  • To Pimp a Butterfly is a perfected version of this.
  • Might be my favorite Common album.
  • Electric Circus was designed as a sort of musical (and to a lesser extent, social) history "then and now"; a launching pad for hip-hop to veer off into any and every direction - from the Daisy Age to alt rap's "second wave" and beyond. Speakerboxxx / The Love Below received a lot of the plaudits that Electric Circus was cruelly denied... By emancipating himself from some of hip-hop's most tired platitudes and constraints and boldly diving into the centre of indie rock and neo-soul's rising crests, Common set himself up for a reaction of general indifference - as if he was betraying rap music rather than pushing it forward. It's weird to think that some people from the hip-hop community slated Electric Circus and branded Common a lofty, holier than thou-type of character as a result of EC. Look at the love Frank Ocean is getting nowadays. Time was unfair on Common...
  • man…

  • Although, "Like Water For Chocolate" was the album where I really became hip to Common, this was the album that really made me a fan. It blows my mind that some people hate this album.
