    Okay

    Eminem is a great rapper, but this albumn was not my favorite. To me, he went in a new direction with Encore. I'm not a huge fan of rap, so Like Toy Soldiers and Mockingbird were my favorite tracks. I thought both had some sort of hidden meaning, and were deeper than most rappers go. Overall good, but not great.

    back to basics

    eminem has finally let go of his mother and of kim to some extent, they're still there but not nearly like they used to be. dr dre has come up with some fantastic new beats to go with em's new found anger. it could not have been timed better that to come out when the nation is as divded as it is, and he goes straight for the jugular of president bush, bin laden and the war on terror, however, going after jackson however is easy meat and not worth the talent this man posesses. he is also funnier on this album almost going back to his debut, new targets seem to have brought out a more thought out approach, so thank you eminem for making me laugh and think.

    Mixed Emotions

    I tried HARD not to like Eminem. I refused to see 8 Mile, then I went and saw it. I refused to buy his albums, but I bought 8 Mile Soundtrack and D12's album. I refused to listen to his interviews, but got caught with MTV2 way too long. I despised him when I read the Benzino article and listened to the tape--but then Benzino said the exact same word he criticized him for fourteen times and suddenly, this argument seemed so ironic. I despised him for making fun of Michael Jackson being burned. But Michael continues to bewilder me with the nose jobs and his comments. I thought he was a clown for making the "My Name Is..." song and the "B**ch" song on the D12 album, but always bumped "Superman" and never got enough of "Stan". I cannot front on this man's lyrical talent and I won't even try to front on Dr. Dre's ability to make me dance. But I still didn't like Eminem. Then I saw the "Mosh" video and gave up. As much as I tried to hate Eminem, I am repulsed by Bush more. And Eminem was the only rapper (minus Mos Def) who actually pointed out the Dumby-in-Office-for-4-more-years for being who he is: one great big disappointment. I see why people don't talk about politics and religion. That one song made me a fan for life. As long as Eminem keeps pointing out the silliness we call a "president", I will forever be grateful. On top of that, he keeps making hit songs like "Like Toy Soldiers", "Puke", "Em Calls Paul" (silly), "A** Like That", "Evil Deeds", "Never Enough", "Mockingbird", "Crazy In Love"...forget it, everything on the album but that stupid "My 1st Single" and "Big Weenie" song. I give up on hatin' on 'em, because the pros keep outweighing the cons.
