THIS TWO DISC SET INCLUDES BONUS CD WITH THREE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SONGS.
Eminem's fourth album offers few surprises, but still enough pleasures to carry the day. As evinced by Em's pre-election, pro-voting "Mosh," this is not exactly the same Eminem who seemingly crapped on anything and everything. Encore finds a surprisingly mature Eminem waxing reflective about his battle with Benzino ("Like Toy Soldiers") rather than unloading both barrels. However, it's not all elder statesmanship: "Puke" goes after his ex-wife Kim with incredible scorn, and "Big Weenie" showcases the familiar juvenile humor that made him famous. If Encore has a clear weakness, it's the bland production--the same plodding sound that he and Dr. Dre cooked up on the previous three albums. The exotic flavor of "Ass Like That" catches the ear, but many others run off the same monotonous minor-key melodies and tempos. Of course, people buy Eminem albums to hear him spit first and foremost, and in that regard few fans will be disappointed by Encore; it'd just be nice to see him switch up his sound at some point. --Oliver Wang

With tracks such as "Square Dance" on The Eminem Show, and a release like "Mosh" off of EncorE, it would have been excusable to assume that the latter would be much more politic-fueled. This is not the case, as "Mosh" appears to be the only really interesting song on EncorE to this effect. That is, apart from "We As Americans", which only appears on the bonus 3-song disc; another disappointment.
Let us hope that the lyrical master that was Eminem can return in his next album to show us all what rap is missing. It would be hard to believe that this is Eminem's final product. And it would be sad if it were. Marshall is capable of so much more, so here's hoping he lives up to it next time.

They're arn't many songs left on the CD, but they are mediocre, to crap at best.
his music is just about making fun of other pple and just stuff u don`t wanna hear about. to the people who get mad when someone writes a review like this, i got a question.. why do u like Eminem? that`s all he does is say stuff about other pple.
I think other singers should start singing bad things about Eminem. don`t waste your money on this B.S.
go get something worth listening to.
