So what is the album like, apart from that? If you like modern rap music, you WILL like it, there are some great tracks by Nas, Xzibit, 50 Cent, and of course Eminem, whereas the rest are good to okay.
All in all, it's an okay album, but not worthy of more than three stars due to the fact that I dont really consider it to be a soundtrack to the film.
This is a good CD with some great tracks, but a soundtrack to the movie it ain't.
To be honest, I didn't enjoy 'The Marshall Mathers LP' or 'The Eminem Show' anywhere near as much as 'The Slim Shady LP', 'Devil's Night' and the underground classic 'Infinite'. On those two albums, Em just seemed like he was trying too much to make his music commercially viable, and it turned out much less raw and fluent.
However, Marshall has put it all right with this. Definitely.
The opening track 'Lose Yourself' is the most obvious choice as a single, and that's why it is indeed, the first single. There's a heavy guitar driven base-line and a great piano riff to complement it. Em spits some great rhymes on this track about taking opportunities and getting taken in by the moment.
The second track is one of my personal favourites, 'Love Me', Eminem, Obie Trice and Shady Records new-boy 50 Cent carry this track entirely themselves as there is hardly any production at all. 'Love Me' is a song that takes the mickey out of all the current hip-pop songs about love, with some r'n'b singer praising this big ol' 'thugged out' rapper. Shady Records rip it up, they expose those sorts of songs for what they are - false.
Basically, that sets the tone for the rest of the album, there's some excellent moments provided by Nas, Jay-Z (Yes, a good song by Jay-Z recorded in the last 5 years!), more from Obie and 50 Cent, Xizbit, Rakim, Young Zee and others, but the real highlight of the album is the last 2 tracks. There's 'Run Rabbit', a fast moving hip hop roller coaster with no chorus, just Eminem going for like, 3 whole minutes, it's pretty incredible, and then there's the finest point of the album....
GANGSTARR. I don't know why they're on here, or how Eminem got them on here, but they are.... Read more ›
