  1. A watered-down mix of big-budget tricks and studio sheen.
  2. This CD will sell solely on Eminem's four contributions, which include the uncommonly restrained current single 'Lose Yourself'.
  3. 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.
