  • Paste Sturgill Simpson: A Sailor's Guide to Earth Review Rating: 8.5

    “...A Sailor’s Guide to Earth is more ambitious by an order of magnitude than anything the Kentucky-born singer has done before.”

    "As a whole, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth is simultaneously eclectic and of a piece: It’s big and bold and sometimes messy, but never unfocused. The way that Simpson captures the passion, joy, anguish and exhaustion that are part of first-time parenthood makes the album a powerful tribute to his son, while establishing Simpson as an artist who, despite his country heart, simply won’t be confined by notions of genre or, for that matter, anyone else’s expectations."
