the album isnt bad its just em aint really talkin about s**t on it and yea i know dude was tryin to go the slim shady lp route with this album which is cool and everything but you gotta understand its like dude you been out of the game for 4, 5 years now people want to hear a lil more from you then just rapin, and k!llin b***hes, and s**t you know talk about something a tad more serious
When people say this I immediately question do you all not understand the concept of this album? Relapse represents Eminem "relapsing" back to his old ways, back to Slim Shady; at the same time coincides with his drug addiction that he went through, which is why you hear him talking about these "old" topics. People say he does this for shock value but I don't believe that, Slim Shady is a CHARACTER. He's a psycho serial k!ller who's forever on pills & will do w/e the f**k he wants and we get a damn good dosage of that.
You want you "meaningful/serious" songs then you have Deja Vu, Beautiful and the bonus Be Careful What You Wish For. Song for song the man rips every damn verse regardless of what he's talking about the the production is SOLID through and through.
And don't forget the man is releasing RELAPSE 2 at the end of the year. I'm positive
you'll ge the more serious Em on that album. The final track, Underground, is supposed to represent the return of EMINEM--"Here comes the rain and thunder now, no where to go or run to now, I'll disappear they'll wonder how looking for me I'm underground"--that's basically what happened to him. He just poof disappeared & was underground all these years but the man is back. f**k people this isn't rocket science lol.
