God help me but im a huge Eminem fan and have been listening to his new album a ton since it dropped. For the sake of clarity, im a typical middle class white kid who can thank Eminem for being my gateway into hip hop, so I hold a soft spot for him and go back to binge-listen to his stuff every year or so (or when new stuff comes out).

Some thoughts since I've probably listened to the album 10 times at this point: I've done the same for every Eminem album since Relapse, and this has been my personal favourite experience out of all of the albums since then.

Is it the BEST album out of all of those in the last decade? No idea, but I think an argument can be made that this album has his best flows since Relapse, his best production since Eminem Show, and a great mix of oldschool goofy Em shit with his late career lyrical miracle shit, some tremendous schemes & structure, some good storytelling vibes, some great features, and just overall fun.

There are 17 real tracks on the album, and I think 5 of them are bad/skippable/not for me. 12 of them though, I've been listening to several times per day since release, and im loving them. Here is my personal tierlist of the tracks:

Great: You Gon Learn, Darkness, Yah Yah, Lock it Up, I Will

Good: Premonition, Unaccommodating, Those Kinda Nights, Godzilla, Leaving Heaven, Stepdad, No Regrets

Meh: In Too Deep, Farewell

Bad: Never Love Again, Marsh, Little Engine

A few notes on those:

* I think at this stage in his career Em is best when he's contained to 1-2 verses alongside someone else who is equally as good or someone who provides a killer hook. All of the songs I love have incredible features from Royce, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Paak, Joell, Crooked. Eminem seems to be at his best when he has someone else incredibly talented to play off of.

* Those Kinda Nights is so fun and goofy. It's not a GREAT track, but I can't stop listening to it. It over anything else gives me the silly old school Em vibes that I fell in love with back in the day.

* Stepdad has a terrible hook, but the storytelling is great and the flow might be the best on the album and one of his best flows in the last decade. I absolutely love this track. And god help me but I end the song by singing along with the stupid ass hook every time. It's so bad that it's almost ironically great.

Andy Gill was one of the most unique guitarists of the past 50 years. The brilliance of his tension filled broken riffs never fell on deaf ears and never could you watch someone having so much fun on stage with their shirt tucked in. RIP to another great.

Beale street lineup is decent enough for the trip.

Also new tame impala record out; Kevin parker is a visionary
