    Relapse had that crazy energy and a lot of memorable songs, unlike Kamikaze.

    I like Eminem at 3 AM, and I don't like Eminem in Kamikaze.

    Relapse but NOT by a long shot. Kamikaze is awesome replay-value-and-Energy-Packed album but I just slightly prefer the production and Marshall's mellow flow on Relapse.

    Relapse had a poor concept that was driven down even worse with poor execution. The redeeming factors are the beats and you could reach and say the flow. But the flow is only in caparison to his later work, not the previous work.

    Kamikaze had hunger and a concept that was executed for the most part very well.

    So yeah, I favour Kamikaze by quite a margin.

    If Relapse was just concept 5-6 songs EP it would be alright, LP full of serial killer vibes is too much. Thank God for Deja Vu, Beautiful and Underground, the rest is just okay at best. In my eyes, Recovery was his proper comeback, that being said - Kamikaze > Relapse. Kamikaze has that old, angry Em vibes.

    Relapse easily. If you don’t agree, your taste in music is really bad. Including refill, Kamikaze doesn’t have a single song as good as DeJa Vu, My Mom, Careful what you wish for, my darling, and probably music box. Just imagine if relapse 2 would have been using his normal voice like on careful what you wish for and my darling. It sounded like classic Eminem. And coccaine had potential to be big if he finished the track and if they had the final mix to the track it could have sounded really good.

    Here's the great thing about Eminem and why he's so popular...He switches it up all the time and has a little bit of everything for everybody. Genius. Instead of ALWAYS rapping about Weed, cars, and money on EVERY single album and song.

    Relapse is my preference. Kamikaze is better, and his most consistently good album since TES.

    Relapse was a great concept for a come-back album. Returning to music, returning to Shady, all while documenting his real life struggles with addiction... it might be his best concept imo. Execution certainly let it down of course.

    Its such an easy and unfair thing to say but Relapse could have been a great 10-12 track album

    If you choose 10-12 best tracks (Relapse+Refill), then it will probably be his best album in his career. This is much better than Kamikaze, which even cannot be called a good album.

    Lol that was a good one. He may be stretching on potentially his best album. But he made very solid points similar to mine. Take relapse’s good songs, with the refill songs on one album replacing the bad songs and that would obviously be Eminem’s best album since TES. I find tes a little overrated and for me personally I’d rank it above tes. But I understand the vast majority wouldn’t.

    The only way I can see people ranking Kamikaze above relapse including refill, is if they’re just young fans who only started listening to Eminem in the post recovery era. And the die hard stans who want to think their idol still has potential to release a classic and tries to force themselves to believe Kamikaze is some masterpiece, just because it wasn’t as bad as revival and his other couple releases. Also the white kids who drink Mountain Dew and play call of duty all day are the ones who mainly enjoy Kamikaze. Anyone who listened to Eminem in the early 2000s knows Kamikaze is garbage.

    Eminem created hi she own accent to rhyme words that didn't f--king rhyme together.

    Many people hated it. And all though it was annoying at some parts. I still think it was genius.

    Also. The fact that "careful what you wish for" & "My darling" weren't on the actual album is f--king cringe. The track list should have looked like this.

    1.) Careful what you wish for
    2.) Hello
    3.) 3 AM
    4.) My mom
    5.) Bagpipes from Baghdad
    6.) Same song and dance
    7.) Medicine Ball
    8.) Stay Wide Awake
    9.) Old time sake
    10.) Must be the Ganja
    11.) Deja Vu
    12.) Beautiful
    13.) Under ground
