Editorial Review

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up? On Eminem's sophomore album, he can't decide who he wants to be: the deranged pseudo-psycho of the Slim Shady LP, or a nice guy who just likes to rhyme about slicing and dicing his girlfriend ("Kim"). Of course, according to Eminem, he's just kidding. He refuses to take responsibility for the misogynistic, homophobic bile he spews, whining that he's the victim of people who don't get his unique sense of humor. It's good old America's fault if the kids aren't alright (Eminem blames bad parenting), and he's just capitalizing on Uncle Sam's dark side. On the Marshall Mathers LP, he's ambivalent about his fame, angry at his life, pissed off that people take him seriously, and fightin' mad at boy bands--and a lot of other white people. But the blue-eyed brat is acutely aware of his status as rap's resident alien: he has the most offensive mouth running, but never uses the "N" word. He gives lyrical love to tragic (black) legends like Tupac and Biggie while dissing white rappers hard. Even sitting duck Puffy gets the kid-gloves treatment. Of course, Eminem is an interesting, witty rapper, and there's some nice production on this CD, courtesy of Dr. Dre and others. But the hatred in Eminem's rhymes makes the album rotten at its core. And his protests that Slim Shady is just a persona become less convincing with each arrest. Then again, Eminem's got it hard: he's rich, famous, white, and male. --Lizz Mendez Berry ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars May I Have Your Attention . . . . . .
Eminem's form of expression mixed with humor and complete vulgarity has always fascinated me in an odd way. Maybe it's because he's always testing and then breaking the boundaries of music. On "The Marshall Mathers LP," Eminem goes against the grain, but this time struggles with many different issues, including his new-found fame, the current wave of garbage-pop music, and unresolved questions from his past.

Eminem spits in the music industry's collective face with his song "The Real Slim Shady," which disses well-known music figures like Christina Aguilera, 'NSync, and Will Smith and includes a great sing-along chorus. Continuing in the same vein is the tongue-in-cheek "Marshall Mathers," which again snarls at boy bands while Eminem ponders why little kids want to be like him. His brutally honest "Drug Ballad" showcases his once back-and-forth relationship with drugs and their brutal effects. Two of the biggest standouts on the album are "Stan" and "Kim." "Stan" illustrates the issue of fan-obsession and its extremes. The song soars with backing vocals by Dido, making it even more captivating. "Kim" is oddly gripping and emotionally exhausting--its haunting melody and lyrics paint a picture of the darker side of a relationship gone too far. Eminem wildly wavers between hate, love, dispair, and hope before ending the song with the utmost tragedy. Eminem's writing skills are amazing--his ability to tell stories conjure up disturbing mental images as he journeys to the dark side of life. Definitely not for the easily offended, Eminem will make you laugh, think, and hit the "repeat" button on your CD player. This album is worth buying and listening.

5-0 out of 5 stars The only White Rap worth Hearing
I never listened to rap before Eminem came out. I find his rhythms and rhyme scheme to be fascinating. I believe in total freedom of speech and if you don't like the lyrics, don't listen.

...OOL LYRICS TO SONGS, LISTEN TO "IM BACK". MARSHALL MATHERS IS A COOL SONG TOO. HOPE YOU ENJOY THE CDg there money on a cd with innoproperite lyrics, and making him that much more rich. He doesn't care about you. He will do whatever it takes to make money. He has led so many people down the wrong path in life. With his money he is probably going to spend it on drugs, beer, and other stupid stuff. Why wouyld you buy something that has lyrics that talk about sex, voilence, drugs, and more. Well hope you don't buy his cd. Peace out.lad-about drugs of course

Amityville-em and his pals d-12 rappin it oy here

Kim-This one is truly a very strange song this is about eminem trying to kill his wife Kim and his hate for her.

Criminal-crazy last som stands out alot

I like this album just give it a chance to sink in and you will like it too forget about how people diss him and say hes not talented. It's goodan awesome beat.

The Real Slim Shady: Ahh, the 'friendly" radio song. It's a good single, but the happy-beat doesn't fit in anywhere on this album.

Remember Me: Another "EM going off track." It's a bit slower than usual, but yet another song that makes this a great CD.

Im Back: Em is mad. He thinks that you forgot about him. Overall, a good-to-fair tune.

Marshall Mathers: The personal song. Em talks about his mom, and Kim. It's a great slow song. "Slow?" Trust me, it works., beautifully.

Drug Ballad: Em's "love song." He mixes hip-hop choruses into it, and this is this time's "Cum On Everybody."

Amityville: I don't particularly care for this song, but it's good enough to not skip.

Bitch Please Part II: Guests galore. It hits hard and fast, with the most straight-rap vibe in this whole album.

Kim: A funny-in-a-weird-way song. His "Na-na-na-na-na"s in the beginning is priceless, and so are the lyrics.

Under The Influence: Whoa. Em starts out talking to Halley-Jade, and then...........Whoa.

Criminal: The perfect closer. A potential single, you'll love it.

As for the skits, Public Service Annoucement 2000 is basically a continuation of the first album's intro, Steve Berman is one where he pokes fun at a record-exec, and Ken Kaniff............let's just say, he got ICP back.

Em is angry at SOMETHING. You can hear it in his voice. He yells, kicks, screams, and, ultimately, gets his message across. And in the process, he makes one of the finest rap albums ever made.

5-0 out of 5 stars "floydianfan" is un-educated on real rap.
This album is great. I'm white, but it doesn't make me a "whigger" to listen to this bumpin' cd. Some people just take music too literal [serious] and actually DO what these rappers joke about. Some people are too stupid to understand what is right, and what is wrong. Em' is a comedian no matter how much he denies it. This album is his best although twisted and not for the easily-offended. It's NOT a freestlye session. And many people can rap "better" but not as "sinister" as Eminem and Slim Shady[his sick side]. So if you take things too seriously, or don't like twisted rap, don't buy it. Otherwise 5 outta' 5! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Yes, she did. Even if the title track's chorus is a blatant rip-off of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet, "Woman in Love," it's still darn catchy--much more than anything from 1999's ...Baby One More Time (save the album's fab title tune, of course). With the rest of the 12 songs here, the teen queen pretty much delivers a remake of her last album. Songs like "What U See (Is What U Get)" and "Stronger" show Swedish songwriter-producer Max Martin in his element, churning out another and yet another slick smash with staccato synth beats and heavily overproduced melodies. But even at his strongest points, he can't bury Britney's voice far enough below the virtual guitars--and it's obvious this girl ain't no Celine. Except for the horrendous ballads, however, that doesn't make a stitch of a difference. The pop songs have all the qualities of memorable tunes--the choruses are clear and catchy, the beats are bouncy enough to make you shake your bonbon, and the singer is about as randy for love as Austin Powers is for a shag. Edit out the low-water mark--when Britney mutilates the Rolling Stones' misogynist anthem, "Satisfaction," by oversexualizing it with inserted "uh"s ("I can't get no, uh, satisfaction")--and you've got a hit-packed album that's as guilty a pleasure as reruns of Beverly Hills 90210. --Heidi Sherman ...

This CD is possibly one of the worst CDs EVER. At least I can't say It's Britney that's making it awful, because she doesen't write (not surprising, eh?) her own songs. DO NOT BUY THIS CD!

Listen to someone like Fefe Dobson, No Doubt or Vitamin C. Much higher quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most recognizable CDs of the modern music era
Britney Spears. I think anybody who is somebody knows who this young girl is. The global phenomenom that is Miss Spears boomed onto the scene in 1998 when her deliciously tarty "...Baby One More Time" hit the charts and made its way into history as a No. 1 single, Grammy nominee and one of the most recognizable songs in music history. Then came Britney's second Jive release, the record-breaking, just-as-delicious Oops!...I Did It Again, in which this girl delivered another smash Grammy-nodded album. Though her voice may not be as powerful as rival Christina Aguilera's there's no doubt La Brit has talent - nobody complained about her trademark throatiness when she first hit MTV! Don't dislike her just because she's become a huge superstar. This disc is in what many consider the perfect pop record; every track on this CD is a possible hit in my opinion. Britney Spears most certainly did do it again! This definitely should've won a Grammy for Album of the Year, for it was certainly the most talked-about CD of the year - for good reason, Britney rocks. Buy this disc!

Editorial Review

Despite millions of album sales, 'N Sync are an obvious No. 2 to label mates the Backstreet Boys. Fittingly, they try harder--too hard, in fact--through most of their second non-Christmas disc, No Strings Attached. The quintet and Strings' dozen-plus producers fill these 47 minutes with bland ballads by Diane Warren and Richard Marx, mildly funky workouts like a cover of Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid" and the muddled "Space Cowboy," and gimmicks such as "Digital Get Down" that hardly lend credence to whatever career-longevity claims they might want to lodge. This is a guaranteed smash, but judged on the merits of its weak material and less than compelling vocal performances, No Strings Attached should be long forgotten by the time the Backstreeters' next CD arrives. --Rickey Wright ...

5-0 out of 5 stars one awesome album
I love this album. I enjoyed every track. Here's a review of all of them.

1. Bye Bye Bye- This was the 1st single, the song that made me be interested in this talented boy band. This is a catchy tune that anyone could like. (11/10)

2. It's Gonna be Me- The 2nd single. THis song wasn't as good as bye bye bye, but certainly a great song. it's one of my favorites. (10/10)

3. Space Cowboys- It's got a good beat, and i like the chorus, but it was out of date after the year 2000 was over. (9.9/10)

4. Just Got Paid- i love this song. It has a groovy beat and fabulous lyrics. A definate favorite. (10.5/10)

5. It Makes Me Ill- Great beat, good lyrics, and an all together cool song (10/10)

6. This I Promise You- This is a sweet ballad, the best ballad on there in my opinion. i like the spanish version too. :)(10/10)

7. No Strings Attached- This is an ok songs. I was co-written by JC, which is a little different because people don't think that boybands write their own songs. (9/10)

8. Digital Get Down- Another one co-written by JC. This song is one of the best in the album. some people are opposed to the lyrics, but i'm not one of them. ;)(11/10)

9. Bringin' Da Noise- This is my least favorite song on the album, but no song on here is bad, it's written about a basketball game for goodness sakes! it's also co-written by JC.(7/10)

10. That's When I'll Stop Loving You- another ballad. this is the second best ballad. It a pretty good song. (9.9/10)

11. I'll Be Good for You- This one is co-written by Justin. It's supposed to be "old-school." It sounds ok. (8/10)

12. It thought She new- THis is a beautiful a capella. The lyrics are very sad and i cried the first time i heard it. (10/10)

i would give this album a 10/10 rating. I love it!!


3-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing...
I have a diverse taste in music. Hanson, Dave Matthews Band, Korn, Counting Crows...and I also like N Sync. With their first album came out, I was impressed with their harmonies and pure pop sound. Sure, they didn't write any of the songs or produce anything, but that was expected. We've heard THAT arguement before. And after hearing "bye bye bye" on the radio, I was sure NSA was going to live up to it's expectations. Boy, was I ever wrong. I bought the album on the first day it came out, as most fans did. As many have said before me, "Didgidal Getdown" is NOT who N Sync is supposed to be...we had an image of nice, clean cut boys who sang sappy love ballads. And than JC goes and writes THAT. Of course, the whole album isn't horrible. "It's Gonna Be Me" is catchy, and after being forced to listen to "Space Cowboy" for an hour straight, it kinda grew on me. "This I promise You" is a typical, but nice love song. "No Strings Attached" is one of the albums biggest hits with me and also "I thought she knew" is a beautiful a capella song, demonstrating N Sync's ability. Overall though, I was dissapointed. "Bring in the noise" is just stupid, and "Just got paid" isn't all that great. There just isn't any depth in the lyrics at all. Not to mention all we hear is JC and Justin. Joey and Chris get a couple lines while we don't hear Lance AT ALL. Never. I swear he doesn't even get to sing in the harmonies sometimes. And I think he has an absolutely *beautiful* voice. WE WANT LANCE TO SING.

1-0 out of 5 stars Thank God the Boy Band Craze is Over
Man, oh man - thank god this craze is over. They vaulted to the top of the charts a few years ago, thanks to the dedicated teenie fans, but alas, no longer are they so respected, except by people who Never Got Over It. Yet they still linger beneath the surface, waiting to rise again. We have four who never used this horrid band as a catalyst to start something else, and then you have this yellow-haired clown invading the media worse than anthrax. And yet, you know that this single clown is going to keep reminding us that, yes Virginia, there were boy bands.

As for the cd, please do yourself a favor and don't buy this crap. If you want real music, go to the alternative tentacles website and purchase an old Dead Kennedys album. Buy a NOFX cd. Or, for crying out loud, go get a Beatles cd or an Enrico Caruso! Support anybody but these manufactured bimbos! Support REAL musicians!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for a "clean" version
I have heard both the unedited and edited versions of this CD, and the unedited version is much better. For example, there are two more songs, and track #7 is much improved. The editing on this CD at least keeps the issue interesting, although in some instances you can still hear the word... Anyway, Kid Rock is a truly talented performer. In "Only God Knows Why", he imitates an 80's metal ballad while sounding like Cher (thanks to the use of vocoders). In "Welcome 2 The Party" (especially the unedited version), he truly captures the spirit of a party. And the list goes on... Rock also is a capable lyricist, although some of his metaphors are rather forgetabble. One shocking fact: The only song without a single edited word is track #9, "Somebody's Gotta Feel This" (although "Bawitdaba" and "I Got One For Ya" come close. Moral: the unedited version is NOT for children.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable CD
I really like this CD. Here's why: It's the kind of CD you can pop in the CD player just for fun and listen to(and enjoy!) each and every song. Not a boring moment! Sure, they can't all be as popular as "Cowboy", "Bawitdaba", or "Only God Knows Why", but each song is good in its own way. I am gonna rate the CD song by song.

Bawitdaba- A great opener! Fat paced, in your face, smash mouth Metal from the start! Great stuff!

Cowboy- His most popular song is one of his best! Cool beginning with the robot voice and it only gets better from there! I like Kid's lyrics.

Devil without a Cause- The title track is one of the longest, but it never gets boring! Listen to the whole thing and you'll be treated to Joe C's hilarious back up vocals!

I am the Bullgod- My favorite track! Opens hard with a gnarly guitar sound and gets better from there! I'm surprised people don't like this as much as Cowboy or Bawitdaba.

Roving Gangster- It has good raps and a cool Chorus. I can just picture Kid Rock rollin' thru town in his stylin' ride.

Wasting time- One of the most underrated songs. It's a very good listen, I think, and one of the very best songs he has ever done!

Welcome 2 The Party- Excellent! Starts off a bit slow but you'll get over it.......hmm, seems like a transformation in rapping style right in the middle of the song. Kid starts off with somewhat playful and soft lyrics but after the second Chorus he goes mad!

I got one for ya- This is one groovy song! I love the last 30 seconds. I always laugh!

Somebody's gotta feel this- I feel it! Great song!

Fist of Rage- Excellent song with a cool chorus!

Only God knows why- This is a beutiful song, even if he if he did have a little help(He was singin' into a vo-coder most of the song)it is a work of art. He lets people know that he is grateful of the things he does have and that he still believes in God.

Where u at Rock?- Good song, but out of place. I would have put this second to last and ended the album with Only God Knows Why.....anyway, it's cool!

I am The Bullgod(Remix)- Funky sounding version of Bullgod. Not better than original but just as good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome, just plain awesome
This cd is without question the greatest cd ever recorded

Bawitdaba: Are you kidding me? Nominated for a grammy in 2000 AMAZING SONG! 20/20

Cowboy: SwEeT 19/20

Devil Without A Cause: One of the best Kid Rock song ever made. sweet awesome amazing enough said 20/20

I Am The Bullgod: amazingly awesome 20/20

Roving Gangsta: Sorta ok, but still pretty good 15/20

Wasting Time: FUNNY, GOOD, AWESOME! 20/20

Welcome 2 The Party: really good 18/20

I Got One For Ya: When you buy this cd, just skip this song 2/20

Somebody's Gotta Feel This: Gotta love the football song 20/20

Fist of Rage: Not much to say... 16/20

Only God Knows Why: THE BEST KID ROCK SONG HANDS DOWN 1,00000/20

Where U At Rock: Good, but the I AM THE BULLGOD mix at the end was unnessary 19/20

Reviews (42)

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM
I enjoy this album because of it's rawness yet she comes off as a feminine 'bad girl' with a touch of class. Yes, I'll be the first one to admit her lyrics are a bit vulgar but sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't meaning sometimes I feel like listening to raunchy music, sometimes I don't just like with any genre I listen to (Pop, rock, rap, etc.) but talent is talent and she has just that to me, TALENT. (It also helps that she is a pretty young lady. It's more believable when she's rapping about sex and sexual situations whereas if you look a hot mess, it's like c'mon a la the ugly horrible Khia'please bless that talent-less mess, she could learn a few things from Trina, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, hell, anyone with sight!!!)

Anyway, here are my ratings:

Big Lick 3/5 Not one of her best songs and I don't like The Lost Tribe, they suck at rapping in my opinion and make the song bad

Da Baddest B*tch 5/5 Her lyrics and sassiness show why she is and will always be the Baddest B*tch! Great song (a good song to jog to, you actually do feel like the baddest b*tch'LoL!)

If U 4/5 A superior 'F*ck A Man' anthem, pretty cool

Hairdresser skit 2/5 Don't like the hairdresser, her voice is annoying as all hell and her calling Trina "b*tch" every other word isn't really called for, just silly

Ain't Sh*t 5/5 My second favorite song on this album. Excellent message (for those who can relate to being with a sorry man) and Louis Lane (the guest rapper) adds just the right spice to the already flawless song

Off the Chain With It 2/5 Don't like this song at all, it's nothing special

69 ways 3/5 A sexy song but not one of my favorites, it's ok

Club Skit 4/5 Funny

Ball With Me 4/5 Great song, great beat, great lyrics, I also like the guest rapper's part (24 karats), just a great song

Watch Yo Back 2/5 Ick, I always skip past this song

Off Glass 5/5 My all time favorite off this album! YES YES YES!! Sick a** beat, love the lyrics, my type of song. Exceptional

Answering Machine Skit 4/5 Another funny skit

I Don't Need You 5/5 Another favorite! Trina and Trick Daddy make me laugh with this song and I love it!

I Need 1/5 Yikes! This song is HORRIBLE and over the top with raunchiness, I mean seriously now. It just doesn't do anything for me and I don't like the guest rapper Tre+6...no thanks, I always pass on this track

I'll Always 4/5 Shows a softer side, the 'I love you' side. She's talking about loving a man, a fantastic song with a wonderful familiar hook (from the Isley Brothers "Atlantis" song)

Mama 4/5 Sweet song about her mother, we all can relate to this one (unless you're Eminem...hehehehe)

Take Me 5/5 Excellent song. It shows that she doesn't want to always be considered a "freak ho" but as an equal which she is. I love this song and I also love the hook being sang by 1/3 of the group Total (Pam)

Pull Over 3/5 This song is cool and danceable

Overall, this album is great. I don't know why people rate it one star I mean, the cd is better than that and they know it but they're being spiteful but hey, to each it's own. If you don't care for sexually graphic lyrics then this is NOT the album for you. If you're under 18 (your young fast behind better listen to Hilary Duff for now and leave this cd and type of music to grown folks), this is NOT the album for you. If you blush at words such as d*ck or p*ssy and any other sexual terminology, this is NOT the album for you. If you don't fit into those categories I just listed and you want to hear a fresh voice to female rap who has cool lyrics and beats, this is YOUR album. Just my opinion though, take it or leave it. :-)

3-0 out of 5 stars It's Good For What It's Supposed To Be Good For (3 Stars)
Let's be real. Trina can rhyme a little bit, but she's not out of this world like other reviewers want to make her. This album, for the most part, comes down to beats. She shows some promise on the very first track "The Big Lick", but after that she starts to cool off. There really aren't any wack beats on the album so all the shortcomings come on the lyrical side of the album. On tracks like "If U", Trina has trouble staying on beat, so the song is pretty wack. And the skits are straight corny. The CD is good for what it's supposed to be good for though: sex driven rhymes over bass heavy tracks. The joke is on you if you copped this album and didn't expect a lot of sex talk. She made her name from it, she has to do it. And she does it better than Foxy or Kim did it if you ask me. But like I said, Trina can rhyme for a female. She's won't be on Jean Grae or Lauryn Hill's level in this lifetime, but she's not as wack as Khia, Charli Baltimore, or Amil. Overall, this is a good party CD. Don't buy this CD in hopes of finding depth or astounding lyricism. You won't find it here. But it's great for parties and that's what it's supposed to be good for.

Standout Tracks: The Big Lick (My Favorite), Pull Over, The Baddest Bit*h, and Off The Chain With It feat. Trick Daddy

5-0 out of 5 stars Trina is the Rap Queen
Trina really takes hold with this album. I cant think of anyone except Lil Kim that even comes close to her. Trina has some Raw lyrics, and really makes her case with this album. Rock on Trina. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The impact of Marilyn Manson's subversive musical agenda has waned, and what's left is a provocative, talented artist writing affecting, powerful, and yes, controversial songs. Although Holy Wood is the third title of a trilogy that began with 1996's Antichrist Superstar, the album stands on its own. Rife with references to the Beatles and the Kennedys, and full of pop-culture barbs, Holy Wood is a musically diverse and powerful statement. The memorable sing-along "Disposable Teens" boasts the same kind of staccato, Teutonic, first-thrusting power introduced with "Beautiful People," while "Fight Song" is the Sex Pistols meets Blur by way of Nirvana. While a futuristic, nihilistic tint pervades Manson's work, passion is also prevalent, notably in the spooky acoustic number "A Place in the Dirt" and the brutal "Death Song." Like Marilyn Manson the man, Holy Wood is intelligent, dynamic, and multifaceted, with myriad charms that are evident to the tuned-in listener. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Impressive
You can't help but admire Marilyn Manson's devotion to music and marketing. 'Holy Wood' has been carefully produced, and the effort involved is clear to see. Everything from the self-conscious cover, to the spooky tarot cards and angst-ridden lyrics have been created with special care and attention. The album is worth buying just for the sheer detail and depth. But more importantly than that - Manson's music is excellent, and you'd be a fool to think otherwise! 'The Fight Song' and 'Disposable Teens' are terribly catchy, and will keep you entertained for hours upon end - rather like 'The Beautiful People'. 'The Nobodies' and 'Lamb of God' have nice melodies, while 'The Death Song' and 'Burning Flag' return to Trent Reznor's industrial influence. David Bowie's glam-rock still exists too, notably during 'Coma Black'. I'd rate this album ahead of 'Antichrist Superstar', because it gives you a wider variety of music, and the lyrics have reached a new level.

4-0 out of 5 stars My rating system makes no sense
I gave the Colour and the Shape 4 stars and Antichrist Superstar 5, even though I think I like the former more. I also probably like this CD more than ACS, but I can't really decide. I think Mr. Manson gave in too much to Trent Reznor on ACS, and a lot of it sounds like a Nine Inch Nails CD. The lyrics are Marilyn's strong suit and it is too difficult to understand them too frequently on ACS. About this CD, the first 10 songs are oustanding; some of the finest songs I've ever heard. Target Audience not only has a great tune relative to other Marilyn Manson songs, it just has a great tune. The only problem I have with this is it goes on slightly too long. I don't really dislike any of the songs, but I sometimes go back to the beginning once song 14 or 15 comes around.
If you're reading this and don't have it yet, I certainly would recommend buying it. If you are a fan of the Beautiful People, I would buy this before ACS. This CD is more rock and less industrial. Anyway, I think everyone should buy this and at least give it a chance.

4-0 out of 5 stars PUNK!
I like this album because it has a very strong punk rock sound. My favorite song on this is "burning flag" Well it is way better than his new release. I think this album is worth getting if youre a fan of punk rock period. Great CD. ... Read more
