I almost feel obliged to lay out my Eminem credentials before submitting this review. Like a great many, I was a huge fan until D12 World and Encore, both of which lost me with silly accents, juvenile subject matter and a fixation more on controversy and messing around than on creating great music. The first two singles didn't inspire me with much hope; 'Crack A Bottle' is a poor song, inflicting yet more Fiddy on us all and so radio friendly that the legends of rap must have been turning in their graves. 'We Made You' isn't much better, and it wasn't until '3AM' that I really started paying attention. I have no desire to run Eminem down for the sake of it, but I don't have any motivation to say he's great when he's not, either. I'll judge what he does on it's own merits. Besides, Eminem has traditionally released the worst songs first, and this time round is no exception.

First of all, let's discuss the production. Dre really shines on this release; the production values and beats are crisp and drives the album on. Fingers crossed the long-awaited Detox will be as easy on the ears as the production on this release. We're mercifully spared a long list of Shady/Aftermath artists so it avoids becoming a promo CD for the label's latest cash cows. We do have to endure 50 Cent reminding us all why we jumped ship after 'Get Rich', but other than that, it's just Dre on one other track and that's it.

Now, the all important question; has Em returned to the flow, the anger, the wordplay and the hook that got those with some roots in this game excited back in the day? The answer, yes and no. There are flashes of both persona's here. Yes, there are too many lyrics delivered in the ridiculous and unwelcome 'weird accent' thing he mistakenly thought was so funny throughout Encore.

What a massive comeback album! From the fast-paced lyrical prowess of "3 a.m." to the almost pop-friendly "Crack a Bottle" which features rap heavyweights Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. Favourite songs on the album have got to be: "Hello", "Same Song & Dance", "Beautiful" and the first single "We Made You". Only disappointing factor on the album for me is the inclusion of "My Mom" - which, in my humble opinion, is a disatrous attempt from Slim Shady to verbally attack his mother (whether it's true or false what he sings). Worth buying definitely! Better than Encore and D12 World but nowhere near as a masterful and compelling as The Marshall Mathers LP. Long live you Em, you rule man!

Having first really got into Em just before Encore I had to go backwards to experience his previous work. From then TSSLP became my favourite with TMMLP following just behind. I thought that the eminem show was good but not there with either of the 2 previous albums, however I felt that encore was as good as the eminem show.

This album is very similar to TSSLP in terms of Em's feelings and the way he expresses them, but for me RELAPSE cannot be compared to any of his other albums. It is mind blowing, terrifying, inspiring, homophobic and controversial all at the same time; but in a different way from the rest of his work.

RELAPSE is not for everyone, many long time slim shady fans will hate it and others will name it his best album he's ever made. Personally I think that this is an album worth of legendary status but that it will never achieve it due to its lack of chart toppers, a must buy for any Em or hip hop fan. One thing is for certain.

Slim Shady, Ken kaniff and Eminem are back; in that order.

There are some really good songs on this album but there is something missing from it I dunno what it is There is something that just doesn't feel as good as the eminem show album or even Encore. Maybe there is a lack of humour or something I not sure what it is But at least he has since made some much better albums. It is not a bad album there are som really good songs on it but unlike his other albums I have found it less engaging the lyrics have been less interesting and intelligent I think also his tone is the same all the way through it too which is not normal for Em

After purchasing this album I can say that I have made a great choice of buying 'Relapse', due to it featuring many excellent songs and material that have all made up for this incredible album!

My decision to buy this album was a great one and I would surely recommend this many fellow Producers and Rap/Hip Hop enthusiasts period!

relapse is a very dark album, but in my opinion it is his absolute best because each track tells a story and relates to his real life drug addictions combined with the now deceased and missed proof, eminem's best friend.

tracks such as stay wide awake, and same song and dance are absolutely chilling and among the best on the album.

eminem in my opinion has released excellent albums in the past but they always contained some filler tracks that i always found i skipped or ignored as much as i could. relapse is the first album he made where i listen to it from start to finish without any dislikes for any of the tracks, all of them are great with excellent bass and treble.

i been listening to eminem since marshal mathers LP and despite my love for that album, i will always go with this one as my favourite. i absolutely hate his newer albums tho. recovery was awful, and Marshal mathers LP2 is nothing like it should have been... just a famous artist cashing in on a famous old album using the name and artwork and the music resembling nothing of it what so ever. i also highly dislike his incorporation of pop artists like rihana on tracks like the monster.

he was a great artist... well he still is, but his latest work leaves me with a big question mark. relapse in my opinion is unique, original, and the pinnacle of his career. he dropped the ball on encore and comes back with this and its like BOOM... wasnt expecting that, but he did it. i just wish he continued his style from MM LP, slim shady, and relapse. oh well..
