"Push that button, everybody gotta push somethin', that's why the envelope was where it was," tosses off Aesop Rock at a 600-BPM-pace in his slithering, sidewinding New Yawk-accented flow during the frenzied lyrical autobahn ride of Zodiaccupuncture, one of seven blazing tracks on his new EP joint. The line is typical of Rock - since dropping Labour Days, he's always had a mealy-mouthed brilliance about him, spitting out opaque zingers so quickly and densely that you could only hope to absorb them all after dozens of spins. But now this album comes with a glossed-out 88-page book containing every word he's ever committed to the mic (though www. ohhla.com will give them to you free). The book is apt - it's the MC's word power that takes this record to such great heights, though Blockhead and Aesop's industrial Blade Runner-era beats don't hurt the product a bit.
