Preaching to the choir.There are those for whom a new Aesop Rock album is a trudge through rapís abstract backwaters. For others itís Christmas come early, and None Shall Pass wonít disappoint his fervent admirers. Lyrically thereís enough to feast on for a year, the relocated New Yorker (now a San Francisco resident) painting typically dense and cryptic life portraits both specific and universal, while Gun For The Whole Family satirises all-American consumerism. But his robotic flow and the generally funkless beats make this a hard slog for all but the most committed.
Aesop Rock Ė None Shall Pass, released 27 August on Definitive Jux.
