This isn't a bad album. Relapse was horrible just like Encore. Recovery doesn't have the replay value I THOUGHT it had in 2010, but it's not a bad record either.
This is the first record he's back to full scale rapping and having fun while doing it. It's not a perfect album but it's his best since The Eminem Show. Can't disagree with you more on this review. Well written though!
This is almost exactly how I feel. It is well written, but 3.5 across the board is a bit harsh. Opinions are opinions.
I was actually grasping at adulthood when MMLP came out, so I guess I'm at fault for reveling in some nostalgia. Overall, I enjoyed the record despite its flaws.
