Like Rip Van Winkle. This album is amazing. This is an album that I refused to give a chance due to constint bad reviews. Sun Tzu is the only one I seen up in here that said this album was decent.

The production is very nice. I like the experimental feel.

All the songs melt into each other. Also , these tracks have more movements packed into them than some albums do on a whole. Great album.

I think K-Os has this experimental style also! I love both of his LP's.

Check "Exit" & "Joyful Rebellion"!

Very nice sound, 4 sure!

I love all the tracks on Electric circus but there are some real stand-outs. The track with the chick from StereoLab is the shit. I used to trip and listen to stereolab back in 99. They have these messages that you can hear if you are tripping. They set the records up for that shit. I got mad respect for Common. I always knew that he knew what was up but this album is the sinker for me. My favorite track is Aquarius.

I'm gonna look into K-os now.

yeah, real nice album!!

i used to hate commons relaxed, laid back style of rappin but recently i spun Uncommonly Nasty and really caught a vibe off Common, then i got Electric Circus. real decent, chill out album but its got its raw tracks on it too!

Duke is kinda versatile.

Common whole delivery on EC is wild. You can hear nothing but passion. What I wouldnt give to have video of the making of this album. Musta been crazy.

I think i already made a thread about how i thought it was his best album, most people say ressurection though,

track: between, me, you and liberation = classicness! True story as well, his best friend really is gay

I haven't liked Common since Resurrection album and i have no interest in listening to Electric Circus album. Come Close song is gay and the clothes he wore in the video are gay LOL. He's a bitch for letting Erykah Badu turn him into a weirdo.
