Overview

On his third consecutive gem, Eminem taps into his Detroit Rock City roots and unleashes his inner White Panther, delivering his most abrasive collection of songs to date. The Eminem Show, produced largely by Em himself, finds the formerly Shady one letting go of the cartoonish thump he perfected with Dr. Dre in favor of a grittier sound befitting an artist who shares a hometown with Iggy Pop and the MC5. What hasn't changed, however, are his venomous lyrical assaults, and along with his perennial targets (his mom and his ex), new casualties include hip-hop producer Jermaine Dupri, 'N Sync's Chris Kirkpatrick, dance music wiz Moby, and Vice President Dick Cheney's wife. And while fans are accustomed to Mr. Mathers bashing both public and private citizens, mixed in with the latest chapters in his screed is some of the most candidly raw rhetoric of his short but momentous career. Tracks such as "Cleanin' Out My Closet" and the ballad "Hailie's Song," where Em makes a noble yet off-kilter attempt at singing, are examples of the artist's ever-intensifying reality theater, while "White America" and "Till I Collapse" display his newfound mastery of rap-rock fusion. Although they'll probably receive the most hype, "Sing for the Moment," a remake of the Aerosmith lighter anthem "Dream On," and the lead single, "Without Me," pale in comparison to show-stoppers such as the swinging "Square Dance" and "My Dad's Gone Crazy," quite possibly the funniest song in the Em canon. Forget the real Slim Shady -- The Eminem Show presents the real Eminem standing up front-and-center.

I was young once, loved the rebellious music, i grew out of it, but this guy I still listen to this is my only rap album i have left and the only one i still like
Guest More than 1 year ago
Wow! Need I say more? I had never listened to a rap album before, my kids wanted to buy this so I took a listen. Now, I'm a fan, just like "Stan". Eminem is genius.

Eminem has done it again! This album is by far his best. The way Em describes his feelings towards Kim and Hailie, among others, is phenomonal. This album let's every listener get a feeling of Eminem's everyday life. What he goes through, how he's felt about his family, how he grew up and made it big. The lyrics for every song give one a very big slice of the Real Slim Shady's heart and life.

The whirlwind of controversy that has surrounded Marshall Mathers since his mainstream debut, The Slim Shady LP, has been nothing short of Marilyn Manson-esque. With each album, however, this talented emcee has gone from a novelty act to one of the best in the game, and with The Eminem Show, Eminem displays nothing short of a modern day miracle: a white kid putting out the best hip hop album of the year. Eminem begins the album with "White America", a track which Em examines his popularity through his affect on the modern day TRL crowd and why he believes congress has beef with the emcee. On "Cleanin Out My Closet", Em gives us a deeper look at his troubles with his ex-wife and his much-publicized feud with his mother. There are many great tracks here that allow us to hear the lyrical genius that is Eminem, such as "Square Dance", "Say What You Say", and the Dr. Dre-produced "Business". Even the filler ("Without Me", "Drips", "Superman") don't necessarily require the skip button. But the diamond in the rough in this collection is "'Til I Collapse", a hardcore track with a Nate Dogg hook where Em angerily spits his venom for all the right reasons at his detractors "In this industry I'm the cause of a lot of envy, so when I'm not put on this list this **** does not offend me" and offers any emcee to bring it "So this is like an open attack I'm launchin' at 'em, the track is on some battlin' rap, who wants some static?" With "The Eminem Show", we get to see an emcee at the top of his game, but not at his pinnacle. One can only wait for his ILLMATIC or BLUEPRINT.

Do yourself a favor and get this cd. IF you liked any of EM's other stuff then you will like this too. I need to get another copy myself because I lost it. It is great every song is awesome especially his daughter singing. I don't know about the clean version though since it seems pointless to clean up his words.

I JUST WROTE ONE OF THESE BUT INFO WASN'T RIGHT. EMINEMS LYRICS BEATS ANYONES. HE TELLS HOW HE FEELS WITH OUT CARING WHAT OTHERS SAY. ALL LYRICS ARE TRUE I BELIEVE THERE NOT JUST SONGS IT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW AND IN THE PAST. IT IS OFF THE HOOK. I ALSO BELIEVE THAT EMINEM HAS SO MUCH AGGRESSION AND IF HE DIDNT HAVE HAILIE OR HIS FANS HE WOULD HAVE SO MUCH STREES. I FEEL HIM IN EVERY SONG EVER WRITTEN.

Eminem's new album provides an insight into the seemingly twisted mind of a quintessential white boy gone bad rapper that is Marshall Mathers. Look further into his lyrics (Cleanin Out My Closet, Hailie's Song...) and you are left with the brilliance of a rapper who is, in reality, a marketing genius. Nicely played.

"The Eminem Show" is a good CD with a variety of diffferent songs. I like this CD becuase Em Raps about things that other rappers don't. He talks about real life, and makes the situations funny. He has talent, and really shows it in this CD, with unique and amazing lyrics and beats. For anyone thats a Eminem fan, this CD is a must. For those who are new to Emimen, make sure you don't listen to this CD in front of younger siblings, or your parents. Overall, I really enjoy "The Eminem Show" and think its a classic Rap CD.

I think that this album is Eminem's greatest so far. I would encourage him to make more great songs and albums such as this one. As far as the headline that I wrote goes Eminem is almost no longer just another guy rapping in a group, this CD is mostly about him rapping solo. This CD I rated 5 stars because this is one great piece of work, great job Eminem. P.S. I hope your next CD is as good as this one was.

I love this album i like the songs Hailie's Song, Without Me, Buisness, Cleaning Out My Closet, Superman, My Dad's Gne Crazy, When The Music Stops, and the remixe's Goodbye to Hollywood and Sing For A Moment, this is a great album. Eminem is the greatest rapper of all time and I can't wait until 8 mile with him in it. He's my favorite singer of all time. I like D-12 ad Dr. Dre with him too. Skits I like are Curtains Close, Curtains Up, The Kiss, and Steve Berman.

EMINEM-This is by far the best album EMINEM has put out. I don't think any body 'journalist & writers' that get paid realy understand were this hip-hop is coming. It's like them coming to a unknown world and giving opinions I think this Album is history and I could have no arguments that EMINEM is the best rapper of all time and there's "The EMINEM Show to prove it.

I have all of his work and find him to be a person who says a lot of the things that the rest of would like to say, but won't. Dr. Dre is the absolute greatest and if he backs Eminem, so do I.

well ive both downloaded and bought the album cause its that good im a huge eminem fan and after listening to it i must say that i like every song.. the only thing that i didnt like as much about this album though is the fact that he left out a bunch of sound effects.. like on the other albums he raps about funny stuff and makes lots of sound effects in the background.. he seems like he got madder at the system or somethin its kinda hard to put it into words but i know what i mean lol

back in 2000, eminem lost the grammy for album of the year to steely dan. steely dan, who most of us probably never even heard of, won album of the year. how did that happen? how could eminem loose with 3 #1 hits (the real slim shady, the way i am, stan). steely dan didnt even sell as many cds as eminem. the marshall mathers LP caused a storm in the music industry but eminem wasnt given recognition for it. they took the grammy away from eminem on purpose, i believe. well, thats the past. i just bought the eminem show recently, and steely dan is comin nowhere near it. eminem WILL win the grammy for album of the year next year. if you listen to the new cd, you will see why. deep, straight from the heart lyrics on every song, unforgettable words, beats and melodies. nothing about jewelry, cars, ice, money bling bling and all that fake rapper's stuff on this cd. the eminem show is what hip-hop is about. expression of one's self through music. this is true hip-hop. today, it seems that many rappers are not about the music. they are about the money and the cars. eminem deserves props as one of the few artists who keeps it real.this is it. the eminem show goes beyond the requirements for the album of the year.

The Eminem show may be the greatest album ever. Starting with ''Without me'', it also has ''soldier'', ''till I collapse'', ''Hailie's song'', ''Business'', and more amazing songs. I think the Hailie's song is the best song in the album because it shows how much Eminem cares about his daughter and it impressed me. I recommend it to everyone. You gotta have it!!!

I really like all of Eminems music because he tells things like they are and doesnt candy coat anything to make it look good. Hes had a rough life with his abusive mother and unpleasant relationships such as his most recent one with his ex wife Kim Mathers. Alot of people think that he is just an angry person. This is true but he has good reason and a right to be angry. His way of dealing with everything going on is to write it in his music and so he does. The funniest part about his music is when he makes fun of people. Most examples are not appropriate to print but one good example is when he raps " got ticked off and ripped pamela Lees lips off kissed em and said i didnt know silicone was supposed to be this soft." I loved this cd and i cant wait for his new movie 8 mile to come out.

I never really heard much of the Slim Shady LP, and the Marshall Mathers LP sometimes sounded as if he was being controversial for the sake of being controversial, but it was still an amazing album. The highlights of the new album? Oh, too many to mention. The controversy has been turned down EVER so slightly and it sounds mature, and most importantly, it keeps flowing like hot oil over glass, all the way through. Whereas Eminem attacked in Marshall Mathers LP, he questions more in this album. From ''Sing for the Moment'', and ''When the Music Stops'' where he looks at his real-world influence on fans, to ''Without Me'' where he just jokes at everything (you've all heard this one, blah blah blah), the tracks keep rolling and rolling. The highlight of the album would be without me in my opinion, but only by a wafer-thin margin. The lowest part of the album would possible be in ''My Dad's Gone Crazy,'' and only because Hailie's voice will grate ever so slightly over time. That's the best I can come up with. Buy this album, if only for the jibes at everyone else...
