Eminem's Recovery Mini-Review

Does Eminem's flow cease to amaze? Do tongue-twisting, multi-syllabic, out of this planet lyrics get boring? Eminem's latest album Recovery answers those questions with a resounding no. If Em has ever fallen off during his career, it was because of production and not lyrics (on this joint he rhymes "Roethlisberger" with "office worker". Recovery, as a matter of fact, has a committee of producers that include Dr. Dre, Just Blaze, Denaun Porter, Havoc, and others rightfully giving Em a breather from the beat reigns. Cold Wind Blows” is vintage Mr. Mathers and “Almost Famous” is so galvanizing every bar sounds like electric vomit. This album sounds like Em circa 2000. A must cop.
