The Way Forward
on 19 April 2005
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.
