ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Common Sense is no secret to any avid music fan.
Their World Pop/Reggae American Funk Rock style combines their unique personalities and songwriting perspectives.

Often compared to artists like Sublime, Common Sense draws its influences from a vast array of artists such as Bob Marley, who's uniquely crafted grooves and songwriting structure changed the world of music. The Beatles, who's influence is easily found in the group's clear and distinctive harmonies. As well as elements of Marvin Gaye and the overall Motown Sound, which lends itself to the foundation of the smooth Funk/R&B based composition found in many of their songs.

Common Sense's new self titled album, features the overall theme for the need to stop and celebrate and reflect upon the various aspects of our lives. For example, Rise Up, a tribute to Bobby Sheehan of Blues Traveler, reminds us of the importance of realizing in the death of a friend, that life around us goes on. While we should not or do not want to forget, we should focus our attention on celebrating our life and the past lives of others.

This theme is continued in Sweet Life. The group's own reflection upon the time they have spent together over the past 10 years. A time in which they have built a strong resolve for never giving up on one's dreams and beliefs regardless of what others around you may say or think. Overall, it is a statement of appreciation and enjoyment of all the time they have spent together over the years.

Common Sense is one of the most intriguing and successful artists in the music industry for one very simple reason. They are an band who's music immediately attracts and captures your attention. Once free from distraction, their reflections of life and what it is and should be about, you will recognize as your own.

Have successfully reinvented themselves
I've been a fan since back in the 90's and was happy to hear some new songs they recently sang at the Belly Up in Solana Beach. This album appears to reflect a deeper appreciation of what life has to offer. Love Summertime the best!

Common Sense--The Perfect Beach Day Disc
This cd introduces some great new sounds to Common Sense. Summertime is a classic beach song. Put this disc in and drink a margarita at the beach. Don't miss this disc if you looking for some new So Cal reggae sounds in you life.

Have wanted to own Common Sense music for over a decade now...
I have been a fan of Common Sense since college and it's nice to finally add a Common Sense CD to my collection. Pay The Man touched me live and the studio version doesn't dissappoint. Sweet Life and Summertime will become classics and Rise Up, Lose Yourself & Dance to the Riddum are solid tracks. I have owned this compilation for only a week and I've had the above songs stuck in my head the whole time. Most hit albums only have 2 to 3 hit songs. With the above six tracks and the others still growing on me...I'm extremely pleased with this purchase.

Full of Catchy tunes
Awesome cd in general. Smooth reggae beats underneath harmonious melodies create 14 tracks of catchy music. Great background music for a beach party or cruising on a summer day.
