    Just got finished listening to this for the first time (yea I said it), zero skippable tracks. Nothing but heatrock.

    I don't use the word often, but Classic?

    MmmmmHmmmm... I used to wake up in the morning and watch the video for BE.

    Would put me in a good vibe, which would often be broken down by the time my 2nd class started [​IMG]

    The last min 1/2 of Faithful is some of thee most beautiful music ever made regardless of genre. Legend/Bilal going back to back harmonizing with that sample.Indescribable. I can't tell you how many times I've rewound just that min+

    I'll give it that label.

    Probably his best work IMO.

    It's good front to back.

    Ya'll also slept on UMC but I don't care cause NT doesn't like anything.

    Great ++++*%# album. Top to bottom. You could say "classic" and I wouldn't argue. Intro is crazy.

    "Go" is inspirational. Cake nailed it as well. The end of "Faithful" is some beautiful %@$!.

    But "The Food" live on Chappelle's Show smokes the album version.

    [​IMG] 'Ye and Common is one of the best duos in hip-hop. Be is by far Common's best work in my opinion.

    Son I'm on my way to my 3rd class and just went through the cd on the ipod for like the 8th time [​IMG]

    Only gripe from me, I wish it wasn't so short.

    Kanye got foolish on here, with the verses and the beats [​IMG]

    Any other Common worth giving a listen?

    when it came out i said it was boring, and today, i say the same thing. it's a good album, but i don't feel it's incredible.

    the fine wine approach has not worked for this record.

    edit- the food that i have is from the chappelle show, did they change the version after the album came out?

    if you're looking for more common, i suggest like water for chocolate, and resurection.

    i'm not even a Common fan. the only albums i like from him are BE and Finding Forever.

    but BE is amazing. Classic without a doubt. the vibe from that album is something else

    I love this album. "Its your world" is my favorite cut. Ye and Com came correct with this effort.

    Be is a classic album IMO.

    I think I've played Be(Intro) over 135 times.

    Did we get different versions of the album???
    "The Food" on my CD IS the Chappelle Show performance.

    I thought the full studio version was only released as a single/Internets...

    Kanye's best production IMO and the pinnacle of Com's career. Very classic.
