Album Review

With his previous records (released under the name Common Sense), Common demonstrated that he was one of the few Midwestern rappers to have a unique vision, but One Day It'll All Make Sense is where his talents come into focus. Blending hip-hop with jazz is a '90s cliché, but Common relies on bebop rhythms and street poetry, resulting in an album that has a loose, organic flow. The grooves have deep roots and the rhymes have humor, heart, and intelligence — few of contemporaries could achieve the emotional impact of "Retrospect for Life" or the gospel-tinged "G.O.D. (Gaining One's Definition)." And that extra layer of emotional involvement gives One Day It'll All Make Sense a weight and spirituality that makes the record special. Certainly few of his peers have made an album as musically and lyrically rich as this, and it's about time others follow his lead.

My Fav Common Album!

In my opinion this album is his best work. Listening to this reminds me of good times especially listening to "Reminding Me (of Sef)" defiantly deserves 5 stars

Awesome

Common rhymes about topics that really make you think and he rhymes about common problems that effects everyone. No doubt one of the best rappers of all time with his lyricism and flow

Pretty good

This album is old, how could you not write this earlier? Anyways, this is a pretty dope album, especially Retrospect for Life, which sounds old and jazzy, but his rhymes are great. Not his best work, but up there.

Common (originally Common Sense) was a highly influential figure in rap's underground during the '90s, keeping the sophisticated lyrical technique and flowing syncopations of jazz-rap alive in an era when commercial gangsta rap was threatening to obliterate everything in its path. 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...
