I cannot stress how great this album is. I did like both Be and Finding Forever, but I haven’t really enjoyed a Common album this much since Like Water For Chocolate. Common and producer No I.D. have put together a hip hop conscious masterpiece. The production is soulful and smooth, and combined with Common’s lyrics, make a perfect marriage. I will probably be posting a song everyday till his album, the Dreamer, the Believer hits stores on the 20th. Check out “Cloth,” just one of the many amazing tracks from this album.
Common over soulful beats, yes please. Man oh man this sounds good. No I.D. is handling most of the production for Common’s new album, The Dreamer, The Believer, and as long as they all sound as good as this we are in for a treat. Common Sense has been a favorite of mine ever since, Can I Borrow a Dollar? With the unfortunate loss of J Dilla, I was worried about his future records. Then Kanye came along and gave me hope, and now with No I.D., we are in for some great music this holiday!
