This review is from: The Marshall Mathers LP (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 :(
