CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Drowned in Sound

Aesop Rock's recent turmoil is very much our gain.

85
The 405

Aesop Rock really brings you a very strange album that will totally keep you on your toes as you never know where he plans to take the song next.

82
Pitchfork

Skelethon reveals how far Rock's come since the Bazooka Tooth-era, when his beats largely lacked swing and he hadn't yet fully synthesized El-P's industrial influence.

80
Consequence of Sound

Aesop Rock gets a little personal, a little confessional even, and knocks out one of his best albums to date.

75
Paste

The record lives with angst, melancholy and a macabre grimness—probably the most focused Aes has ever sounded.

This album feels a lot older than it is.
I remember smoking outside in my old backyard with the speakers pressed up against the screen of the window... Good times.

85
From the introspective "Gopher Guts" to the angst-filled rant of "Zero Dark Thirty" and back to the playful, humorous "Grace," Aes' Skelethon is an effective milestone in the career of an enigmatic poet.

79
Complimentary production style was implemented into this record to Aesop's flow and sometimes hard to follow lyricism, providing potentially more non-followers of Aesop to start taking notice.
