Advantages Many Strong, catchy tracks.
Disadvantages Stupid skits, excessive swearing & violent lyrics
Before I won this CD on a website competition you would never have seen me listening to any kind of rap music, let alone actually buying a CD full of it.
But now I own Marshall Mathers LP I am seriously considering buying Eminem's first album and looking further afield into other rappers' music.
Most of the tracks on the album are top-notch, OK the excessive swearing and violent lyrics can be a bit much in some songs (Kim, for example) and the short "skits" scattered through the album are pointless in my opinion, but aside from that I can't really find much more to moan about. Top two tracks on the album have to be 11. Marshall Mathers, and 3. Stan.
If I'd have known what the album was like before I won it, it would've already been in my collection. Very highly recommended, especially for newcomers to rap music - like me, a good place to start off your own collection.
