    Some gems but overall mediocre/too overwhelming to listen to.
    I just to love Royce's verse on Echo

    Honestly, the greatest duo album off all time. Lighters, a kiss, and especially Loud Noises are classics. I would rate it above MMLP, SSLP, TES, and Kami but not quite the caliber of Shady XV or Revival. I still listen to some of these songs weekly. I can’t believe it’s already been 8 years. Time flies, I remember bumping this in my old Pinto. Also the hidden Nate Dogg feature on this is epic.

    The Reunion is the only great song on there. Both Royce and Em are on better form right now, so I hope they do something worthy of their early days.

    Half of the album is good, half of the album is trash. 5/10.

    Yet Royce sucks on Reunion tbh.

    Take From Me has a nice topic sorta (shots @Koolo he's the real winner here) but not a listenable song.

    The album had some great rhyming and technical rapping I guess but literally no song that is enjoyable to me except maybe Fast Lane. Welcome to Hell was a cool intro but also not something I would choose to listen to ever again. Lighters is the worst song he ever made.

    The songs they did soon after were also meh except maybe Vegas & Psycho Killer.
    Lmao @ that shitty song from shady xv or southpaw, "Raw". f--king awful.

    Caterpillar & Not Alike > any rocye/em song after eminems prime imo. Maybe forgetting one tho.

    I thought Royce was fine on Reunion. Both playing their roles, and playing off each-other pretty well. 'I like your swagger and flow. Can we hook up?' I said 'you just used the word swagger so no' got a chuckle out of me.

    Agreed on nothing being all that listenable. Probably unpopular but I found Royce was superior on pretty much every track. Em is deep into his shouting and run-on punchlines on that project.

    Royce is fine but he's so boring imo. And yeah he was not that bad but Eminems shouting punchline shitty rap ruined almost every song. And tbh the production didn't help either imo. Except a kiss and reunion.

    I really think every eminem release has a few great or even classic songs but this has (to me) nothing that stands out.

    U can say what u want about relapse recovery mmlp2 kamikaze encore but all of them got something even if its surrounded by mediocrity.

    Wasn't really the kind of album they should of made. Eminem was still in his pop phase.

    BME2 should blow it out of the water
