almost a month later and I can say this: album is a modern classic



Top EM albums

1. MMLP
2. Relapse
3. EM Show
4. SSLP
5. Shitcore
Good joke, Em Show & SSLP shits all over this. This is a modern good album = a few years ago it woulda been wack.

Dre did an amazing job on Relapse for Eminem, really helped the album out a lot, in my opinon.

but imagine what 50's album is going to sound like esspecially concidering 50 is in demand for bangin' beats to sound good on songs.

Eminem didn't need the "bangin'" beats, he could have made a great album with softer, but still awesome Dre beats.

50 needs the bangers & i think Dre is going to make Before I Self-Destruct sick! :o

Yeah if everything sticks to plan it looks like 50 will have heavy Dre production, Relaspe II the same and it will all come to a crescendo when or if Detox drops lol. Already this year alone with just Relaspe having all these Dre beats other than when 2001 was out I can't remember a time when Dre has been this busy.

he hasn't been, i mean he's worked on GRODT, Encore & The Documentary & then maybe one track for one rapper like every six months or so, but he's been quiet other than that.

he did Relapse, now is working on BISD, Relapse II, his own album & The Reformation(?) lol.

dude is workin' hard in the studio, but if he keeps up that bangin' production like on Relapse; 50's album will sound so much better than some of his previous works.

He COMPLETELY changed his whole production style once he signed Em and that IMO for me at least made me look at him as a more well rounded producer. Instead of having just west coast sounding bangers, which is not a bad thing, he could make more darker tracks or light hearted tracks for Em. I do not expect ANYTHING like Relaspe on 50's album. In fact that is why I said I am tired of 50 trying to remake In The Club. Dre also made 50 alot of darker tracks as well, like Heat or Back Down. He needs to get back to that sound. Em's beats fit 50 well along with Lloyd Banks in that regard too.

that's what's great about Dre: he can make stuff specifically for a certain artist :)

What I'm wondering is if there are any non- Em f(st)ans who thought this was a good album. Like people who like some of his music but don't have all of his albums. I'm really surprised there are people at all who think this is a great album and are comparing it to his previous releases. If this isn't a mediocre album at best then I don't know what is. How bad of an album does Em have to release for these people to admit its not good?

It was good but not up to par with MMLP or Eminem Show IMO

At least you will admit that its a disappointment compared to his other albums. People use the excuse that "oh every other mainstream album sucks so this is a good album by comparison." No, its still trash. Its better trash than some other albums but its still trash for Em standards.

Lol, I would not say all that. I enjoyed the album. I did not go into it expecting a MMLP or anything else. I try to keep a open mind and separate each album a artist puts out. As long as I enjoy it then cool. Relaspe is a good album, not so sure if I consider it great but a very good album.

Yeah I sorta agree. He can't have another MMLP or SSLP or even TES. I mean Encore = his weakest album, this is basically better then Encore, but weaker then then The Eminem show. I mean his album strengths sorta go MMLP>SSLP>TES>Relapse>Encore. Because MMLP was his highest selling, had his best lyrics, and was pretty raw on some fronts. SSLP is what brought him to fame, had crazy lyrics and was just him before the controversy.The Eminem Show was basically him trying to make deeper music (Sing for the Moment, Cleaning out my closet), and turning down for a softer tone. Then Encore....well everything on that was just simple....Weakest album by far.

Then you got Relapse which while going though the numbers:Homosexuals,Shock Lyrics,Drug Abuse being the major factor on this 1, his mom, and possibly KIM on relapse 2. His Rhymes are better then Encore, the Production is better then Encore, but are pretty much on the same level as The Eminem Show.The Lyrics are similar to The Slim Shady LP, but are not as good in comparison, like I said its pretty much better then Encore, but not as strong as The Eminem Show. Basically a 2009 Eminem show IMO. Relapse 2 can possibly be a better album.

Though I have to admit, Song's like Beautiful is pretty much what the Album Could of been, if he didn't take his Safe zone for granted. Its sorta like 2001, The Entire album could of been like "The Message" if he didn't go into his Safe zone of Gangsta Rap norms. Its still good (both of em are) I mean If he had gone this route, he could of possibly has his own MATW type thing going on. Relapse 2 sounds like it will be more Chaotic and raw, based off the last track.
