Editorial Reviews

Product Description

THIS TWO DISC SET INCLUDES BONUS CD WITH THREE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SONGS.

Amazon.com

Eminem's fourth album offers few surprises, but still enough pleasures to carry the day. As evinced by Em's pre-election, pro-voting "Mosh," this is not exactly the same Eminem who seemingly crapped on anything and everything. Encore finds a surprisingly mature Eminem waxing reflective about his battle with Benzino ("Like Toy Soldiers") rather than unloading both barrels. However, it's not all elder statesmanship: "Puke" goes after his ex-wife Kim with incredible scorn, and "Big Weenie" showcases the familiar juvenile humor that made him famous. If Encore has a clear weakness, it's the bland production--the same plodding sound that he and Dr. Dre cooked up on the previous three albums. The exotic flavor of "Ass Like That" catches the ear, but many others run off the same monotonous minor-key melodies and tempos. Of course, people buy Eminem albums to hear him spit first and foremost, and in that regard few fans will be disappointed by Encore; it'd just be nice to see him switch up his sound at some point. --Oliver Wang

Customer Reviews

There is no good serious songs on the entire album except maybe 3 (including the 3 on the bonus disc).
Zack
I would like to think that he still has it, and maybe he just isn't trying anymore, but it's kind of hard to say.
Joshua Robertson
Like Marshall LP was differn't from Slim Shadey LP, and Eminem Show was differn't from Marshall Mathers LP.

Well, as another reviewer already posted, Em appears to be running out of material. Let me start by saying that i am a huge fan. And because of that, this album was an even bigger disappointment. Eminem Show was a fantastic CD. So were his others. But this one falls FAR FAR short of the first 3 (not counting 8 mile). It even falls short of some of the rather clever mix tapes and diss tracks he's done recently.

Don't get me wrong, there are some good songs. Toy Soldiers is a good one for example. Great idea to use that beat. But for the most part its just him alternately rapping about loving or hating Kim, and loving Haley, for 15 songs with a slightly different beat in each of them. There are also very few guest appearances (even Dre and 50 are barely on there). I guess i saw it coming when Just Lose it was the first single out and i saw that it was nowhere near as good as the other first singles that have come out (My name is, Guess whose back, or even purple pills and My band on the D12 albums). While the video for Just Lose It is pretty funny, the song isnt. The screaming gets annoying after a while, and there are not really any clever lyrics. (But the video is funny). And with that being said, its still one of the best songs on the CD.

With over 2 years to make this CD Em could definitely have done better than this. It clearly shows that he's been spending all of his time producing and not writing.

i have listened to this album for two weeks now. The first time i listened to it, i thought that it was absolutely rubbish. But, after listening to the album it does grow on you a lot and begin to enjoy it. Encore is a new style for eminem changing from the eminem show. The best songs for me are

Like toy soldiers

Rain Man

Spend some time

Mockingbird

Crazy in love

However, unlike the eminem show which every song was likeable, Encore does throw up a few songs that just dont cut it. In my opinion they are

My first single - annoying beat

Ass like that

A new direction for eminem in which he includes more politcal messages and differing styles.

I have mixed emotions on this album, but for those not wanting to read on, the album is excellent and I'd definitely recommend you purchase. Now, having pre-ordered Encore from Amazon.com I gave in to the temptation of download a leaked copy and can now only thank myself for doing so before writing this review. I, like many opinions I have come across, instantly felt disappointed and felt that this album somewhat lacked the complete feel of an Eminem album I was so used too.

It is clear there is a lot more effort for comedy tracks which stands out clearly when compared to the albums more serious tracks which don't go that deep. There is a decent balance and it is clear Eminem has a business mind as there are various tracks which you could easily hear young teenage girls signing along too, but on the other end of the spectrum there are tracks which those who consider themselves a 'true hip hop head' couldn't fault. A point I should note (and I'm sure many more feel similar), although being critical on this album, this is because we are after all, comparing this to arguably the best hip hop albums of all time (Marshall Mathers LP and The Slim Shady LP) and with that I shall state that this is 90% better then anything else being brought out of the hip hop world.

In terms of content, this carries on where the Eminem Show left off, no longer are we shocked by the quality of the rhymes, urged to rewind and listen in awe and Eminem spits another bar which surprises. The lyrical genius simply isn't on this album and it's almost a completely different artist to who we knew up till 2002. But, the same could be said for the Eminem Show, which became his biggest selling album.

I was a huge Em fan before this album came out but the truth this album sounds like it was made to quickly and he didn't put any thought into the lyrics especially the hooks. Instead of having his usual one "stupid" song like "Real Slim Shady" or "Without Me" he put two or three on the album this time. And now hes using jibberish to rhyme instead thinking of something significant to say. I miss the stuff he came out with that actually had a message or some substance to it now it sounds like hes reminsicing over all the things that has happened to him. He's lost his creativity and he especially needs to stop singing in the songs. If you want Eminem at his finest buy Marshall Mathers LP that is by far his best album to date.

Okay so I've read the most recent 100 of the 190 reviews that have been posted so far for this album, and you know what? I'm surprised in a big way to learn that dozens of people feel the same way about Eminem's four major solo albums as I do: The Real Slim Shady, The Marshall Mathers and The Eminem Show, all were awesome, and established Eminem as perhaps the best rapper out there. But.............okay...so, this isn't quite there. Nope, not at all. Who cares if other rappers could never touch Eminem in his now past-tense prime; not only does Encore feel rushed, formulaic (as in the calculated "shock and awe" on a few songs, the corny funny first single, the endless references to his family, demands for legitimacy, etc), but it's just bored: he doesn't care anymore, and if you don't care, you won't be awesome.

Problems: He just doesn't sound as awesome as he did before. His flow the way it used to be is gone, those polished, awesome, multisyllabic rhymes that came and went and just blew you away, are gone. I don't really care about the beats, they don't bug me one way or the other: if the lyrics were awesome, the samples ("step by step...etc"; "go crazy on you,...etc") and the bass-beats would be awesome, too, because even if Eminem always had the benefit of Dre's and his own almost pop-catchy beats, what made him the best was the lyrics, man, the lyrics, this is crap.

And: remember in "Haile's Song", when Eminem says "I can't sing, but I wanta f*ckin sing"? Well, he really wants to sing, now, he sings on half the tracks on the album, but the moment is past, he isn't angry anymore, he's bored, he doesn't have anything more to say...I'm totally disappointed. I keep listening to this, and it's all a disappointment.
