Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 2000
It's no coincidence that most top 40 rappers are under 25: rap revels in misspent youth. Which makes Common's adventures in adulthood so interesting. He's an astounding lyricist, always has been. But with Like Water for Chocolate he's made the tricky transition from b-boy to b-man without losing the magic. Chocolate may be a mature album, but it ain't stern: hilarious, poetic, musical, and intensely personal, this is Common at his finest. --Lizz Mendez Berry

Like Water For Chocolate
The Genius | 09/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow is all i could say when listening to this album. Im sad to say my first Common album was Finding Forever, so when i heard this i was shocked to hear the subject matter on depth on this album. A Song For Assata well bring a tear to your eye if you really listen to this song, its quit moving. I heard it a few times not really listening, but i was reading the lyrics and that's when it really hit me. I wish Common would go back to this type of hip hop. The light is a nice laid back song, i love to play this and the ladies love it as well (just the mature ones). With Jay Dee on the board you can never go wrong. Cold Blooded it a personal favorite and who could forget The 6th Sense, which is the reason i picked this album up. Payback Is A Grandmother is a dope story telling track, i like it because it reminds me of a past event that happened to my family. Make sure you check out this album, classic is all i can really say.
