you either love aesop or hate him

ns3456

i hate him, he has no flow, he sounds like a broken speak & spell, and his voice, sorry to say, is just plain obnoxious. but friends who like this cat have sworn by his "lyrical genius", so i guess its for some. personally he sounds like he's trying too hard to be weird.

OVER RATED

emceesquare

I'm sorry, I had this album a while back and got rid of it immediately..anytime I ask a true "fan" of aesops..what is Aesop talking about? they never have an answer..you can even read this guys rhymes in some of the linear notes of the cds.. But guess what, rapping and talking about nothing apparently gets you crazy popularity.

Shit's Decent

At first i did not like this album. But it will grow on you. soon you will find yourself quietly repeating "Mars Wins Mars Wins Mars Wins". The beats are experimental and sometimes really out-there. But you will probably realize that it really works. It's not an album that gives you a gratifying first listen, but every other time you spin it gratifies you more and more. If i were you, I'd get this.

This is one of those albums that I wish I could buy again and hear for the first time... but then again, my brain is able to process slightly unconventional, "off-kilter" beat patterns.

Surprisingly HORRIBLE

Pikg

Considering the wild praise this has received from sources far and wide (blah blah blah) it is surprisingly and truly horrible. The problem here is quite simple: 9 out of 10 beats are so off kilter that it disrupts and ruins tune after tune after tune. Dear Friends: Hip Hop, no matter how "experimental", MUST have coherent beats... S-O-R-R-Y to the true believers.... this doesn't work at all.

Genius.

I could not disagree more with the statement in the Emusic review above that this album "pushes too far." Bazooka Tooth is an incredible masterpiece of production and poetic lyricism. It is an incredibly challenging album for the listener, and I can understand how many may not enjoy its dense lyrics and distinct production styles. It took me a couple of listens to really dig in and understand what Ace Rock was trying to accomplish with the album. Without delving into the themes of it and other various specifics, I will say this: If you really want to hear something different, something that pushes the envelope in the hip hop world, something that requires your attention and you to use your brain... THIS IS AN ALBUM THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

not a review as such

bigblueengine

just a quick couple of comments, firstly, if you like hip-hop you'll already know that most everything on Def Jux is essential. Secondly, why is loads of this stuff credited to various artists instead of the artists themselves, this is an Aesop Rock album, it'll be a bugger to find these albums on an artists search alone credited as they are, someone here take note and sort it out!!

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

On September 7th, a federal appeals court in Cincinnati, Ohio, all but closed the book on sampling in hip-hop. A three-judge panel ruled that recent federal laws pertaining to the piracy of digital recordings also apply to the recycling of old songs by producers. Deviating from previous agreements that set up limits and tests for "legal" usages, the new decision aims to tighten the clamps on all lengths and types of samples, from entire riffs… more »

Few labels in the rap underground boast the profile of Definitive Jux, and few rappers on Def Jux match the talents of Aesop Rock. So his second record for the label came with great expectations, engendered by the success of 2001′s Labor Days, which catapulted him into the first rank of hip-hop voices. As far as the expectations go, Bazooka Tooth delivers on most of its promise. The beats are dense and the bass-lines dark, like street-level rap is supposed to be, with a jumble of murky samples and angled effects coming from every direction. And Ace Rock’s lurching, nasally flow and obscurist rhymes may not carry every lyric across, but do allow listeners to marvel at the few legible lines. With most of the productions coming from Aesop himself (along with Def Jux mainstay Nasa), Bazooka Tooth lacks the catchy, sample-driven flavor of Labor Days, but does set a standard for basement-level beats, with some of the best hashed-and-screwed productions heard on Def Jux since the Cannibal Ox masterpiece The Cold Vein. Bronx bombers Camp Lo stop by for an old-school horrorcore jam named “Limelighters,” Def Jux head El-P guests on a no-biters track called “We’re Famous,” and Mr. Lif appears on the highlight, the tag-team rhyme manifesto “11:35.” The album does, however, reveal a few problems endemic to independent rap in general as well as the Def Jux label and Aesop Rock specifically: to get and keep the respect of the underground, an artist is forced to push his sound farther, but it soon reveals a trap — no production can be too difficult, no variation in flow too off-kilter, no topics or rhymes too bizarre in order to keep heads nodding. Bazooka Tooth simply pushes too far. – John Bush
