WHAT?

How can you possibly have a collection of Common's singles and not have 'I Used To Love H.E.R.'? Not a big fan of that.

NOT a comprehensive collection, but it's got flow

This collection is very "top heavy" with regard to the latter half of Common's career. Nearly ALL of the tracks are from "Be" and "Finding Forever". I find it frustrating that they had the nerve to call this "Common Classics" since it doesn't contain any of his actual "classic" tracks. So as a greatest hits album, or as an overview of his career, it fails.

"Resurrection", "One Day It Will All Make Sense", and "Like Water for Chocolate" (three of his very best albums) are not represented at all, and "Take It Easy"--his first single--is not here either.

HOWEVER, this collection has a nice flow to it because, like I said above, it's basically tracks from two albums both of which were almost entirely produced by Kanye West. I mean, this is essentially an album created for people who liked his new film with Queen Latifah and want to hear his music...so in that regard, if you're NOT a hip-hop head, then this should be fine, but I can't seriously recommend this to anyone who honestly wants to check out Common's music. For that, just pick up the individual albums.

Missing a few gems...

...why would you even consider releasing this without including any of the classics. Fail.

His outward looking, nimbly performed rhymes and political consciousness certainly didn't fit the fashions of the moment, but he was able to win a devoted cult audience. By the late '90s, a substantial underground movement...
