I'm not a big fan of Eminem, his new stuff (solo and D12) is horrible but this actually was a pretty OK album. Although I think the Slim Shady LP is better.

I hate rap, and I hate eminem, but pretty decent review, I would say... well, not bad at least. I think u sucked up to the album quite a bit, but sucking up to an album doesn't even make any sense, so nevermind...

i hate rap in almost all of its forms but there are 3 artist in rap music that i respect Eminem is one of them(black eyed peas and public enemy are the others...if any one gives a SHlT). this album (except for a few songs) was has a phonomenal amount of whitt to it and pretty much broke down all the ruels of rap music.

Heh....you two (Bartender and Iai) have some of the most diverse tastes on this board. Good on you! :cool:

The Marshall Mathers LP was almost too heavy for me to take, but I definetly respect Eminem a good deal for what he did with it. It's incredibly powerful stuff, but almost too much...I have to be really in the mood for it to be able to handle it. Still, I agree that it's a great album of its own regard, highly groundbreaking and very important. Hopefully...maybe, just maybe, the rest of the rap world will catch up to the few brilliant artists and give us something worth listening to in the mainstream again.

Eminem's become more...comical and mainstream with his newer releases in my opinion. His songs from The Eminem Show onwards are so radio-friendly. I hope Encore is a decent album.

this album is comparable to nevermind in that many didnt see it as brilliant and genius on release however its impact was so great despite this. i still believe this album is the best piece of music that eminem has released as he was a relative unknown at the time and there was no pressure from the media etc, it was pure unadulterated marshall mathers. i must say everything pretty much after this album i have hated from eminem which has lead to me disliking an artist who was once one i truly enjoyed.

Surely that would be the Slim Shady LP.

I'm starting to like Eminem's stuff more lately, it just puts me off that all the homie fags listen to him. And Stan is such a **** song, it was overplayed to death over here in Australia

4/5 for this beast, I think 'The Way I Am' is his best song yet, and a real testament to his supreme skills

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

I assume you didn't give it a rating becuase it is impossible to come up with a rating bad enough for this album.

Good work soldier!

^ 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:

[/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.

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."
