Who ripped this? ??? hopefully...
Webrip.

But, yeah, this sh*t is tight as hell - just waiting for an official rip without skips and 10 second pauses at the beginning and end of each track.

So far, my favorite song is "Go." I'm loving this sh*t right now, man.

I've been listening to it all night and all morning. I really like it, but I'm not sure about the 5/5 XXL (and a lot of you) gave it... If you are gonna make an album with only 11 tracks they all have to be gripping and I think a couple of these one just blend in a little too much.

I'm not saying the album is too short, great albums can be short (Illmatic), but I found Illmatic to be more edgy and gripping. Just an opinion of course. I also would have liked to see a little less Kanye...

Don't get me wrong, I really like this album... I just wish it had a little more edge to it. Maybe something new or shocking. A single Primo track would be a nice addition... Common always come correct lyrically so that isn't a concern, at the same time I like the production, it is just sometimes I find Kanye's melodies a little to easy to sleep to.

4.5/5 It is very close to a 5 in my eyes... I just hope the tracks on the official release have a little more pop to them... maybe my complaint is based more on the webrip quality. I guess we'll see.

Im very glad that an album like this came out since most sh*t has not been up to par lately. I thought I'd be disappointed with there only being 11 joints but I was wrong. Best album of 2005 thus far...no bullsh*t

To be clear... I didn't give you hate and that should be obvious to you, so chill out dude.

Ok, so you haven't listened to it yet, I'll take that, but then why are you dropping a sh*tty a*s 1/5 rating on an album that you haven't listened to?

That is almost deserving of hate in it self...

To be honest...I am the biggest Common fan...but I don't see what everyone else is seeing...5 mics? What deems it to be 5 mics? I've listened to it once, and I really don't see what ya'll cats see...

From a musical standpoint, beats wise, and the whole tone of the album it is ill, real hip-hop esque...and Common came decent with the lyrics...but I was expecting a LOT more...the album is missing something...don't get me wrong...this is still a great album by all means, but at this moment I can't give it a 5, it still seems like it's lacking something...Kanye and Jay Dee blessed this album, but I was expecting Common to bring a lot more...it just seemed like it's lacking...

After that first listen I give it a 4.5...but for now I won't rate anything...it seems like everybody follows trends on this site and just goes with what everyone else say, especially with this sh*t...so I'm gonna voice my own opinion...
