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.
