it's really obvious that finding forever isn't very good, doesn't take massive amounts of understanding of the genre. this, of course, is a continued extension of that downward suckage spiral.

and the lame part is, this record will probably sell more copies than any of his other albums. which just proves that, in fact, the average person doesn't know anything about good music

Soby, I think you are the one who knows nothing of hip-hop if you can't respect someone enjoying a fine album made by one of the most respected MCs in the entire genre. Finding Forever is worth a listen no matter what kind of rap fan you are.This Message Edited On 12.14.08

Soby, Finding Forever is a relaxing album with perfect flow that appeals to many, many rap fans. For you to say that a person knows nothing of hip-hop because of his/her liking that album then you're elitist and confused about the actual people who listen to this stuff. You're opinion is hardly reasonable and you make no effort to prove why Finding Forever = bad hip-hop, so its the opinion coming from your keyboard that actually means nothing and shouldn't be taken seriously by anyone.

you're pretty enlightening, maybe you should be an anti-critic critic?

I'm only critical of critics who criticize in unnecessary, unreasonable ways.

why finding forever is bad;

'I never thought the day would come where I wouldn't care about a new Common album. For so long he's been one of my favorite MC's always with some great consistant albums always pushing of what hip hop could do. He's written some of the greatest introspective hip hop songs of all time he had to me a perfect track record. He was so dope that I treated BE as a disapointment at 4 stars. I knew he could do better. Ironically this would become his most popular & acclaimed album, so many people only know Common from BE. Common was always an MC that showed much evolution but BE was him stepping backwards and trying to go back to straigth beats & lyrics (Ressurection style but with Kanye on the boards). Judging from the first singles this wasn't going to be much diferent from BE but it is. All the songs are very hook heavy and are all very soft, the album might as well been called "Finding Flowers". The hardest song on the album "The Game" is Kanye trying to immitate Premier (even invinting him for scratches), it's good but it ain't no 6th sense. There are 2 great songs on this, "The People" is wonderfully executed and "So Far to Go" but that one was already on Dilla's album "The Shining" last year. That song just rubs it in of how this album could have so much better if it was all produced by Dilla, cause it ain't feeling the over-produced softness of Kanye on this. I recognize the amount of work put on this beats but these shits don't bang at all. The drums are weak, and he doesn't even have dope claps like his early style. His ego is eating him in. And Common... Damn he's lazy as hell on this. It just feels like the same old same old but delivered with alot less passion, too many love joints. I tried, I tried but I just ain't feelin it. Common still remains one of my favorites but I'm not a fan of the 07 Common. This album has alot of sugar but not alot of vitamins, the more I listen to it the less I like it... I would only recommend this one to Justin Timberlake fans.'
