Customer Review

on 11 January 2014
Although this is called 'Marshall Matthers 2' and some songs reference and build on the songs from that album - this shares far more with 'The Eminem Show' in it's sense of playfulness and fun.

Rick Rubin (aka The Beastie Boys) was a great choice of co-producer for lightening up proceedings and the retro wackiness of 'Bezerk', 'So Far'and 'Love Game' - all pay testament to that. The 100 words in 16 seconds in 'Rap God' still blows me away and 'Monster' is a deserved hit and offers a far less dark collaboration than we got with 'The Way You Lie'.

There are a couple of tracks that don't quite meet the bar - 'So Much Better', 'Brainless', 'Stronger than I was' - but they are nothing like the awful fodder tracks on 'Encore' (namely 'Rain Man' and 'Big Weenie' that sat incongruously alongside Em classics 'Like Toy Soldiers' and 'Mosh')and let's just forget the 'Relapse' album.

If you like his darker albums like 'Recovery' and the original 'Marshall Matters', you may be a little disappointed; if you like the cocky, throwing creative caution to the wind and sheer enjoyment of making music, without such dark clouds hovering directly above, of 'The Slim Shady LP' or 'The Eminem Show' - kick back and enjoy!

Personally, I've not enjoyed Eminem this much since the latter.
