Wise old Sage Francis, the philosophical whirlwind of words, returns with Copper Gone, a stirring album of worldly rhymes in story-like analogies and metaphors with universal lessons tossed in the mix. The pace of the project does not slow down for anyone except for itself so thinking caps are required. The production is equally frenetic at times. Multiple listens may be required to catch all the layered rhymes and embedded meaning. In Copper Gone and in more or less all his prior albums, Sage Francis is more concerned with sparking provocative thought as opposed to making feet tap, but he nevertheless has a keen sense of rhythm in his mission to teach, motivate and pay dues. Fantastically lyrical, poignant and profound, Copper Gone finds Sage Francis in proper form.
