Li(F)E is a progression Aug. 9 2010
By Paul Wall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are a fan looking for another "hip-hop" album from Sage this is not it. If you are a fan of Sage with an open mind and a love for music in general this is a great album. At first listen being in the mind state of looking for hip-hop beats, I did not like the album. But several listens later lyrics and songs stayed with me. Sage again sparks thought and reflection. The man is a poet/lyrical genius. There is no change or disappointment to that here. Songs like "three sheets to the wind" and "the best of times" are the standouts on this album. I applaud the chance he took on this album and for continuing to express himself outside of the norm of "hip-hop" artist.

A MASTERPIECE Dec 27 2010
By D. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is an absolute MASTERPIECE.

IF... You are willing to give it a shot and don't have any preconceived notions on how a Sage album "Should" be, then you will LOVE it!!

I believe it is far beyond it's time, which is why some people will not understand it. But As a brilliant and innovate artist, who is constantly evolving such as Sage, I expect nothing less than this from him.

PS. I didn't exactly like A Healthy Distrust either, when I first heard it and it was only after several listens that I finally fell in love with the album.

Interesting... to say the most. July 8 2010
By Billy Schulz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is not what I was expecting at all. Sage Francis is one of my favorite rappers, I own all of his other CDs and they are on heavy rotaation off and on in my house. But this album let me down. It was not what I was expecting, which could have been a very good thing. This album is very different than his other albums, and I prefer the old Sage. The live band, although a interesting idea... does not hold water for me. It drowns out the most important part of Sages' work, the lyrics. Sage Francis started on the slam poetry scene, which is focused almost entirely on the poem and the passion within the poets voice. This album, I do not hear that passion. Some songs are ok, but no songs to me even compare to his other releases. I hope he returns closer to his roots. I do give him props for trying something different, every artist has to do it. Now, hopefully, when his next album comes out I will be sated.

Excellent refreshing creative new approach, and pulls it off May 21 2010
By Cassidy - Published on Amazon.com
Sage has the ability to really push the lyrical envelope. He does not fall short for this album at all. Some of the songs in here are equal to or greater than some of his thickest lyrics to date. The approach to the musical side of the album is very different from all of his prior approaches. This different angle is refreshing and he succeeds at what he was trying to do. The slow jams that the band produce do nothing more than emphasize sages lyrics despite what some think.

I love this album, I really dig all of his albums, and for him to take such a new angle to this one and pulls it off just shows that there is nothing to fear with whatever his direction he takes with his future albums.

As a side note I would be interested in a remix album, where he uses more of a trip hop/downtempo/jazz approach to back his lyrics. Not that this album leaves me wanting more, but I would like to have somehting to "bump" to while im cruzing.

Oh My! WOW April 1 2014
By Scoe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Oh my is right. I was totally blow away by this CD. I DO NOT LIKE RAP MUSIC, I HATE IT! My son got me to view a video of this artist and Sage Francis is something totally different all together. Wow, this dude is extremely intelligent, insightful and enormously talented. He made me tear-up, and laugh and totally agree with him as he agrees with me. He is spot-on when it comes to religion. WOW! My rap philosopher, dude
