PopMatters

For all of its stumbles into Em’s all-too-common crutches, however, Recovery is at the very least showing signs of maturity amongst raps that are as skilled as anything he’s done since The Marshall Mathers LP.

50
Drowned in Sound

The songs where he attempts to reiterate his past glories are arguably the biggest failures of all. The album is a sprawling, confusing, self-indulgent mess.

30
Tiny Mix Tapes

For the average listener, Recovery will prove to be a very stale and disposable record; for the discerning Eminem fan, a sad and unwitting betrayal.

28
Pitchfork

Eminem spends nearly half of Recovery insisting he's the best rapper alive, but for the first time in his career, he actually sounds clumsy.

It's not an Eminem album, it has no similarities to any of his previous works. On the good side, I can't see any songs that are made just to be made. Noisy stuff, not smart neither good rhyming but it has a new yelling flow which is kinda interesting.

I'm being very generous. This is the worst rap album ever.

The album cover is supposed to symbolize Em's road to recovery from addiction and depression, but to me all it shows is a man lost, searching for what made him so special early on. Ironically and sadly, it was what he is leaving behind: anger, drugs and hatred.

Had Great songs some of eminem's best but it was other songs in the album that did let him down. But not to much.
