Comparing numbers to the way it used to be is irrelevent.   Even Wayne who had the most generated buzz since 50 still didn't sell that much.  If he sells 1 million in the first week it'll be good.



When something is played out, it's played. It's as simple as that. Maybe MMLP numbers are out of the question, but he won't even do Encore numbers. Most hyped rappers can do a mil a close to a mil in week 1. It's the following weeks that make wonder. I just can't see this album going 3x unless there is a real gem released as a single later on. And when you are a star as big as Em and spend a lot of cash producing and promoting the album and videos, under 3x doesn't cut it.


Dre Day, even if the songs were better the first single would still be very boring by now. It's like pro wrestling or Jerry Springer in the mid to late 90s. They would do all these shock TV storylines and the public ate it up. They still try the same thing today and no one cares. May Young giving birth to a had isn't any better than Kane and a corpse and Jerry Springer could have the most unlikely situation ever but the public won't care as much any more.

Eminem needs a new direction, plain and simple. He is losing his credibility as a serious artist with every album he releases in the old style and he's going to lose sales as well. Because it's not funny anymore and it's not shocking anymore.



As for the accent making him sound like a serial killer; that idea might have worked if it didn't sound so much like like the Ass Like That accent already. The voice is stupid and it needs to go.

well, from a critic point of view, i totally agree with you!
and you're right about the sales & perception of Eminem as an artist too.

i was just pointing out that, i can listen to Without Me, while it's far from original, it's still a lot better than We Made You to me  ;)

They'd probably catch a lawsuit if she did. That's how Disney rolls.

Even "Without Me" was like 6 or 7 years ago when he was far less boring doing that. Yes, I do think Without Me is a better track. But I'd probably have preferred We Made You rapped in 03 with a regular voice than I would Without Me rapped with an accent in 09.
