"Debut = masterpiece"
5 stars"

Whether you love him or hate him, you cannot deny Eminem has made his mark on the music industry. The Slim Shady LP is the beginnings of that mark and, while not as highly polished as more recent albums, provides listeners with a more gritty version of Eminem. The Slim Shady LP provides a look (if a little blown out of proportion) at the life of Eminem, from his childhood to his love for his daughter Hailie. If you haven't heard this album and you are an Eminem fan, you need to buy this immediately.


Personnel includes: Eminem, Kristie Abete Swift, Dina Rae (vocals); Richard "Segal" Huredia (spoken vocals); Jeff Bass (various instruments); Mel-Man, DJ Head, Denine Porter (drum programming); Paul "Bunyan" Rosenberg, Zoe Winkler, Marky Bass, Aristotle, Royce Da 5'9".

Producers include: Dr. Dre, M. Mathers, Marky Bass, Jeff Bass, Mel Man.

Engineers include: Blumpy, Aaron Lepley, Alan Mason.

THE SLIM SHADY LP won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. "My Name Is" won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.

You'll need a well-developed sense of humor to fully appreciate the debut of Eminem a.k.a. Slim Shady. Produced by hip-hop super-producer Dr. Dre and released on Dre's Aftermath Records, the album features an infectious lead single, "My Name Is," a winning mixture of alternative rock and rap. One listen will have you hooked on the chorus, but future plays will reveal the lyrical gymnastics that Eminem kicks out so effortlessly.

Obsessed with fantasies of sex, violence, drugs and a general depraved indifference to life itself, Eminem's alter ego Slim Shady is constantly involved in a battle of good vs. evil leavened by a high degree of irony. You'll need a few listens to absorb everything that Eminem is about lyrically. SLIM SHADY might offend the faint-hearted, but that's probably Eminem's intention.

What the critics say...

Rolling Stone (4/1/99, pp.93-94) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) "...Eminem earns his buzz as a bona fide rap star one tasteless insult at a time, battling the world with a mouthful of adjectives and a boxful of laxatives."
Spin (5/99, p.148) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Eminem [aka Marshall Mathers] is humorous enough to be an honorary Beastie goy, and his scenarios are so far-fetched the songs almost never sound as ugly as they actually are. Mathers's hard-knock raps translate hip-hop for folks with Wu-Tang decoder rings, articulating suburban anger and violent apathy through the lens of white kids' experience..."
Q (1/00, p.84) - Included in Q Magazine's "50 Best Albums of 1999."
Mixmag (5/99, p.146) - 5 out of 5 - "...Perversion, paranoia and slapstick humour meet in Eminem's gob and get spat out 19 to the dozen....makes great voyeuristic entertainment..."
Muzik (1/00, p.69) - Ranked #8 in Muzik's "Albums Of The Year '99"
Muzik (5/99, p.82) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...It's dazzlingly funny and gloriously offensive..."
CMJ (2/8/99, p.30) - "...Pairing Redman's gutter humor and metaphorical dexterity with Canibus' raging themes, the Detroit native has matched the high expectations surrounding his brilliant new album..."
The Source (2/00, p.95) - Included in The Source's "Top 10 Albums of the Year [1999]."
Melody Maker (5/1/99, p.36) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...By far the most distressing thing about THE SLIM SHADY LP is how seductive it is - largely due to Dr Dre's production work, it captivates and thrills, and this is an unavoidably amazing body of work..."
