Eminem’s New Album is One of His Best [REVIEW]
Friday morning, out of no where, Eminem dropped a surprise album called "Music to be Murdered By". After a weekend full of listening, here's my review!
Let me start by saying I am an Eminem fan. I believe he's one of the best rappers of all time, and the absolute best lyricist to ever put pen to paper. I was pretty ecstatic when I woke up to the news of the surprise album Friday morning. Even though I just wrapped one of my busiest weekends ever, I found time to listen to all 20 tracks multiple times and honestly I'm pretty blown away.
This album is vintage Em. He holds absolutely nothing back, and several tracks will take you in a time machine and pop you out in golden era hip-hop.
Like any album, there were a few songs that just weren't for me, like Leaving Heaven and Step Dad. This is not to say they are bad songs, they were expertly written like only Eminem can, they just weren't for me.
There were absolute classics on this album. Probably my favorite song was Godzilla which posthumously features Juice Wrld. This song is one of my favorite Eminem songs of all time. Other absolutely amazing tracks are Yah Yah
, Unaccommodating, I Will, and You Gon' Learn.
The album also delivers a song that I believe will go down in history as one of Eminem's most powerful and meaningful tracks. The song Darkness features an incredible (and challenging) three-verse double entendre coupling the rapper himself and the Las Vegas Shooter of 2017.
I believe this is one of the best albums of Eminem's career, it's honestly incredible that not only is he still making music, but he's still making truly great music.
Eminem is the GOAT.
