5.0 out of 5 stars I Used To Love H.E.R., 15 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Dreamer, The Believer (Audio CD)
Common is one of the most consistent MC's in the game.

He's unafraid to experiment. He's unafraid of going against the grain. And he's delivered yet another classic.

To me, his peak was 'Resurrection' in 1994, the DJ Premier-helmed joint that included the golden age classic 'I Used To Love H.E.R.' with its clever hip-hop history theme. Second to this was his lavish, soul-infused 'Like Water For Chocolate' from 2000.

I would, however, add this new set 'The Dreamer, The Believer' not far behind. It's in the same league as 'Be' and 'Finding Forever'.

With quality beats throughout from Chi-town legend No-ID, the opening cut 'The Dreamer' along with the bangin' Nas duet 'Ghetto Dreams' set the bar extremely high. And the rest of the set does not dissapoint.

Agreed, there are no out-the-box hits for either radio, club or the pop charts. But, as any real fans know, that far from means this isn't a hot album.

My only criticism is the album is so short. I know the adage of quality over quantity, but just as you are really getting into it, it is suddenly over. But that's actually just because it is so good, you want more!

Good review but DJ Premier had nothing to do with `Resurrection`,NO I.D. produced most if not the whole album. DJ Premier didn`t work with Common until The 6th sense track on `Like Water For Chocolate` in 2000. Peace.
