"Eminem rocks"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is the second album of Slim Shady's that I now own and I don't think it will be the last. I just think he is the best thing that has ever happened to rap music and I can't get enough of his lyrics. This album has a couple of my all time favorite songs and a lot more really good tracks so you should give it a try.

"The Greatest Hit's of Curtain Call"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great Value for money. Came early didn't even have to wait long at all for delivery. My favorite songs are; The way I Am, My Name Is, Stan Ft Dido, Lose Yourself, Sing For The Moment Without Me Like Toy Soldiers, The Real Slim Shady, Mockingbird, Guilty Conscience Ft Dr. Dre, Cleaning Out My Closet, Just Lose it & When I'm Gone. Very trust worthy sellers. I would highly recommend buying form Mighty Ape.

Description

It's hard to believe, given his gargantuan impact on popular culture, that Eminem had only released four full-length albums by 2004. That year's ENCORE showed the rapper's artistic vitality fading just a bit, but 2005's CURTAIN CALL, an overdue greatest-hits collection, helps remind audiences that Eminem produced a stunning string of singles in a short span of time. Naturally, CURTAIN CALL eschews the artist's most controversial material ("'97 Bonnie and Clyde," for example, from THE SLIM SHADY LP), focusing instead on his highest charters, like 8 MILE's "Lose Yourself" and introspective confessionals like "Cleanin' Out My Closet" (a rant against his mother) and "Mockingbird" (a tribute to his daughter).

But even at his most sentimental and dramatic, Eminem displays a level of artistry that surpasses nearly anyone in hip-hop, if not pop music in general. Satirical, vicious, funny, and energizing, Eminem's material is never less than absorbing. CURTAIN CALL is packed wall-to-wall with winners (except maybe "Sing For the Moment," which reworks Aerosmith's "Dream On" in tiresome fashion), and at its most brilliant (like the self-reflexive romps "The Real Slim Shady" and "Stan") it's as era-defining as anything by N.W.A, Public Enemy, or even Bob Dylan. Though his individual albums are all pretty essential, CURTAIN CALL provides a valuable overview of an artist whose skills are unassailable, and whose role as a social gadfly remains as complex as ever.

What the critics say...

Entertainment Weekly (p.81) - "This hits package captures the half-decade moment when the tortured Detroit MC ruled the zeitgeist with whip-smart gross-out humor and jolting family confessions." -- Grade: A-
Uncut (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "CURTAIN CALL sizzles with profane pop genius..."
