Eminem - 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2'

Eminem - 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2'

Looking back now and then isn’t necessarily such a bad thing. Just ask Rick Rubin. The Def Jam founder and hobo-bearded producer-for-hire is a guru of going back to basics, helping everyone from Johnny Cash to Adele shave away the bullshit and...

Album Review: Eminem - 'Recovery' (Island)

Eminem - 'Recovery' (Island)

"Fuck my last CD, that shit’s in my trash" , says the most famous rapper in the world about his multi million selling album 'Relapse' on 'Cinderella Man' . You can see why he’s keen to disown it: not only was it shoddy, but, as Eminem’s...

Album Review: Eminem - 'Relapse'

Eminem - 'Relapse'

He created a monster, and just like in all the best B-movie horror flicks, the monster came back to destroy him. Five albums spent channelling the pill-guzzling psycho Slim Shady left his creator, Marshall Mathers in the grip of drug dependency,...

Eminem: Curtain Call – The Hits

Eminem : Mosh

Bless them for trying and everything, but it’s unlikely that many of rock’s most prominent anti-Bush campaigners have done much to change anyone’s vote. REM can’t even write a catchy tune these days, let alone effect lasting political...

Various Artists : More Music from '8 Mile'

Various Artists : More Music from '8 Mile'

Though this cover rather cheekily boasts a tasty mug shot of Eminem , this isn't an Eminem album. Instead 'More Music From 8 Mile' is a faithful soundtrack to the movie rather than an inspired by collection, like last year's US chart topping '8...

Eminem : Lose Yourself

Eminem : Lose Yourself

As '8 Mile' is a 'Rocky' for the 21st century, its fitting that the film's title track should rattle along with the vim of a hip-hop 'Eye Of The Tiger'. Forsaking the free-form comedy of 'Without Me' or the introspection of 'Cleaning Out My...

Eminem/Various Artists : 'Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture '8 Mile'

Eminem/Various Artists : 'Music From And...

Two things are certain. One: Eminem 's not Madonna . While Swept Away got swept away on a tide of braying abuse, the word from those American critics who've seen 8 Mile is that Eminem is Oscar material. "It's a classic" said one. "Up there...
