Amoeba Review

01/01/2015

Like Water for Chocolate, released in 2000, seemed to be Common’s coming out album. Although it was his fourth, it was the album that caught critic’s attention, earned him a first time gold record and brought him into the forefront of the hip-hop community. The track, “The Sixth Sense,” a commentary on finding truth within our culture, is the epitome of the hip-hop soul that makes up this album. “A Song for Assata,” for example, is introspective and smart, yet doesn’t shy away from talking about sobering urban realities. The he-said/she-said banter between Common and MC Lyte on “A Film Called (Pimp)” adds a nice dose of humor to the mix. Other collaborators and guest vocalists include D'Angelo, Mos Def, ?uestlove and even Common’s father, Lonnie “Pops” Lynne, who gives a heartwarmingly paternal narrative in “Pops rap III…All my Children.”
