    With the flop of Revival and the critics reception of MMLP2, I can safely say this is the best album since Relapse.
    From the chaffing of rappers on most tracks to the jesting and mockery of newcomers, Slim Shady has returned to the industry he used to dominate back in the early 2000's.
    With collaborations ranging from Joyner Lucas to Jessie Reyez we see a side of Eminem we have never seen.
    Will he be able to keep it up?

    Hate to say it, but when the dust settles, I think most people will go back to recovery over this.

    And this is from someone who hates what recovery did to ems career

    This is great for initial reactions and impressing people, but I don't see people going back to this for these songs even a year from now. It's definitely what eminem needed though. He needs to do more spontaneous stuff. But Eminem is not gonna make timeless music again till he fixes his hook game and songwriting. Ditching the popstars was the first step, but hook game still weak

    No. Recovery is better.

    It is his best album since Recovery though. The best music he's made in 8 years.

    Even if true, isn't that more than kanye, pusha, jay-z, nicki minaj? Only what .. post, travis, and cole would have done more YTD? 250 is good imo. You can't compare it to people who run a single for 9 months, collect a billion streams, THEN put out the album.

    Relapse flop <-- fast return with Recovery
    Revival flop <-- fast return with Kamikaze

    He deeply cares about the critics, now he just needs to keep listening to them. I feel like the people around him don't tell the truth, lol.

    Yes - I hope he continues this momentum and doesn't bow-out now... I want that 50 collab album.

    This whole turnaround is remarkable.

    Majority of those songs are in the ballpark of say a Fall or a ringer...you can argue maybe ringer is better but on MMLP2 there's more of them. Thus there's more good stuff on mmlp2 imo
