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...
That's basically what I said... I think the album would need just alittle more to be a 5/5 album... The production is nice, but I find Kanye too easy to sleep to...

i think it is an instant classic. it is classic because of kanye and i hope you all know and realize that. wait till kanyes new album that will be classic also. common is great lyrically but without kanye the album would be a 3 or 4 out of 5. i hope it has the kind of success it deserves though because if it doesnt sell good than that is a serious blow to the future of hip hop because it will tell artists that they cant make an intelligent soulful album and have it sell well. kanye wests album was one to really do that and hopefully this one will get the props it deserves.

yea.... 5 mics, this is an instant classic. kanye's production is groundbreaking, and common doesn't disappoint lyrically. what else did you expect tho...

everyone's gotta cop this when it comes out too, seriously, show that theres a market out there that isn't g-unit. cause it'd be pretty fu*kin sad if this didn't sell like it should.

This is a hot album but i think that alot of people are giving it 5 mics b/c of the production. If u take kanye's production from it alot of people would say that its wack.

Only pop hip hop fan who don't appreciate lyricism... or just don't listen to what Common has to say...

I was telling my mans, I aint felt this good about an album after the first listen since Blueprint. Thanks for bringing out The Fix, I forgot how much I dug that album when I first got it. I'ma have to find that again.

This is hip hop at it's fullest. The first listen i was calling my boys letting them know i found a classic. I will most definitely support this when it comes out just to keep him paid so he can keep making REAL hip hop like this. Oh, and he is from the CHI!!! 87th to the Muh fu*kin end!!!! Common gonna keep it in CHI!!!! LOVE! 55 MICS!

we all gotta cop this cd when it drops or hip hop is gonna die, im jus hoping that this is an advnace and the real cd has longer instrumentals at the end of each track, whcih im sure it will, my only complaint on this cd is the 1st song, i wish sooo bad that he spit one more verse on BE, that beat is sooo sic and such a waste that he didnt go on right after that, hopefully kanye will do a remix to that or sumpin so we can get another verse on the end of that, cd still 10/5, hopefully gets bumped up so we can purchase it, im hoping it sells, he deserves it.

This album is a classic, but I dont think its better than Like Chocolate For Water, cause its not as well rounded musically. All though all the beats are dope, they blend togther alittle to well.
