Muze PNote With Recovery, it becomes obvious that Eminem's richest albums aren't necessarily his most structurally sound, which isn't much of a surprise when considering the rapper's full-on embrace of flaws and contradictions. This lean, mean, bipolar machine began life as Relapse 2, but when Shady decided he wasn't really Shady at the moment, and that he was no longer keen on Relapse -- or the last two albums, as he states on "Talkin' 2 Myself" -- it became Marshall Mathers time again, so damn any 11th hour issues. This results in an album where a shameless but killer Michael J. Fox punch line ("The world will stop spinnin' and Michael J. Fox`ll come to a standstill" from "Cold Wind") is followed by a song with another, less effective MJF joke ("Make like Michael J. Fox in your drawers, playin' with an Etch-A-Sketch"), although that song is the lurching heavy metal monster "Won't Back Down" with P!nk, and it could be used as the lead-in to "Lose Yourself" on any ego-boosting mixtape. Ignoring these contradictions, fans can feed on the energy, the renewed sense of purpose, and Marshall doing whatever the hell he wants, up to and including shoehorning a grand, D12-like comedy number ("W.T.P.," which stands for "White Trash Party") into this emotionally heavy album. It's fascinating when Em admits "Hatred was flowin' through my veins, on the verge of goin' insane/I almost made a song dissin' Lil Wayne" and then "Thank God I didn't do it/I'da had my ass handed to me, and I knew it," before sparring with said Weezy on the Haddaway-sampling "No Love." When the recovery-minded "Going Through Changes" gets back on the wagon by sampling Black Sabbath's very druggy "Changes," it's a brilliant and layered idea that's executed with poignant lyrics on top. Add the man at his most profound (the gigantic hit "Not Afraid") and his most profane ("You wanna get graphic? We can go the scenic route/You couldn't make a bulimic puke on a piece of corn and peanut poop" from "On Fire") plus one of thickest lyric booklets out of any of his albums and the fans who really listen are instantly on board. It may be flawed and the rapper's attitude is sometimes one step ahead of his output, but he hasn't sounded this unfiltered and proud since The Marshall Mathers LP, so to hell with refinement -- bring on the hunger and spirit of 8 Mile. ~ David Jeffries

Expert Review Eminem - Recovery - CD Review
By: Brian King Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 7/6/2010 1:24 PM
The great Eminem is back with his best batch of music since 2002's The Eminem Show. His latest release, Recovery, which was leaked a few weeks ago on the Internet, made its way to stores and became available for legal download on June 21st. Over the past few years, Eminem has been in a self-admitted slump, when he was on drugs and going through rehab. Eminem even apologizes for his last two albums, 2004's Encore and last year's Relapse....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "RECOVERY is his most casual-sounding album in years...He sounds content to be rap's wittiest head case."

Spin - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's still no MC more capable of rapping a circle into a square, while making you enjoy his displays of sick lyrical imagination."

Entertainment Weekly (p.74)
- "Eminem returns to the verbal acrobatics that defined his early work, showering these 17 songs with dazzling cadences and multisyllabic rhymes." -- Grade: B

Billboard (p.32)
- "Eminem certainly sounds recharged on 'Recovery,' delivering nearly every verse with the kind of breathless, amped-up energy that defined early hits like 'Lose Yourself.'"
