Editorial Reviews

The Dreamer, The Believer delivers the consciousness Common's audience has to come expect from him, but also a rawness and passion that might come as a surprise. Some might even say that he's rapping with a chip on his shoulder.

If your a fan of Common, then by now you'll most likely have noticed there is a pattern with him and his work: He'll put out maybe one or two quality, dope albums in a row, then get comfortable and try to branch out a bit and do something experimental, then after an overall lukewarm reception from the fans, goes right back in and cranks out another gem to make up for the last one. The Dreamer, The Believer is the fruits of his labor after the experiment, and true to the pattern he has established for himself, it is indeed a gem.

Its good to see your favorite artists grow and mature musically over the years, but its even better when they know how to go back to the sound that got you interested in them in the first place. Common definitely does that by wisely linking up with long time collaborator No I.D. to produce the entire album. Despite how well Common and Kanye work together (see Com's album, Be) The chemistry born between these two on wax is awe inspiring, and if you somehow missed out on the last masterpiece created by their said chemestry (Resurrection) then here is a good chance to see what its about. Com really put his foot in this one.

Starting things off on the right foot, the album opens up with "The Dreamer" feat. Maya Angelou, in which Com raps about the many aspects of dreaming to do bigger things. While already being well written by Com, the fantasic and soulful, in your face production from No I.D. punctuated with the wise words of Maya Angelou closing it out really make this a noteworthy track. Easily, my favorite track on the CD.

I know not a clue about Chicago, but when it comes to music, Common is the REAL chi that I know... With this album, its clear that the Yeezy effect is just an option.. and this album is my classic already... the underrated rapper has shown his true skill with this album, and this is officially my favorite release of the year... I had no idea it was coming, and bam, hit me with surprise with nothing but talent..

the feeling of this album is like falling in love with a woman you don't know, and knowing nothing about the Chi, I'm in love with the REAL chi town music... keep it moving Com... top to bottom of the album was flame without a Flocka....

As someone said earlier, Common has great albums, then he branches out to something new. This is a CLASSIC in the making. I bought it first thing this morning, placed it in the CD player in the car and didn't skip a single song. I'm not a huge fan of The Believer (track 11) and Pop's Belief (Track 12), but the first 10 songs are great, the music is conscious, the beats are ridiculous and the CD is better than 90% of what's out there today. It makes my Top 5 for 2011, just in time for Christmas.

Come on man... he got Maya Angelou on a track son! MAYA ANGELOU! If yo favorite "rapper" could only pay for "hood skipper" on his album, its really cause Maya Angelou thought he had nothing to say on the mic! Props to Common for the great album, conscious lyrics and great production. Suprise to me... good hip-hop is alive!

Suprise tracks:
Dreamer featuring Maya Angelou
and
Ghetto Dreams featuring Nas!

HIP HOP MAKES A NICE COUGH FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE... good job Common.

I'm a giant Common fan, and its great to see him come back with a more traditional album, after UMC-Which was pretty bad. This album is fantastic. I rate it around 92/100 or so.....Heres a track-by track review. Overall rating of song in {}'s

1. The Dreamer [Feat. Maya Angelou]-A Great, chilling track, positive, album starts off great {89/100}
2. Ghetto Dreams [Feat. Nas]-Fantastic, Nas & Common both KILLED their verses. One Of My Favorite tracks on the album. {96/100}
3. Blue Sky-Another Fantastic Song, Common can switch up his flow WITH EASE, Its a banger also, fantastic hook. Probably my favorite, with Ghetto Dreams. {97/100}
4. Sweet-Kind of an untraditonal Common track, more of a bragging/dissing song. He disses rappers who sing too much [I.E Drake], Nevertheless, i still liked this track {85/100}
5. Gold-This was an ALRIGHT Track, its just kind of a chill out song, nothing bad though, {78/100}
6. Lovin Lost-I Liked this track, had some nice lyricism, nice song overall {80}
7. Raw [How You Like It]-I Really liked this one, i loved the beat, and the hook. Great. {93/100}
8. Cloth-Again, GREAT GREAT Track, i can chillout to this also, superb lyricism {91/100}
10. Windows-I Liked all the tracks on this album, this is one of them, i liked the story behind it {89/100}
11. The Believer [Feat. John Legend] Legend's style complements Common's rapping style, good track {88/100}
12. Pops Belif-Cant really rate a pop's belief, but it was a fitting end to the album

Overall, this is worth a buy! I'v listened to it like 8 times, in two days...I Rate it overall, around like 93/100..
BUY IT
