Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Marshall Mathers LP2 (Deluxe) [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Eminem,sometimes misunderstood,often troubled,usually controversial,but always damn honest sincere and never shy about his emotions. My life at times felt and was very similar to Marshal,so at times his music has helped me say a lot of what I wish I could. Sometimes he said things I didnt want to hear but needed. I am no Stan,and I dont have a troubled relationship with an ex,I often got along exceptionally well with all my past loves,but Eminem has been an identifiable figure since I first heard that first rap bout the Real Slim Shady. It opened me up to listen to more. I have owned every cd he has put out,have had my faves and my songs I could do without but he alwys had enough solid raps to make every cd a great buy. Version 2 of the MM LP continues his same proven and reliable track record of making a buy very worth every penny since there are plenty that will see high rotation in your playlist.
Make sure you buy the Deluxe version,there are a few songs that are amazing that are not on the cheaper version and you will regret not having them. My absolute favorite song is Desperation. While it has the standard Eminem rap,it puts one hell of a twist to it that makes it something we have never heard from him and damn I love it. I have always been good in the past of listening to a cd right away and picking the songs that will be hits,this is one he could have never put out to promote the cd,but I gaurantee this will be one we hear a lot in the near future. The sound,the beat,the lyrics,I urge everybody to give this a listen and request it on your fave station,I really wanna see what kinda video this song will have so we all gotta rave about it so mtv or bet will get a video of this rap. Seriously...Desperation,if you dont know or dont give it a chance you might be taken by suprise.
I of course am always excited bout new Eminem,after getting Berserk a few weeks back and its scattered and bizare lyrics I was a little worried,even tho I loved the beat I was a bit confused by the words. Now that I have the whole cd on my hard drive I gotta say those little worries have been put to ease. I also read the rolling stone story a bit ago,how naming this version 2 was not just a stunt,but that he wanted to put that same energy into this,he wanted that same quality that we got from the first one. It wasnt just done to sell a cd,he did it because he put that same love sweat and tears into it,he did it to really let the fans know this was gonna be the best he could do,that we could expect the same energy and effort,that we would get another cd full of amazing songs destined to be hits. Along with another reliable pairing with Rihanna for one track he put together a couple others to an amazing level along with plenty of his own solo stuff to make this cd everything he hoped it would be. Eminem,you did it again. I am impressed,and proud of ya. Mabye I am getting too old for this music,but I sure am not ready to give it up,and if Eminem keeps putting out this high quality stuff I aint gonna give it up till I am dead.
