    According to wiki it was released on may 15. Was there some late changes of the releasedate during that time?

    Without question. Eminem has struggled to even come close to this level of quality since and this was the last glimpse we had of the old guy

    This was the last true Eminem album we’ll ever get. At least he flowed properly on the beats and had some good skills with rapping on the album. The production was as good as any Eminem album and great beats for that type of album.

    But then people bitched about the accent and Eminem went downhill ever since yelling over rock/pop beats then mumbles like on no favors randomly. Rihanna saved his career for the recovery album. But now he’s on his own and the numbers and critical reception shows no one except stans can stand listening to his garbage music anymore. Eminem was on the right path with relapse 2. Take the coccaine, elevator, my darling, careful what you wish for verses for example. Laid off the accent and still delivered on beat and sounded like the real Eminem. Just never seen a rapper fall off this bad in life. It’s entertaining to watch how bad his projects keep getting. He already destroyed his legacy to where going back and finishing the real relapse 2 album would be the only way he could semi redeem himself. I think he lost the skill and voice to deliver on those beats though.

    I tried listening to it. It’s garbage. It’s on the same level as revival to me. Shitty Disney rock type beats, sounds like a call of duty anthem soundtrack. Eminem crying over everyone hating on revival, yet his old ass still thinks the album was a classic that took 5 years to make. His career is over. He can’t make another good solo album.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relapse_(Eminem_album)#Release_history

    The official and main release was in the USA on May 19th. All promotional materials were on May 19th. in other countries the album was released on other days. I was one of those who pre-ordered this album on Amazon back in the fall of 2008. the album was originally due out at the end of 2008.

    I consider this album the most atmospheric, one of the best and 100% classic.

    a misguided, but likely misunderstood and sad album. i'll go to bat it's all a concept record about his drug addiction.

    I know about people hating on the accent and shit but all these Dre great beats.. and damn, Deja Vu is f--king perfect. Recovery was good but we need Relapse 2.

    I listened to this for the first time in years because I saw that the 10-yr mark was approaching. It truly is as awful as its reputation suggests. and the whole "cult classic" revisionism that still lives on message boards is super misguided

    Imagine having all the music in the world at your fingertips, and voluntarily choosing to listen to...like...Medicine Ball. Or Insane. Or We Made You. Just utter garbage
