Even the most jaded and cynical Mr. Mathers returns to drop some serious science on all suckah MC's who still doubt his rhyming skillz. Even the most jaded and cynical hip-hop fan will be compelled to proclaim Em's latest effort as completely dope, and some may even say it is the bomb.… Expand

Eminem goes unforgiving hard-as-nailsIm going to go ahead and EXPOSE METACRITIC AS GARBAGE real quick, if anyone wants to stick around...
Eminem goes unforgiving hard-as-nails in-your-face and mad-as-hell on MMLP1, and Metacritic slams him for being over the top. They claim the classic was a 78, and Yeezus, the ten song experimental embarrassment that Kanye can't get over 3.2 stars on Itunes, is an 85. Ok, fine.
He lightens up on The Eminem Show, and Metacritic says it's too soft and they've heard it all before. 75.
He mixes in other artists and dumbs down the "Slim Shady" persona on The Reup, and they absolutely trash it and say he's lost his voice. 50. A 50, supposedly a worse album than IANAHB 2.
Do You Sense the Bullsh.it Yet.....
He brings back Slim Shady as violent yet comedic as ever on Relapse, and they say he's forcing the issue. 59.
He changes his content for the more mature, stays witty, address' his past demons and shows immense growth as an artist on Recovery, and they say he's boring. 63.
THEN, on MMLP2, he combines Recovery, MMLP, and the Eminem Show in an experimental, mature, hard-as-nails, yet emotional reflection on his career, and they give it a 73. Thats 7 points worse than Teflon Don, by Rick Ross.
