Here's my review guys:

This, the third of the bonus tracks for Eminem's Encore album, is an overlooked CLASSIC. His most lyrical, with his most captivating flow? Perhaps not, but there are almost no songs in Eminem's discography (or anyone else's for that matter) that sound quite like it, or evoke the same emotions. It is built masterfully in the way a freestyle might be, with no breaks for a chorus, only "straight spittin" for two-and-a-half minutes, yet the subject matter is like that of a normal Eminem track, with references to many of his thoughts and feelings about the rap game or his own life woven in. For the most part, Eminem's freestyles, even the CLASSIC ones, rely heavily on bars upon bars upon bras, most of them with little true meaning. Some may argue that Rabbit Run, a CLASSIC in itself, actually sounds fairly similar to this song, (similar structure, serious topics), but there are distinct differences. Rabbit Run, as "real" as it is, is spoken from the perspective of a fictional character, whereas Ricky Ticky Toc feels as if it should have much more impact, as it is an unrestricted look into the mindset of an actual person. Truthfully, Rabbit Run may represent the thought process of an earlier, but very real, Eminem, but the fact that it was released so long after Eminem's thought process truly was how it was portrayed in the song takes away from some believability. Long story short, Ricky Ticky Toc has an advantage over Rabbit Run because it is, without doubt, coming from the mouth of Eminem, not a fictional character. The only other song that has some similarity is Monkey See Monkey Do. Yes, it is a song very like Ricky Ticky Toc, but rhymes and delivery of the latter, while not perfect, are still a league above those of the former. No other tracks, with all of Eminem's work considered, come close to sounding like Ricky Ticky Toc. As an aside, the instrumental, simplistic but effective, helps to perfectly capture the "I can do this all day" tone that Eminem was surely shooting for with such a song. This tone is also achieved through Eminem's seamless transitions between the various topics throughout; he clearly can keep a song going for as long as he chooses, and can keep a cohesive sound whether there is one included topic or ten. All of this allows listeners of Ricky Ticky Toc to feel beautifully arrogant and empowered. It is truly a wonderful song, and some may even consider it a CLASSIC.

This song definitely stood out to me when I first heard encore.

Egh, lame track, tbh. The weakest of the Encore bonus songs.

I always thought it sounded like the Invasion "freestyles"...stylistically and lyrically, it's comparable to Invasion 2 and 3. It just got repackaged as an album song.
