Product Description

Product Description


His second album finds Eminem struggling to contain the pressures of success. And he's dealing it with it disgracefully. The Detroit rapper's multiple identities are more mixed up than ever, with Marshall Mathers fighting for prominence against his alter egos: Eminem, Slim Shady, Kenneth Kaniff and his public image. Don't be fooled by the album title: apart from the eponymous "Marshall Mathers" (which runs the lyrical gamut from maudlin to maniacal) you won't learn too much about "the real Slim Shady" here. As fiction bleeds into reality, Eminem aggravates the wound to increase the flow. The Dr Dre/Mel-Man productions on this record don't have the slap-happy bounce of those from the Slim Shady LP; all drums and bass, they're ghostly, minimised slabs of roto-funk. Except, of course for the gleefully self-referential single "The Real Slim Shady", for which Dre appropriately cuts in some of the picked-guitar from his own "Forgot About Dre". Eminem's own co-productions with F.B.T. veer from the bounce to the ounce of "Drug Ballad" to the full-metal jacket of "Kim", where you get to find out all the gruesome details of how Eminem's paramour ended up in the back of that trunk (from Slim Shady's "'97 Bonnie and Clyde"). And believe me, it ain't pretty. If anything there's a lesson to be learnt here: money, success, drugs, murderous intent, mental trauma and schizophrenia are all just as American as apple pie. --Chris Campion

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album Of The 2000's Sept. 14 2005
By "pawse"
Format:Audio CD
The Marshall Mathers LP is a masterpiece created by a genius. This album is topped by few. When people say the reasons why they hate this album, because he's " crude ", " disqusting ", murderous ", they need to get a life. You think that he actually means it when he says, " B**** IMMA KILL YOU! You don't wanna **** with me. " He's not actually going to gon and kill someone. GET OVER IT. Now, that my message against Eminem haters has been said, let us continue.
It's lines like " I used to get punked and bullied on my block, till I cut a kittens head off and stuck it in this kid's mailbox " that make this album great. The thing that I admire most about Eminem is his attitude of, " I don't give a **** what you think about me. " And this is clearly expressed in this album, especially in the song " The Way I Am ", which by the way, is probably his best song ever. It's really too bad that he went down in his latest album, " Encore ". This was Eminem in his prime, and anyone who isn't easily affended should definately pick up this album.
Public Service Announcement: Very funny opening to an album.
Kill You: Awsome song. It is revolutionary and it's what made parents hate this album. 5/5
Stan: A deep song about a fan's obesession and what he might do to go to far. 5/5
Who Knew: A very cool song. It delivers some good messages ( listen to the song before you think about what I just said ) 5/5
The Way I Am: The best " STFU " song out there. 5/5
The Real Slim Shady: Funny song with a catchy beat. But I found that it's a bit overrated. But, stil... 5/5
Remember Me?: Cool song, but not the best on the album 4/5
I'm Back: Very good song with some awsome lyrics. I listen to it every day on my iPod.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cd /w all of his Cd's too June 23 2004
By Jake
Format:Audio CD
Some people dont like rapper eminem becouse he has dealt with crap in his life but he really came with a lot of talent.
The CD came out in 5/23/2000
His songs:
Public service announcement- This is a great track even though it only lasts about 30 seconds many of eminems other cd's had come with this sort of introduction including the slimshady LP which came with another public service announcement, D12 in Devils night came with one too.
KILL YOU- Different track much like the Real Slim Shady(one of eminems winning songs)A very jummmppy song and cruel to the people who dont he doesnt think good of, not a seriouse song.
STAN: Features Dido a great female singer this song is about a teen who has something for eminem and he has to keep writing to try and get some attention.
PAUL- Very short skit somewhat pointless
Who Knew- Eminem never knen how far he was going to get or if he was going to move at all listen to this song!!
STEVE BERMAN-Seriouse song bring out the fact that eminem doesnt care what everyone else thinks he is saying f the world f the presidents f everyone.
THE REAL SLIM SHADY- MOre of a higher beat song and the guy is trying to say that hes so good everyones trying to imatate him the cloths the hair everything.
Buy the cds and make judjements on the other songs that are on the marshall mathers LP. Songs also feature Dr.Dre, Xzibit, Dido, Snoop d-o double gg (snoop dogg)and many other rappers. I personally like this cd a lot along with many of other slim shady cd's.
Cd's that i would also buy with this cd would be The Eminem Show,The Slimshady LP, Dr.Dre 2001,8 mile Soundtrack.
Give me a good rating. Eminems a good guy who might need a slight additude adjustment with his girlfrien kim. i think that everyone need to listen to this cd to get the full effect of eminem to get inside him and see everything he is thinking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Em's controversial second effort June 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With a lot of negative hype surrounding Marshall's debut album-"The Slim Shady LP", Eminem works around all of the controversy and puts out a very strong sophomore record. This album had three major hits that put this record near the top of the charts, including the very touching "Stan" (feat. Dido), a very funny song lyrically-"The Real Slim Shady", and a hard shot at all of Em's critics-"The Way I Am". This record is close to being great, but settles down at very good. This CD has three amazing songs (mentioned above), Six great songs: "Marshall Mathers", "Criminal", "Who Knew", "I'm Back", "Drug Ballad", and "B**** Please II", Two Awful songs: "Remember Me" and Under the Influence", and two other very scary songs "Kill You", and "Kim". In "Kim", Em raps about brutally killing his wife Kim, while still being able to make it home in time to care for his beloved daughter Hailie. Nonetheless, this album is still very good, and any Eminem fan should definitely have this. I recommend picking this album up along with Eminem's debut "The Slim Shady LP", before buying the "Eminem Show". 10/10-beats, 9/10 -lyrics, 7/10-flow, 9/10-production

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
DAMN! This cd kicks ass! u can't skip anything on this cd. here are the tracks (no skits, but psa is really funny!) and my reviews.
kill you-interesting song about em wanting to kill his mom, kinda funny 4.5/5
stan- everyone's heard this before 5/5
who knew- offensive song, gets a little bit annoying after a while 4/5
the way i am- everyone's heard this before, em's song about how he's pissed off at everyone 5/5
the real slim shady- really funny, overplayed though 5/5
remember me- collabo from rbx and sticky fingaz, a lot of people didn't like this but i thought it was kool, tight lyrics, nice beats 4.5/5
i'm back- song about how eminem is well, back. funny, nice rhymes 5/5
marshall mathers- slow ballad about how no one cared about em, but now everyone loves him 5/5
drug ballad- hilarious ballad about drugs(what else?) 5/5
amityville- weird song with a nice beat to it about how violent detroit is, bizarre's on this track, does a tight verse 5/5
bitch please 2- awesome song with dre, snoop, nate dogg, and xzibit, good beats, good lyrics, kinda funny 5/5
kim- quite possible the most sadistic song ever, all about how em wants to kill his wife, worth a listen 4/5
under the influence- with d12, it says that they're all high, and if you don't like their music, they have a special message to you! (funniest song on the cd) 5/5
criminal- all about how em's a criminal, funny skit in the middle of it, where dre says "muthaf***ing" about 5 times, 5/5
if you have the cash, buy this cd, its the best investment i ever made

4.0 out of 5 stars For Eminem fans only!
My friend liked it but found some of the content a bit harsh. I told him it was Marshall given "his" people want they want.

By far Eminem's best album. Songs like "Stan" and "The way I am" make this cd his greatest work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why so much hate?
Come on people, Eminem is a very talented rapper. Sure, there is profanity. But seriously, curse words have become a huge part of our language. Read more
