Common's first album (Can I Borrow A Dollar?) had some promise, but he really solidified himself with Resurrection, one of the best full lengths of the era. A rare sophomore effort that overshadows the debut. It's another of the golden era hip hop albums that was really made as a whole (vs. the hit single focus today). No obvious weaknesses here as the lyricism and beats win games. NO ID plays Phil Jackson behind the boards as he puts some magic into the beats. Amazing shit: "Resurrection," "I Used to Lover Her," "Communism," "Chapter 13," "Watermelon," "Nothin to Do" and "Maintaining". Single LP press just like the O.G. (except this has 'Common' on the cover instead of 'Common Sense'), guaranteed this will be glued to your turntable.
