Download not available With Recovery, it becomes obvious that Eminem's richest albums aren't necessarily his most structurally sound, which isn't much of a surprise when considering the rapper's full-on embrace of flaws and contradictions.
This results in an album where a shameless but killer Michael J. Ignoring these contradictions, fans can feed on the energy, the renewed sense of purpose, and Marshall doing whatever the hell he wants, up to and including shoehorning a grand, Dlike comedy number "W.
Curtain Call: The Hits. Download not available If Eminem's Curtain Call: The Hits really is his final bow and not merely a clever denouement to his series of Eminem Show and Encore albums, it's a worthy way to retire. And even if he stages a comeback years from now, there's little question that the first five years of his career, spanning four albums plus a soundtrack, will be his popular and creative peak, meaning that the time is right for Curtain Call -- it has all the songs upon which his legend lies.
Which isn't necessarily the same things as all the hits. The only exception to the rule are the three new songs here, all finding Shady sounding somewhat thin. There's the closing "When I'm Gone," a sentimental chapter in the Eminem domestic psychodrama that bears the unmistakable suggestion that Em is going away for a while.
While it's not up to the standard of "Mockingbird," it is more fully realized than the two other new cuts here, both sex songs that find Shady sounding as if he's drifting along in his own orbit. Even if these three cuts suggest why Eminem is, if not retiring, at least taking a long break, that's fine: they're reasonably good and are bolstered by the rest of the songs here, which don't just capture him at his best, but retain their energy, humor, weirdness, and vitality even after they've long become overly familiar.
And that means Curtain Call isn't just a good way to bow out, but it's a great greatest-hits album by any measure. The Eminem Show. Download not available It's all about the title. First time around, Eminem established his alter ego, Slim Shady -- the character who deliberately shocked and offended millions, turning Eminem into a star.
Second time at bat, he turned out The Marshall Mathers LP, delving deeper into his past while revealing complexity as an artist and a personality that helped bring him an even greater audience and much, much more controversy.
Third time around, it's The Eminem Show -- a title that signals that Eminem's public persona is front and center, for the very first time. And it is, as he spends much of the album commenting on the media circus that dominated on his life ever since the release of Marshall Mathers.
This, of course, encompasses many, many familiar subjects -- his troubled childhood; his hatred of his parents; his turbulent relationship with his ex-wife, Kim including the notorious incident when he assaulted a guy who allegedly kissed her -- the event that led to their divorce ; his love of his daughter, Hailie; and, of course, all the controversy he generated, notably the furor over his alleged homophobia and his scolding from Lynne Cheney, which leads to furious criticism about the hypocrisy of America and its government.
All this is married to a production very similar to that of its predecessor -- spare, funky, fluid, and vibrant, punctuated with a couple of ballads along the way. So, that means The Eminem Show is essentially a holding pattern, but it's a glorious one -- one that proves Eminem is the gold standard in pop music in , delivering stylish, catchy, dense, funny, political music that rarely panders apart from a power ballad "Dream On" rewrite on "Sing for the Moment" and maybe the sex rap "Drips," that is.
Even if there is little new ground broken, the presentation is exceptional -- Dre never sounds better as a producer than when Eminem pushes him forward witness the stunning oddity "Square Dance," a left-field classic with an ominous waltz beat and, with three albums under his belt, Eminem has proven himself to be one of the all-time classic MCs, surprising as much with his delivery as with what he says.
Plus, the undercurrent of political anger -- not just attacking Lynne Cheney, but raising questions about the Bush administration -- gives depth to his typical topics, adding a new, spirited dimension to his shock tactics as notable as the deep sentimental streak he reveals on his odes to his daughter. Perhaps the album runs a little too long at 20 songs and 80 minutes and would have flowed better if trimmed by 25 minutes, but that's a typical complaint about modern hip-hop records.
Fact is, it still delivers more great music than most of its peers in rock or rap, and is further proof that Eminem is an artist of considerable range and dimension. Download not available Music to be Murdered By begins with the sound of a violent murder. The murder of one of Eminem's many demons, or of one of the rivals whom he constantly mentions in his lyrics.
Perhaps it is also an echo of his track Kim, on which he murdered his wife in stereo. In short, from the beginning and as usual, Eminem allows himself to be read on many different levels.
In fact, he is stuck between his need to maintain a sassy "Rap God" image, but also his desire for — his obsession with — respectability. The man who used to mock pop culture and its symbols now invites Ed Sheeran onto Those Kinda Nights, continues his collaboration with singer Skylar Grey on Leaving Heaven, takes up easy listening sounds on the disastrous Farewell, and fuels increasingly futile rivalries on Premonition — Intro.
Dre or The Alchemist. All is not lost, Eminem still has something left in his tank. So much so that Music to be Murdered By enjoys a welcome deluxe version where Eminem abandons gratuitous technique, focusing on lyrics and performance. Perhaps it is when there is less at stake, when he is freer, that he is at his best. And, after all, why not? Download not available Hurt in his core by the critics on his comeback album, Revival, Eminem keeps with the times by releasing a surprise album the very same year.
Using the same weapons as his peers, Eminem spends most of his tracks performing a proper technical show-off, right from the explosive intro, The Ringer. Trying to re-engage with his stroke of genius of the past, the rapper from Detroit reverts back to his habits as a battle MC, pounding on his opponents with versatility and multiplying references to current events on the rap scene.
Setting the record straight and modernizing his music, Eminem has regained this raw, untamed energy many thought was extinct. The Slim Shady LP. Download not available Given his subsequent superstardom, culminating in no less than an Academy Award, it may be easy to overlook exactly how demonized Eminem was once his mainstream debut album, The Slim Shady LP, grabbed the attention of pop music upon its release in Then, it wasn't clear to every listener that Eminem was, as they say, an unreliable narrator, somebody who slung satire, lies, uncomfortable truths, and lacerating insights with vigor and venom, blurring the line between reality and parody, all seemingly without effort.
The Slim Shady LP bristles with this tension, since it's never always clear when Marshall Mathers is joking and when he's dead serious. This was unsettling in , when nobody knew his back-story, and years later, when his personal turmoil is public knowledge, it still can be unsettling, because his words and delivery are that powerful.
Of course, nowhere is this more true than on "97 Bonnie and Clyde," a notorious track where he imagines killing his wife and then disposing of the body with his baby daughter in tow. There have been more violent songs in rap, but few more disturbing, and it's not because of what it describes, it's how he describes it -- how the perfectly modulated phrasing enhances the horror and black humor of his words.
Eminem's supreme gifts are an expansive vocabulary and vivid imagination, which he unleashes with wicked humor and unsparing anger in equal measure.
