Let’s all hope that this isn’t really the final curtain call for the multi-talented rapper Marshall Bruce Mathers III. Launched by Dr. Dre, Eminem has stamped his distinctive style all over the rap genre, winning nine Grammies and an Oscar for his innovative beats and flow, and of course his controversial lyrics have kept him in the spotlight one way or the other.

This is his fifth album, the first Greatest Hits compilation, and includes three new songs as well as most of his hit singles from “The Slim Shady LP”, “The Marshall Mathers LP”, “The Eminem Show”, “Encore” and the “8 Mile” soundtrack. It also includes the live version of “Stan” performed at the 2001 Grammy’s by Eminem and Elton John. The one omission that comes to mind is “Superman”, and also maybe “Encore”, but there are enough hits to make most people very happy.

The new tracks are “FACK”, a funny track that more than earns a PA warning, the infectious “Shake That” (featuring Nate Dogg), and one of the best new songs around - “When I’m Gone”. Lyrics from “When I’m Gone” strongly hint that Eminem may be taking a break to spend more time with his daughter and niece, and he also may be working on expanding his production portfolio.

“What happens when you become the main source of her pain

"Daddy look what I made"

Dad's got to go catch a plane

"Daddy, where's Mommy, I can't find Mommy where is she?"

I don't know, go play, Hailey baby, your daddy's busy”

This album represents the very best of Eminem, plus a couple of excellent new tracks. Highly recommended.

If you're an Eminem fan you have all of these songs already-- but the CD is worth buying simply for the single "When I'm Gone" alone. Eminem is known for riding the thin line between telling stories and telling HIS story, and he is never more introspective than in "When I'm Gone." Personally, I wish this CD consisted of more of those songs-- of the songs Eminem says he likes but not many else do (like "Rock Bottom" which never made it to a single). Instead he delivers an even mix of those ("Mockingbird," "Lose Yourself," "Like Toy Soldiers," "Cleanin Out My Closet," and "Way I Am") with his commercial "dance" hits like "My Name Is," "Real Slim Shady," "Without Me," and "Just Lose It." "Shake That" is one of the new songs that falls into that category, as is "Fack"...sort of..."Fack" is more like "Drips" than anything else, and I wonder what the clean version of the CD will have to compensate. Anyway, this dual disc version is the CD to get because Stan's Mixtape includes "Renagade--" the Eminem/Jay-Z song previously released only on Jay's "The Black Album." While all of the songs on Stan's Mixtape can be easily found on any downloading system on the net, it's just nice to have the tracklist all together. "Curtain Call" also includes the live Elton John performance of "Stan" as a Bonus Track, in addition to Dido's version so you can compare the two. Unfortunately, the live version is taken straight from the CBS telecast of the Grammys, and though the cheering and live audience has been removed from the track, it is still the "broadcast suitable" version and therefore bleeped. Eminem is a powerhous in hiphop, and "Curtain Call" is yet another chart topper for him. Hopefully he'll be back in the near future with new fresh tracks that sound a lot like "When I'm Gone" because that is definitely the stand-out of this CD, if not of his career in general.

Alright. Something I will never understnad is why people who hate Eminem must insist on writing negative reviews as if they are going to convince fans. Look, just because you rate an album one or two stars, doesn't mean that you are magically going to change someone's opinion about music. The whole point of reviewing is to provide someone else who has similar interests to see if the CD is worthwhile. That being said, I'm sure that anyone browsing this CD already owns some of Eminem's previous CDs or has heard his songs on the radio. This is a greatest hits package, so every song that was on the radio or talked about in the media is on here. New songs are included as well, like "When I'm Gone", which is a great song. If you are a casual fan and dont want to buy every album and end up with a lot of filler, this is a good buy. Sure it's not ground-breaking hip-hop or even really "music", but its fun and different. Thank You...

1. Intro- I dont rate Intro's/Skits

2. Fack- When I first heard this I really didn't know what to think. It's no where near better than past songs but provides few laughs.

(2/5)

3. The Way I Am - Of course you know this song. In where Em tells the media to f**k off. I personally love this song.

(5/5)

4. My Name Is- One of his most annoying songs ever next to The Real Slim Shady and Just lose It. But it is was his first single and was in my music rotation to the point of I got sick of hearing it.

(4/5)

5. Stan - Guy obsessed with eminem. Writes him. Eminem doesnt write back. Guy gets mad and drives off of a bridge with his gf in the back seat. Eminem writes guy back. Eminem realizes the guy he saw on the news was Stan. Simple plot. Great Song.

(5,5)

6. Lose Yourself- Has a great message. To never give up on your dreams and to take an good thing when it comes to you. Also shows conflicts from the movie 8 mile interjecting with conflicts that Em was facing at that moment in his career.

(5/5)

7. Shake That- Not really lyrical but a song to dance with your friends to.

(4/5)

8. Sing For The Moment- One of my favorites. I love this song! Talks about what he goes through with fans/media/Kim cheating. He really puts it in a way that everyone can understand.

(5/5)

9. Without Me - Even though It has the same formula as My Name Is, Without Me is far less anoying. I often find myself riding in my car with my little nieces going crazy, dancing to it.

(5/5)

10. Like Toy Soldiers- Trying to stop the beef with Ja/Benzino. Shows that he is just trying to be the bigger man by stepping away.
