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

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.Read more ›
I often wondered while listening to this album, "is Common trying too hard to be a Good Guy?" Or better yet, is he trying to be a little too soulful? I very much appreciate his ability to integrate soulful, funky music with his almost perfect lyrical prowess, but on "One Day" he seems to overdo it. Did he feel that because he was about to become a father, he should stop writing fun raps about everyday life and start concentrating on things like religion and family? Ah, yes, the old "he's more mature now" issue. Sounds familiar. Fans of Common love it when he just goes off on a freestyle binge or when he spits fascinating, complicated rhymes that you can listen to over and over again and pick apart. But "One Day" left me feeling a little unfulfilled in that department. Witness the first track, "Introspective," on which he spends about a minute and a half introducing the album as if it's going to change the world. "Invocation" and "Hungry" give us a reminder of what he can do when left alone with just a beat and a microphone.
But Common loaded up on collaborations this time around, and most of them emphasized the deeper, almost R&B-esque elements of his music. Several songs are practically piano ballads. Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, etc. each add a nice touch, and none of them really overshadows him... but it made the album feel very busy, and distracted me from Common himself.Read more ›

With this album Common attempts to take on a masterful and rather large concept. Each individual song is to be respected along with how it fits in the albums overall picture. Read morePublished on June 28 2002 by AG
Common doesn't worry to much about keeping a gangsta persona alive. He tells what he knows and it turns out as another great album.Published on March 25 2002 by Sean
