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.Read more ›
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' ...Read more ›
