    Product Details

    Summary

    Created over a 2 year period following his last release, None Shall Pass unravels retrospectively, documenting not only much personal change Aesop experienced over these years, but also scenes and stories indicative of all ages of life. This album touches on the experiences all humans encounter as they reach the age of adulthood: being judged independently, moving to a new place, the relationships that one builds with others no matter how big or small. Snapshots of life from all viewpoints are brought to the forefront here; "39 Thieves" tells the tale of high school mischief, "The Harbor is Yours" embodies the viewpoint of a children's story, "Fumes" examines the ever too common story of relationships gone sour due to drug abuse. Forgoing the typical stance of braggadocio everpresent in underground and mainstream hip-hop alike, Aesop Rock investigates and examines himself and others on this album, likening the title phrase to the inevitable judgment that everyone must encounter by their peers based solely on their actions.
    Production on None Shall Pass also is a vital strong point, with the majority of production duties handled by Aesop's longtime partner Blockhead, labelmate and friend Rob Sonic and Aesop confidently producing a large portion of his own tracks, not including a trademark dystopian banger by Def Jux label-head El-P ("Gun For The Whole Family") and features the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle on the album closer "Coffee". DJ Big Wiz also has a large presence on the album, appearing on 13 out of 14 tracks and offering a devastating rebuttal to those that say the art of scratching is dead. The duality of Aesop's hectic stream-of-thought coupled with the complex production on this album makes no exception to Aesop Rock's consistent pedigree, blazing a trail far ahead of his peers with an album that will be followed for years to come.

    Comment: Great album. Although I felt as if some tracks had long intros and knew some people would skip it. Which I did myself once or twice. I would give it 5/5 if it would include his best song of late, "Tomorrow Morning". That is a must have.

    Comment: i like this new album because the production meshes well with what I believe is a gradual return to the "Float" aesop that made me a fan to begin with.

    Comment: First off, the beats on this album are TIGHT, it's not just the single that bumps. Second, this feels like a real album, which is not true for all hip hop albums; this is a finished product, not a demo-sounding CD with 5 guests on each track.
