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

With his hit song "My name is," he was able to gain immidiate respect in the hip hop world. This song absolutely rocks, by far his most famous song ever. He follows it up by partnering up with Dr. Dre in "guilty conscience," yet another big hit.
Although, not all of the 20 songs on this album became hits, it is still a very good cd. It offers a lot more good songs than he gets credit for. "Brain dammage," and "I still don't give a f**k," will get you jumping around as well.
Eminem also has a comedic aspect to his songs. Most of them a very dark sense of humor which makes you wonder if it is alright to laugh. But it's still good entertainment.
All in all, I think this album was strong in every aspect. He made a classic which will be remembered forever in the rap industry. The Slim Shady LP is definitely worth buying.
PSA- Funnier than PSA 2000
My Name Is- A great track that started it all for him and shows some of the best work he has done
Guilty Conscience- Em and Dre both shine on this track and some of it is funny too (different than the single)
Brain Damage- One of the best tracks with a cool chorus. There is great rhyming here with tales of his young childhood
Paul- "Bunyan" Rosenburg shows us why MM's Paul skit is really very funny
If I Had- A slow and not all hardcore song about if he had a million dollers. Neat background vocals and overall pretty good.
97' Bonnie & Clyde- The tale of him killing his wife is told ominously and frighteningly. Some of this track is very funny but I usually don't need to hear about family murder.
B****- Funny skit about a teen girl hearing this album
Role Model- Another great track with witty, hardcore rhymes and an interesting beat. Funny chorus.
Lounge- Very funny skit which is a prelude to...
My Fault- A tale of Slim giving a girl (Susan) mushrooms and her dying because of it. It is treated as a comical song, but the end is emotional. Good beat, chorus, and hilarious rhymes. Candidate for best track.
Ken Kaniff- Introduces us to Kenneth Kaniff from Connecticut. Pretty funny and nasty stuff.Read more ›
I can't find a bad song on this album, although I'm not that fond of the Ken Kaniff sketch. Eminem does things with beats and rhymes that I have never heard anyone else do, using the very rhythm of his music as a further means of communicating his ideas and feelings.Read more ›
