  I like the track, and I like that after 5 studio albums, Em is finally ready to drop the gimmicky first single that had kind of become a tradition for him.  I think that decision will please hardcore Eminem fans, although I'm not sure how the more casual fans will react to it.  Personally, I think it's the right direction for him to be moving.  I actually wasn't a big detractor of "Relapse."  However, one of my criticisms of it was that "We Made You," seemed too jokey to really fit the tone of the rest of the album.  It seemed like, in that case Eminem felt the need to put the "obligatory" gimmick single on there, even though it didn't really jibe with the rest of the album.  With this song though, I don't get that sense at all.  
  That line on here about "Relapse" was interesting too.  It seems as though Eminem is his own worst critic.  But I definitely prefer that to him acting like "Relapse" was a perfect album.  And the absence of the now infamous "accent" makes me think he is making a conscious effort to listen to his fans.
  Overall, I'm happy with the way this track turned out.  I can't say Em knocked this one out of the park.  But I would consider this a big step in the right direction.  I liked the chorus.  The beat was nice.  And Eminem's lyrics were straight forward and to the point, rather than relying on accents or jokes about celebrities and pop culture.  I hope the rest of the album follows suit.

"To the fans ill never let you down again im back,
I promise to never go back on that promise,
in fact lets be honest, that last relapse cd was ehhh,
perhaps the random accents was the problem,
relax i aint going back to that now!"

Jeez and i loved relapse. still do. but....damn

Yeah, wtf.. :P
I really like the relapse album, and think it's kinda shitty that he disses it.. How about dissing Encore, that album was his worst Imo (and I'm a eminem fan)..

The single is good, but I'm not the biggest fan of the beat.. It will probably grow on me..
Can't wait for recovery though.. ;)

I really like it. Glad to hear some positive shit.

Not too sure about the beat though. Feels like it's missing something.

Its missing a bassline

He means it was bad because of his rapping and the accent in particular.

As for this song, mid way through first listen I wanted to hate, but it's growing on me. I just wish he only did the rapping. I don't need to hear Em sing the chorus or the bridge. Mid range Don't Cry Axl Rose would have been great doing the singing on this track and wit the content it would mean something too.

this is fucking ill. 8)

doesn't really fit the formula, but he's Eminem, it won't affect sales.

the hook is very un-Eminem like; not his vibe, but he pulls it off.

the whole singing part before his last verse is "whatever", it's not very good though.

the beat is good, no complaints, but like someone else said, it does feel like it's missing something.

I am pissed, cuz em says ''in fact lets be honest that last relapse CD was ehhhhh''
I really digged and enjoyd relapse.
That dark em spit shit on those dre beats was in eyes not bad.
But to downgrading relapse is not honest.
I think most of you guys enjoyed relapse too!






Sick - feel the beat (simple but the effects/keys work nice) feel his voice (apart from the 2.50 bit but fuck it its a single)

Feel the content - its the Em we all want. He even acknowledges it....

"and to the fans
ill never let you down again
im back
i promise to not go back on that promise
in fact lets be honest that last relapse CD was ehhhhh"


PROPS TO EM
