Album Review: Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP 2

MMLP2

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 • Eminem • Score: 3 out of 10 • Aftermath Records/Shady Records • Producers: Dr. Dre & Rick Rubin

Track 10 best describes this album: “Brainless.” Mommy issues, nobody liked me growing up issues, I got rich and showed them issues; all combine for the million dollar question: Where is the violin sample on “Little Man Syndrome”? One may notice elements of Joe Walsh, Billy Squier and others, but it’s hard to call the rest of what surrounds it music. For those interested in Manson and Yoda references and a visual of Eminem taking a giant deuce, then by all means, swallow a fifth of vodka and drive to a record shop. Hopefully the alter ego in the trunk doesn’t attract cops along the way. – Carl Anthony
