    Be is one of the best hip-hop albums of the 00's so I'll always check out anything Common puts out

    I have listened to the whole album now and it's really good. There are only two track that aren't really doing it for me. I'll have more to say about it once I gathered my thoughts.

    I will always love Common through the ups and downs. Glad he seems to be on an upswing again.

    When exactly was Common down? I did not like the production on "Nobody's Smiling" because it wasn't what I'm looking for in a Common album, but it certainly wasn't bad, and The Dreamer/The Believer was great. I think the only Commons albums that aren't all that good are "Universal Mind Control", because it was kind of lackluster, and "Can I Borrow a Dollar?", because at that point he was just an also-ran backpack rapper that hadn't find his voice yet.

    I'm not attacking you, I'm just wondering, because I have been hearing this more often lately.

    Universal Mind Control was a travesty and The Dreamer, The Believer was a bit lost.

    First listen and WOW this is good. Gotta be my favorite since Be at first blush.

    I honestly forgot UMC existed. I sold that back to Newbury Comics the very next day

    I remember certain old heads (which really can also be a young person) on some forum I frequented being in complete denial about UMC. I distinctively remember the phrase "a fun start breakdancing in the middle of the street record", haha.

    Finding Forever is an underrated album in general

    I agree, it's just hard being the album after Be
