School me on Sick Of...  Reply with quote  

I haven't heard a "Sick Of" since Sage stopped sending me free copies (i.e. after the first one that was on CD). There's been a lot of talk about them on here. Which should I try to find? How many of them are even out there?

I like Sick of Waging War a lot. It was the first Sage release I ever bought. I like it even better than PJs. That probably sounds like blasphemy to a lot of people around here. It works pretty well as an album for a compilation. It has enjoyable movie quotes from Blue Velvet, In the Company of Men, and Happiness. It contains "Makeshift Patriot" which is one of Sage's best songs.

Also, "Mourning Aftermath" remains one of my favorite Sage songs. I love the way it is so nakedly emotional (there's that word again) and technically brilliant at the same time. I never tire of that song.

Sick of Waiting Tables is still probably my favorite Sage Cd. Drop Bass, I keep calling, Bounce... Some of my favorite songs.

Still Sick is also good, lots of good tracks...

Sick of Waging wars is probably my second favorite of the series, a great mix of a bunch of different stuff.

Sickly Business was cool, kinda hit and miss for me.. I dig all of the old stuff, as well as the lost verse to mainstream,

Buy them from his mail order store, he always throws in little goodies. For you maybe he will throw in a used jock strap.

So you can be cool like the rest of us.

Sick of Waging War definately. Funny someone should mention a track off it as being one of their favourites. Hang Time is, without a doubt, in my top handful of Sage songs.

Why don't you just get all of them and form your own opinion?

Urine Trouble, in my opinion, is not one of his best. There are a lot of freestyles where, I don't know if he is just goofing off, Sage isn't at his strongest. He gets outshined by Slug and Apathy and at times just makes me cringe. There are some excellent tracks on there though.

Urine Trouble and the first one are the only ones that I've owned.

And I don't "buy them all" without getting feedback because I don't buy music that way. And I'm poor.

I understand and agree, but the way I see it is that the sick of-albums are for the hard core fan base. If you like Sage's music a lot, you'll buy 'em all. They're all equal, all have some weak but also very strong songs... I say get "still sickly business" - it's the best of both worlds - and "road tested", even though it's not a sick-release, but it will rock your fucking socks off.
