Default Re: Marshall Mathers LP 2,11-5-13

The album is good, not amazing, but imo naming it MMLP2 and not having similar or part two's of certain songs like Stan, Way I Am, marshal mathers, criminal, etc. was a mistake. He said he wouldn't be naming it MMLP2 if it didn't meet the standards of the previous. Comparing this to mmlp1, unfortunately it is a letdown. I think the biggest problem with Em these last two albums has been his choices in production/producers. He needs more DRE and Bass brothers. Too many singers on his hooks/chorus as of late too.

Not over the monster but definitely it should've been on the album.

I thought it was an amazing track, had a very Macklemore (when he's good) feel to it. But everyone likes different kinds of music, got respect for all y'all

Bad Guy is from the perspective of Stan's brother.

I agree on that, its like he gets some 2nd rate beats and thinks that with his skill he'll take them to the next level. And he does, but the songs could be so much better if he just used better beats.

I listened to the whole album today.

My favorite track is...

Beautiful Pain

...I worked out to this today for a couple of sets. I also like Bad Guy as well, especially after the five minute thirty second mark of the song.

I agree, his lyrics are rarely the problem, it's his beats that should be questioned. For example Bad Guy could've been crazy with a better beat, like something dark or gritty, and him doing the hook.

I think he should have a song produced by Kanye.

It's growing on me. It shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as the first mm cd but i can't say it's awful because it's really growing on me save a few songs.

for me, most songs can be put on repeat.only ones i skip are love game and monster and the desperation bonus track. other than that it's a solid album.
