Resurrection (Common album). Resurrection is the second album by American rapper Common (at the time, who was known as Common Sense). It was released on October 25, 1994, by Relativity Records. Resurrection was entirely produced by No . who also produced the bulk of Can I Borrow A Dollar?). In 1994, the record was originally rated . mics in The Source. In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums.

The debut album from Common Sense, Can I Borrow a Dollar?, wasn’t a commercial success but he made his mark in the rap game and helped get more recognition for Chicago on the hip-hop map. Resurrection saw Common abandon the squeaky style he used on his debut and the production from the 2 pc DRK crew (No . and The Twilite Tone) had more of a jazz base. I even called the album Resurrection because, in many ways, I felt like I was dead to some people. People didn’t know about me. I remember looking at A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders cover and it had all the fresh, young dudes.

Now, as a sophomore album, Resurrection is a bit of an immature record. Common’s first record, Can I Borrow A Dollar, is a rap record built entirely around two factors: Common’s MCing, and pure fun. Resurrection, unlike his one dimensional debut, shows at least two dimensions throughout, but it’s still jumpy and a bit jagged in flow.

Resurrection" is the second album by American rapper Common (then known as Common Sense). Released in 1994 (see 1994 in music), the album received a great deal of critical acclaim, but not a significant amount of mainstream attention. Resurrection" was entirely produced by No . who also produced the bulk of "Can I Borrow A Dollar?"), and Ynot. The album is divided into two sections; the "East Side.

Common's sophomore release established a level of quality from the MC that carried through to his innovative work of the 2000s and 2010s. Spare, relaxed, jazz-laden grooves create a context for this Chicago rhyme-master to do what he does best, and in very few places on Resurrection do the verses leave listeners wanting. Narratives, metaphors, puns, and dazzling verbal wordplay are on offer throughout.

Reviews about Common - Resurrection (2):
NI_Rak
Better than I expected for $8 new on Amazon, just EXTREMELY quiet.
Agalen
Personally think this pressing sounds pretty great. No issues from my end. Bass and vocals all come through well on my system. As for Common's performance on Resurrection, it's hard to say that he doesn't bring it!! Production from No I.D. is really good all around. Not much to complain about on this LP from me. 4.5/5
