Recovery was 2.8, Shady XV is 2.0. No, they loved him on Recovery.

"Mathers' great talent—his 180-degree ear for how everything can be made to rhyme with everything else, how chains of these rhyming lines can be erected into dizzying towers—has officially devolved into a tic. His verses denature all sense of pronunciation and meter and natural speech rhythm; you could probably read this review as one long Eminem verse. "


they went in lol

Opinions are neither right nor wrong. They just are :unsure:

But your opinion is that they are right?

Eh, the time magazine had a good point though. Even when Eminem tries to "rechannel his rage" or whatever that spoke to teens and scared their parents in the early 2000s, he gets shut down by the new, social-justice aware internet. Thought tbis was a good point because it seems to be exactly true; You guys love it when he goes back to stuff like that, pissing everyone off, but I doubt he'd be able to sell as many records as he did in the past doing that in this day and age. If he released MMLP now, I don't think it would speak to as many people.

Interesting contrasts:

what HHDX calls "rhyming stream of consciousness", P4K calls "babble".

"...more traditional take on bars and rhymes, songs not broken down to X bars" vs. "...eyes glaze just reading the lyrics, beat exists to tell him when to stop".

"...aware of monotony, but still keeps the music fresh" vs. "...musicality of a leaf blower"

I would trust HHDX before Pitchfork any day.

Yeah I mean its clear when you read a review about Eminem they have an agenda, and have a bias against him. Why even write it in the format of a review then, go write it in a blog or some shit. Opinion pieces do not belong under the guise of a review. What Pitchfork does is actually incredibly irresponsible. They're either not smart enough to figure out his rhyming or they just have this unshakable bias. At least when speaking about their "review" of MMLP2... I haven't heard the new album yet.

Also can someone explain to me whats more misogynistic about the cartoonish levels of violence in Eminems lyrics and the actual objectifying of women that happens in any given Kanye West Album, Chief Keef album or Lil Wayne album. Thats not even to shit on those rappers, but it feels like its a double standard when they use it as a talking piece for the article.

If this was violence towards men or anyone else I would laugh in the same way, it's supposed to be ridiculous, taking shit too seriously is a failure on the part of the individual. If he was actually promoting and threatening actual violence there would be an issue.. but he's not, he's been here for 15 years at this point and not once has he laid a finger on a single female celebrity. Taking something seriously thats not meant to be taken seriously doesnt make sense to me. The way he does it is so impersonal anyway, half the shit he says can be reduced to insert persons name here then continue on the rhyme. He's not a newborn I'm sure he's capable of telling right from wrong.
" Life can change your directions, even when you ain't planned it
All you can do it handle it, worst thing you can do is panic
Use it to your advantage, avoid insanity manage
To conquer, every obstacle, make impossible possible
Even when winning illogical, losing is still far from optional.." -T.I.

For what it's worth, Shady XV is currently sitting at a 59 on metacritic.
