    a week has passed by, oh my !
    and im still on that kami high !

    thought i would start this thread with bars, hi @StanSXN ...its time to get into this

    Ringer
    Not your typical structured song, from a fa---- point of view it seems like its all over the place, but for the trained ear, this is Eminem in a boxing match proven why and how he is the best, using many different flows without losing a step...lyrics wise its perfect tho it dwindles a tiny bit in the middle
    best scheme: Line in the sand
    Rating: 9.5

    Greatest
    i have been vocal about my hatred to rappity rap eminem, however he is using it perfectly here, he is actually sticking to a subject unlike his previous efforts..hook and beat amazing
    scheme: m16 (Actually best scheme on entire album)
    rating: 9

    Lucky you
    i wouldnt be surprised if this song is considered Em greatest or in the convo at least in the next 5 years...there is zero flaws in here, absolute perfection
    scheme: what happened to rap
    rating: 10

    Normal
    this is the weakest song on the album, but even the weakest song on kami isnt bad...he is obviously copyin drake but em has always been s-----y with relationship songs due to not having sex in a long time
    scheme: i dunno tbh
    rating: 7

    SS
    this album showcased perfectly why personal songs dont work for replay value...while this song is amazing its my least favorite...its too personal....however thankfully the addictive beat makes re-visiting a fun ride
    scheme: singing part in third verse
    rating: 9

    Not Alike
    finally...a royce verse i loved and not corny...phenomenal hook and Eminem sub machine gun with the beat switch is probably my favorite part of the album...it legit scary moment and i am sure kelly farted first time he heard that
    scheme: nina
    rating: 9

    Kami
    finally...a fun song that works!...this is the first great fun song Em made since without me...and this proves em can get away with some lyrics if the song is actually good
    scheme: the hook
    rating: 8

    Fall
    i didnt like this at first, it felt too slow for Eminem...but by my third listen i was in love...Eminem doesnt do this type of songs often...it almost felt like a romance song if you didnt understand English...the methodology of this song is say more with less..he owned everyone with saying as least as possible
    scheme: inspired
    rating: 9.5

    nice guy
    song is slept on...hard....i was too sleeping but the alarm hit...song is a must on an album full of hate..full of attacks...we needed someone to remind us Em is a nice guy..addictive hook and beat
    scheme: s--- my d-ck
    rating: 8

    Good guy
    i loved this song since the first listen..and i got hated on...slowly ppl admitting how good this song is, sadly not enough verses
    scheme: hurts my core
    rating: 9

    Venom
    VENOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...my personal favorite song...the energy is absolute phenomenal and not like that s-----y phenomenal song
    scheme: marvel that
    rating: 9

    final verdict: too early to call classic but if someone paint you a blue drawing is there a chance that drawing will be red in 5 months? tho i cannot call it a classic yet im sure it will be

    i encourage you all to also rate the album with me

    Copied from the thread adding ratings

    Ringer - very good but a little too long, 9
    Greatest - meh hook, nice verses. Fast rapping little annoying tho but not as bad here, 8
    Lucky you - amazing opening of eminem ls verse.. then again fast s--- (but also ok here). Joyner also ok 8.5
    Normal - best 'relationship' song in a long time. Not so generic. So I like it but he needs to stop doing these type of songs lol, 7.5
    Stepping stone - weird a--- sample but other than that classic eminem that takes me back. Great song 9
    Not alike - nice song. 8
    Kamikaze - kinda bad but for eminem standards not that bad 6
    Fall - love it 9
    Nice guy - meh 5
    Good guy - decent 7.5 love the outro
    Venom - love the 3rd verse rest feels a little like phenomenal but better 7.5

    The Ringer: 10 (had literal tears in my eyes when I played this for the first time)
    Greatest: 9 (love the Kendrick flow/lines)
    Lucky You: 10 (great feature from Joyner too)
    Skit: Fits perfectly
    Normal: 7 (good enough, better than 90% of Revival)
    Skit: Hilarious, loved it, GPS feature goat
    Stepping Stone: 8
    Not Alike: 9 (loved the mocking/copying on this song)
    Kamikaze: 7 (grew on me, hook still a little obnoxious)
    Fall: 10 (LOVE this)
    Nice Guy: 6 (used to skip, find it a little better now)
    Good Guy: 7 (kinda bland, but better than Nice Guy)
    Venom: 8 (hook is fire)

    Overall I'm still in shock that we got this album only 8 months after the train wreck that is Revival.

    a thread like this only strengths my view that music is a hard thing to make an argument for

    @Koolo you are really considering calling this album a classic? Can you not hear how poor his lyrics are?

    Ehm, Koolo, dude. Did somebody told you at least ohce in your life that you have unnormal selfesteem? I mean, you full of ego, pal. Why I have to even see some s--- like in the tittles such as: ATTENTION! KOOLO'S PRESENTS: MY OWN OPINION OF WHATEVER. Wtf dude? Plus you do not know nothing about technical aspect of hip hop, you making this pointless announcements of "ma best choiz of rhymescheme".

    It's like a 6 for me, which is a lot more than I ever expected after MMLP2 and Revival
