Product Description


His second album finds Eminem struggling to contain the pressures of success. And he's dealing it with it disgracefully. The Detroit rapper's multiple identities are more mixed up than ever, with Marshall Mathers fighting for prominence against his alter egos: Eminem, Slim Shady, Kenneth Kaniff and his public image. Don't be fooled by the album title: apart from the eponymous "Marshall Mathers" (which runs the lyrical gamut from maudlin to maniacal) you won't learn too much about "the real Slim Shady" here. As fiction bleeds into reality, Eminem aggravates the wound to increase the flow. The Dr Dre/Mel-Man productions on this record don't have the slap-happy bounce of those from the Slim Shady LP; all drums and bass, they're ghostly, minimised slabs of roto-funk. Except, of course for the gleefully self-referential single "The Real Slim Shady", for which Dre appropriately cuts in some of the picked-guitar from his own "Forgot About Dre". Eminem's own co-productions with F.B.T. veer from the bounce to the ounce of "Drug Ballad" to the full-metal jacket of "Kim", where you get to find out all the gruesome details of how Eminem's paramour ended up in the back of that trunk (from Slim Shady's "'97 Bonnie and Clyde"). And believe me, it ain't pretty. If anything there's a lesson to be learnt here: money, success, drugs, murderous intent, mental trauma and schizophrenia are all just as American as apple pie. --Chris Campion

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ALBUM LIKE THE HUMAN MIND 8 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
An album that is truly harrowing and dramatic. An album which is also fantasically comical and self-deprecating. Eminem is possibly the most intelligent contempory artist in music today. This album is brilliant and every music lover should own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing 7 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wow! This album broke down boundaries like no other in recent times. I'm a heavy metal fan & don't really enjoy rap, hip-hop or whatever u wanna call it.

But this one blew me away. Before this i thought eminem was a comedy act. The album is stunning though. It's not just rap, it's a masterpiece in storytelling. Young Marshall certainly had a lot on his mind & what a way to let it out!

This is not rap, rock, pop or any kind of stereotype, it's a modern day popular music masterpiece. Stan is amazing & without it, a dull lady called Dido wouldn't have ever appeared (Marshall - report to my office now!!!). Still, complete & utter genius.

It's a work of art. Stan is one of my top 3 tracks ever and, coming from a metal fan, this is saying something.

This album transcends genres, race and generations. It's just a shame that M&M hasn't gotten close to this kind of quality since :(

I first got this album when I was in school, I liked back than more because it for the swearing and general incorrect content. Fast-forward about 5 years I found my copy of the album, listened to again. This time I saw past the lyrical content to discover a mature, complex, funny and disturbing look at how being an obscure unknown no name rapper to being trusted into fame.

His first release "The Slim Shady LP", is defiantly underrated, but this blows away anything that eminem has ever done. The rhyming in this album is on another freaking planet, honestly, there are many moments when I sat there awestruck at how he got those words to rhyme, its insane.

As well as eminem coming up with amazingly good lyrics, Dr. Dre and Mel Man's production is outstanding, as always.

And usually for a hip-hop record, none of the skits on here misfire because he uses them rather sparingly.

Regardless of the type of music that you listen to this is an album that you really should have in your record collection, because its just a damn good album that transcends the genre, and is the prefect antidote to all those bling bling merchants rapping about their house, their car and their wealth this guy has something to say which is very refreshing to hear.

I got the UK version which contains an extra track entitled "The Kids" which I am sure most fans of his have heard by downloading, I think that it should have made the cut on all the regions, as I love the way that it has really dark lyrics, but is rapped like nursery rhymes, you laugh at the song, even though you know you really should be horrified at.

The release of The Marshall Mathers LP must have driven a whole bunch of Eminem-haters crazy because, with this second album, Eminem proved he was here to stay. In my opinion, this is the best of Eminem’s first three albums, taking the rap and hip-hop up more than a few notches from the already lofty heights attained in The Slim Shady LP. This artist’s unique personal flair really bursts forth here, giving us beats and rhymes much more complex and musically adept than what had come before. In addition, Eminem has by now thoroughly come into his own. He is intentionally courting controversy, daring his critics and those who would love to have him censored or simply locked away somewhere to step outside with everything they have. Those who will look underneath the violence and the swearing and the offensive remarks Eminem makes in his lyrics will find a deeply complex person with something important to say, a man who does, in his own special way, highlight the kind of real problems many young people face in the modern world, and the accusing fingers he points in all directions often serve to highlight the problems inherent in the individual and society itself. And, as he is wont to say, he is the only person brave enough to say these things.
This album hits the floor running with Kill You, a track announcing to the world Eminem’s confidence in himself and rejection of authority and criticism. This level of comfort and confidence proves a great boon to the next track Stan, a song in which he reverses roles and plays the innocent good guy who is too late to help a deeply troubled fan.

Ok, so Eminem swears too much and holds some opinions most of us would disagree with wholeheartedly. Look past this and all the controversy and you will see a very talented musician and lyricist. The Marshall Mathers LP is raw, powerful rap music at its best.
Eminem is a brave musician who is not afraid to speak what he feels, whether we agree with him or not. In these days of political spin and image it is refreshing to see such openess and honesty. One of Eminem's qualities for me is that he is never afraid to mock himself and does so on all his albums. The humour in this album, brought by Eminem's quick wit and skill for impression is second to none. The Real Slim Shady is a prime example of this, and the South Park take off "Kids" at the end is hilarious. It contrasts with the darker moments to make them even more powerful. The highlight of the album is undoubtedly Stan - a brilliant original piece of music with some of the most powerful, frightening lyrics you are ever likely to here. However, almost every song on the album is strong, although I am not a fan of Amityville. Kim is a very disturbing song and not easy to listen to but it is certainly powerful and makes you think.
Unfortunatly events like Eminem describes on this album, such as in Kim, happen in the real world and I think it is brave and quite right of Eminem to remind us all of this. Who said music had to be easy listening, or that you had to agree with everything an artist does? The Beatles advocated taking drugs - I couldn't disagree more with them but it does not mean their music is not of value. Ok, so Eminem is more extreme than most, but then so is society these days. Perhaps we need the likes of Eminem to wake us up to reality these days.
Musically the album is flawless.
