4.0 out of 5 stars Some tight songs, but in places the album gets lost, 7 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: One Day It'll All Make Sense [Us Import] (Audio CD)
This is a good hip-hop album with intelligent rhymes and clever beats. 'Retrospect for life' is an incredibly good song, with Lauryn Hill's added vocals providing a contrast to Common's heartfelt rhymes about love and marriage. One of the other moving songs here is 'Fatherhood' in which his dad shares some feelings about his son and about learning- "I hear that I'm about to be a Grandfather, and I'm so proud"- while a laid back jazz buzzes in the background. Also good is 'G.O.D.' which displays Common's mature rhymes and natural deliveries. However, the album falls down on one or two tracks which are not quite so well conceived. Overall, it stands head and shoulders above much of the boring meaningless hip-hop out there, but it could be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Common's Best Album, 27 Jun 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: One Day It'll All Make Sense [Us Import] (Audio CD)
While his first album, Ressurection, is no doubt a classic which was created in what many consider to be the golden era of hip-hop, I believe One Day It'll All Make Sense is Common rhyming in his prime. It is here that he proved he had mastered the art of emceeing. He demonstrates many different flows and rhyme schemes with effortless perfection and his vocal delivery is full of heartfelt passion and sincerity. EMCEEING - 10 out of 10
Musically, there are a number of classic beats on this album but, on the flip side, also some beats that could be considered average. It doesn't matter much because with Common rhyming it just about makes bangin tunes out of them all. To me there are no skippers, every track has replay value because Common's vocal presence has firmly grabbed your attention after only his first few bars of rhyme. If pushed I would say yep some beats could have been better, they are the only imperfect aspect of an album which fortunately has other dimensions to counter-balance this flaw. BEATS - 7.5
Definately worth the purchase. A rare example of an exceptional artist in his prime.
OVERALL - 9 out of 10
