Somewhat a let down
on 30 September 2002
I was expecting much from this release, maybe too much after recently having listened to RJD2's stunning "deadringer" and el-p's equally competant debut; the man can do little wrong it seems.
The production is generally tight, producing some dope beats, only to be let down by aesop's rapping, which i find hard to tolerate. I would have given the album more were it not for his annoying tone and deliverance - maybe it is just me, but aesop just ain't up to def jux standard.
Have a listen beforehand if you can, his rhyming will either excite you or annoy you...if you like it, then you're sure to love it!
