i don;t get it. you people are saying hip hop is dead and all that stuff.. you're saying guys like Drake are killing this music. And now when Em put out a poppy Drake-ish musically weak single you're saying it's a bomb. Hello hypocrisy.
and oh...is it only me who thinks Em turned from "mr. i don;t give a fuck" to "mr. i ride my fans' dicks to sell more records"?


exactly. the singing on this is as corny as the drake songs.

Plenty of things to get excited about here:

1) The song is actually great and not the usual corny first single shit.

2) He's FINALLY rapping over beats produced by someone else than himself or Dre.

3) The accent is GONE GONE GONE!!!

However there are some things which could have made this single much better:

1) The hook is great but Eminem is NOT a singer. He should have gotten someone like Drake to sing it.

2) The track sounds underproduced, like it was put together in 3 minutes and not properly mixed. Could have used a lot more work.

3) The singing middle part is awful, should have been scrapped.

Still great shit and it makes me anticipate the album even more than I already did. I don't necessarily like that he's dissing Relapse though, as that was a great album. Infact, the Relapse bous CD that came out before CHristmas was far worse than Relapse.

Haha I love the bridge, it just sounds too funny :D

I agree on the beat though.. could use more mixing and that snare is annoying.

Nice song tho

This is better than the entire Relapse album combined. You can hear that it benefit's Eminem to work with new producers. The beats on Relapse was mediocre and bland, and somewhat uninspiring. However, I think Recovery will be very good

If the beats on relapse were mediocre and bland then that makes this beat the equivalent of someone farting for a bassline and another person hitting a stick on a can every few seconds.

And this song is nowhere near Deja vu.This song isnt even as good as beautiful or hello for that matter.

Word this has nothing on Deja Vu, Underground, Hello, Same Song And Dance...

Song is dope, Dre needs to mix the shit outta that beat though, make the piano louder, add a thick ass bass line, get some crisper snares in there. Em sounding on point though, the bridge is pretty wack, raps are fire though, interesting to see he regrets relapse, atleast he knows the accent sucks though lol, raps were always dope, just bullshit accent!

Real interested to see how Recovery turns out, this was a good time for Em to do a complete 360 to his usual format and reinvent himself as an artist, this is some mega stadium music for real

Production wise I agree with the unfavourable comparison you make to the likes of deja vu lyrically this is some great shit and the more I listen to it, the more I appreciate just how tight his rhymes are and how insanely good the flow is.

Yes...Eminem is too corny and then he is too gangster and then he is too fake and then he is too sentimental and then he is playing a clown and i don't like that

Some people are never happy but this song to me is the shit
 

Action!

Yeah, I'm with those that think the production on Relapse is far superior than this tracks.  I don't mind the accent but do prefer his vocal style on this track despite the singing.
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

The more i listen the more i love the vocals and the hook.


But the more i hate the beat. Its just SHIT. Theres no other way to describe it. It sounds like an unfinished TI or Rick Ross beat.
