Sage Francis - Li(f)e [2010]

Sage Francis is wacky. He's a spoken word poet as well as a great emcee, and you can hear his spoken-wordness in a lot of his songs. That among other things make this album far from a "rap" album. Many of the beats on this album are live-instrument indie songs, straying far from the 16 bars-chorus-16 bars routine that makes up a lot of rap music. Sage does well, and tackles some uncomfortable topics on this album, but he flows so comfortably over the music that its all good.
