I've only ever smoked weed twice, so I'm not a stoner and done no other drugs. Relapse is still my favorite album by him because of the depth he goes into.
The feeling you get is dark, but not dark like "Holy fuck, that's edgy. He just mentioned Columbine!" dark. It's a relatable darkness, a very real darkness. But there's also funny songs in Relapse to sort of balance it. A lot of people hate the accent he uses in a lot of the songs, but I don't mind it. It's different.
Lyrically, its depth is amazing.
The beats are phenominal.
The use of the accent is different from what I'm used to with him, and it's not 100% of the album.
Relatability is very real with this album.
I also love how you can go from a song like "We Made You", which is pretty funny, to a song like "Beautiful", which, for me, is very emotional. I felt like I could tear up at any moment listening to that song.
He wrote Beautiful in Rehab. Relapse is a very underrated album.
Definitely. It seems like the majority of people who dislike it are people who:
1.) Can't sympathize nor empathize with him
2.) Started listening
Recovery and just looked Eminem up because of "Love the Way You Lie" becoming popular.
I FUCKING HATE THOSE PEOPLE. You can't pick up Eminem off of Love the Way You Lie or you will have a very wrong view on what Eminem is. LtWYL is a good song, but it doesn't encompass what he is. It was very pop-y and it did good for what it was supposed to. But, if you go looking at Eminem thinking he's a pop-rapper you will be very disappointed and you are not an Eminem fan, you're a pop fan.
That is entirely how I feel about it. Honestly, I think some of Eminem's best songs are the ones that don't make it to the radio. "Rap God" is probably one that I think deserves to be on the radio for being a good song. I think that a song like "Bad Guy" deserved to be on the radio more than a song like "Berzerk".
Yeah, but I understand the reasoning behind the singles he put out. He put out the singles that would appeal the most to non-die hard Em fans. Most of Eminem's greatest songs are the one's that you can only hear by buying the album and I like that. The mainstream isn't the best place for a lot of his music. Only those who listen to his entire albums can understand a lot of the great songs. He makes his radio songs, and keeps the gems hidden for the real fans.
Yeah. He knows how it works. He understands how to put out good music, while still appealing to a larger fanbase. He really knows how to please as many people into becoming fans as possible
That's why he's one of the greats. It's a little weird for me discussing this with a guy named after Osama, but I'm happy you have similar opinions. I have a hard time finding people who share the same Eminem views as me.
I think MMLP2 was a very good album to show how much he's matured since the original. Headlights was, subject matterily speaking, my favorite song on the album.
Likewise. It's always interesting to talk to someone with similar views. It seems almost uncommon to come across people who aren't bigger fans of his singles.
Agreed. So, in your opinion, what order would you put his albums? From infinite down to the last relapse album... And through to MMLP2
That's a tough one. A
of his albums are close in quality, but Relapse is my favorite so I'll put that one at the top.
Marshall Mathers LP2
Marshall Mathers LP
The Eminem Show
Slim Shady LP
Slim Shady EP
Honestly, the list may change if I gave all of the albums a relisten. He always keeps his albums at top notch quality, but Recovery and Relapse were the ones that weren't hard to place. A lot of it was biased toward my relatability to the songs and my liking to the sound.
The Eminem Show
The Eminem Show was my favorite, and I need to listen to the MMLP2 a little more. None of the Albums are bad so The list is basically 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, etc. for me.
Yeah. I'm the type of person who hates being biased when rating songs and albums, but I also don't like being picky. I usually won't even own anything I find to be less than 4 stars overall, so Eminem is pretty much the one artist I feel deserves the bias I have when I rate his stuff.
Eminem is the only rapper whose discography I own. I am bias when it comes to him, but I feel he deserves it. Anyway, it was great talking to you. I gotta go to bed, so I'll talk to ya later. Don't be afraid to PM me any time. See ya, BIn Laden.
Agreed! I should probably get to bed, soon, too. Nice talking to ya, man!
