    Resurrection
    Very close between "Resurrection" and "Be" went with "Ressurrection" due to the production still sounding fresh to me after all these years. Plus they had great simpatico on that album.

    Be
    Be & Resurrection are his classics for me, i'd choose Be over Resurrection though, i prefer the beats.

    LWFC is a near classic, One day is a great album but i never listen to it anymore. Finding Forever is too watered down for me.

    From a technical standpoint resurrection is better. I enjoy "Be" more though. Like Water for Chocolate is underrated though, "6th sense" and "The Light" are top 5 com songs

    Ressurrection Be is a close second
    As I look back over a misspent life, I find myself more and more convinced that I had more fun posting on the IC than in any other enterprise. It is really the life of kings.

  • usmarin3usmarin3 Posts: 37,777 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Between Be or Resurrection, i would go with BE because it's a better listen musically.

    Got it on cassette with the original "Common Sense" name. Fuck that band that nobody's ever heard of.
    i'm not sure which entity leaves people more abused and lost; the Porn Industry or Bad Boy Records.
