    It didn't seem to be posted yet. I really like it when his songs flow like this.

    Procane- sounds like you are another indie kid who never understood Eminem .


    p
    Well first you have to listen to his older music and compare it to the things he's doing now you get to see Em's career leave out the window guess that's why they call it window pain.

    While I'm able to find things to like in his newer work, I've always loved The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mather LP, and The Eminem Show. And that's also not to say that I think his newer stuff is bad, or anything like that. Those three albums seem to be the best albums for potential/new fans of Eminem.

    Those are my favorite albums from him... everything after has been hit and miss for me. I would add "Infinite" to that list since no one even knows that album exists and I love it.

    Em fell off a long time ago. He's not even homophobic, he just doesn't have shit to say except for trying to shock - which doesn't quite work anymore - and how great and relevant he is - while neither holds truth these days. Just quit.

    You do realize he's been saying the word faggot in his songs since infinite right?
    And we'll take a look at the album sales and see how washed up he is.

    He's been protesting against gay marriage since The Marshall Mathers LP at least. I remember that former friend cheering when he saw the clip for The Real Slim Shady...

    MMLP2 is available for streaming.

    My thoughts.

    The final third of the opening song and post-intro skit set the mood that this could be an interesting comeback. It is followed up by bland Garageband pop-rock/country production (neither Em, Dre, Bass Brothers, or Mr Porter contribute. You know... those kind of beats where you KNEW it was an Eminem song), corny love songs, cringe-worthy moments, and socially awkward overly dramatic emotion and yelling. Not better than Relapse, about the same as Recovery/Encore, possibly worse - the latter still considered one of the worst rap albums in history.

    Can't wait for Needle Drop/Dead End Hip Hop's coverage, and anticipating Myke C-Town's thoughts on Stronger Than I Was.

    I hate it when form/style overtakes passion, if that is the right word.

    I think Eminem is truly making his best work now. I think these last two albums are his best. His delivery is 1000 times better, almost like he is free styling. Every song feels like till I collapse off the Eminem show. I been waiting for him to make albums like this. Recovery is beyond good. This new album is right on par with his last.

    Absolutely loving the new album. Other than relapse I think all of his stuff is excellent (and even that had 5 or 6 excellent songs on it). Can't understand for the life of me people criticising recovery which I would say is his finest to date. As for the new one - i'm hearing some real variations throughout the album, certainly not samey at all - the usual mix of humour, some great aggressiveness, some real heartfelt songs. Love it. If you like Eminem you'll love this. If you don't then I guess you won't, and why are you even reading this?

    I'm impressed. I enjoyed the last two, but immediately love this record -- easily his strongest since The Eminem Show or the first Marshall Mathers LP. Good on 'M.

    I'm not the biggest Em fan but I have heard the new stuff. Rap God is by far the best so far.

    I'd put it somewhere between the two, definitely better than Eminem Show but it's too early to decide if it's as good as the SS or MM albums. I fucking love the opening song though, it's so fucking awesome.

    The songs released so far have been absolute garbage, really happy to hear the remaining tracks. Evil twin is incredible.

    Damn...there's some great shit on here.

    I love the choice of samples (Time of the Season(!), The Game of Love, Life's Been Good), and his flows sound pretty damn decent. There are a few throwaway tracks that seem like retreads though, and I don't know what to think of "Headlights" or "Stronger Than I Was".

    I'm going 7.5 on this one though... I thought that slapping the "MMLP 2" was not the smartest move, but I approve.

    If I was to rate like pitchfork I would give it a 9.3. Amazing release. Also I been listening to Eminem since Infinite so.......

    His first three under aftermath were good and showed a lot of potential but I always hated how gimmicky he was. In the last two releases he is showing his talent in every song.

    I loved his older material because it was honest, raw, emotional, and Em was in his own world as far as lyrics and delivery and tone. He pretty much became everything that he hated when it comes to commercial/mainstream radio garbage. I cannot stand when he tries to sing melody, or sing at all. It just doesn't fit the character he flawlessly created and it makes me cringe whenever I hear a song of that mood. I'll take a Stan type of delivery over that mushy stuff any day of the week. The songs that shine on MMLP2 shine, but the others that I do not care for.. I will probably never revisit again. Good follow up I must say because it's been hit or miss for me since The Eminem Show came out which I think is the last great album he made.

    Yeah, that's true. I wish he'd stop saying faggot all the time. It's just ignorant, not shocking.

    Eminem on SNL tonight, fucking lip syncing. Pathetic.

    Been a fan of his for a long time. Pot meet kettle.

    I'll break the mold here and come out and say that this album is a steaming pile of shit. Better than the last two albums? Of course, but that's not saying much, if anything, this album bears more in common with Relapse and Encore where he tries to regain the old edge that made him a star in the first place only to be a shell of the rapper he once was. I'm glad he sorta died down on the screaming on this record, since Recovery just featured him shouting on nearly god damn every song, but the whole album smacks of desperation, it's the sound of someone trying way too hard to prove he has the edge, when it isn't necessary, hearing a 41 year old man say "faggot" and trying to be shocking isn't anything, it's weird and clumsy and stupid.

    I also think the production on the album is very poor, this album has the weakest beats of any Eminem album and of any major label hip hop album this year, I understand that Shady was the producer for most of the album and oversaw a lot, so if anything, he's become too involved. I really wanted to like it, since Em was the artist for me in middle school and into high school, but there's not much positive I can add to it. Maybe him and Jay-Z can battle over who had the better attempted comeback album this year.
