another world altogether.
  7. Way too much of Bazooka Tooth is purely ego nonsense.
