I agree with the review, almost 100%. He has plenty of vocal tricks here, but lyrically these are some of the worst performances of his career, and the 2Pac comparison with the production is on point, very rarely does he seem to really mesh with the beats.

I don't often agree with their rap reviews, but they give a lot of rap albums good scores, so it's not like they hate rap.

This is about right. The production is corny and it will either draw you away from the album or pull you closer in the long run. Seems like there are only a handful of songs actually worth listening to again. No Love is just corny now, too long of a wait to get to Eminem's verse.

I've read reviews from Pitchfork before, and most times, I find myself disagreeing with them... This is the case now. This review seems just kinda trite, really.

Eh...

I thought the review was on point.

I've tried listening to this album 3-4 times now, and I can't get into it.

On the strength of his name alone, Eminem got that 2.

The other .8 was just plain generosity...

I don't know, y'all... The album has grown on me, and I'm really liking it. It's dope. I don't see any of the complaints this reviewer is saying... And, this is not because I'm a Stan to anybody... However, I have never actually agreed with any of their reviews... The big one that got me kinda pissed at them was their review for Little Brother's "The Minstrel Show", which is one of my all time favorite hip hop albums, and they gave it a 6.0... For real?! A 6.0? And, they gave that rating based on some nonsensical reasons and stupid expectations.

They also gave Buckshot & KRS-One's album, one of the best albums from last year (it got a perfect 10 rating from rapreviews.com), got a 3.9 from these guys... Yeah, I don't like these reviewers...

what? its 2.8 out of 10? thought he means out of 5. If it was 2.8 out of 5 then that would be bang on

The bit i strongly agree with is that em seems way off beat in alot of the tracks

While the rating they gave the album is harsh the critiques about Eminem were on point.

I hated the album, but, it was definitely higher than 2.8. The comments pretty much sum up what I've posted on here.

and pitchfork placed the marshall mathers lp in it's top 200 albums of the 2000's.....it seems you're trying to put a "slant" on reviews that you disagree with....



props to 2d for actually discussing what was said in the article...


why are you trying so hard to make this review seem on spot? It's an opinion, but a s**tty one at that. Pitch fork fell off with their hip hop reviews. They seem extremely biased now, no matter how articulate they get their point across. they gave a lot of quality albums mediocore to bad reviews. the consensus so far is that this album is on par with some of his best. To give it a 2.8 is f**king laughable. They gave encore, possibly his worst album a 6.5. This should tell you something. Are you going to tell me that Encore was a better album than this? People shouldn't look at pitchfork for reviews anymore. they have seriously fallen off. I think they do this to come off as different and edgy, and it gets somewhat of a Buzz when a big time artist gets such a bad review. Cuz now they have you spreading it and it gets people talking.

People who enjoyed the album shouldn't let a few reviews take away their enjoyment from it



Just to add

This album has the same feel as TES, just with more complexity in rhyme scheme. It can be corny to,i'll admit but it doesn't dimish anything overall. How can they give that a 9.1 and this a 2.8 when they're similar in almost every regard? I can always respect an opinion, even when they say the album is wack. But when a review from a critic sounds like it was done from someone at boxden, s**t can't be taken seriously.
