“Revival” Album Review

Many people call Marshall Mathers “The Greatest of All Time” but I believe Hip-Hop doesn’t really have one single G.O.A.T. However, most Rap fans can probably agree that Eminem’s one of them.

 

I was really excited about hearing Revival, and much like the new Star Wars movie, I have mixed feelings.

 

“I’ve been working on it for over a year. You know how it is — you make songs, and as you make the new ones, the old ones get old and you throw them out,” Eminem said. “The album is called Revival. It’s a reflection of where I’m at right now, but also I feel like what I tried to do was diversify. I’ve tried to make a little something for everyone.”

 

Mathers knew what he was doing by giving fans a mixed bag of 19 tracks. Ranging from classic Em to something that sounds like Migos penned it (“Chloraseptic”). On the whole, I was left feeling unsatisfied. The album has some pretty good tracks but I don’t see any of these records becoming “classics”. Every time Eminem drops a project at least a couple of the songs end up being timeless jams. I don’t see that in Revival.

 

The majority of the album had a punk rock tone. I’m not a fan of when Yelawolf does that and I’m definitely not a fan of when Eminem tries. By being so talented, Marshall’s permanently set the bar high for fans’ expectations. After a 4-year break since his last project, Hip-Hop heads were hoping for something better than what they got. There’s nothing really wrong with Revival, but I feel like Em could’ve done better.

 

Standout tracks include “River”, “Like Home”, “Nowhere Fast”, “Offended”, “Castle”, and “Arose”.

Listen to Revival below and let me know what you think.

Eminem: New Single & Tracklist

As December 15th draws near, fans are becoming increasingly excited about the upcoming Eminem project, Revival.

 

After Em’s notorious performance at the BET Hip-Hop Awards and the release of his new single,”Walk On Water”, nobody really knows what to expect from the lyrical miracle. Today, the album became available for pre-order which means we now have the tracklist. The LP will contain 19 songs in total and feature guest appearances from Phresher, Ed Sheeran, Pink, Skylar Grey, Kehlani, Alicia Keys, X Ambassadors, and Beyonce (as heard in “Walk On Water).

 

Eminem also released a new single off the album today, titled “Untouchable”. Much like his BET Awards performance, this track is overflowing with social commentary and political statements. Judging by the American flag on the album cover, that will probably be a recurring theme in Revival.

 

Check out “Untouchable” below and, if you haven’t already seen it, watch the video from the recent BET Hip-Hop Awards.

#TBT: “Just Lose It” (by Eminem)

In honor of Slim Shady’s upcoming album, Revival, I thought I’d dedicate this Throwback Thursday to him. Revival is widely anticipated to come out tomorrow.

 

Shady Record’s Mr. Porter stated that the project would arrive in the 4th quarter of 2017. Also, Interscope’s print ad campaign is scheduled to expire tomorrow. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, Eminem is scheduled to be the musical guest this weekend on SNL… Maybe it’s just a coincidence.

 

I’m not positive the album will drop tomorrow but I sure hope it does.
