Kelly Rankin says:

Strong 7? Light 8? Ugh..10/10 to me. Best work he’s done.

hal says:

Gopher guts has such a sick beat

funknotik says:

His lyrics are very dense, but when you finally understand them (after several listens) they are really relate able and very human.

Seth Wegener says:

My interpretation of ‘Homemade Mummy’ is really more of a mantra than a shocker. The real center of the song is chorus “Take the brain out, Leave the heart in”, (which, as someone who overthinks everything, I find liberating & invigorating). All the verses about dissecting a dead cat and dagwood sandwiches just exist to support & frame that simple message in one way or another.

Quick TheDJ says:

float definitely was acceptable faster than none shall pass but like dude said it’s acquired and addictive.

ruby anahi says:

Do a review of his new album, The Impossible Kid, please!

JTNugget says:

This channel was more watchable, and the comments were way more readable in 2012. 2017 sucked.

“Racing Stripes” is actually about his late best friend, Camu Tao, who always had an eccentric haircut.

honk honkers says:

I thought Skelethon was a very good album all the way through. It takes a couple listens to
through to actually get a grasp on his lyrics in the songs but most of the songs on this album are very just very good. The opener is one of my favourites. And ZZZ Top’s amazing drum track and genius lyrical setup. I absolutely love Ruby 81. Its just strong and breathtaking. Its dark, easy to follow, and eerie. I might need to listen to Racing Stripes some more because thats really the only song I didnt so much enjoy that much. All in all, I think Skelethon is one of Aesop’s best albums. The whole thing through is just an amazing 45 minute album with great instrumentals and intelligent lyrical word play. Id give it an 8.5. Although, nothing really compared to Labor Days and None Shall Pass is just a masterpiece.

Liam D says:

I fuck with The Impossible Kid but this album was just meh to me.

Miguel Soto-Rios says:

can you review eyedea and abilities albums? please and thanks

Makaveli the Don #2pac #VacationInCuba says:
