    Copper Gone is definitely a high point in Sage Francis's already significant career.

    It's also among his best work and he raps with the passion and fury of a rapper on his first LP.

    Copper Gone is a mix of tried and true plus smarter and new, and it's an excellent reason to check in on Sage's evolution.

    It's cerebral, visceral storytelling. How you feel about that is your prerogative.

    Moody and downbeat with lots of anger and frustration, yet still rousing and conceptual, Copper Gone is just open and honest enough for fans to really feel for Sage, yet guarded enough to contribute to a real sense of mystery.

    In previous projects, Francis has demonstrated an ability to describe his world in vivid color. But when all you see is red, it’s hard to speak on anything else.

    His voice, permanently pitched just down from that half-shout Eminem reserves for songs about his mum. Without a fraction of that humour or rhythm, though, it sounds like a heckler at a council meeting. [Sep 2014, p.108]

    Pop matters being dumb c*nts as usual, outstanding album only track that i didn't like was Pressure Cooker, the rest is simply brilliant, iPop matters being dumb c*nts as usual, outstanding album only track that i didn't like was Pressure Cooker, the rest is simply brilliant, i was worried Sage had fell off after Li(F)e despite there being some undoubtedly amazing track on that project (little houdini, the best of times) but Sage truly put those fears to bed, this is some of Sages best work.
