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.

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.

    There's a message in the music

    While listening to this album I could sense a coming of age in Common. His brand of hip hop may not be suited for the wild out type. Who it is reserved for is the type of person who can relate to coming to grips with the realities of the world around them. Anger, hope, pain and love have all been poured in to this effort.'Invocation', 'Real N**** Quotes','Hungry' and 'G.O.D.' are examples of those emotions. But the real testament to Common's humanity as well as his artistic ability is on 'Retrospect for Life featuring Lauryn Hill'. It is here we learn of the real price paid dealing with abortion and the love of a life forever lost. Common is right. We need to start respecting life more. If we did talent like this as well as life itself would not go to waste. We need more artist like this.

    RESPECT TO THE BROTHER, COMMON

    This LP was break from the nonsense that is constantly being played on the radio and what is coming out period. Point blank this is hip hop from the heart. This album can be played all the way through. Common has definitely established himself as one of hip hop's most talented artists. Buy the new album so that this cat can get the much deserved platinum status.
