Product Description

CD The Slim Shady LP Aftermath Entertainment, 490 287-2 IND-90287, 1999, 20 Track

Amazon.co.uk

On The Slim Shady LP, Eminem wants it all. He is conflicted, you see; the world has treated him badly, and he wants to respond in kind. But he isn't a straight-up gangsta--this is, after all, the first release on Dr. Dre's Aftermath Records, his post-Death Row-era venture--and Eminem (born Marshall Mathers) doesn't really want anyone to follow in his footsteps, which leads to some interesting contradictions on this album. In the first single, "My Name Is", he's self-deprecating, rapping about his poor upbringing and his hairy palms. But on the very next song, "Guilty Conscience", he plays the devil to Dr. Dre's angel--that is, until Eminem brings up an incident from Dre's devilish past, rapping, "You gonna take advice from someone who slapped Dee Barnes?" Later, on "'97 Bonnie & Clyde", he turns Will Smith's "Just the Two of Us" on its ear, making it a tale of murder; but on "My Fault", he actually feels bad--though whether it's for the girl he overdosed or for himself is tough to figure out. With his nasal Midwestern tone, Mathers has a clean, clear flow, and the production--by Dr. Dre, Marky, and Jeff Bass--is crisp but consistently fun. Eminem has some serious skills, and he makes for some great tunes--but the lyrics are as morally reprehensible as they get. --Randy Silver

I am for the most part a very conservative person, and those who know me would probably never imagine that I am a devoted Eminem fan. When The Slim Shady LP came out in 1999, I heard a lot about it, but I had almost no exposure to the music itself. The only song I really heard at the time was the radio version of My Name Is, and that little ditty seemed to have "gimmick" written all over it. I expected Eminem to disappear from the music scene after a few months. I, like many people, was uninformed and wrongly dismissed this artist out of hand. Then, I actually listened to the man's music, and I soon realized that Eminem was in fact a musical genius. This first album is a little more bare-bones and gritty than The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show, but it is nonetheless nothing short of amazing. I am not exactly a big fan of rap or hip-hop, although I have wandered down those lanes a few times in my past, but Eminem actually transcends rap, creating a musical genre all his own that reaches out to even the most unlikeliest of places to win fans like me. Sure, the lyrics are explicit, but what I have come to realize is this: Eminem does not use the explicit lyrics to attract notoriety and sell albums; he uses explicit lyrics because he is expressing himself in a shockingly honest way, and what he gives us is his own version of truth and reality. He really does have something to say, and he says it in a way that speaks not only to the culture of the streets but also to boring conservative individuals like me.
I can't find a bad song on this album, although I'm not that fond of the Ken Kaniff sketch. Eminem does things with beats and rhymes that I have never heard anyone else do, using the very rhythm of his music as a further means of communicating his ideas and feelings.

Eminem is one of the most contraversial, verbally shocking and talented rappers in years. The message behind his album is not one of killing, destruction and mayhem but a sly, sarcastic look at pop culture as it exists today. Don't take his lyrics at face value and PLEASE buy the uncensored version of the album as if you don't know what he's saying, you miss out on what he's all about.

I have an eclectic music taste but I have never really got past Will Smith when it comes to rap. However, I had heard a lot about Eminem and decided to see what all the fuss was about. I wasn't disapointed. He brilliantly manages to combine the funny tracks (e.g. Guilty Conscience and 97' Bonnie and Clyde) with the hard-hitting stuff (e.g. Role Model, Rock Bottom and Still Don't Give a F**k). He even manages to mix it up in the same track, My Fault and My Name Is being perfect examples. Of course, you could get caught up in just the lyrics and forget about the music. Fortunately, most of the tracks have a brilliant rhythm and tune to go with the words, although If I Had and My Fault fall down slightly on this front.
An essential purchase not just for the rap fan but for any music fan who wants to broaden their horizons. The best album of 1999.

Do you want to be blown out of your mind? This is certainly the best album ever. Every track is unique. The most hard-hitting and amazing fact about this album is that as he was composing it with Dr Dre he was still right on the edge and really going through a lot of the sh*t he raps about, he really was broke, engaged to Kim and barely able to pay rent. This is why it is so personal - and the music totally gets to you. Best tracks include 'Brain Damage', 'Role Model', and 'Rock Bottom'. Despite his bad situation, and being sick of not being recognised for his talent - he manages to take it all in his stride and adds loads of humour. This Hip Hop album is pure DOPE - Eminem proves all he needs for a sick album is genuine raw talent. Listen to this - and appreciate rap.

Already knew the album is good, but wanted it on vinyl.

I payed full price, expecting a new copy to be sent.

The record showed up, but came with scratches and a hair on the top of it. Was not pleased at all, especially as this was my first record. May as well stick to digital like everyone else my age if that's how records usually turn up.

This review is late, but I did not know how to send it back and it's now out of the 30 days.

If you're reading this and have had similar experiences, please send it back. It's not fair on the customer at all.

Explicit lyrics are just written off by some people as pointless. Eminem uses a lot of pretty messed up language and talks about messed up things, but however sinister they may sound, he is an absolute genius at telling stories through music, speaking his mind in his lyrics. I heard this album as a kid 10 years ago, and having purchased it again as an adult, I can truly understand why this man is rated so highly. But my words don't do his music justice, you need to listen carefully to his lyrics to understand just how good Eminem is.

This is eminem's best album. Best tunes and best lyrics.

However dont buy the non-explicit version, as the bleeps / word changes, completely spoil it.

Buy this album..... but buy the explicit version (5 stars).
