1. Cold Wind Blows - Lyrically on point, great hook, and Just Blaze gives us a great beatto kick start this album, sign of things to come? 4/5

2. Talkiní 2 Myself Feat. Kobe - The beat sound like a mess, too many things going on here.  This song gets tiring to listen to after the 2nd verse. 2.5/5

3. On Fire - Short and sweet, but maybe overly simply. 3/5

4. Wonít Back Down Feat. Pink - Simply horrid, sorry attempt at a pop anthem track, this track should be called W.T.P. - 1/5

5. W.T.P. - I feel like I've heard this track 100x before from Slim. Pass. 2/5

6. Going Through Changes - Lame attempt at emotional song, too dependent at the sample used in the hook.  2/5

7. Not Afraid - Iovine - "Yo slim, make a track for the Staples center and golds gym" 2/5

8. Seduction - Finally things are starting to pick back up on this album.  Slim maybe now starting to realize that his yelling flow is getting tiring. 3/5

9. No Love Feat. Lil Wayne - Another uninspired track that relies so heavily on the sample to give an emotional/epic feel.  Wayne/Slim giving us the same song and dance on this track.  Been there done that. 2.5/5

10. Space Bound - Nice track, interesting sample choice, lyrically EM starting to bore. 3/5

11. Cinderella Man - One of the better tracks on the album but the beat can be too overbearing, and someone needs to keep EM in check, these songs are all really starting to drag. 3.5/5

12. 25 to Life - EM really trying to get that pop radio play on this album. 2.5/5

13. So Bad - Certified head banger, Dre came through on his only beat, which is joke that he only had one beat. 4/5

14. Almost Famous - Back to back decent tracks, finally.  Nice hook, lyrically he's all over place, more like mixtape track, hopfully he ends his album well. 3/5

15. Love the Way You Lie Feat. Rihanna - Cliche preditable nonsense we have come to expect from these two. 1.5/5

16. Youíre Never Over - His singing makes 50 singing seem like R Kelly, absolutely cringe worthy 1/5


Beats: 2.5/5
Lyrics: 3.5/5
Overall: 2.5/5

Y'all like this?

Not feeling this at all.

His vocals have changed and it's super aggressive as if he's always yelling.  bleh!

Plus, I'm not feeling the content.  All the talking to us about how he's going to deliver but he doesn't.  The singing? 

It is more pop infused music and this usually doesn't bother me but it didn't feel genuine. 

Everything feels like an act to prove himself instead of creating music that's organic and true to himself.
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

I don't hear any homerun songs we'll be talking about in ten years like The Way I Am, Stan, or Lose Yourself. But as a full album I don't think it's all that much worse than his best stuff. I went through the first 3 albums a little while back and they don't stand up well over time.

i'm about half way though & this is real strong so far. 8)

the singing isn't terrible, he can pull it off & if the second half is equally as strong, this could be his best album since The Eminem Show.

like Shallow said, i haven't heard a song yet that is a "sure-fire classic" or something that he'll be remembered for, but overall the CD has been real good so far. 8)

I don't get it.  I'll read the lyrics later to see how I exactly feel.

I'm not disputing his flow but it doesn't mean anything to me if he ain't saying much.  Nor is this commentary on the production.

It's the content that's lacking.

Edit:
As I recall I enjoyed Space bound and Cinderella man. 

Eminem does not get a pass for singing.

Eminem does not get a pass for singing. 

yeah, those have easily been two of the most stand-out songs; fucking ill. 8)

& the singing doesn't bother me; it fits the mood of the song for me.
