descent album, definitely not as good as b.e. but i think he was trying to go for something different with this one obviously. its descent though 3/5 for me. just my opinion

Common's too old to be "trying something different". Didn't he do that on Electric Circus years ago? "Inhale", "Announcement", and "Punch Drunk Love" are smoothed out coolness...probably the only joints bumpable from a hip hop perspective. "Make My Day" would be hot...if Andre 3000 did it. Some of the production(Neptunes and Mr. DJ) doesn't fit Common. Where the fu*k is No ID at? I see what he was going for with this album but it's ehhh...3/5

not the usual common however that is a good thing in this case, breath of fresh air i like the move as long as he ventured back to the old kanye/no id/common/dilla for his next album

i dont think there was anything wrong with the old common style... real mellow, chill beats and albums with cohesive themes and messages

this is just a rap album... beats and lyrics... nothing out of the ordinary

... then again it would be hard to top Like Water For Chocolate since J Dilla isn't around to produce anymore... common has been getting progressively worse since he peaked on that one...

i'd give it like 3/5... too many annoying up tempo pseudo club tracks

Just listened to it 3 straight times (it is a short album) . I was expecting the worst (Electric Circus) and got better than that. I don't know where it falls in his overall catalouge but it can't be higher than his last two or resurrection or one day or like chocolate (damn that's pretty much everything). Still a quality album. Haven't picked favorites yet but I do fu*k with announcement and gladiator. I like UMC as well

I haven't even listened yet but I did see some Electric Circus hate. I thought that was his third best album. If this is like that, I might dig it.

I dont compare Common's stuff to his old stuff...his old stuff can never be touched imo....

i compare it to his recent from Electric and forward.....BE as the best of all and imo his second best....

This cd is on the low end of his catalogue....On the first listen only like 3 tracks caught my ear ....the second and third listen about 5-6 ....

Not sure ...ill keep it in rotation....

this sh*t is hot garbage. wtf were you thinking common?! wow. now youre going all fruity on me. he took ten steps back with this piece of sh*t. is this the new age of hip hop? tight sweaters and tight pants? singing and dancing? goofy a.ss melodies and instruments. auto tune? these n*ggas think they are rock stars now. aint talking bout sh*t no more. no substance at all. not one clever song. no positive messages. wtf happened to you common? they got to you too? i mean even the metaphors and similies....his whole style is garbage on this. talkin bout "this is hip hop baby"! bullsh*t. n*gga is tryin to rhyme platinum and stadium together. he lost it


1/5
