Down from a huntable surplus to one.,
This review is from: Skelethon (Audio CD)
To my ears, this has to be the best thing I've heard for some time, both lyrically, and musically.... A less densely produced sound, that breathes new life into his always stunning lyrics, lighter, funkier more syncopated... poetic beats indeed.
I've always liked Aesop, his albums are dense, layered affairs, this time however, I love Skelethon, there's not a dud track on there, and it's been on repeat for months in my headphones.
It would be an insult to just call this a rap album, it's more, much, much more, it share's kinship with Tom Waits and the beat poets, as much as it does with anything labelled rap.
Skelethon is a great album.
