  • Summary: What good's an Eminem movie without an Eminem soundtrack? It's not all Slim Shady here, though, as the soundtrack album incorporates other artists (Xzibit, Macy Gray, Jay-Z, Nas) in a mix of old and new tracks.

  1. Features only a couple new Em ditties, but they're gems.... Better yet, most of the rest of the disc is made up of solid, original material.
  2. 80
    [Eminem's] three solo offerings... are the strongest cuts from a very strong album. [Jan 2003, p.84]
  3. 80
    A frighteningly powerful record. [Jan 2003, p.124]
  4. Wisely, Slim Shady has focused on quality over quantity and delivers a trio of his best-ever tunes.
  5. Eminem's urgent radio hit 'Lose Yourself', you already know. It's excellent.... The two other new Eminem tracks '8 Mile' and 'Rabbit Run' are on the money, too, the latter being the shortest, shoutiest thing he's ever done. Elsewhere, things get more patchy.
  6. 70
    Mathers slips only when he tries to play out the movie's rags-to-riches vibe with his friends.
  7. With better production and more focus, 8 Mile could have been a hip-hop version of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Instead, it's a frustrating collection that bogs down two of the best songs of Eminem's career with a lot of interchangeable filler.

    Kyle: if you are pissed that em is only in "4" songs than all you had to do BEFORE you bought it is turned it over and looked at the track listing. and I believe he is featured in more than 4 songs on the CD... Lose Yourself Love Me Rap Game 8 Mile Road Run Rabbit Run If you want to hear eminem and mostly eminem, then buy his CD. Soundtracks are never 100% one artist. Expand

    Even though a few songs are weak the Eminem tracks more than make up for it. Plus Jay-Z, Gangstarr, Nas, Rakim, and Xhibit all put in excellent tracks on the album. Expand

    A rather impressive collection of songs. Eminem is a standout here, with the songs "Lose Yourself" and "Rabbit Run" ranking among two of the best songs Eminem has ever recorded. If you love hip-hop, then this is the disc for you. Expand
