Disagree about Lighters. It's a solid track, while "I'm On Everything" is quite horrible.

Agree with the rating, good review. This EP was still a bit of a let down for me though, I was just expecting something different from these guys, and I really dislike "Lighters."

Very nice review, Ian. I don't think there's any more than three songs (five if you include bonus tracks Living Proof and Echo) where Royce doesn't outshine Eminem.

And The Reunion's by far the worst off the EP.

Really enjoying this EP. Only iffy track is "Lighter," it's awkward compared to the feel of the rest of the album.

"The Reunion" is my favorite after one listen, but that may be because all of the Detroit highway/road references really caught my ear.

Disagree w/ Em and Royce completely and easily outshining the rest on Loud Noises. Budden had the most impressive verse on that track imo.

Like this. Welcome 2 Hell and Take From Me are the stand outs for me.

Biggest disappointment of 2011. It's not even all bad, it's just so bland. This isn't Bad Meets Evil.

Agreed. I really think all of Slaughterhouse outshined Eminem on that song.

I liked this EP a lot. After hearing "Fast Lane" I knew it would be masturbatory technical rap and they pulled it off well. "Lighters" has an awful hook but the verses are still great, it's just hard to listen to thanks to Bruno Mars. Tyler, can you take care of this already?

it'd be way cooler if they did an album fleshing out the story that the original Bad Meets Evil track laid down but as I've come to expect from a post y2k Em, he dropped the ball.

I mean it's not a bad ep, if you take it for what it is (how many good hip hop ep's can you name?), but it really could be so so much better if some actual thought had been put into it. Really kinda seems like they just recorded whatever, threw it at the wall, and these couple tracks are the only stuff that stuck at all.
