EMINEM... Should I get a copy!?

I will not heed the mainstream and get an Eminem album... I will not heed the mainstream and get an Eminem album...

Boy am I tempted... The Eminem Show is on sale due to the Grammies event...

I saw 8 mile... and I appreciate Eminem's production quality and admire his mad rhyming skills.... but I ... must .... not.... give ... into temptation....

Someone

If you really want it, download the music. He really doesnt deserve the money. I'm kinda biased though, I think he's walking scum. I know what you mean about respecting his talent, cause he is talented. I still think he's a putz though.

I personally would rather listen to Jurassic 5 any day of the week...

I saw 8 mile and was all about listening to his stuff for about a week or so. I got tired of it really fast and I'm glad I downloaded for free and didn't waste any money on buyin a cd.

Very true. I was really excited with the lead single, What's Golden. Great song. The album is pretty inconsistent compared to Quality Control though.

The song with Nelly Furtado is ok too.

Dont heed the mainstream and get it if you want it mofo. I have it, I didn't purchase it, I burnt it for free off a friend. If I had heard it first and was unable to copy it, I would have bought it. I really like it, but I'm biased.
There are some fantastic tracks off it that will never see the light of day as single releases and not because he is 'misunderstood' or any of that garbage, but because people love to hate him. But I wont rave on about that now.
Download My Dad's Gone Crazy, Paul Rosenberg and perhaps White America. I'm not sure how you'd take that one though, some people would misinterpret it I guess. I dunno, I dont want to make excuses for him, people are entitled to their opinions.
Overall, I think its a good album.

I like Eminem, but I have yet to buy one of his albums. CD's are so damn expensive...it takes a lot to get me to buy one these days, it seems. I've been considering getting one of his though.

Yeah, I only buy records from people that deserve my money, and I think I'm a pretty good judge of character because I read People magazine. This one time I stole a crate of Microsoft products and didn't feel bad about it at all. Bill Gates is rich as hell, and I doubt he works very hard so he really doesn't deserve money anyway. CHEERS GANG!

I have a burnt copy of 8 Mile soundtrack (trust me, Lose Yourself is the ONLY good song on there -- though, Lose Yourself is a very good song, but the rest really suck), and a real (but free! gotta love getting defective CDs that work just fine) copy of the Marshall Mathers LP. I actually like the Marshall Mathers LP quite a bit -- it's much better in terms of overall quality than the 8 Mile soundtrack.

I still do not like Eminem as a peson, but I like his music.

I"ve never read People, I get all my info from Tiger Beat, Seventeen, and The Weekly World News! hehehe

Good point though, I do agree. You shouldnt download entire albums without buying it, that's pretty dishonest.

im sooooOOOOOOO tired of eminem complaining about how hes misunderstood and all his other bullshit. hes a complete tool that has talents that im not interested in whatsoever.

i dont care if its part of his alter-ego when he sings about killing his mom and his wife, thats messed up. hes a dickhead that deserves nothing but the worst.
