Just when you thought making an allegorical album about sailing meant to teach his son about life was the biggest left turn Sturgill Simpson could make, here comes ‘SOUND & FURY,’ an album Simpson himself called a “scuzzy rock album” that has more crunchy, ‘Heavy Metal’ esque riffs than you shake your Martin at. It’s Simpson’s most psychedelic album yet, and really puts off the “how will he save country music?” talk again, to great effect: This is a rock album that totally whips ass, in a way you didn’t think you’d get from Simpson. The album is accompanied by an anime film which will make a lot more sense when you can hear the record: You can practically see the hot rods and samurai fights in your mind when you listen to it.
