Chaos and lots of things happening around the music world. Now time for my thoughts.
GUESS WHO'S BACK, BACK AGAIN
It all came quickly...first the single, then it leaked...the result...now a candidate for best album of the year despite what the haters (and indie pitchfork midgets) think. Eminem
is back in full colors with Recovery
. Gone all the filler songs that pulled Encore
down and the accents that ruined Relapse
...he even acknowledges it. Also are the lack of other rappers as it's just appearances from P!nk
, Lil Wayne
. His raps, come out blaring in full force, hardcore. The songs lean more towards pop rap
, but his vocals come out as hardcore hip-hop
. Some of the highlights include 25 to Life
, a track that starts out as if it was another hate track to his ex-wife Kim...but in the end, it's a metaphor and the Kim really was...hip-hop.
Also a great use of sample on No Love (feat. Lil Wayne)
as What Is Love
is sampled...yes...the Roxbury song...and it's sampled good. …
