    Glad to see some comments about this being underrated. I totally agree, always liked it and probably always will. Natural follow up to Like Water for Chocolate in my opinion.

      Criminally, Criminally, Underrated!!! maybe one of the most underrated lps in all of hip hop a true masterpiece in my opinion if you dismissed it or overlooked it the first time please do yourself a favour and go back and revisit this album. I think people initially dismissed it because he went to left field stepped to much outside the box so to speak it sounded way to different from what they had become used to from Common. He really matured on this album lyrically, having to constantly rewind the tracks just because I either didn't catch a certain line in a track or didn't get what he was saying the first time round. The line up of musicians on this project was and is astounding for a hip hop project fromJill Scott, Bilal, Zap Mama, Mary J Blige, Cee-lo, stereo lab, Erykah Badu, Omar Legend after legend and lets not forget this was the first and only time we had the iconic Prince and J Dilla on the same track together thats worth the price of admission alone. Production from the likes of J Dilla of course and The Roots and many more all recorded in the legendary Electric Ladyland studios. Listening to it in 2016 it still sounds fresh as the day I first heard it my only complaint with the whole project is I Got A Right Ta seems a little out of place do yourself a favour get the vinyl its been amazingly mastered and sounds great and the artwork is awesome, I have mine framed :-).

        Incredibly underrated/misunderstood album. It's a shame that it wasn't more recognized at the time, because he was really onto something here.

          An Overtly underrated album! Absolutely versatile&amazing! Theres definitely something for everyone here. I was never a big Common fan but appreciated his mark in hip-hop. But with this album he created a truly beautiful masterpiece! And it sounds even more amazing on vinyl mastered beautifully by RJ! Definitely grab this if you can&if you enjoy hip hop that strays away from the predictable path, your soul may appreciate it.
