Sturdy bridges, decorated with dirty pigeons, a vagabond beggin' for three pennies and a princess, a junky tourniquet surgeon urgin' the needle in, a batty senior citizen flashin' that awful teethless grin.

Aesop Rock might just be the best rapper of all time. Best producer? Probably not. And indeed, the production is the only reason this album isn't a five-star classic, often feeling too thin and monotonous for such a layered and colorful rapper. But as a lyricist, Aes is indescribable. It takes someone incredible to outdo talents like Slug, Vast Aire, and Doseone, but Aesop Rock does it without a hitch. His metaphors are absurdly layered, and every song takes lots of listens to appreciate. He's certainly an acquired taste, and it can be a frustrating to have listened to a song a dozen times and still not understand it. But the moments when you get a breakthrough - when the topic of the song finally clicks, or when an especially clever metaphor falls into place - are completely worth it. Indeed, the obscurity of Aes' lyrics give this album more replay value than nearly anything else I can think of. What other musician lets you gain something completely new with every additional listen? What other lyricist feels fresher with each re-listen, rather than the reverse? Aes's insights on the hip-hop industry, the nature of New York City, and the capitalist hell in which we all waste away are indispensable. There are lots of obscure rappers out there, but Aes stands out among them because he uses that obscurity to enhance what he has to say, rather than hide it. Indeed, his messages are often so complex that it's almost hard to imagine another way of putting them. As I said at the beginning of this review, the beats are weaker than they should be - both Aes and Blockhead would improve as producers through their careers, and their later projects (Aes' recent self-produced albums and Blockhead's work with rappers like Billy Woods) are more layered, emotional, and interesting than the rather drab beats that we get here. But the production isn't bad or anything - in fact, there are some good musical ideas here, and other than the title track, it's interesting enough to listen to. But Aes' lyrics would've outshone any beats you give him, and so that's the element I focus on. I can only think of a few rappers throughout hip-hop's history who come close to Aes' level - sometimes Open Mike Eagle and Busdriver, and very occasionally El-P and Lupe Fiasco. Other than that, there's nowhere else you can get this level of complexity, insight, and originality.
