Is it just on this song? I listened to the track he's on and I can't say I was a fan either. But you don't even like Personal Journals?! I guess to each their own, ha.
I mean, I think Sage has had his moments but his worst bogs 'em down. I personally find most of Journals quite unlistenable, almost boring. A little too 'slam poetry'-esque. I found myself liking some of A Healthy Distrust, but overall Sage's ambition far exceeds his skill.
