    Tambersauro: Theories of Delusional Origin

    Common: Universal Mind Control

    Despite his status as a happy, respected old-timer, Common has to rap about something, and his eighth album, Universal Mind Control, is a hodgepodge effort. It contains would-be club bangers full of metaphysical mumbo-jumbo such as the title track (...
