    Post-Encore, his 2nd best album. Some classic tracks on the album just let down with the new stop and start flow, corny punchlines and yelling.
    Best tracks: Spacebound, Cinderella Man, Love The Way You Are, You're Never Over, Talkin 2 Myself.

    1. Relapse - classic
    2. Recovery - good
    3. MMLP2 - okay
    4. Revival - okay
    5. Kamikaze - only gave 3 full listens ever.

    I consider this album his proper comeback. f--k Relapse (except of few songs). This album put Em back into the spotlight. As horrible as it may sound today, it was great back in 2010. It was something different. Still listen to some of songs from time to time (blame shuffle).

    Solid 7.5/10 from me.

    Revival had the potential to be his 2nd Recovery, but well... Shit happened.

    Recovery was a massive letdown for me although there's still a fair few joints I enjoy... Probably an unpopular opinion here, but I prefer Encore over Recovery lol.

    Recovery is a great album. Been listening to it in the car on repeat lately. Listening to it again after a while made me realize there isn't nearly as much of those flaws everyone keeps associating with it. Its not pop, the punchlines are not prevalant, the yelling is not that often.

    I love the album. It might even be his best, honestly. (Not counting relapse due to it being out of contest masterpiece)

    And Won't Back Down is a banger.

    Encore was better for real, Never Enough, Like Toy Soldiers, Spend Some Time (Em's best hook), Yellow Brick Road (classic), We As Americans, Encore with Dre and Fofty, Love You More, shit. Album packed with some dope songs.

    Recovery has not aged hat great. Production is a bit generic. But really enjoyed it back in 2010.

    But still a good album his best since 2002. Space Bound & Going Through Changes both great.
