1.5 very poorSobhi Youssef EMERITUS | April 21st 09

Mario Kart, munchies, Madden, suburbs, Sublime-posturing, pre-pubescent socio-political musings… Asleep in the Bread Aisle has all the ingredients for anthemic frat-party bro-hop. Raised in the suburbs (the far-outlying suburbs to be precise) of Philadelphia, Asher Roth paints a picture one would expect from homogeneous experiences and a biblically allusive name. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, especially when delving into the metaphysical or even the mildly interesting. Even then, some artists excel at making light, care-free party music – see pre-808’s/ Louis Vitton Kanye for a good example. The thing is, Roth tries to do both here – but is by no means a renaissance man; instead, he recreates the very essence of Wonderbread through music.

It's nothing too bad or nothing too great. He has a decent flow and the instrumentations competent. Nothing I'd rush back to listen to though, okay for a casual listen on the bus or train now and again.

3.0 goodCracker Jack | October 13th 09

As a frat boy with a part time job that involves rapping over used beats, Asher Roth takes his job not very seriously, and it clearly shows on “I Love College”. His music is very superficial in the way that it is very shallow and not hard at all to understand and get, which is good for the casual music listener. Honestly, anyone who rates this based on how lyrical it is, than they should have their brain checked out. I mean, sometimes even his flow manages to bore like on “Blunt Cruising” and “She Don’t Wanna Man”, but mostly this is a fun-filled poppy rap album for buzzed out college dudes with beats and flows that manage to keep listeners entertained, just don’t look for depth.

Lol you guys are going way too hard on this. I'd give it a 3-3.5, but I gotta make up for all the people that call it awful before even hearing it. That's just stupid.
Was every track on Tha Carter III like Lollipop? No. The same applies to this and I Love College.
Review had some really, really good points. IMO, I love most of the production, and versatility in the lyricism and subject matter adds to the depth. Sometimes it comes off like a marketing tool, though, and the rhyming gets a little lazy. I liked Greenhouse effect better, but I'll take this over 95% of the major label shit that's out today.
