Album Review: Sage Francis - Copper Gone

Sage Francis
Copper Gone
Strange Famous Records
Producer: Various
Score: 8 out of 10


It has been four years since Sage Francis’ last studio album, but it’s four years well spent as Copper Gone will surely be regarded as one of his best releases, if not his best. With a poetic lyricism that can be simultaneously beautiful and biting—particularly the opening of “Dead Man’s Float”—Copper Gone will get under the listener’s skin with its bitter truths. As an older artist, Francis has experiences to pull from that his younger counterparts do not, giving him an air of relatability. While many may view this as a disadvantage we can say that it is working completely in his favor. – Victoria Patneaude
