Common drops off a new project. This is a pretty decent project, but one thing that has been happening for awhile is that Common’s albums are starting to sound the same. It’s like one big long freestyle anymore without each song being a focused topic. His bars are good, it’s just that listeners can get lost because of the redundancy. I’m not saying that the bars aren’t important, it’s just that sometimes messages can get lost in the mix when everything sounds the same all the time. The beats on here are about what I would have expected, but in a good way. You get an upbeat, melodic trip through revolution with the music side. The highlight of this project is “What Do You Say (Move It Baby)” which features the very talented singer PJ. She blesses this track and a number of other ones on this album which makes the songs a bit more melodic. All in all, this wasn’t a bad album, I just wish that Common would branch out a bit and give us more of a range with his songs.

OVERALL RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
