I have had several re-issues but this is really the best pressing. The basses really go to sub-low low and there is also crystal clear and fine highs. Just a topper that you have to be financially crooked for, but it is worth every euro. A hip hop classic of stature, historically 10/10. ❤️

Source wiki:
Resurrection is the second studio album by American rapper Common, then known as Common Sense, which was released on October 4, 1994, by Relativity Records. It was mainly produced by No I.D., who also produced most of Common's 1992 debut Can I Borrow A Dollar?

The album received critical acclaim but not a significant amount of mainstream attention. Originally, it was rated 3.5 mikes in The Source;[2] however, in 1998, it was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Hip Hop Albums.

The album is divided into two sections: the "East Side of Stony" (tracks 1-7) and "West Side of Stony" (tracks 8-15). Stony Island Avenue is a street that runs through the South Side of Chicago, where Common was raised. The closing track, "Pop's Rap" was the first of a series of tracks featuring spoken word and poetry by Common's father Lonnie "Pops" Lynn Sr., whom Common has used to close several of his albums since. Interlaced throughout the album are short interludes that form a loose narrative concerning day-to-day life on the South Side.

Songs such as "Thisisme", are full of self-assessing rhymes that reflect the emcee's personal growth since 1992's Can I Borrow A Dollar? Likewise the crasser moments found on that LP, such as the misogynistic "Heidi Hoe" are greatly toned down for Resurrection, and replaced by thought-provoking narratives such as "Chapter 13 (Rich Man Vs. Poor Man)", and "I Used to Love H.E.R." - a song that re-imagines Hip hop as a formerly unadulterated woman, led astray after being enticed by materialistic elements of life. The use of a conflicted woman as an allegory for Hip hop allowed Common to covertly express his disdain at the genre's turn toward gangsta-inspired content and what he saw as the resulting reorientation of hip hop artists.

This song, which brought Common to the attention of fans and music critics alike, would also become the cause of a rift between the rapper and West Coast emcee Ice Cube, who took exception to the insinuation that the West Coast pioneered gangsta style was detrimental to hip hop—even going as far as to claim that hip hop altogether "started in the West"[citation needed]. Together with his Westside Connection compatriots, Cube hurled insults Common's way on the song "Westside Slaughterhouse" and throughout the group's album Bow Down, to which the rapper replied with the equally venomous "The Bitch in Yoo." In the aftermath of the murders of both Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., the rivalry would be settled out of public view at a peacemaking function held by Louis Farrakhan at his home.

The album is broken down track-by-track by Common in Brian Coleman's book Check the Technique. For more info, go to Wiki.
