steve: the beats suck, its like star wars or some shit

(ejects cd and puts in anti-flag)
If you're expecting rap about ladies ala Atmosphere and straight up beats with conventional samples and the same fucking snare pattern rappers have been using since 1983, then don't even listen to this shit. But if you want to listen to some rhymes with fucking amazing images, sweet hooks and futuristic backbeats, then pick it up. Bazookatooth isn't Aesop's best, though, and his LP Labor Days is probably the best one to pick up first. It's less noisy and the hooks are easier, although the lyrics are just as dense and poetic.
