I'm def gonna buy it when it drops on the 31st. My fav songs are Misunderstood, The Game, Southside, I Want You, The People, and I Want You. The Lily Allen song is pretty good too. Looks like hes trying to do with her like ghost did with Amy Winehouse. What do u guys think of the album?^O^

It is very good. Have to give it a few more spins before I can compare it to his other releases though.

Misunderstood is really dope. Overall I find the album Ok, just not much of a Com fan, though I've tried.

Misunderstood is fucking good. When did this leak? Is it the real album?

If you thought it was gonna be different then soft, you didn't listen to Be.

I'm pretty disappointed with this, after hearing "The People" and "The Game" I was really looking forward to the album. I expected it to be pretty soft but not this soft, another let down :(

I only heard 6 tracks from the album and I like all of them...Common is a chilled out & sometimes abstract type of guy, ya ain't a fan if u don't know that

So you won't feel weird walking up to the counter to purchase something with that cover art?

possibly the best album of the year.

common sounds like he did on "Resurrection" and "For Water Like Chocolate" and this album has the best body of kanye production ive heard. (then again i dont like his production on his solos...)

some interesting lines also, for instance.

"with 12 monkeys on stage, its hard to see who's a gorilla, you was better as drug dealer"

to everyone who is or will be surprised by the "soft" style:

common is an MC who definitely diversifies his musical tastes, so you're not always gonna here pure urban Hip Hop when you pop in Common, it'll be a bit left field.

i hate him being called soft...soft is Lil mama, who is oddly considered hard.

This cd is good. Some real tight songs on it. Real nice to hear something refreshing too (always with Common).

I've heard enough bragging, money and gangster talk lately.

I really enjoy this one over 'Be' which I thought was very average.

And it's not like this record is stellar or anything. It's just good. Everyone should just leave it at that.

in comparison with other stuff coming out, its good, im not saying its a classic.

just probably in the top 3 hip hop releases of the year...
