The album, Recovery, was one of the best albums I’ve ever bought. It’s an amazing cd filled with inspiration and experiences that I can’t even imagine. Eminem pairs up with many different artists on this album which is probably why it was so different from any of his others. His album was number one on the billboards for two weeks when it debuted, making it the second most selling album of 2010.

“And to the fans, I'll never let you down again, I'm back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let's be honest, that last Relapse CD was "ehhhh"
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground.”
-Not Afraid

As you read through those lines, you can tell Eminem was ready to make a change when he did. His old songs were considered to be rude and suggestive. To be honest, I was not a fan of his then. I would not listen to him, I would tell people he’s never going to change, his music will always be the lame perverted stuff it is now. Well, he totally proved me wrong. Releasing “Not Afraid” as his first single was an excellent idea. It showed his fans and other music listeners that he was trying to do better and become a better musician. In an interview Eminem talks about his pervious album, Relapse, “I felt like I did a lot of growing up, and I don’t really feel like the last album really reflected where I was mentally.” He says. He shows more emotion then he ever has before in this album, with his crazy good lyrics and catchy beats, I believe Marshall Mathers has truly proved himself.

I wrote this for one of my classes and I thought I'd share it. I'm raelly proud of Eminem and his work. I found my quotes from an interview on the npr website.
