EMINEM is awesome and hell'a funny. His songs have a lot of four-letter words and swearing, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't buy his CD. His high, fuzzy voice gives his rap a texture that makes his music interesting. Everyone has to own an EMINEM CD.

-Dan Kent quote

Eminem inteands to scare you with all his cussing, but his album is definatly a must for any rap lover!

You'll need a well-developed sense of humor to fully appreciate the debut of Eminem aka Slim Shady. Produced by hip-hop super-producer Dr. Dre and released on Dre's Aftermath Records, the album features an infectious lead single, "My Name Is," a winning mixture of alternative rock and rap. One listen will have you hooked on the chorus, but future plays will reveal the lyrical gymnastics that Eminem kicks out so effortlessly.
Obsessed with fantasies of sex, violence, drugs, and a general depraved indifference to life itself, Eminem's alter ego, Slim Shady, is constantly involved in a battle of good vs. evil leavened by a high degree of irony. Dre even drops in on an mind-blowing cameo playing the shoulder angel on "Guilty Conscience" to Eminem's devil. You'll need a few listens to absorb everything that Eminem is about lyrically. SLIM SHADY might offend the faint-hearted, but that's probably Eminem's intention.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (4/1/99, pp.93-94) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) "...Eminem earns his buzz as a bona fide rap star one tasteless insult at a time, battling the world with a mouthful of adjectives and a boxful of laxatives."
Spin (5/99, p.148) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Eminem [aka Marshall Mathers] is humorous enough to be an honorary Beastie goy, and his scenarios are so far-fetched the songs almost never sound as ugly as they actually are. Mathers's hard-knock raps translate hip-hop for folks with Wu-Tang decoder rings, articulating suburban anger and violent apathy through the lens of white kids' experience..."
Q (1/00, p.84) - Included in Q Magazine's "50 Best Albums of 1999."
Mixmag (5/99, p.146) - 5 out of 5 - "...Perversion, paranoia and slapstick humour meet in Eminem's gob and get spat out 19 to the dozen....makes great voyeuristic entertainment..."
Muzik (1/00, p.69) - Ranked #8 in Muzik's "Albums Of The Year '99"
Muzik (5/99, p.82) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...It's dazzlingly funny and gloriously offensive..."
CMJ (2/8/99, p.30) - "...Pairing Redman's gutter humor and metaphorical dexterity with Canibus' raging themes, the Detroit native has matched the high expectations surrounding his brilliant new album..."
The Source (2/00, p.95) - Included in The Source's "Top 10 Albums of the Year [1999]."
Melody Maker (5/1/99, p.36) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...By far the most distressing thing about THE SLIM SHADY LP is how seductive it is - largely due to Dr Dre's production work, it captivates and thrills, and this is an unavoidably amazing body of work..."
