Seeing as Aesop Rock was at the forefront of the rise of underground hip-hop in the late '90's makes it an event, for anybody who's been following the scene, whenever he releases a new record.
2012's Skelethon is an angry, lash back at at all the problems A-Rock faced over the past few years, which would explain the sudden lyrical obsession with death. The production is heavy on riotous drum rhythms, fuzzy guitar work and industrial synth-drones possibly to counter-balance the exposed vulnerability A-Rock is feeling on this album. Not his best album but still a confirmation that Aesop Rock remains one of the best in his genre.
