About this album

The album, voted the most anticipated album of fall 2009 by XXL, was announced on March 5, 2009 by Interscope Records when they announced the release date of Relapse and also revealed that a follow-up album, Relapse 2, would be released sometime in the second half of the year. In a press release, Eminem explained that he and Dr. Dre had recorded a considerable amount of music and thus, “Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff.” According to Angela Yee’s Shade 45 interview with Eminem on April 23, 2009, Relapse 2 will be a continuation of Relapse. During the interview Eminem also confirmed “It’s extremely close to being finished, it just depends on how many songs I want to put on it.” On June 25, 2009 Eminem called into Shade 45 and said he was in the studio finishing up Relapse 2 and expected a release during the fourth quarter of 2009, with Rolling Stone magazine slating the album for a November 2009 release date, but in November 2009, he stated that he would re-release Relapse, with extra songs, to hold fans over for the release of Relapse 2 in 2010.

In another Shade 45 interview, Eminem explained that the album was more “emotionally driven” than the first Relapse record, which was, as he explains ” rap records”.

When premiering the debut single, Eminem also let listeners know that there weren’t any skits on the album, so the album would contain more songs than his previous studio albums.

    MMLP2 > Relapse > Recovery > Encore

    Obviously its highlight's don't measure up to Relapse's but Recovery is considerably less slipshod as a whole. Both albums are on more or less on the same level - weak 7/10s.

    Some of Eminem's best rapping ever, coupled with a collection of of his most horrendous beats and choruses ever.

    Eminem's worst album is Encore. Recovery was decent, not the greatest though.

    What's wrong with you IMBECILES? This is really good! [4]

    It's an okay album, but I don't get all the hype about it. It has two or three really good tracks, but it seems like Eminem can no longer deliver the strong, fast-paced flow and heavy lyrics from his past.

    What's wrong wih you people? This is really good! [3] "So I pick myself off the ground and fuckin swam 'fore I drowned / Hit my bottom so hard I bounced twice suffice this time around / It's different them last two albums didn't count / Encore I was on drugs, Relapse I was flushing em out / I've come to make it up to you no more fucking around / I've got something to prove to fans cause I feel like I've let em down / So please accept my apology I finally feel like I'm back to normal / I feel like me again, let me formally reintroduce myself to you for those of you who don't know / The new me's back to the old me and homie I don't show no / Signs of slowin up, pullin up, blowin up, all over / My life is no longer a movie but the show ain't over homos"
