Product Description

Product Description



On The Slim Shady LP, Eminem wants it all. He is conflicted, you see; the world has treated him badly, and he wants to respond in kind. But he isn't a straight-up gangsta--this is, after all, the first release on Dr. Dre's Aftermath Records, his post-Death Row-era venture--and Eminem (born Marshall Mathers) doesn't really want anyone to follow in his footsteps, which leads to some interesting contradictions on this album. In the first single, "My Name Is", he's self-deprecating, rapping about his poor upbringing and his hairy palms. But on the very next song, "Guilty Conscience", he plays the devil to Dr. Dre's angel--that is, until Eminem brings up an incident from Dre's devilish past, rapping, "You gonna take advice from someone who slapped Dee Barnes?" Later, on "'97 Bonnie & Clyde", he turns Will Smith's "Just the Two of Us" on its ear, making it a tale of murder; but on "My Fault", he actually feels bad--though whether it's for the girl he overdosed or for himself is tough to figure out. With his nasal Midwestern tone, Mathers has a clean, clear flow, and the production--by Dr. Dre, Marky, and Jeff Bass--is crisp but consistently fun. Eminem has some serious skills, and he makes for some great tunes--but the lyrics are as morally reprehensible as they get. --Randy Silver

This cd is just amazing!! Eminem at his best, you wont hear a better cd than this. Every song on this cd is just great. Most people have only really heard "my name is" from this cd yet there are so many songs on this cd that i find equal, or better than my name is. Rock Bottom, Guilty Conscience, 97 Bonnie and Cylde, Role Model, As the world turns.....this cd is just amazing no other way to explain it!

This is prolly the best lyrical album since Nas' "Illmatic". Eminem will always be one of the greatest rappers, and his debut showcases his unbelievable rhymes. Songs like "Rock Bottom", "Bad Meets Evil", "Still Don't Give A F***", and "If I Had" are unreleased classics. Em's lyricism rivals Canibus' flow, but Em's is much better. This album isn't better than "The Marshall Mathers LP", but it is better than "The Eminem Show"(that cd was also really good).
"Rock Bottom"- A solid three verses about depression. Very impressive.
"Role Model"- Sounds like he freestyled these two verses. Really cool("I'm cancerous so when I rap you wouldn't wanna answer this, if you responded back with a battle rap you wrote for Canibus").
"Bad Meets Evil"- Nice verses and beat. Em's then friend Royce Da 5'9' guest raps and together the two rappers take on the world.
"If I Had"- Probably the truest song on the album. Em lets out his anger on this over a depressing beat.
"97 Bonnie & Clyde"- A darkly humorous parody of Will Smith's "Just The Two Of Us". It basically tells the story of Em taking his daughter to drown her mother.
"Still Don't Give A F***"- This song resembles "Criminal" from Eminem's sophmore album. Very cool.
Overall, like I said, the lyrics on this album are some of the best. And for all the present day Eminem haters, Em's got this locked and he's gonna end Zno's wannabe career.

Simply a classic Marshall Mathers masterpiece. Slim gets help on the mix boards with one of rap's most admired producers of all time, Dr. Dre. Dre makes songs like "Guilty Conscience" stand out with a unique feeling that you won't get from listening to anything else. My favorite tracks (in no particular order) are: My fault, As the World turns, Role Model, Guilty Conscience, My name is,'97 Bonnie and Clyde, Just don't give a F--- and Brain Damage. This album often gets hard knocks due to hits harsh lyrical content. Since buying this album two weeks ago, I have listened to it quite a few times and the lyrics do not bother me at all. However, if you are under 16, I do not reccomend playing this album in front of your parents. Eminem is one of the most talented emcyees to pick up a microphone in years. He makes words rhyme brilliantly in ways you could never immagine. If you are thinking of buying em's third release-The "Eminem Show", or his sophomore effort-"The Marshall Mathers LP" I deeply reccomend picking up this album first. It will help you relate to what he is saying in his newer releases, and will let you travel deep inside the mind of Em's dark alter-ego-Slim Shady. If you love classic rap like Tupac, Biggs, Nas, Jay-Z, Dre, and Snoop-then I promise you will fall in love with this album immediately. 10/10-lyrics 8/10-beats (if you want some very tight beats buy "The Marshall Mathers LP") 9/10-production, 10/10-Flow. Pick up this album soon!

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.
That said, I find it a little surprising that this is the album that launched what became one of the most successful entertainment careers to date. Most of the lyrics are not nearly as clever as those of later CDs, with some exceptions, and the beats are pretty similar throughout. Part of the reason is that Eminem is a great performer and live he brings every song to life.
I rate this CD TWO stars:
My Name Is *
Guilty Conscious *
Both these tunes have clever lyrics and Guilty Conscious, featuring Dr. Dre, is hilarious. If you're an Eminem fan, of course you'll want is as part of your collection.
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 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.

Okay, first lemme spit this for all you "THIS ISNT RAP" idiots. It is rap, just listen to the songs, which I bet you haven't. What you probably view as "real" rap is those losers singing about girls and cars.
Eminem has just as much credit as those rappers, not more or less.
But being a rapper credits someone only so much.
Now, we look at the style. If you seriously enjoyed "The Eminem Show," this may take some getting used to. Back when this album was released, Eminem's world wasn't based on Kim and his mother. It's a little black and white lawless world with violence and drugs. Look at the music video for "Just Don't Give a F***," which you can find at [...]
That's the world in "The Slim Shady LP." Now look at the music video for "Cleaning Out My Closet" or "The Way I Am." Thats the Eminem you might be used to. His voice was different back then too, he sounded very nasally, and high.
Now onto the song ratings (out of ten) (I won't rate skits):
My Name Is: (9.5) Although this song gets old for many people, it doesn't for me. If you get annoyed by songs easily, than view this song as a 7.5
Guilty Concience: (7) No matter now good people say this song is, it gets old for me. Ironic, huh? I just don't like to hear the sound of that girl getting banged over and over again.
Brain Damage: (10) Back then, when no one knew Eminem, this song had some shock value, even with the sarcasm, its hard to tell how real this song is. Great story, I like the rhyming (esp. the "I'm getting you back, bully" part)
If I Had: (9.75) This song may be the song that makes people think Eminem isn't a rapper. That's because this song is more of a poem than a rap. It's touching in a funny way, talking about his woes.
'97 Bonnie and Clyde: (8 in this album, 9.
