Sep 5, 2018While some may feel the clap-back approach reeks of bitterness, there's no denying how skillfully Em runs through these six minutes of lyrical acrobatics. He keeps listeners more attentive than he has in quite some time with an abrasive attitude that was missing from Revival.
Sep 4, 2018Eminem was really rapping across an entire LP again (something I’d never say elsewhere: Rihanna is not missed), stans were going to like it too much, while his inflammatory remark is sure to prevent most any of the unconverted from being able to engage with the music itself.
Sep 1, 2018Eminem really got back to his old self. I didn't really like Revival and rated it less than 5. However, this album is possibly top 3 best ofEminem really got back to his old self. I didn't really like Revival and rated it less than 5. However, this album is possibly top 3 best of his album. He comes out, disses people, spits fire, got rhymes, flow and speed. It feels like he really let "Slim Shady" out on this one. Beats are by Dre which is noticeable. Also, Marshall put down his heart in this which made it feel more genuine and well made, which wasn't as obvious for Revival - which only had 1 or 2 "Okay" tracks. All 13 tracks are great, even though 2 are skits. This album is worse than the Eminem Show and Marshall Mathers LP put on par with the Slim Shady LP. Recovery and MMLP2 are close too, but let's be honest, Eminem shot way above expectations after Revival. I believe this album could become the album of the year - all tracks are great and relevant. The only thing lacking, for me, is a laid-back passive-aggressive track such as Marshall Mathers or I'm Back, even something like Say goodbye to Hollywood or Headlights (beat wise) would have been amazing. Otherwise 10/10 album.… Expand
Sep 2, 2018Eminem è tornato carico come non mai, soprattutto a causa delle critiche ricevute per il suo precedente lavoro "Revival".
L'album, infatti,Eminem è tornato carico come non mai, soprattutto a causa delle critiche ricevute per il suo precedente lavoro "Revival".
L'album, infatti, concede ampio spazio alla risposta a quelle stesse critiche ricevute l'anno scorso, senza però fossilizzarsi su di esse. Attraverso l'uso di beat (prodotti da Dre e dallo stesso Slim) dallo stile che ricorda un po' quello dei nostri "cari" amici trappari, il rapper americano arriva anche a parlare di questi ultimi e della loro musica, facendo capire più e più volte quanto a lui non vada a genio. Possiamo perciò parlare di dissing a tutta la scena trap del momento.
Non mancano le frecciatine a Trump, che però hanno uno spazio marginale. Ad esempio, vi ricordate Like Home? Ecco, non ci sono canzoni interamente dedicate al Presidente degli Stati Uniti D'America, ma semplici barre (come in "The Ringer", ad esempio).
Non manca nemmeno lo storytelling classico di Eminem, che ritroviamo in Normal, Nice Guy e Good Guy.
A ciò si aggiungono la sua metrica eccezionale (che ricordiamo, nel corso degli anni è solo migliorata) ed il suo flow in grado di coinvolgere chiunque ascolti le sue canzoni. Quest'ultimo, inoltre, può mutare anche 3 o 4 volte nella stessa canzone. Insomma, Em dal punto di vista tecnico si è riconfermato essere il GOAT.
I featuring sono pochissimi (3) e perfetti. Royce tira fuori il meglio di Eminem, l'inaspettato Joyner Lucas porta freschezza in Lucky You.
Infine, ho parlato fino ad ora di Eminem. Ma penso sia meglio parlare di Slim Shady. Perché sì, ad esser tornato, in realtà, è proprio Slim Shady. Con tutta la violenza e irriverenza che esso si porta dietro, come da tempo non accadeva.… Expand
Sep 1, 2018Eminem?? In 2018 ?? Does this still have any relevance ??
The answer is YES!
After Revival's failure, Eminem seems to have learned to dealEminem?? In 2018 ?? Does this still have any relevance ??
The answer is YES!
After Revival's failure, Eminem seems to have learned to deal with criticism and realize every mistake made last year. Kamikaze brings good featurings, good beats, good lyricism and even good choruses (in which Eminem is not very good but this album sounded good)
Responding directly to everyone who doubted Mr. Mathers and criticizing the current scene of Hip Hop was the main touch to bring Kamikaze to the top, the name of the album closes 100% with its main idea (Eminem dropped this surprise album without any marketing)
BOTH: I think the last three tracks did not fit into the album's atmosphere and could very well have been replaced.
The first few seconds of the Nice Guy track are impossible to hear, seriously.
Venom made it seem like a continuation of Phenomenal, not that this is bad, but it's more of the same.
A great album, a great comeback from a great rapper.

They are just badThe only songs on this album NOT worth even clicking on and trying out are Nice Guy and Good Guy, both with Jessie Reyez. They are just bad and her vocals are really unpleasant to listen to.
Otherwise, it's a really good and enjoyable album, I can give it about 8-.… Expand
