I am an Eminem fan. This is a true statement. But this latest single is far beneath what I think Eminem is really capable of... He's starting to remind me of Weird Al. Especially with the "poking fun at every celebrity in Hollywood" thing, I just think it's played out. "Crack a Bottle" was better, but not by much.... I miss the old Eminem with "lose yourself" "the way i am" "white america" "stan" "superman"....THAT is good eminem!!

NOT "we made you"

There was a time, and it seems so, so long ago, when a new Eminem album was a Big Deal. Big hit songs, lawsuits, tabloid scandals, outrage - but more importantly, razor sharp lyrics, infectious beats - and the sense that we were finally seeing something new in the stagnant world of commercial rap music. Sadly, times change.

So, as per, its the same "funny" single Eminem always introduces his albums with. My Name Is, Without Me, Just Lose It.. and while the first two were whipsmart snapshots of the time (although Just Lose It was both boring and irritating in equal measures), We Made You sounds like Eminem in total auto-pilot mode.

There's always a worry that if you copy yourself too much you're going to sound like some watered down self parody, and everything about this song makes it look and sound like some Slim Shady Saturday Night Live sketch. From about four years ago.

Why exactly is Eminem talking about Jessica Simpson? Why is she dressed up in her Daisy Duke outfit? And who the hell cares about Jessica Simpson anymore, anyway? And why is he telling Britney to dump K-Fed? And an Amy Winehouse "Rehab" gag? When was this garbage even written?

Pop culture jabs are all well and good if a) they're topical or even remotely relevant and b) they're funny in the first place. This song fails on both levels. While the Eminem of old was a perfect critic of the world around him, here he sounds like he's spent the last five years hiding in a box. When he then throws in fart sound effects you actually start to feel embarrassed for the guy.

This is vintage Em' and we are so glad he is back. It is lyrical and musical genius especially when all we hear these days is the same recycled garbage played over and over again.
Em' pulls a something very few artists can do successfully and in a time when we really need a good laugh, this reminds me to never take myself or others too seriously.

This is a great first single for Eminem! Crack a Bottle was just a promo single to get people excited for the new material and this is the first official single. It is so much better than Crack a Bottle as well. The lyrics are funny and the music is unique but awesome. It's a great single and I'm so excited to hear the rest of Relapse!

Bottom Line: If you enjoy the funny, not so serious Eminem songs, you will LOVE this song! Download it now!!! :)
