Review Summary: An undeniable hip-hop masterpiece. The best album that Eminem has ever done.

This album by Eminem, may not be one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time, but it definitely is one of the most lyrical hip-hop albums ever, and one of the best hip-hop albums of the decade. He has an intricate rhyme structure, and brilliant wordplay that very few can defeat, and proves that you can be a super popular artist, and still be brilliant and witty at the same time. With this album, Eminem came back better then ever, and thought of some of the most clever, funny, brilliant lyrics hip-hop has ever seen. With this album, Eminem proved to be the best hip-hop artist since Jay-Z, which is a very hard title to claim. Though Eminem is no role model, which is something to keep in mind since he rhymes about drugs and violence alot, he still possesses alot of raw lyrical talent. Now let's get started with the track by track review.

1. Public Service Announcement 2000: A follow up to the intro on the Slim Shady LP.

2. Kill You: A great song that showcases Eminems raw lyrical talent over a great beat by Dr Dre. 5/5

3. Stan: The best song on the album, and the best song of Eminems career. This unforgettable song tells a story about a psychotic Eminem fan who eventually commits suicide. A brilliant song that features a great chorus by Dido. 5/5

4. Paul: Skit.

5. Who Knew: A funny song where he talks about how the media blames him for everything wrong with the world, over a great beat by Dr Dre. This song has been sampled in Don't Understand by Masta Ace. 5/5

6. Steve Berman: Skit.

7. The Way I Am: One of the best songs on the album, and one of the best songs of Eminems whole career. This one talks about how he doesn't regret the things he does, and talks about his personal life too. 5/5

8. The Real Slim Shady: A funny song where Eminem attacks celebrities in the media, in a funny way over a great beat by Dr Dre. One of the weaker songs on the album, but still a good one. This song has been sampled in Front 2 Back by Xzibit. 4/5

9. Remember Me: A great song, with great guest appearances by RBX, and Sticky Fingaz of Onyx, who each rhyme with Eminem over a great beat by Dr Dre. 5/5

10. I'm Back: A great song, with a great beat by Dr Dre. This song even has a censored line about the columbine shootings. 5/5

11. Marshall Mathers: The self titled song, is one of the best songs on the album. This song has Eminem rhyming brilliant lyrics over a great Dr Dre beat. This song even has a censored line about Fred Gibson. 5/5

12. Ken Kaniff: Skit.

13. Drug Ballad: One of the weakest songs on the album, but still is a good song. This song is basically a sequel to Cum On Everybody on the Slim Shady LP. 4/5

14. Amityville: One of the weakest songs on the album, but still a good song. The thing that makes this song one of the weakest is the fact that Bizarre of D12 is on it, and Bizarre sucks. 4/5

15. B**** Please II: This song features the best guest appearances, by Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Nate Dogg, and Dr Dre, who each rhyme over a great beat by Dr Dre. A great song. This song has been sampled in X by Xzibit. 5/5

16. Kim: The weakest song on the album, but still a good song. This song has Eminem killing his wife, and yelling throughout the song. 3/5

17. Under The Influence: One of the weakest songs on the album. The reason for that, is that the rest of D12 is on this song, and the rest of D12 sucks. This song is still good though. 4/5

18. Criminal: A great way to end this classic album. 5/5

Bottom line is, that this album is a classic.

Best 3 songs:
1. Stan
2. Marshall Mathers
3. Criminal

Weakest 3 songs:
1. Kim
2. Drug Ballad
3. Under the Influence

I think the username 'thecreative0ne' is meant to be ironic, because he lacks no creativity. I thought I was reading the same section over and over, but no, he just words everything exactly the same. What... is... this?

dude, stop reviewing and read more before you sit down and write your own stuff. these are rushed and they aren't of any good. also, one review per day, you're knocking others' reviews off the front page.

I'm convinced this is a joke. After 4 of these in a row, it HAS to be.

"16. Kim: The weakest song on the album, but still a good song. This song has Eminem killing his wife, and yelling throughout the song. 3/5"

Good to know Eminem killing his wife only gets 3/5, personally I'd give it 20 to life..

How many times do you need to tell us that he raps over a great beat by Dr. Dre?
