The Intro is one of the best joints on the album. I'm not sure how the beat is "corny" maybe it is just you because you're the only one that I've ever heard apply that word to that song.

Really? You can tell from Be that Common was going to drop UMC? Yea, I'm going to have to classify that under bullshit. The albums are nothing alike. and LOL @ calling the intro corny and then stating Go regained your faith in Common.

I agree Its Your World is a great track, but Love Is is very Common-like and no one should be mad at that joint. The beat was greatness. Com write a dope track that fit the beat. I swear people just talk to talk on this site.

The Light is the first time Com got mainstream success. and I don't know why you keep mentioning UMC because that album didn't make noise in the mainstream at all. I'm still confused as hell as to how you keep mentioning Be and UMC like they're one in the same.
