This shows the influence a magazine like XXL has... We'll all be running out on the day of release, to get the album... Including me!

i'll be running out to buy it, not because of what a fucking magazine says, but because im a common fan and own all his previous albums, including the disappointment that was Electric Circus...

That's you, but I bet most of the people responding here don't have any of his albums (including me). It's true, there's not many XXL rates albums out there, this has to be something special. It should be at least worth checking out.

Props to Minkaveli for informing us on the release date!

This is gonna be real dope by the sound of it. Common always put together dope albums (Electric Circus excluded), and after his split with Erykah and having Kanye pushing him along he seems to have got his hunger back.

By the way, LMAO at Jay Dee being referred to as K-Dilla in the article.

Why didn't anyone like Electric Circus? Certainly not his best but by no means a bad album.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

I liked what they tried to do with the album, I just didn't quite think it worked as well as it could have, and therefore it was disappointing to me, because it didn't feel complete.
