All the purchase options for relapse on eminem.com offer the two tracks as an extra download once the cd is relased on the 19th. So I don't get what pisses you off?

Thanks for the info....
But what pisses me off is that the Artist & Label want you to go out and support by buying the retail album in-store...which i understand. But why release 2 HOT a.ss BONUS TRACKS which is available for download only!

The point is...i didn't want the bonus tracks as downloads, i wanted it to compliment the actual retail album, so you get everything in one package! In addition to that, what about the Eminem fans out there who don't have internet access at home, this results in them buying the retail CD...but automatically those fans miss out! As a consumer that aint right.

Finally, as i mentioned in a previous post...the incentive for people downloading the album (legally from Eminem.com & iTunes) is that they would receive 2 bonus tracks with it right...but that so-called 'incentive' automatically gets thrown out the window because the 2bonus tracks would then eventually get leaked around as it has right now! Therefore making it cost-effective and pointless to legally download from 'Eminem.com' & 'iTunes' in the first place.

IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY ROUND....LEAK SNIPPETS OF THE BONUS TRACK ONLINE....BUT YOU ONLY GET THE FULL VERSION WHEN YOU COP THE CD RETAIL - MAKES MORE SENSE!!!
THAT WOULD DEFINITELY TRIGGER ME TO WHIP TO THE LOCAL HMV STORE!!

I understand that you like those two tracks, and I also understand that they're good tracks in their own right. The problem with them is that they do not fit the theme of the album at all. Even if they're better than 'we made you' or some of the other singles, their feeling is completely different from the rest of the album. If eminem had included them on the main release, Relapse would have felt cluttered and all over the place. As it is now, it feels solid as it has one theme, and enough variation between the tracks to not have it be monotnous.

This album concentrated most on his flow and rapping skills. He didn't limit himself to 'real' tracks for the purpose of being able to go crazy lyrically. And since he only included tracks that demonstrate this on the cd, it illustrates its purpose more clearly.

I'm sort of glad they didn't end up on the physical cd even though I do like them more than some of the tracks that did (we made you for example). I think overall I'd appreciate the album less because I wouldn't be able to really look at it as an entity anymore.

EDIT: I should also mention that I'm the type of person that despises "best of" compilations. I feel like taking the tracks out of their natural environment takes away from their power.

honestly


lyrically this album is 5/5

production wise its a 3.8/5 (with a few exceptions maybe a handful)

the accent is an acquired taste, but honestly alot of people are complaining he has outgrown this type of rap when they know its a Concept Album...Basically he's playing the role of a particular character in a particular backdrop with an overall particular theme to the whole album, same shyt is jay-z's KC.

i feel like about 5 songs kinda messed up the flow of the album. not necessarily wack but it just didnt fit especially when you have intros and skits that establish a specific theme for the whole album. The Dark Humorous Slim- shady persona wasnt as persistant throughout the album as it could have been with some of the "Fart jokes, just lose it" side of eminem rearing its head

not a classic but its still a great album, hopefully this is just a prelude to a classic album

Underground was the perfect way to end it tho, hands down the best song on the album, s**ts epic

Ugh, no. Eminem has a much better understanding of what makes a cd great than you do. It's not as simple as "pack the best songs you can and f**k everything else".

He gota a couple catchy tracks on there ill give him that. A friend i sold a bootleg to forced me to listen to some of it during a 4am McDonals run.


Hello is decent. Insane is crazy lyrically but still forced, and too out there. Who wants to rap about his stepdad raping him?



I can see why _______boys relate to it tho. Yes its hot in comparsion to everything else about but so was Kingdom Come. His fans gonna flock to it because there is nothing else.


Give me MMLP , SSLP or even Infinite over this anyday of the week.

i agree with nxn , those two tracks were really rough drafts...you can tell by the subpar lyrics, beat and eminems half a.ssed aproach on them, they aint up to par with the rest of the album ...though i would have rather had seen my darling get the dr dre treatement and put on the album, i dont think "what you wish for" was relapse material, it would have been better to put my darling in front of 3am and scrapped same song and dance(i hate that f**king beat) as it would have set the tone more for what he went through before relapse, that song explains alot.

oh an heavenly sword, if you dont like it why the f**k do you keep posting like we give a f**k? ok we get it, you said 300 pages ago you hated the album but its getting tired now, just shut the f**k up....maybe your trying to overcompensate because you dont see many others hating on it, i dont know but this is like the 300th post youve mentioned the stepfather r*pe scene in insane, shut the f**k up we all know you were molested by your step dad.
