Eminem Believe was a great song to follow Walk On Water

    It was perfect. When Walk on Water ended and Em said, ''I wrote Stan,'' then ''Believe'' began and he said, ''And I started from the bottom.'' It was the perfect song to follow.

    But then after a few songs, the album took a weird turn and ''River'' had such a different sound. I think @EminemBase was right. The album needed to be more cohesive. Then it actually could have been a potential classic. There were too many pop songs. How can you have ''Offended'' and ''Need Me'' on the same album? Also ''Remind Me'' was weird. Fun, but weird.

    Maybe here are the songs he should have kept on...

    Walk on Water
    Believe
    Chloraseptic REMIX
    Untouchable
    Revival (But a Song)
    Like Home
    Bad Husband
    Framed (just for fun)
    Nowhere Fast REMIX
    In Your Head
    Castle
    Arose

    And then maybe the other songs he could have thrown in on a bonus disc. I'm telling you folks. Believe is a good song! Perfect song to follow Walk on Water! But unfortunately he had too much junk in the trunk on the album. But this COULD have been a Classic album! Especially if he made a Revival track with that interlude! The theme and the potential was there!

    oh yeah man it was perfect. It makes These 2 songs make such a good intro to the album. It's so good. But then Untouchable comes in and destroys the good feeling.

    It's still beyond me how someone could think Untouchable is a good song for a single.

    They were thinking more about the message eminem was trying Tibet across, rather than the actual sound of the song. Really silly.

    It was perfect. One of the best placements I've heard on an Em album ever, it had me so hype for what was going to come - after hearing 'Walk on Water' thinking 'that s--- is an intro' and it was, then hearing Believe right after it like 'that was perfection', I even like the Chlora & Untouchable placement.

    But then it goes to total s---.

    Wow we finally agree on something @EminemBase ! The album WAS off to a brilliant start! If only it had continued and the songs felt more in place! It could have been some great work!
