Performer Notes
  • San Francisco MC Aesop Rock has long been the acknowledged king of hipster-hop, bringing to the game a cerebral, often ironic lyrical sensibility and a taste for adventurous production. Long Island-born AR (born Ian Bavitz) has a lifetime of personal issues and sociopolitical preoccupations banging around in his brain, and he continues to air them on NONE SHALL PASS, his fifth full-length release. Aesop's knack for getting polysyllabic while maintaining an organic flow is in full effect here: how many other rappers can make "Helvetica" and "euthanasia" fall trippingly off the tongue? Backing it all up with tracks that mix '70s funk, IDM-style electronica, left-field psychedelia, and classic West Coast beats, Aesop Rock (with guest shots from pals El-P and the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle) proves that there are still fresh approaches available to rappers with a searching spirit.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.93) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Indie rap's wordiest wordsmith unleashes another dose of dense, hyper-enunciated rhymes filled with poetic imagery."

Spin (p.122) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] challenging, rewarding head trip. 'Fumes' and '39 Thieves' are classic Def Jux..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.65) - "His dazzling verbal pointillism resolves into clever rants and full-blown stories." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.101) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Long Island-born Ian Bavitz here delivers some typically extravagant wordplay. There's smart production, too..."

Alternative Press (p.170) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "On NONE SHALL PASS, the entry point is classic hip-hop....It peaks on 'Coffee,' a wonderfully weird, ska-tinged duet..."

The Wire (p.65) - "[With] free associative existential riffs, surreal suburban imagery and winding accounts of decay....NONE SHALL PASS might be his best work since LABOR DAYS."

Vibe (p.130) - "[H]is fourth album is as dense as ever....His paragraphs are still wound tight with near metaphors and dissociative imagery..."
