    Michael Myers The Boogeyman Is Coming

    Sep 1, 2018
    I remember w revival there were like 20 threads from people w reviews lol.

    Since we got no eminem section and 20 threads in music section would be cringe,
    Post your reviews in here (best to spoiler it too).

    Ofc @M Solo needs to have an OFFICIAL thread.

    I'm gonna do a tbt later today (reserved)

    @Koolo thoughts?

    The Ringer
    So this is basically the counterpart of Walk On Water. On WoW he was kinda complaining about how people were never satisfied, here he is pissed at it. Chloraseptic remix was a preview of that. A good mix of dissing mumble rap (which is kinda cringe but okay), clever wordplay, great flows, nice voice, self awareness and honesty and some pretty funny parts this is a great opener. Also these few lines @ trump were a million times better than HAHA THE CANARY WITH A TWEET!!! Where Walk Of Water was a good opener/single that promised us a great album that fell off after the second song, this time he sorta gave us what he promised. 9/10

    Greatest
    Love the verses, especially the fact that he's layering his voice. The hook is really annoying lol. Again good content and lines, but I wish he calmed the f--- down a little, why so fast on some parts? It isn't as annoying as it usually is because the lyrics are fine, but yeah. 8/10

    Lucky You
    Such a great song. Joyner Lucas kills his verse. Production is so fire. Eminems verse is so honest and self aware I love it. The intro of his verse is one of my favorite parts of this album... but the fast part, WHY? 9/10

    Normal
    I expressed my feelings about Eminem relationship songs on Revival.. I hate them. But Normal is so much better than Tragic Endings, 25 to Life and others like it. This sounds better at least. Dope production and his voice/flow is fine. Still kinda not needed on this album though. 7/10

    Stepping Stone
    What can I say? This sounds like 2002. Voice, beat, flow, content, everything is perfect. Just wish that s-----y hook wasn't on this, sounds kinda unfinished lol. 10/10

    Not Alike
    Yeah I can't say I like this very much. Love Eminem going off @ some people but the fast rapping is very annoying here. The little Migos part was funny and kinda cringe at the same time. 6.5/10

    Kamikaze
    A little corny. Very dope beat switch though. I T-BAGGED THE MICROPHONE CUZ I GO NUTS ON IT lmfao. But its a funny song thats better than some of his other attempts the last decade I guess. 6/10

    Fall
    After years of coming at the HATERZ he finally names people. And not just pop stars and random youtube reviewers. About time. He sounds so good on this again. Real highlight. 9/10

    Nice Guy
    The womans intro is annoying and the s--- MY d-ck stuff is so f---ing corny. She does rap/sing good on the song though. But no, this song is a little annoying to me overall. 5/10

    Good Guy
    Love this song. I know its kinda part 2 of Nice Guy but this sounds soo much better. Love his flow, and Jessie absolutely kills it. This is what I want from female collabs. 8.5/10

    Venom (PHENOMENAL Pt 2)
    This is a better version of Phenomenal to me. Lyrics are a lot better but I dunno its kinda... boring maybe? It doesn't seem as personal as the other songs on this album. which is a shame. It's kinda just there. 6.5/10

    AVERAGE: 7.6

    Few things I could have said about almost every song..

    - He sounds so hungry again
    - Vocal layering
    - fast rapping isn't as annoying here as it has been on songs where he rapped fast but didn't say s---

    I can actually listen to this without skipping a track, even if I don't really like 2 or 3 songs. He finally gave us a rap album without poppy stuff, not that many cringe worthy lines and actually going at people and not invisible haters.

    This is the best we can expect from him at this point and I'm glad we got this album. I'm almost sure this will have much more replay value as well.

    very, very solid effort for 2018 Eminem.

    It’s above average for 2018 Eminem but still nothing special. Ok yeah stepping stone was cool to hear the first time but would I continue to play it? Nah.

    I dunno we’re u guys are from but I’d be embarrassed to be driving round my estate bumping kamikaze and nice guy.

    I can just listen and appreciate this for what it is. As it was a surprise release there was no over hyped build up to be let down. For the first time in forever, this was honest and I can sense the hunger. Appreciate that it's not for everyone but I'd be pleased personally if this was his last release!

    A 9. Two songs on that album that don’t work. Rest is a really good body of work.

    8/10

    But I wish I could give this entire thing a 10.
    He went this surprise album route.
    He adapted successfully to the modern sound.
    Sounded hungry again and corrected almost all the issues he had since years.
    Even those love songs were creative as f--- even tho they weren't for me exactly.
    Length was perfect.

    Em really was a man with a mission here and he actually focused on creating a cohesive body of work here.

    I wish Normal, Nice Guy and Good Guy werent here because this would've been a 9 otherwise.

    strong 6 to light 7.. I appreciate that he finally released an album with relevant content and production that isn't horrendous. but it's pretty flawed, the content of the song 'normal' is terrible although it's sonically not bad, 'good guy' is the trashiest song by far, and there are some pretty bad musical decisions.

    by that I mean a collection of seemingly minor things, some unneeded voice layering, some awkward delivery switchups and some cringeworthy singing, these little 'mistakes' are frequent and it takes a lot away from this.

    Like I’ve said previously, this album is litered with all the things we hate about modern Em. People are giving it a pass because he name drops a few rappers and has a “couple” good beats. There are good verses and even songs on this but also LOTS of garbage. 5/10 since it’s half good and half s---.
