Eminem - Rap God

I listened to this in the morning. Love the flow, like the lyrics, not crazy about the beat. I wasn't crazy about "Berzerk" either, which sucks since I loved Recovery. I do like "Survival" though.

when i think of the rap gods, eminem doesn't come to mind 'cause i don't think he's been consistant enough compared to the legends of the game, i do like the direction of the song and the album though, taking it back to the old school flow, now if he stays at this level then yes he could be a rap god

I'm loving it. The beat isn't for me but man, the flow is insane! I really am loving Berzerk as well, all the nods to old-school rap in the lyrics and video is just fantastic, and the beat is just fantastic. I've given Survival one listen and it didn't really take for me, maybe I just need some more listens though.

I'm really excited for this album. Eminem feels like he's back to his old lyrical self. So may plays on words that I feel like he lost in his last few albums (like "starting from scratch" and "why be a king when you can be god"). He also seems to have lightened up a bit on these tracks. I mean, by Eminem's standards. He still's on the attack but there's also jokes in stead of just line after line of murder.

well i like that he name checked some of the hip hop legends like nwa, pe, and run-dmc, now i'm looking forward to an album in that level, the direction he's taken in recent times makes me say i'm actually looking forward to an eminem album since y'all know i ain't one of his biggest fans

I agree completely. There's nothing worse than a "sequel" album that doesn't have the artist channeling the original. I suppose it's nice that he tried a different direction with the sound, but the music isn't as good as Recovery. I'm not crazy about what I'm hearing, though it could be much worse.

His performances on SNL seemed legit...except for him lipsyncing one of the songs!?! Rick Ruben and Skylar Grey were there too.

So, what are everyone's thoughts on the album. I've only listened to it a few times, but my first thoughts are that his delivery is great and the lyrics mostly good. I like how he continues to stay more open with his subject matter, but I'm not crazy about what he music he selected. "Berzerk" grew on me some, but I wish that and the other old school joint on the album were mixed differently...so they had the energy of the tracks on Rev Run's album. Some of the production is just underwhelming.

The worst part is that "Don't Front" is the best track he recorded, but it's not on the album?!?!?!?! If anyone can get their hands, PLEASE send it my way!!
