This review is from: The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (Audio CD)
In my opinion, this is Eminem's best album since The Eminem Show, but i'm not sure where to place it among his first three albums yet. This album is more lyrically sophisticated than any album he's released and he's back to his tip top form when it comes to telling great stories. He's also able to create a great amount of diversity throughout the album, provoking almost every emotion possible. I just think it's funny how some people can't be satisfied with anything from Eminem lately. I understand why people can hate on Encore(obviously), Relapse, and Recovery for certain reasons, but this album is one of the best rap albums to come out in a while. If an up-and-coming artist released this album it would receive much more appraisal from critics than it is right now. He'll never be able to recapture the sound of the MMLP because it's a different time and situation. When Eminem's career is done for good, this album will be considered a classic.
