The Eminem Show

  • May 4, 2004
Whether you love him or hate him, it's hard to deny that Eminem is the best rapper today, and may be the best rapper of all time. His clear diction, rapid fire delivery, innovative beats, and clever lyrics make for very entertaining music.

The Eminem Show follows up the Grammy winning Marshall Mathers LP with a bang. The great thing about this LP is it doesn't fall into the trap of so many artisits, especially rap artists, of basically putting out follow-up LPs that sound the same as their last album. This is a new, fresh piece of work with the same clever lyrics and controversial, in your face style we've come to expect.

Without Me, probably the most popular song on the album (excepting possibly Cleaning Out My Closet which got a lot of airplay for the cleaned-up version), is my favorite. But all the songs, with a few expeptions, are very entertaining. This is not a CD for which I find myself reaching for the skip button after every other song.

I rate this CD an impressive SIX stars:

White America *
Buisness *
Cleanin Out My Closet *
Without Me **
Superman *

Most of the other songs on the CD are very good too. This is one of my most listened to LPs.
Ratings: CDs are rated simply by how many good songs are on the album. Great songs get two stars, and good songs get one star. Songs that get no stars are those that I might like but not enough to give it a star or ones I find boring or actively dislike. CDs are not penalized for songs that I don't like because they are easy enough to skip over. There is no maximum number of stars a CD can get, but of course the more stars it gets, the better the CD.
