    Comment: This album was where I last left off of Common(Sense) albums before the next 6 albums later, the reason, well as far as the essence...his career as a Emcee/rapper he wasn't that exploited(Blown up) because at that time he was the emcee's, emcee as an underdog where everyone thought he deserved music awards after a span of those nine years for the first four albums. He has had a touch of the golden era 92, then I Use to Love H.E.R.(Resurrection in 94), then the next two albums up till this one he reached out to other artists. and got involved with the situation with Rawkus in 99 and 2000 pre 911 and pre iTunes. :ooks like the first four albums there were three years in between each album. Don't get me wrong, Rawkus music in the late 90's was amazing but how the artists got compensated in the music business wasn't that great. What was interesting was this album was released right when MCA was just about to take over Rawkus being that this album is an MCA release. Another interesting thing about Common's career is that this was just before he became an actor, so the first four albums over the span of 9 years, his focus and time was directed towards music making so there weren't too many time constraints with a hectic busy schedule. This album I think was right when the Soulquairians came together and ?uestlove executively produced this album. The Soulquairians was like the next generation of the Native Tongues for the new millennium and self-proclaiming a new movement at the time called neo-soul. There were mixed opinions about neo-soul which was intended as a soul music revival. This was the last Common Sense album I consumed all because from my personal experience I sensed the essence flowed some kind of kinetic energy from the first to the fourth album because I realized that more Hip Hop artists began to release records independently in the late 90's and independent Hip Hop preserved as a unadulterated raw folk art and culture with all Hip Hop artist's own creative control was more of the matter rather than the politics of big label executive music business and its exploitations.

    Comment: This album…. Thelonious is the best song mankind has ever created. Nag Champa? fucking flawless, The Light? Fucking flawless. The only flaws on this album were the time travellin tracks and the question. Some of Dilla's best work and some of Common's best work.
