    It just blows my mind that none of these tracks made the original album.

    Forever
    Hell Breaks Loose
    Buffalo Bill
    Elevator
    Taking My Ball
    Music Box
    Drop the Bomb on 'Em

    Hell Breaks loose is my personal favourite but all of these tracks could have made the album. Elevator, Music box... They are all good and better than a lot of the stuff that ended up on Relapse.

    Let's not forget the 2 bonus tracks on Relapse. "Careful What You Wish" for and "Darling" which are better than everything on Relapse aside for a couple exceptions.

    Relapse has always been one of my lowest ranked Eminem albums but if you leave out some of the songs on the original and add in the bonus tracks and Refill you have a very, very solid album.

    What do guys guys think about Refill and the bonus tracks on Relapse?

    Be Careful What You Wish For is probably one of the most underrated and one of the best songs Eminem has put out post hiatus.

    Makes you wonder how many of these great songs have been left out during the making of his albums.

    Encore had the same thing. Great bonus songs that could have replaced some of the turds on the album.

    Hell Breaks Loose is very underrated.

    Drop The Bomb On Em is very different, but great.

    CWYWF is godly. And My Darling is great too.

    Great compared to a lot of the songs on the album. Never said this was classic material. And you picked one of the worst songs as an example.

    The point is, i'd rather have "Careful What You Wish For" or "Hells Break Loose" than some shit like "We Made You" on the album lol.

    Careful What You Wish For reminds me of Encore Em. Great track. I wonder how many unreleased Relapse songs are in the vault to this day. Makes you wonder how Em sits on top of all this amazing music and doesn’t release it. Hopefully one day we can hear most of those songs.

    “We made you” is arguably a Top 10 song post hiatus. Up there with any song off REViVAL

    Elevator, Musix Box, My Darling, Careful WYWF, Hell Breaks Loose. All could have replaced some awful songs and made Relapse good imo

    Those tracks were on the album, then it leaked (in 03) and Em recorded new ones, but gave zero fs.
    Sad but true.

    DAMN.

    Careful What You Wish For, My Darling and Beautiful might be from King Mathers era. I bet at least a verse or smh from all those songs were old and he changed few things or maybe not even a thing, maybe rerecorded them and put them on the album. That might not be the case for Beautiful but those Bonus tracks were definitely old...

    I mean how is it not? Eminem comes back from a 4-5 years hiatus and literally bring us exactly what we had been missing. Celebrity bashing, funny video, and a catch beat. He literally cane in like a tour de force spitting flames.
