Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ron Hart
Hailed as the first great hip-hop film since the pioneering Beat Street and Wild Style, Eminem's big-screen debut, 8 Mile, is backed by a soundtrack that's considerably tougher than leather. The film is loosely based on the controversial rapper's salad days in the Detroit urban underground, and fittingly, for the soundtrack, Em attempts to recapture the grit and grime of his early demos, despite a multimillion-dollar studio budget. The result is one of 2002's strongest hip-hop soundtracks. Three new Eminem tracks provide the nucleus of this collection, including the rock guitar–fueled first single, "Lose Yourself," and the menacing "Love Me," featuring Shady Records' Obie ...

Barnes & Noble - Ron Hart
Hailed as the first great hip-hop film since the pioneering Beat Street and Wild Style, Eminem's big-screen debut, 8 Mile, is backed by a soundtrack that's considerably tougher than leather.

The result is one of 2002's strongest hip-hop soundtracks. Three new Eminem tracks provide the nucleus of this collection, including the rock guitar–fueled first single, "Lose Yourself," and the menacing "Love Me," featuring Shady Records' Obie Trice and 50 Cent, both of whom also contribute several hardcore solo joints to the soundtrack. Exclusive cuts by Jay-Z, Nas, and Macy Gray provide entertaining filler between Em tracks, while veterans such as Gang Starr and Rakim sound as spry as their younger counterparts on "R.A.K.I.M." and "Battle," respectively. Though not as inherently compelling as the film it supports, 8 Mile is a worthy addition to the collection of any ardent Marshall Mathers fan.
Rolling Stone - Kelefa Sanneh
Eminem contributes three new songs, all self-produced, which happen to be three of the most ferocious hip-hop songs ever recorded.

    A good soundtrack

    I don't usually buy soundtracks, but this one showed potential and didn't disappoint. Some songs, such as Wasting My Time, got boring quickly. But most others kept my head nodding like one of those bobble-head dolls.

    Weak

    If you are expecting anything as great as the "Eminem Show", you'll be disappointed. This is lacking the originality and funk that made the Eminem Show so great. It is a good mix of talented artists, but I don't think it's any of their best work.

    Missing Tracks

    This CD is tight, but if you saw the movie you know that the movie includes some sweet tunes from 1995 Detroit. None of those appear on this disk. It would be a 5 star with those songs.
