Guess who’s back? Yep, five years on from Encore, and after successfully battling a lengthy prescription-pill addiction, Slim Shady has returned with a new album. Produced by long-time collaborator Dr. Dre, Eminem once again wears his heart on his sleeve, namedropping a slew of prescription drugs and describing their dire effects in no uncertain terms. Opening cuts "3am", "My Mom" (about how he turned into a pill junky like his mum), "Insane" (about paedophilia) and the quirky "Bagpipes From Baghdad" see Em firing on all cylinders, combining disturbing imagery and wry humour over solid (if slightly less-than-fresh) beats from Dre. The second half of the record fares less well. "Same Song & Dance" sounds--ironically--tired; the singles "We Made You" and "Crack A Bottle" rely on obvious, glossy hooks; and the songs about smoking marijuana ("Old Time's Sake", "Must Be The Gangja") are generally unimaginative--the sound of boxes being ticked. Tunes like "Déjà Vu" and "Beautiful" raise the bar again though, and while Relapse is a mixed bag, it’s genuinely good to be listening again to what is still one of rap’s most potent voices

Rectal prolapse!!!

Good if you like him I guess,but I prefer M & M.

recovery was better but hot price

Not that I've listened to this (generally don't like Eminem's more recent stuff), but reviews across the board were that this is his worst album. I think even the man himself has admitted as much. Something to think about.

He also said the awful lil wayne would tear him apart in a rap battle...consider that (you prob don't care :P)

I got this and didn't take to it straight away but after a few listens it grows on you sure not his best album but this has a few great tracks on it .

I agree its not one of his best, but if you can get his new one "recovery" his best to date in my opinion

Yep I agree this album is quite weak but recovery is excellent. Still a good price so I have added heat.

Real hip hop fans wouldn't think 'Recovery' is his best album, great price for this album though.

Heat added

recovery is an awful awful album,relapse was his best since the slim shady album

Real hip hop fans



I stopped reading when I got to that point as I know anything started with this sentence will just end up with a 1 sided view.

Great price with regards to the post though, can't say I like even 1 of his songs though.

violentj you speak the truth! real fans of eminem appreciate the darker side of his work. All the commerical stuff lovers will find recovery better
