After a few listens now, I've come to the conclusion that the new Sage Francis album, available in Feb 05, is perhaps the best hiphop album I've heard yet. It is not for the weak of heart and ear. In fact, I don't think I'd let anyone in the "Beginner" stage listen to A Healthy Distrust because this is solely intended for advanced and expert listeners. I've also got the new Eminem album. Listening to it yesterday made me chuckle at just how immature and tame it seemed comparitively. There are a number of "good" tracks on his album, tracks that actually have some depth and soul, but he's cutting himself with safety scissors while Sage spits with a mouthful of razor blades. It makes me sad for anyone who hasn't found their way past MTV-hop and into the light.
