Aesop Rock All Day: Nike + Original Run
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Nike
Aesop Rock built this 45-minute track to entertain joggers and inspire them to buy lots and lots of Nikes. The track has most of the right elements, but the potholes tend to wear out the music's momentum. Aesop hires an acid-rock band to play some downer blues, and there are moments when everything clicks, but his stress-rap rhymes are too fragmented and he overindulges in bugged-out synth wanks. This iTunes exclusive serves as better listening for the couch during drowsy, unemployed days than it does a morning run.
