this is a beautiful album, and i think it certainly rivals Resurrection...the whole thing is just straight poetry. the track '6th sense' gives me shivers...anybody else here fond of this cd?

Its hot, when it came out I was kinda so-so on it. I dont think its better than "One day.." but way better than Electric Circus.

Resurrection
One day it'll all make Sense
BE
Like Water

Yeah, its good. These days all of Common's older albums are easy to find since everyone jumped on his dick at once when BE dropped. It is second behind Resurection.

Its crazy, like he just became hot when Kanye "discovered" him. Shit, to be honest anything he dropped was gonna be hot after that Electric Circus shit. I think after the Prequel thats the wackest album a nice nigga ever dropped...oh I forgot about Amplfied.

Common is among the top MCs of all time, in my opinion...his poetry is unparalleled, and his ear for beats is impeccable...actually i havent heard electric circus, but i heard it was quite an eclectic album, packed with too many concepts for each of these individual concepts to be appreciated fully. i'll hear it sometime...but i have too many albums in front of it that i need to get.

Good post^

And I was playin One Day... last week, truly a beautiful album.

I guess it'll be Resurrection this week, and Like Water the next... I've already played BE 1000 times so it'll be a while before I bump that again >_<

Resurrection is his best album. PERIOD. After listening to everything else, you get dissapointed, that's how you know a album is good

Come on man, Like Water isnt a classic album, not even close. Next I'm gonna be hearing Ying Yang Twins has classic material. Other then love thats the most abused word, ever.

i'm sure you're not comparing Like Water... to grossly inferior and visceral material from ying yang, right??

I wasnt comparing YYT's to Common, what I was saying is that people are trigger happy when it comes to calling something classic material. Like Water.. to me only had like 5 hot tracks on it, for something to be labeled classic in my opinion at least 85-90% of the album has to be fire, with that ave., you have maybe one or two FF joints.

common = most underrated of all time ! psh, not anymore.

i just hope when he comes out with a next album, that kanye isnt all over it. i dont mind a few produced by him, but he doesnt have to be on every track he produces..
