“All great truths begin as blasphemies,” proclaimed the fiery playwright George Bernard Shaw. It’s a sentiment that can be applied exponentially to the works of rapper Sage Francis and his exhilarating new album Li(f)e. Francis has never been afraid to provoke. As a result he is a sometimes polarizing and increasingly important figure in modern music. Adored by many, reviled ... Read more in Amazon's Sage Francis Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The Way Forward 19 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album, as well as his first album Personal Journals, has changed my life. I can't listen to any hip-hop song without comparing it to those of this album and they usually turn out to be on top.
Tracks such as 'Sea Lion' offer you such interesting and unusual beats and lyrics that its hard not wanting to listen to it again as soon as its finished. 'Bridle' is written in pure poetry. Sage's voice acts more as an instrument in this song than anyhting else as his lyrics and beats meld together to give an amazing listening experience.
I would recommend this album to anyone who wants to try something new and 'underground'. The album sits comfortably right next to my hifi and will probably do so for a very long time.
In conclusion: great beats, great rhymes, great songs and great album
p.s. The last song beautifully finishes the album with a mellow country-ish theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing follow up 5 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When i first heard sage francis was releasing a second full-length album i was the happiest man alive - i am a massive fan having all the albums from the "sick of..." series to personal journals (and non-prophets' hope in-between). however upon listening to the album i was slightly disapointed. this album is different to any other sage francis release. but upon listening to the album several more times it dawned on me that sage francis had not fallen off, he had simply grown up.
the lyrics have moved from introspective to external... focusing on society and how it affects him, rather than his personal life.
for those new to sage francis, i would recommend buying personal journals first... because once u hear that album you'll be able to understand this one.
sage francis is possibly the most intelligent rapper alive; however he is also one of the most skilled technically.
if your into rap which you hear on the radio, you may not like this album, but its never too late to get hooked, like millions others around the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth every star. 16 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
To the guy who gave this 1 star , it sounds to me like you are the one that is infact trying to write something for your sixth form english class. To be honest you are entitled to your opinion, just as the people who love gareth gates are entitled to theirs. However your opinion holds no wait with me and should not do so with any other hip hop fans who are fed up with the mainstream glamour rapping that seems to publically 'represent' hip hop.

This cd brings a new angle for me, of refreshing rhymes, which are both clever and cutting and a trully original back drop of beats and instrumentals. Buzz kill is a great song, really gathers momentum and come sat you hard. May take some of the greener listeners a little longer to get used to but persevere.

5 stars for offering something alternative but also very good to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Healthy Distrust (is a good thing) 21 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sage Francis of Anticon fame makes his 'Epitaph' debut with an album that can only be described as a corker.
Standout tracks include 'Sea Lion' 'Ground Control' and the hit-in-the-making' 'Escape Artist'. If you're new to underground hip hop leave any preconceived ideas at the door as Sage has re written the rule book a 1000 times and will continue to do so - If you were impressed/moved to tears by 'Personal Journals' then prepare for more of the same only with a greater emphasis on melody. Beats are supplied by (amongst others) Re animator & Joe Beats as Sage 'talks' (not raps) his way through his outlook on life - topics covered include guns, gays and Iraq.
Sage Francis deserves to be massive, he offers a derivative of hip hop that should be heard by everyone in the world, and what's more he's just getting started !!
