In the unfortunate situation that a product is damaged/faulty/incorrect, let us know and we will endeavor to correct any issue as soon as possible. Picayune flaws aside, the album's appeal stems from Common's passionate honesty. This invigorating trait means ballads like "Love Is..." and "It's Your World" don't melt into mush. The former sees him talking tender over a sinuous J Dilla beat that layers airy Marvin Gaye vocal samples atop each other to sublime effect. "Some say that I'm a dreamer because I talk about it often/ Seen the hardest nigga soften with his homey in a coffin," he says, admitting his romantic weaknesses while concurrently highlighting the inevitable downsides of such boundless affections. The latter features an unflinching, detailed narrative chronicling a downtrodden Midwestern prostitute's sympathetic plight: "I remember in high school, she had a passion to sing/ Now she see herself in her casket in dreams."There are no skippable songs on Be, but one decision disrupts the album's admirably consistent 68-degrees-in-the-shade vibe: The inclusion of the "Chappelle's Show" version of "The Food". Though the live take has an intensity missing on the studio version (released on vinyl last year), the Chappelle introduction and opening and closing applause pull the listener out of Be's palpable Southside surroundings. The album would have been better served by a redone studio take on the tune, which had the potential to be one of Be's finest. Side D has a visible and non audible surface mark - the rest is a few paper scuffs and few hairlines - beautiful copy! The sleeve shows shelve- and ringwear, no split seams.
