Product Description

Product Description

UK version of the controversial rapper's sophomore album, one of the fastest-selling rap albums of all time. Includes one bonus track, 'The Kids'. 2000 release. Standard jewelcase.

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

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.

Like a lot of fans of the "true" hip-hop, I slept on the first album, thinking Eminem was a gimmicky rapper that only got play because he was white. But the skills he showed on "Forgot About Dre" convinced me to pick up the new LP, and I'm glad I did. "The Real Slim Shady" is really the only radio-friendly cut on the album, and most of the rest of it is lyrically tight and, even more importantly, honest and expressive. Not only does Slim drop uncensored opinions, he reveals alot of his own personality. The best cut is "Stan," where Eminem drops an ironic tale of an obsessed fan over a smoothed-out beat. Using letters was really original and creative. Listening to Slim rant about his ex-girlfriend, boy/girl bands and the MTV that made him can get a little tiresome, but its still nice to hear a rapper talk about something other than the girls and the Mercedes he rented for the video. Eminem will probably never become the "legitimate" hip-hop artist he desperately wants to become, because it will be almost impossible to live down the image of the "Great White Hope," but he has the lyrics and the originality to at least carve out his own little niche.

After The Slim Shady LP I found myself in amazement. I white rapper. Yeah right we have another Vanilla Ice here. Then Everyone started talking about Eminem and "My name is." At first every African American was talking about how "cat" Eminem is and stuff like that. Every White person loved him.
Finally came Dre 2001. Eminem's cut "Forgot about Dre" was the biggest hit from CD and from there on out everyone has been looking forward to this album.
At first people were worried about the "Sophomore Slump." You know all the good rappers have them Snoop, Dre, Jay - Z, Puffy, etc. But what people did not realize was that not every good rapper actually have them. DMX didn't and now Eminem did not as well.
On this album you have all the elements of a "great" album. Starting with "Kill You." A track where Emienem is talking about exactly that. After that comes possibly one of the best tracks "Stan." Of course "The Real Slim Shady" where he talks about everyone from Will Smith to Christina Aguilera. The best track on the CD to me is "Marshall Mathers." This shows the true Marshall Mathers in this track. He talks about everyone from New Kids on the Block to Britney Spears to N Sync and the backstreet Boys.

Em, what happened? Where's the self-deprecating humor of "The Slim Shady LP?"
I sure hope Em's not believing the hype and taking himself too seriously. He's mad at just about everyone (DJs, Christina Aguilera, NSYNC, the media, parents, etc., etc., etc. ad nauseum.) Sometimes it gets to be repetitive ("The Real Slim Shady" is probably the worst track on this CD,) but oftentimes Em shows the lyrical skills that made "The Slim Shady LP" so great.
"Steve Berman" is a great dig at the record industry, which no one can treat too badly for me ... "The Way I Am" is probably Em at his angriest, raging at parents in Columbine and his "sudden" relatives.
But the best song on the album is "Stan." Eminem takes on the guise of one of his obsessed fans writing him letters. The lyrics get more disturbed as the song goes on. The beats and the melody are gripping, and whoever chose Dido to provide backup vocals is a genius. Her haunting voice takes the song to a new level, one that I didn't think Eminem was capable of reaching. "Stan" is one of the best songs of any style to come out in years. The album's worth buying just for it alone.
So just buy the album and enjoy the music. Hopefully it entertains you, because THAT'S ALL IT'S SUPPOSED TO DO!!! ... ENDthers LP's vicegerents favor a lifestyle that is as insecure as Eminem's reports. to the ears. I just can't take it. The only artist that makes me cringe more is Macy Gray with her high-pitched, nasal, RASPY delivery. My advice to the "artist": Save part of your profits for therapy for yourself and your daughter. She will need it. Especially after you've disrespected half her family (including yourself) to the world.
