    Its good, but not spectacular IMO. Its kind of cruise control. The beats are great but don't really jump at you, but I find them better than Com's lyrical performance. He's kinda just rappin here, doesn't sound like he has a lot to prove (and he doesn't). Good, but kinda lacks hunger. This seems like a grower of an album anyways, I may change my mind after a month of listening.

    Great album. Good beats and Common always has lyrics.

    Albums definitely a grower man. Ive been listening to this since ive been on vacation and the more i get to know the songs the more i can appreciate them. I felt the same way about the cruise control but i gettin to the point where i get excited for the next song. I LOVE The first 6 songs on the album. Perfect way to start it out imo.

    This is how I viewed it, but can definitely coincide with Lou in that I'm sure my opinion will change with more listens… Resurrection will always be up there in my favourite albums of all time.
  • IMO one of the best albums of 2011
