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