    I found Hail Mary Mallon bland as hell. Skelethon is dope though.

    Damn.. I just got done with this and I feel spoiled between this and Frank Ocean's album. Pretty good 24 hours of music for me.

    This is really my second favorite Aesop album next to None Shall Pass. It's really personal and dark.

    I like all of Aesop's albums, i don't really have favorite. I guess Labor Days if you forced me to pick one. But Skelethon is certainly the most polished.

    I don't know. I think this may be my favorite.

    His production, in particular, sounds incredibly dated these days. It hasn't held up too well over the years. This one is awesome because he showed me he could adjust to newer sounds all while keeping that classic Aesop aesthetic. And he flat out kills it.

    Also surprised/excited to see this thread getting so many positive responses. Where i come from nobody even knows who Aesop Rock is. Its a damn shame the best artists usually get the least notoriety. Maybe its for the best.

    I also think he has evolved very well as an artist. Unlike some of his work, I didn't feel like this was a lyrical barrage delivered straight from an acid trip. There is a clear and concise set of themes here.
