I loved this album. This and Devin's One for the Road are my favorite albums of the year. The way eminem tells a story is uncanny, you hang on every word. Em is pure hip hop, at its most lyrical form. Nice touch in sampling Joe Walsh among others. Listening to the album was like watching a movie.
Hey you guys need to listen to Stan then Bad Guy ( Stan part 2 ) . Unbelievable what a lyrical genius 15 minutes of genius. This sequence alone solidify Eminem on the Mount Rushmore of Rap/HipHop. Easily Top 4 of All-Time. Biggie nor Tupac could story tell like Em can. blew my mind listening to this sequence.
Stan - crazed fan , then eminem writes back
Bad Guy -- Stan's little brother mathew comes to kill eminem, then eminem conscience takes over after he dies.
