Here's the conversation....
Notice the difference? In case you were wondering...no, that definetly doesn't mean you're "ahead."
^ That made no sense.
Anyway, this is a good album. Not really that mind blowing. It hasn't had much infulence over rap either in my opinion.
I think he was trying to say (In his distorted, mongoloid way) that I was lagging behind on the conversation.
In that case, I will have to quote the review so his single brain cell can crank out an analysis of what it was I posted.
I have heard a lot of the new Eminem cd, and I must say that it is the same **** he's been making all along. There is one song that my roomate constantly plays about getting hard over all these teen icons like the olson twins. It is absolutely stupid, and considering that he is much older than these girls, it's kind of creepy.

Actually, I was pointing out that you were WAY off in your assessment.
Here's the review that you obviously didn't read:
Based upon your track record, I'm going to assume that you're going to fail to read it again, so I'll point out a few important bits in order to aid in understanding the reviewers' thoughts and opinions regarding the album:
[quote=from the review you didn't read]
Perhaps the influence of this album can be put to words by the reader's comment on Q's Top 100 Albums Of All Time. 'It made me give a **** about music again.' That's exactly what this album did for me. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Before this, I saw music as being one of three things - unintelligible noise, boring, or for little kids. Sometimes all three. Then this album came out.
It still amazes me how well this album did, commercially. It's witty, intelligent, and not easy to listen to. Those aren't qualities you tend to associate with a 15-million seller. Eminem resolutedly HATED pop music. The moment this album dropped, he BECAME pop music. The face of the charts changed. Just as symbolic as Nirvana displacing Michael Jackson, Eminem displaced Britney Spears in the Billboard charts. [/quote]
Sounds like a pretty positive review, eh? Now, let's take a look at what YOU said:

Eminem! The king, hero, icon, and role-model of all wiggers in the world...

Good work soldier!
[/quote] Now, from a scale of 1-5, 1 being worst, 5 being spot on, how would you rate your assessment of the reviewers' opinions towards the Eminem release? (Hint: the answer isn't from 2-5)
So, yeah...I'd say you were pretty far off.
Oh, is that what you meant. I knew the guy liked the album - I was just trying to piss people off and state my opinion all at once. Looks like it worked
PS: I knew he would like it becuase I know what Iai likes. You are correct that I didn't read the whole review... It would be like saying "Jeezus, I hate this movie so much, it makes be puke" and then going and reading the script of the movie.

It must be said, Dargon, you are an elitest cunt - but the place wouldn't be half as fun without you.
In other words, you were trolling...in a distorted, mongoloid kind of way.
Not so much, I did have a point, which was that I think Eminem is a massive, heaping pile of steaming dog sh.it and that his influence over society is greatly distorted - I can say with confidence that the only Eminem song I have ever heard is that insanely popular one that goes "guess who's back, back again" etc, and that is not off of this album.
Therefore, though the review stated that it was not likely ANYONE hadn't heard this album, it is a fact.
I like this album. I think anyone who listens to it can like it. If you hate it because you are hardkhor and will never listen to rap, and haven't listened to it, then that is your business. I usually don't say music sucks, and especially if I haven't even heard it.
i gotta say i think this is eminem at his best. this was the only one of his albums that i cared enough about to listen to thoroughly. tracks i would recommend are kill you, bi[I][/I]tch please II, and drug ballad. and on a side note, the ken kaniff skit from this album is a shot at insane clown posse. they have had an on going "beef" with eminem for quite a while, and i believe this (as well as the verse in marshall mathers about wrestler guys/clowns/faygo root beer) is his response to their crack at him - "slim anus" so its not really out of place in music, its just him sayin "i know you are but what am i."
The thing is, the song ICP had up on their website for just a day ("Eminem Ain't Nothing But a Bitch", or something similar - they took it down to avoid legalities) was actually really good.
On a side note, does anyone have that song? I used to have it, but I lost

yeah i have it. thats actually the song they wrote to get back at eminem for the stuff he did on marshall mathers lp. you can find it on icp's cd forgotten freshness volume 3. and slim anus is on a pretty rare album of theirs psychopathics from outer space part I...if anyones interested.
Thanks. Maybe I can track it down again now.
no problem. anything else you want by them let me know i probably have it.
Wait, ICP has a good song? What's it called again? :lol:
Album Rating: 4.0
clown love yo.
eminem is so shi t it is unbelievable y do ppl even buy his CDs???????????????? i meen i have friends who r obsessed with eminem and it is like get a life! if u wna b obsessed with sum1 b obsessed with sum1 gud! i wud never buy anything ever 2 do with eminem b coz he is so crap
I just rediscovered this album, I bought it on my 12th birthday and span stan untill i could imitate every pencil scratch. I mainly just listened to the singles, and in time they were released to the UK and people loved them, but I was moving on to other stuff.
I seen a program on MTV yesterday explaining how the album came about etc, was pretty interesting so i gave the album a quick dust off and gave it a spin all the way through. Eminem's flow is just so interesting throughout this album, Dre's beats own too. But what makes this album so special is the emotion mentioned in this review, especially in Kim, Stan and Marshall Mathers.
Not many artists can capture emotion like this, this album deserves 5/5. The dark atmosphere is interrupted slightly by the skits and 'the real slim shady', but 'the real slim shady' was essential for this album to take off.
