3.0 out of 5 stars Too Pop 12 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album can be summed up quickly and efficiently. As one of the top 3 rappers in history, Eminem always brings a nice flow alongside complex structures and multi's. However, since Infinite, The Slim Shady and Marshal Mathers LP's (his best albums to date in that order), his style has become pop both musically and (unfortunatley) often lyrically. On Encore this is the problem, the beats are predominantly weak, mostly fitting for children who tend to listen to the pop charts. His rapping, though still highly adequate and far better than the majority of other rappers, switches between too serious and too childish. I cannot help but think that if he applied himself properly to a set of strong hip-hop beats he could return to the form of Infinite, but he is consistently failing to do so and therefore has fallen off. There are so few genuinely talented rappers in the charts that Eminem is something of an enigma. On Encore he only manages to demonstrate a tiny sample of what he could have been if he hadn't turned so absurdly pop.

The reason that I give this album 3 stars is that Eminem still has amazing talent as a rapper, and if you can see past the beats and the subject matter then this is still very listenable to a fan of true lyricism.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, how the mighty fall. 2 Aug 2007
By dynamitekid156 VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
When you're one of the greatest rapping talents of all time, producing brilliant album after brilliant album, it gets harder and harder to impress, to maintain your usual standards or even push them higher as you have before. Encore, Eminem's comeback album after a two-year absence and a prolific 2002, had a great deal of expectation thrust upon, partly because of his previous high standards and partly because of his time off. Eminem, for one reason or another, was not up to the task.

Encore feels in so many ways like a reaction to his previous peak, The Marshall Mathers LP (2000) and its follow up, The Eminem Show (2002). Whereas those two albums showed him reaching artistic maturity, Encore finds him revelling in the immature toilet humour that punctuated debut album The Slim Shady LP. Where his last album saw Eminem's production reach new heights as far as complexity, texture and originality, Encore is an album made of skeletal beats and piano, a very dry production throughout. And where his previous albums were bursting with wit and originality, Encore is predominantly medicore and devoid of ideas.

There's a long way to fall from genius, but Encore is far worse than we've come to expect even from Eminem at his worst. It's not all bad; the sample from the song of the same name on 'Like Toy Soldiers' is used to the full (check out its video to see a worryingly prescient storyline involving D12 member Proof); 'Crazy In Love' uses a similar sample from Heart, but its chipmunk-speed is a depressing rip off of Kanye West's treademark; both 'Just Lose It' and 'Ass Like That' are hilarious, and even if the former is somewhat of a retread of the funnier 'Without Me,' the latter features one of his greatest insults to date - 'Britney Spears has shoulders like a man.

4.0 out of 5 stars buy it!!!!!!but you won't treasure it 10 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
i love most of this album because generally the songs are comical,political and fresh,but em has let the world down on certain songs with stupid voices,i am a true em and 2pac fan and i am worried that 2pac's new album loyal to the game will have poorly produced songs by eminem.buy the album because there are good songs,just don't expect another eminem show

3.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible with a few silly moments! 19 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The much anticipated return album, is a mixed bag of Eminem at his best and at his worst. Tracks like "Mosh" seething with righteous rage, the stirring/disturbing "Spend some time" and truly moving "Mockingbird" really shine through. Even the marching beat between the chorus refrain of "Like toy soiders" works well, even though on first listen it sounds like it shouldn't! People can knock "Just lose it", but it has a great melody and although Jackson is too easy a target, how can you wacth the video and not smirk?! However, "Puke", "Rain man" and "Big Weenie" are adolscent lyrical nonsense that fail to excite , let alone offend, accompanied by possibly the worst melodies Em has ever committed to disc! Thankfully they are sandwiched in the middle of the CD so you can neatly skip forward!The thing is Eminem has not made a truly consistent album since "the Slim Shady LP", although the excellent "Eminem Show" came very close. However, his albums are always worth getting for the truly great stuff that makes the bulk. This CD is no exception!

4.0 out of 5 stars ENCORE 18 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Eminem is one of the most controversial people in music today and thats because is so good at what he does so people are gonna end up hearing what he talks and raps about. The album is not his best but its certainly worth buying there are good and bad things about this album the good things are songs like Like Toy Soldirs, Mosh, Yellow Brick Road and Evil Deeds that realy show off his political and artistic skills, Big Weenie and ASS Like That are to of the funnist songs I have ever heard from Eminem. The bad things about this album are that it cuts of from being serious to silly to quickly some of the beats are to simaler and theres just not enough strong songs to call this another classic from eminem in a way it is his worst album but his other three are so good that even if it is his worst its still very good. I must say that i am a metal music fan but I cant help but like what eminem brings out hes talanted and you cant deny talent I fill that it doesnt always matter what music you do as long as your good at what you do.

This CD shows Eminem's comical side. Great dance songs on here! Obviously he's added a few serious songs, as he does. I love Mockingbird and Mosh. I love this album!
