Default One of the most underrated hip hop albums ever



Production: 9.5
Lyrics: 9.5

Why not 10?

Because it didn't have any significant impact.

my favorites of his are the two right before this (resurrection and one day) but this one was awfully good. However, this was the album with "the light" which was a great track but opened the door to com-sense doing way too many love songs ever since. I used to love HER now means HIS EARLY RECORDS.

easily my favourite common album. however, i will say that the production is >>> the lyrics.: you can't say the beats didn't overshadow com's writing on most of the tracks.

Wait its not a 10 because it didnt have any significant impact yet you rated production and lyrics 9.5? That makes little to no sense.

Let me see here.

10, 9.9, 9.8, 9.7, 9.5 So the gap between 10 and 9.5 isnt significant.


Very good Com album, hardly the most underrated album ever.

i think that common album had some critical succes, whereas one day... was much more under the radar.

i think soul food by goodie moib and a swat ritual healing by witchdoctor present two hugely underrated hiphop albums.

and john forte's'i, john. not really a hiphop album perse, but great and very very underrated

Pete Rock and CL Smooth - Mecca and the Soul Brother, Black Moon - Total Eclipse a few more vastly underrated albums.

The 6th Sense and The Light are two of my favorite Common tracks ever. Fringe classic in my books.

Like Water for Chocolate is overrated if anything. Common is one of the least charismatic rappers to ever touch the mic. His flow is mediocre, and he is heavy handed with his lyrics.

Loot is right about Goodie Mob, John Forte, and Witchdoctor. Cool Breeze's East Point's Greatest Hits, like Soul Food and A S.W.A.T Healing Ritual, is a Dungeon Family joint, is an undervalued gem that few people have heard.

My thoughts over the eons on Common.

Common is a killer but his music gets trite and boring. Good album regardless though.
