I was pretty impressed by this album. It definately gets better with a few listens.

Also, although I'm not usually a big Aesop Rock fan, I have to admit that "Poems for Post-Modern Decay" is a very nice track, probably a 5/5, maybe the best on the album.

On some who the fuck made you King?

This album was decent. I was expecting more out of it, but cant complain too much. I doubt they will be able to top DWSv2.0, so it is unfair for me to hold them to crazy standards. But they do their thing. I pre-ordered this album from The Giant Peach and ended up getting an autographed copy by both Zion and Amp, so that was dopeness.

3.5/5

I honestly thin this is better than DWS (Mind Over Matter is better than DWS as well).

4/5

The production levels on DWSv2.0 are much higher quality than anything I've heard on

Curb Servin
Politicks
Family Business- except that Lyrics Born Silly Puddy Remix- wow!
True & Livin

Mind Over Matter is dope, by far the closest, but I think all of them pale to DWSv2.0

The beats are just too damn ill.

have the cd

listened to it once

never really got myself into Zion i before so maybe thats why i didint keep it in my cd player.

i expect i'll get around to give this a 2nd chance and i'll probably feel their sound more once i sift through all the other minimally listened to albums that are sitting on my shelf. they've got something different to offer most definately so i doubt it'll be the last time i give it a listen.
