The Marshall Mathers LP

  • May 3, 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. He didn't win a Grammy for nothing.

This Grammy Award winning CD is awesome and powerful. Songs like The Way I Am and Marshal Mathers are sung with power and conviction, while the more humorous The Real Slim Shady and Who Knew are provocative and clever. And Eminem's live performances of these songs are even more powerful and compelling.

I rate this CD a whopping SEVEN stars:

The Way I Am **
The Real Slim Shady **
I'm Back **
Kill You *

I also like Marshall Mathers and Who Knew but not quite enough to get a star. Some fans will be surprised to see that Stan didn't get a star. I like Stan, but it's not a song I want to hear a lot like the others.
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.
As with all reviews, these are my subjective opinions on the album.

What did you think of this review?

Pros: Variation, Beat, Riveting Lyrics     Cons: Vulgarity beyond anything you've heard before!     I bought the Eminem CD because my 15 year old son asked for it and I wanted to see what he was listening to. The first run through appalled me. I was shocked by the language and the use of such subject matter as killing and drug taking and wife beating.      The second time, I started to LISTEN to what Mathers was saying rather than just …

Pros: None come to mind...     Cons: Umm...almost every track...     After reviewing Eminem’s first commercial release The Slim Shady LP I decided to read the lyrics and give a listen to his next The Marshall Mathers LP. Once again I thought to myself in an angry, befuddled, and dumbfounded tone, “what on God’s green Earth is this?!” And this guy is number one on the billboard charts for several weeks running. What does this say about our society in general …
