J.E., I got ya' on the review  :D

1. Cold Wind Blows - 3.75/5 The beat is pretty good. I don't find his singing on here annoying. Pretty good opener.
2. Talkin' to Myself - 4.5/5 - This shit is fire. Khalil killed the beat and Kobe drops a classic hook. Love the honest Em on the first talkin' about almost dissin' Wayne & Kanye.

3. On Fire - 3.5/5 This beat is pretty banging. Em's flow is tight here too. Not much yelling on here. This is a pretty solid album joint.

4. Won't Back Down - 3.5/5 This beat keeps growing on me. It's so banging. I don't think the Pink feature is that random; she has that bad ass attitude that fits the song and its concept. It's a grower, not amazing, but not bad either.

5. W.T.P. - 3/5 Beat isn't bad. Hook is alright. It would get some plays in the club and on radio. Maybe a future single?
6. Going though Changes - 4.5/5 The sample is really tight. Eminem is spitting really nice on here too, really nice. Beat is tight too.

7. Not Afraid - 3/5 This is just boring to me. The beat, hook, verses, etc. - It's uplifting music but its boring.
8. Seduction - 2.5/5 Beat is ok. This stinks. It's getting old too.

9. No Love - 3.25/5 Interesting beat/sample. Beat picks up during the verses. Wayne's verse is decent. Em's hook is eyy. Em comes tight with the verses though. I don't know about this. It's kind of weird.

10. Space Bound - 4/5 Beat is good. Em is really spitting on here. Who is doing this hook? I can see some people finding it annoying but I think its pretty tight.

11. Cinderella Man - 4/5 Energetic beat. I don't like that repeating "cinderella man" though. The beat is pretty tight though and Em is spitting. Whoever is singing on here has a tight voice though.

12. 25 to Life - 4.5/5 The girl singing on here has a really tight voice. The beat fits everything on here perfectly. Really like this.
13. So Bad - 2.75/5 Beat is tight, sounds like it could be Dre? Eminem doesn't sound good on this at all though. His voice/yelling is annoying on it. Yep, Em says its Dre here.

14. Almost Famous - 3.25/5 Girl on hook has an interesting voice. She's not that good though. Beat is pretty bangin. Khalil did his mothafuckin' thing on this LP.
15. I Love the Way you Lie - 4/5 Always liked Rihanna. Beat is pretty hot. Fuck it, I like this shit.

16. You're Never Over - 2.75/5 Em's singing is TERRIBLE. For a Proof dedication, this is disappointing. Oh man he really can't sing and that's really evident on here.
17. Bonus - 2.5/5 Beat is ok. Em's raps are stupid on here though.

Best tracks:
Going Through Changes
Talking to Myself
25 to Life
Cinderella Man
Space Bound
I Love the Way you Lie

Decent:
Cold Wind Blows
On Fire
Won't Back Down

Average/Bad:
WTP (avg)
Not Afraid (bad)
Seduction (bad)
No Love (avg)
So Bad (bad)
Almost Famous (avg)
You're Never Over (bad)
Bonus (bad)

Overall: 7/10

Overall, I think this is a better effort than both Relapse & Encore, which is a very good thing. The best songs on here may not all be on par with the best songs on Relapse such as Stay Wide Awake, Deja Vu, Beautiful and Underground. But the consistency is the key here. There is not a single song on this album as bad as crap like My Mom, Insane, Bagpipes from Baghdad, Same Song & Dance, We Made You or Must be the Ganja. All of those Relapse songs I just mentioned sucked at best. If lucky, 2.5/5 songs.

This is an improvement IMO.

I know its a matter of opinion but i don't get how I read a bunch of people on here bad mouthing other artists for doing music that sounds like every other typical radio friendly song and them eminem comes and bring a whole album out that sounds just that and everyone is praising how great this album is?

So Bad is one of the best tracks, instrumental is crazy...I'm pretty sure it's a beat from the Relapse sessions. And the Pink track a grower?

Cmon Luna, you're a luna for this one!

Talkin to Myself or Going Through Changes could easily be bumped to a 5/5

Professor: What's so good about "So Bad" besides the Dre beat? To me, it's this song is tied with You're Never Alone as Em's worst vocal performance on the album.

16. You're Never Over - 3.5/5

17. Here We Go - 2/5


Without the following the album could've been one of the best albums ever made:

- Too much of Em's singing

- Em's anger (it's like he's on his period on every song, I really enjoy his lyricism but sometimes he needs to chill, it gives me a headache)

- Pink track, the last track, and Not Afraid's beat are crap.

^^^ Word Ozzie sounds dope on that hook!

Listening to this album last night Albums sounded a lot doper 2nd time around, a lot more introspective than I intially thought.

I couldn't help but think how huge this album is gonna be, so many cross over singles on there. If dre wanted/needed promo for Detox he shoulda jumped on that joint with Rihanna, that songs gonna be huge.

That "Almost Famous" gives me a Havoc vibe, anyone know who produced it?

Very good beat, sounds like Dj Khalil and New Royales to me.

Definitely could be, either way I could imagine Hav and P murking it

You're right.

But I realized one thing: when you put the album next to Relapse you realize how incredibly dope Relapse is (except the accent)...it's just the fact that Dr. Dre's invisible hand not only produced almost all songs, he was the executive producer as well, they both jammed and recorded the album together...it's consistent, just as a true classic should be. Not the case with Recovery.



Imagine Recovery's subject matter, Eminem minus the too much singing AND accent + Dre on the boards: best. album. ever.

No doubt homie, Em's trashing that album way to much, production was on some other shit for real. Em on his A game plus those beats = 5 mics

i think you guys are hitting the production pretty hard; sure it's not Dre & it's not mixed by Dre.

but what are these "poor beats"? i'm failing to hear them.

Im with you on that too bro. relapse also sounded like nothing thats been put out and recovery sounds like every other album thats being distributed at the moment.
