    This is the best Aesop Rock album, bar none with no par. The intricate rhyme scheme is what first caught my attention, then as I began to listen more and more and sink deeper into the lyrics, I became mesmerized by the depth and complexity of what he's saying. Aesop Rock has a style all his own, you won't ever listen to any other hip-hop artist doing things quite the same. Full Review »

    A beautifully complex and lyrically dense album, quite possibly Aesop Rock's best work. Each track is a distinct, captivating riff off of the album's main theme. Full Review »
