it's common. like every other common album, this is a five, no question about it.

i love how it's so fu*king raw; it's straight up 11 crazy-ass songs, no bullsh*t. the message is real clear, too- fu*k working on concepts, new sh*t, etc. rap is at it's best when one just lets it be and just raps. that's common. he and kanye just got in the studio, vibed, and ripped sh*t up in every way possible. there are only a select few albums that are both 5/5, classic, and meaningful, and Be is one of them. definitely common's best since ressurection.

i'm copping this one!

I give it 5. "Testify" is banging. That's one for the warm summer day when the windows are down.

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.
