to me it sounds like he has more of a voice



I fear his next release is going to be his blandest yet, signing with rhymesayers will do that.

his verse starts at like 1:08 and its real dense and angsty and anti-establishment which is why its nice to me

Madvillainy is a perfectly fine choice. Third for me.

Hmm... Patti Smith has a new song out called Amerigo. Popular all of a sudden...

I think its mad to say Bazooka Tooth and None Shall Pass are anywhere but the bottom two. I'd rather listen to Appleseed than None Shall Pass.

1. Labor Days
2. Music For Earthworms
3. Float
4. Bazooka Tooth
5. Appleseed
6. None Shall Pass
7. Fast Cars, Danger, Fire, and Knives

and I think Skelethon will probably start at number 3 and either go down to 4, or up to 2.

In order of amount of tracks listened to per album, though:

Bazooka Tooth (509)
Labor Days (504)
Appleseed (411)
None Shall Pass (383)
Music For Earthworms (368)
Unreleased Comps./Singles (300)
Float (236)
Fast Cars (171)

For Death Grips fans, see if you like this. It's small time, but that's the great thing about the way things are evolving.

labor days
I love Float, Bazooka Tooth (which for some silly reason people don't seem to even like), and None Shall Pass, but Labor Days is probably the best. Its definitely at least as good as the other 3. And as for 'concept album' - did you read that on wikipedia? I think I missed the concept.

I always felt that Bazooka Tooth is at least as conceptual - the concept being the life of a nerdy kid with with bad teeth who grew up in Brooklyn back when white people generally didn't live there. I could be totally wrong about that of course. Except for the bad teeth part.

I just always assumed it was a concept album about the rigor and lifelessness of typical working conditions. It melds with some ethereal aesop rock-y perceptions of life but i thought it was all still glued together by the notion that working sucks.

I don't remember the last time i listened to the record but i listened to it a lot.

I like bazooka tooth and agree with your interpretation. It seems more like float. Aesop isn't comfortable, he's stuck in a a society, specifically NY, where babies have guns and cling on to outdated hip hop symbolism, as well as some typical big brother future dystopian stuff. Aesop consumes a lot of psychedelics and tries to balance his "care free"adolescent life with the looming knowledge that its going to not exist very soon.
