Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money July 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Slim Shady LP is Eminem's first album. It was released quite a few years ago and features the hit single, "My name is...
... Slim Shady". Here's a rating of the tracks on this album:
1 - Public Service Announcement - N/A
Just a regular PSA, nothing special here.
2 - My Name Is - 8/10
This is quite a good song to open the album. It's basically Eminem introducing himself and talking about things he likes to do.
3 - Guilty Conscience - 6/10
In this song, there are people who want to do something bad, but just before they do it, their conscience kicks in. Eminem plays the devil, and Dr Dre plays the angel. There's nothing that intersting about it though.
4 - Brain Damage - 8/10
This song is quite good. It's about Eminem when he was little, and when he used to get beaten up at school. He gets brain damage and then gets revenge.
5 - Paul - N/A
Paul Rosenberg - Eminem's manager, calls him to talk about the album.
6 - If I Had - 6/10
Eminem tells listeners how he is upset with the way is life is and what he would rather have. He also mentions what he would do if he had $1000000, and a magic wand.
7 - '97 Bonnie & Clyde - 5/10
Some listeners may find this song disturbing. Eminem and his little daughter Hailie, go in the car to drop his wife in the sea to "see how far she can float".
8 - Zoe - N/A
This is quite amusing. A friend of Zoe's plays Eminem in her car, and Zoe thinks it's disgusting, so she calls in and gives a piece of her mind.
9 - Role Model - 11/10
This song is brilliant - the best on the album. Eminem talks about a few things that he does and it's really funny. There is a good beat, with an exellent guitar loop and amusing sound effects.

Before the Slim Shady LP, a no-name emcee named Eminem was probably ripping the mic at the Lyricist Lounge or other underground hiphop spots...back when he was an ill lyricist hungry for attention by scaring you ... with raw punchlines and excellent verbal battling ability. Back when he was able to step into a rhyme cypher with Canibus, Mos Def, Last Emperor, and Chino XL and dominate... To a hiphop standpoint, by focusing on his lyrics and comparing with his earlier efforts, this CD is the beginning of his downfall... But with the variety of ideas it saves the CD. And by being so creative brings it up to 5 stars...
Highlights of the CD: My Name Is (verbal part), Guilty Conscience (highly creative track), Brain Damage (clever storytelling), Bonnie & Clyde (very creative yet disturbing song), Role Model, As The World Turns, Bad Meets Evil (dope lyrics on this), and Still Don't Give A ****
Some negative sides of the CD: My Name Is (chorus and music), My Fault (OK story but annoying harmony)... plus if he had a more dependable producer we'd hear better beats...
Unfortunately, because he's not on a dependable label he's forced to rap to garbage beats (which is Dre's specialty, but this release are some of his better ones), he's forced to do exactly what the higher level employees he works with say. He's not able to make his own decisions and the contoversy that has become of him has forced him to listen to Dre and others and rap about that instead of making his own ideas... ARTIST - one that can use their imaginative ability to create something...
But, none the less, an excellent debut CD by a good artist who's stuck with a bad label... Hopefully one day Slim will wake up and leave DRE in his footprints and join a true HIPHOP label 'RAWKUS' ...

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! Aug. 25 1999
Format:Audio CD
i must admit, i fell in love with eminem after the first time i heard "my name is" on TRL. when i found out the real words to it, i liked it even more! he's one artist who truely isn't afraid to express what he feels, and what he knows everyone else feels. i don't think i know one person who can't relate to one song on the whole album! he says it as it is.....in plain, true english. after gettin his album, i realized how great an artist he really is. many wouldn't call what he does music, but even though most wouldn't want to admit it, he speaks the truth about life. although many try to shade themselves from the harsh reality of life, you have to realize that this is the way it is, and always will be, he just knows first hand. i LOVE this cd, and listen to is 24/7! his melodic tunes, give me a sense of reality. i love it!!! i give him MAJOR props for this album, and hope he gets true success w/this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars the cd that made eminem May 30 2005
Format:Audio CD
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!
