I legally changed my last name to the title of this song. On its own, this song is amazing. In Labor Days, it raises the concept of that album to another level. There is a reason it follows "Coma" on the album...you would have need to heard "Coma" to really understand parts of this song...but yea, its amazing.
Best Aesop Song Ever |
The title says it all, this is by far the best song on "Labor Days". The images are segregated from one another on the surface, but connect on a deeper emotional level.
There's something about this song that screams "unworthiness" for something (love,heaven,friendship,mother) and yet there's an element of clarity and understanding that transcends this depression and gives the listener hope.
Dopest lyricist ever. The symbolism is incredible. Labor Days is a bonified classic. People hate on this dude because they don't understand his shit or like his flow (flow's sick BTW). I don't know it's *real* meaning, but I *understand* and *relate* to it. His lyrics are so open to interpretation, it's, for lack of a better word, DOPE.
illusion of depression |
it's like, Aesop gives everyone such a drastic portrait of the many aspects of life. i have suvere depression and it's hard to explain- i feel isolated from everyone but when i listen to this, it for some reason gives me hope, it's like he talks so much of how i feel that i don't feel alone, that i feel connected to someone with the same problems- past or current.
aesop delivers |
aesop rock delivers a touching
vivid poem that while its real meaning like many of his songs is difficult to grasp he paints an incredible canvas of words and phrases that alights the mind and gives a good feeling of alienation
