    Hard to hear Sturgill’s voice. I like hearing Sturgill’s unique voice and the techno beats just overpower him on every track here. A Sailor’s Guide to Earth was an absolute masterpiece and I was hoping to hear the heart felt raw emotion in this album as well.

    A f***ing kaleidoscope for your ears!. Holy cow!! I can’t get enough of this album. I have to admit I was originally disappointed because I just discovered Sturgill during this past year and REALLY liked his first 3 albums, and this... well this is not those. I guess it was on the third listen through when I read the lyrics with the music that it hooked me, and oh man did it ever hook me! I believe this will go down as one of the great albums of the decade. Maybe the most appropriately titled album I can think of. Although, a better title might have been Here’s My Middle Finger... to all the money grabbing big wigs, to all the cookie cutter producers, to all his conveniently new friends, and to all his fans that think he should be in a box (like some of the reviewers I’ve seen on here). I was one of these fans 2 listens in. Now I say, “Make Art, my man! Make Art!”

    BOOM!. I'd let country music go a while back. Disappointed with the factory approach, pop lyric direction its' gone over the last 8 years or so. Then I ran across this guy's anime for Sound & Fury on Netflix ...HOLY SHT! Finally something new! Gritty, belt it out outlaw-country soul, with deep throbbing bass, and electro-funk hooks. My only complaint? IT'S TOO SHORT! MAKE MORE! In the meantime I'm getting a couple more of his albums and going on an outlaw-country binge... but Sound & Fury is my new go-to album.

    New school twist on an old school rock sound. I, personally, have never heard of Sturgill Simpson until recently when a friend was talking about a movie on Netflix. I gave it a watch and found it to be amazing. Kinda of Heavy Metal movie with a Japan vibe but the music was what I found the most interesting. I found it to be a new school flip on some classic rock sound, like listening to 70’s Rock all over again. I dig it, man.

    No use of his talent. Sturgill has a tremendous voice and sound that is never used or used very sparingly in this album. I am more interested in his voice regardless of genre, but he can be barely heard or in some not at all. This album should be credited to the musicians who played the instruments and not to Sturgill whose voice was wasted. I am a huge fan of him changing sound and style, but I am a fan of his, and there dosnt seem to be any Sturgill in this album. Even if he was all the creativity and talent behind it, for the fan who enjoys hearing him, this album isnt going to let you down.

    Great album - listen on repeat. This album needs to be a played all the way through... then again, and again, and again. Great song writing and a throw back to the concept albums of earlier rock groups - I miss the country vibes but the magic is still there, just turned up to 11

    Meh. I’m sorry. Love the guy. Have his other albums. Made a purchase based on previous experience. This is absolute garbage. Would I pay to see him in concert. Yes. Do I wish I didn’t purchase this album. Yes. Go back to what you did best.

    Let Down. I know that every artist has listened to country, rock, classical,opera and others. It shapes what makes them an artist. They also have a recording sound. That sound is their signature for the album. Sturgill's previous albums have that great sound and fantastic music. You could tell what he was listening to when growing up. On this cd he threw out his signature sound and music for some kind of strange blend of off the wall big shed music and sound. The recording and production is so tinny and tight that the lyric might be good but is spoild by the sound. The best sound is the one that has his signature on it. Mercury in Retrogram. I understand that sometimes an artist wanted to do something different. That doesn't mean that it will be good. At least he didn't change his name like one artist I know.{Garth Brooks}

    Defies genre(s). Unbelievable ALBUM. Has songs that might be singles but it’s better if you listen cover to cover. Open up your minds or move on if you don’t like or respect it. Can’t wait to see him play these live.
  • Wilcoghost
    5 stars
    It took a minute.... ...a few spins that is. But front to back this is his best, most consistent record. It’s a rock record through and through, and far more cohesive than the initial listen suggests. If you’re looking to get your “You Can Have the Crown” or “Turtles all the way Down” on, you way n’t find ‘em here. Appreciate this for the rock record it is, and a darn fine one, or go back to what he’s already put to tape. My favorite album so far this year. And it’s not particularly close.

    What happened?. I'm not sure what happened between this album and the last, but whatever it was, it wasn't good. The entire album feels like a bad 70's TV show song. Each song is remarkibly similar, with a never ending, nails on chaulkboard, electric guitar whaling in your ear.

    What the World NEEDS. Sturgill 4 President! He tells it the way it should be. Love the sound but love the lyrics more. Can’t get enough 🙌🏻⛩🎚⚔️🔮

    Quietest album I have from iTunes. I can't get volume out of this. I have full volume on my earbuds on my iphone and its not as loud as his other albums or my many other albums. Something is wrong. It obiovusly supposed to be played loudly and this isn't delivering.

    Absolutely amazing. I’ve never reviewed an album before but Sturgill has killed it with this one. The entire album is amazing. While there are some songs I enjoy more than others, I can listen to this on repeat and hear something different each time. Sturgill Simpson has really come out as his own artist and it shows in each song. Well done.

    Sturgill Simpson raises the level again. Just listen to this album from start to finish, then do it again, then repeat that. You can thank me later.

    Thanks Joe Rogan. I looked up his music after hearing him on the podcast and I’m glad to have discovered my new favorite band! I see plenty of reviews that are pretty disappointed that this is far away from what some people expected but after downloading all of his albums, I couldn’t be a bigger fan of this bands unwillingness to stay within easily defined boundaries. I highly recommend checking out the anime with it, and whatever you do, remember to breath.

    Awesome. Just AWESOME.. You gotta watch the album on Netflix to truly be able to appreciate this. It’s all the things we loved about the “Heavy Metal (1981) film but honestly...the music is better. This entire album EPIC. Yes...EPIC and I don’t give reviews. This is WORTH IT.

    Huh. What happened to Sturgil? This reminds me of the concept album Shooter Jennings made. Every song is a mess and his fantastic voice is just lost. I am a major fan and this is a letdown to say the least.

    Musician being a musician. First off, I am more of a fan of Sturgill Simpson and what he’s done than any other musician in the last 15 years. Huge Jamey Johnson, Hank Jr., Waylon, CDB, Cash and Merle fan, but have been really hooked on Sturgill since hearing his first solo album. That being said, every Sturgill album has been a progression and a sneak peak of things to come and Sound & Fury doesn’t disappoint in any way in my opinion. Sturgill is showing just how good he is!

    New fan. Just recently discovered Sturgill and I can’t get enough of his music. Every song I listen to I like. Sound & Fury is so f’n cool. I love the whole funk/outlaw/futuristic sounds he creates and makes it easy to imagine the story in your mind when you listen.

    I Don't Get It. I tried to like this album. Listened to it once, didn’t get it. Watched the Netflix Anime by Sturgill, still didn't get it. Got up and folded laundry without pausing it. A Sailor's Guide was profound...this is just...well...strange? I have Sturgill in a much played playlist with Tedeschi Trucks, and Jamie Johnson. This album won't be added. A one listen album for me.

    For fans of music. Sturgill is gonna lose some of his country purist fans with this one. But the fans of genuine, authentic, raw music are going to love it. The absolute only way to listen to this album is in order from start to finish... though I catch myself hitting repeat on “Make Art Not Friends” every time through. Amazing track. Overall album is 5/5.
