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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The smartest thing Em' says on this album is admitting that Kanye West would have torn him apart if he had started beef.
This album introduces us to what I like to call "Eminem Lite", meaning; yeah, it's clearly Eminem...but he's not saying anything even one quarter as controversial, meaningful, personal or even intelligent.
