Great little album, I picked up my copy on Friday and have given it a few spins.
I don't think anyone can deny that this is the type of Eminem we want to hear, I couldn't believe it when the beat switched up on 'Not Alike' and he just went off, I literally had the biggest smile on my face hearing that for the first time.
The one critique I can think of personally is that he should have kept the whole album as a spazzing out project instead of putting in the couple of more mellow tracks at the end.  Also, is Dre doing the Suge thing now as executive producer :D  His name is nowhere in the credits?

I DONT THINK DRE WAS INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT OUTSIDE OF INPUT ON WHAT SHOULD BE RELEASED N WHAT SHOULDNT

MAYBE SOME GHOST-MIXING HERE N THERE, BUT I DONT THINK HE WAS REALLY HANDS-ON MUSICALLY

Dre apparently told him one song went too far (not sure in what way) and they dropped it, so he was still involved in some level and an executive producer credit was probably still applicable.

I still don't know why he had a production credit on that skit on Revival. I mean, if he did the work, fine, but when I heard he had a production credit, it wasn't exactly what any of us were looking for.

After listening to this solidly for the past week, the only track that I think Dr. Dre had any involvement in, production-wise, is 'The Ringer'.  There are some bass-drops throughout the track that sound like his doing, and when the extra layers of the beat come in two thirds of the way through it certainly has a Dre-like feel to it.  That, and possibly 'The Fall'. 

I have a possible idea about the track that Eminem said 'went too far' in his interview with Sway.  It's purely speculation of my own, but since the album is called Kamikaze and he's been vocal about his hate for Donald Trump, perhaps it had lyrics about flying a plane into the White House?  Like I said, just an idea of the sort of fucked up topic Eminem would put in his raps, but obviously the label heads would never let something like that be released, especially since the album dropped not long before the 9/11 anniversary.

so i been listening to this album and i gota say em kills it wit the flows more than ever and the lyricism is top notch .. he got some songs on here where he flat out raps like tech n9ne

but musically, the beats and choruses is average

so i put this album on par with mmlp2 and slightly below relapse - itís def good to hear that heís not done like we thought when we heard revival tho

Em' disses media critics back who trashed his new album with full page ad...

Eminem took out a full-page ad to diss music critics who panned his new album

Eminem and his labels took out a print ad in The Hollywood Reporter's magazine to diss the music critics who panned his latest album, "Kamikaze."

THR's editorial director, Matt Belloni, tweeted an image of the ad on Thursday and asked whether it constituted "the print equivalent of a diss track."

The ad has text superimposed over the album's artwork and is designed to look like an Oscar-campaign ad, but it reads "Not for your consideration!"

The surprise-released "Kamikaze" debuted at No. 1 in 103 countries in August but didn't get great reviews.

Fresh off a viral YouTube diss track, Eminem is trying his hand at dissing people the old-fashioned way: by taking out full-page print ads.

Eminem and his labels ó Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment, and Interscope ó took out a printed ad in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter's magazine to diss the music critics who panned his new album, "Kamikaze."

It features quotes from negative reviews, including one from THR, which called the album "the work of an aging artist trying, and failing, to remain relevant." It notes that "Kamikaze" debuted at No. 1 in 103 countries in August and concludes with the words "Thanks for the support, a**holes!"

"Kamikaze" has a 62% critical rating on Metacritic, an improvement on the 50% rating for his 2017 album, "Revival," whose critics he blasted in multiple tracks on "Kamikaze."

the album is dope and I think its already outsold Revival so he should just let the critics be
