COMMON SENSE - The Dreamer/The Believer

Recommended Posts

I can't believe we haven't really discussed this on the board yet. His new album is so dope...probably THE BEST Hip-Hop album of 2011. Nearly all of his albums are flawless...or darn near flawless. This album keeps that tradition alive.

I can some up the whole thing by saying his classic Common Sense flow is in place with dope and clever lyrics. The production is dope on every single song. The sound is classic and timeless. Period. If you claim to love Hip-Hop, GET THIS ALBUM.

Blue Sky



Ghetto Dreams


Celebrate

Money's been a bit tight lately so I haven't picked it up. But he did stream it free on youtube a week before it was released and I gave it a listen. I thought it was a solid album. When I get some cash I'll be picking it up.

Common never disappoints me, money's tight for me right now too but I heard most of it on youtube so I'll definately buy, I got most of his CDs, he's one of the best ever

It is a nice album, my friend bought it and I listened with him. I will get it this month if God allows, because it is worth it!

Blue Sky and Celebrate are dope...Sweet is ehhh..and Ghetto Dreams is GARBAGE. I still can't get into that track. Here you have two incredible emcees collaborating and you come up with hot crap. Listen to Common's first verse ...wtf?

I know Common is an awesome emcee but come on...hes spitting that same crap that everyone talks about as to why rap sucks today.

I didn't like Ghetto Dreams ether.. Not because he talked about what he talked (although I always feel dirty after listening to Common talk about stuff like that), but because I was so disapointed about the fact that Common and Nas together had nothing else to talk about

I right with y'all. I love the production. I like their odd chemistry on the track. I like the energy of the song...I just hate the stupid subject matter.

The Dreamer/The Believer is a solid album. Not quite classic like BE or Resurrection but it's a real good album. I personally like Ghetto Dreams with Nas. It goes hard. Yeah the subject matter is gritty but that's nothing new for Common. Check his earlier work before One Day It'll All Make Sense.

I think I like the new album better than Be. Either way, I don't consider one to be too much better than the other.

I didn't like Be when it came out, but I gave it another chance about two years ago and I love it, absolutely great, Common is as smooth as always and Kanye absolutely aced it, one of the best produced albums ever
