Product Description


Common's skills are unique, and his style is complete, but his most effective talents are in constructing an album of material that listens like a book. One Day is a fully realized, start-to-finish memoir of a Chicago-based African American male, and it's equal to any challenge from the literary form. To listen to One Day is to pass through a multifaceted relationship between a father and a son, an expecting father and an impending son, and a man and his spirit, all set in the wake of a close friend's death. (This album is deep.) One Day features cameos from the cream of the hip-hop crop, including De La Soul, Lauryn Hill (the Fugees), Erykah Badu, and an indelible Canibus. Common can take his place as the responsible father of hip-hop and a dope MC as well. --Saren Sakurai

4.0 out of 5 stars The Title Fits Perfectly May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
I had this album for 2 years before I appreciated it. When I first listened to the album, I thought it was a cool album to vibe with. Who knew that a couple of years later (when I copped "Like Water For Chocolate"), It'll All Make Sense. Of course, Common is at the top of his game with the ill metaphors and similes. Some of the beats weren't up to par with Common's MC skills, but this album still shines. Even Canibus shows up to steal the show on "Making A Name For Ourselves". At the end of the album, I was left wanting more (which was a good thing). Definitely peep this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars From musical "Resurrection" to EVOLUTION Feb. 9 2004
By X.W Nav
Format:Audio CD
I am sure there are many people who believe that Common reached his pinnacle on his classic, "Resurrection". I am sure there are those who believe that NO I.D's production on "Resurrection" was more consistent, forming one complete album. Well, this is just Common's way of expanding. ODIAMS, is Common's MASTERPIECE, not just a classic. I am not going to bother with distinctions, because you'll understand if you're feeling this album...Common, who is naturally a deep lyricist, gets DEEEEEEEEP on here... from the start of "Invocation" with, "Invision in the hereafter, listenin' to Steve Wonder, on a ?uest for love, like the "Proceed" drummer"...to the nostalgic track "Reminding Me (Of Sef), where he reminisces on his b-boy days in Chi-Town, an incredible autiobiographical track. This whole album plays out like one large memoir, a hip hop memoir...Common rips the mic lyrically with clever puns and similies, just as he did on "Res...", and tracks like "Real N*gga Quotes", "Food For Funk", "Hungry", "1,2 Many", and "Making A Name For Ourselves" proves this...and then the conceptual pieces, such as "Retrospect For Life" and "G.O.D"...on the former, Common passionately rhymes about the issues of abortion and potentional fatherhood, hitting right on point, making it one of the best songs EVER...and same goes for the latter, "G.O.D", where he rhymes about the importance of religion and faith, and essentially, Gaining One's Definition...Cee-Lo also contributes, and to a great effect...and then the "Stolen Moments" triology, that could only come from an ecmee/artist as different as Common (Sense)...these tracks are evidence of Comm's talent as a story teller (the heart of hip hop lyricism), which would make the likes of Slick Ricky D proud...

4.0 out of 5 stars Still good. April 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
I understand that this album was made during a not-so-nice time for Common, and his emotions seems to reflect. There are some incredible beats and lyrics once more, but there are a few tracks that seem to not even suit Common's style. In fact, at some points in a few tracks, was the first time where I couldn't actually understand what he was trying to get across. A few too may interlude's as well, in my opinion.
Still, I think this album is still very well put together!

4.0 out of 5 stars Common is an MC Jan. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
One Day it will all make Sense is a very mature hip hop album. This project covers issues in the black community, relationships, family and a vision for tomorrow. How many MC's can take you on this type of journey and still rip the MIC....

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Original. Jan. 7 2003
By Karl
Format:Audio CD
I heard somebody say that 1997 was not a good year in hip hop. I disagreed with the sentiment then, and I definitely have to disagree with it now. Before I even get started talking about this album, just let me tell you what the bottom line is: go buy this right now.
I'll wait. You can read this when you get back.
Now... where were we?
Ah, yes. One Day It'll All Make Sense. Now, let's see, what can I say by way of introduction? One Day It'll All Make Sense is by The Artist Formally Known As Common Sense (apparently, it's just Common now). He first made a big splash with "I Used to Love H.E.R." a single about how hiphop had evolved from fun-lovin' party music topolitically aware messages from the heart, head and street, but had begun to slide into gangsta-inspired nihilism.
That single managed second place in the Phattest Single, Phattest Lyric, and Phattest Crossover Single categories of the 1994 New Jack Hip Hop Awards. As a rapper, Common was also nominated several times. Still, neither he nor his album, Resurrection, managed to take any awards home (although, the album did come in second for Most Slept On).
I think this year will be different. Let me tell you why.
Apparently, all the writing and guest spots he's done since (most notably with De La Soul on Stakes Is High) has not only helped him to hone his skillz, but something over the past few years has taught him the benefits of honest reflection. With One Day It'll All Make Sense, he has moved beyond being an MC who can make a damn good single every once in a while to a full-fledged hip hop leader. This album is not only consistent, it is absolutely amazing. The production is on point. The lyrics are creative. The flow is all that and a homemade Southern meal at Grandma's house.
