  1. He rhymes like a champ. [Jun 2007, p.160]

    You can call it emo or you can call it hip-hop, but you have to call it some kind of wonderful. [#25, p.94]

    Its tracks work together to form a cohesive, incredibly personal whole. [May 2007, p.91]
  4. Much of "Human the Death Dance" goes for something deeper—the sound of an artist afraid of what he almost became. [12 May 2007]
  5. Human The Death Dance is a little too boastful, a little too obvious; the subtleties that made Francis’ previous offering so enjoyable and provided it with plenty of longevity have dissipated somewhat.
  6. As a primer, a first Sage Francis purchase, it’s fine; in light of his previous achievements, less so.
  7. Where Francis suffers is in the music.
