The Marshall Mathers LP (Edited)

It's hard to know what to make of Eminem, even if you realize that half of what he says is sincere and half is a put-on. The trick isn't just figuring out which is what -- it's realizing that there's truth in the joke, and vice versa. That's why many listeners and critics were taken aback by his dark, carnival-esque debut The Slim Shady LP, even dismissing his considerable skills as a rapper and social satirist because the vulgarities and gross-out humor were too detailed, even shocking, for some to believe that it was anything but real. As it turns out, that very blurring of boundaries is what gave the record depth, and to Eminem's credit, he decides to exploit that confusion on his masterful second record, The Marshall Mathers LP. Some may think that it's significant that he named the album after his birth name, that the recording will be more personal or introspective than a debut named after his stage persona's alter ego (how post-modern is that, anyway?), but that's just not the case. Eminem is all about blurring the distinction between reality and fiction, humor and horror, satire and documentary, so it makes perfect sense that The Marshall Mathers LP is no more or no less "real" than The Slim Shady LP. It is, however, a fairly brilliant expansion of his debut, turning his spare, menacing hip-hop into a hyper-surreal, wittily disturbing thrill ride. The Marshal Mathers LP is both funnier and darker than his debut, with jabs at pop star peers ("The Real Slim Shady") sitting virtually side-by-side with violent fantasies of retribution ("Kim," written about the mother of his child -- who he reconciled with and married after recording this track). Eminem's writing is so sharp and clever that the jokes cut as deeply as the explorations of his ruptured psyches. Thankfully, the production is nearly as evocative as the raps, matching the tone of the lyrics with liquid basslines, stuttering rhythms, slight sound effects, and spacious soundscapes. There may not be overpowering hooks on every track -- just enough to ensure radio play -- but the album works as a whole, always drawing a listener into the paranoid, violent, and very funny world of Eminem. But, once you're in, Eminem makes no compromises. He doesn't care if you understand exactly where he's at, and he doesn't offer any apologies if you can't sort the fact from the fiction -- that's your job as a listener. As an artist, he's supposed to create his own world, and with this terrific second effort, he certainly has. It may be a world that is as intriguing as it is infuriating, but it is without question his own, which is far more than most of his peers -- in both hip-hop and rock -- are able to accomplish at the dawn of a new millennium. [The Marshall Mathers LP was also released in a "clean" version, containing no profanities or vulgarities. It might miss the point somewhat, since profanity is part of Eminem's genius -- or, it could be as simple as his claim "Will Smith doesn't have to cuss to sell records/Well, I do...so **** him" -- but this will certainly be of use of to worried parents.] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

This is Eminem's Second commerical Album, the Edited Version, I personally like the edited version better since it has the song "The Kids" on there instead of "Kim" this is a decent album, lots of cursing even on the edited version, they block out alot of violence and drug content, but still let most of the cursing through. but otherwise it's a pretty good album

I purchased this not knowing it was the edited clean version and was very disappointed. All of the songs are butchered and they just take words out so it's like listening to someone cutting out from a bad cell phone reception all the time. Don't waste money on the edited version just get the real album not this excuse for one.
