Got it for Christmas and I've been listening to it while driving (best time to soak in music) and I must say, this album, for being a sequel to probably his best album, was a huge let down. The first time listening to it, I was digging most of it. Now I skip through probably half the songs. The main ones I skip are the ones where the sample stands out. Rhyme or Reason, Berzerk and So Far are all ruined by the beats and samples.
Gonna make a copy without the shit songs, and replace them with the bonus disc songs.
warren g put out an album a few years ago and i dug it...
when you name your album a sequel of your classic album the expectations are automatically raised for the sequel to be equal or better.
that being said this album was decent, but no where near where that album is.
and i'm not even an em fan i just respect him as a mc.
This album is the best album to come out since Eminem dropped Recovery. I can understand the hate though because this album does take an unusually long time to absorb. Don't hate on it and give it a chance and you will see how serious this cat's lyrics are.
