Wow, all of a sudden I have VERY high expectations for his new album The Dreamer/The Believer (dropping December 20). I can tell Common is definitely striving to make this a true piece of collective art…which is appropriate considering how average his last album was. I already really enjoyed Common’s first single Ghetto Dreams, but I like this one even more. I have a feeling this will be a very diverse album. Can’t wait to get it!
There is a light that shines, special for you and me.
Darling, open your eyes.
You may never find a love that’s right.
As epic enough as Common’s song, The Light is with this sample, I must admit, honestly, that the original song, Open Your Eyes, is just as equally amazing. Also, Bobby Caldwell is just a genius. So, it is only expected that this song is a piece of beautiful art.
