The Dreamer/The Believer. Released December 20, 2011. The Dreamer/The Believer Tracklist. 1. The Dreamer (Ft. Maya Angelou) Lyrics. Common explained the direction of this album in a 2011 interview with The Boombox: It’s going to be positive hip-hop. Hip-hop that can really generate good spirit, the spirit of the music and just good energy. I’m excited about the album. I feel blessed that I got to work with No . I’m enthused to do hip-hop, which is something that I have to do when I feel it. It’s the spirit and energy of hip-hop that made you just enjoy it and love the music and not feel like, ‘Man, is this gonna sell?’ or ‘I sold this many.

Common bounces back from the low point of his career with his best album since 2005's Be. Produced by soul-rap veteran No . and featuring Nas, Maya Angelou, and John Legend, The Dreamer/The Believer has moments that recall the humanity and thoughtfulness of his mid-90s classics. Common is confused, and who can blame him? His career has stumbled in so many directions that confusion is kind of unavoidable. Toplam süre:50 min. 01. The Dreamer (feat. The Dreamer, The Believer.

The Dreamer, The Believer" прекрасный тому пример. Он играет настроением, заигрывает со звучанием, передаёт привет девяностым ("Ghetto Dreams"), оживляет лид-сингл сэмплом из Electric Light Orchestra ("Blue Sky"), создаёт атмосферу праздника в "Celebrate" - так можно вспомнить каждый трек на альбоме: слабые биты отсутствуют, как волосы на голове Common. Да и сам рэпер звучит живее и острее. How can I say this? Ah, fuck it, I’m the greatest" - глаголит бородач с сингла "Sweet"  . Maya Angelou 2. Ghetto Dreams feat. Nas 3. Blue Sky 4. Sweet 5. Gold 6.

This is Common’s first album in three years. Some critics gave Common’s last experimental album (Universal Mind Control) the ‘Electric Circus’ treatment. In reality however, both these envelope-pushing albums were great. Still, Common’s inspirational, feel-good spiritual rap is what fans like the best, and believe that it’s back in another classic album beyond your wildest dreams. Spurred by the scorching, hot, old-school to the artwork (look up the young Nas and Common single cover) summer single Ghetto Dreams, this album is big and is the legendary makings of this rap icon’s lasting legacy. As Common pitches for a collaboration with fellow . Music great John Legend, ‘The Believer’, book-ends the The Dreamer, The Believer album as well as The Dreamer opener does.
