Product Description

Product Description


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

This cd is just amazing!! Eminem at his best, you wont hear a better cd than this. Every song on this cd is just great. Most people have only really heard "my name is" from this cd yet there are so many songs on this cd that i find equal, or better than my name is. Rock Bottom, Guilty Conscience, 97 Bonnie and Cylde, Role Model, As the world turns.....this cd is just amazing no other way to explain it!

By this time we all have heard of the famous white rapper Eminem. "How did this happen?", you may ask. Well it sure wasn't his looks, it was all due to this album. Eminem comes out of almost nowhere and shocks the world with his odd voice and different beat.
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.

I had bought the Marshall Mathers LP before this, mainly because a friend bought it during summer 2000, and I was very impressed. Remebering that he has a FIRST album, I picked this one right up. Boy, if you think the MM LP is messed up, wait till you hear this. There are some crazy themes in here, some more digusting than on MM. However, this album I feel had more put into it, because it was his debut. Lets look at the crazy world Slim made on this album:
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.

I am for the most part a very conservative person, and those who know me would probably never imagine that I am a devoted Eminem fan. When The Slim Shady LP came out in 1999, I heard a lot about it, but I had almost no exposure to the music itself. The only song I really heard at the time was the radio version of My Name Is, and that little ditty seemed to have "gimmick" written all over it. I expected Eminem to disappear from the music scene after a few months. I, like many people, was uninformed and wrongly dismissed this artist out of hand. Then, I actually listened to the man's music, and I soon realized that Eminem was in fact a musical genius. This first album is a little more bare-bones and gritty than The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show, but it is nonetheless nothing short of amazing. I am not exactly a big fan of rap or hip-hop, although I have wandered down those lanes a few times in my past, but Eminem actually transcends rap, creating a musical genre all his own that reaches out to even the most unlikeliest of places to win fans like me. Sure, the lyrics are explicit, but what I have come to realize is this: Eminem does not use the explicit lyrics to attract notoriety and sell albums; he uses explicit lyrics because he is expressing himself in a shockingly honest way, and what he gives us is his own version of truth and reality. He really does have something to say, and he says it in a way that speaks not only to the culture of the streets but also to boring conservative individuals like me.
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.
