CRITIC REVIEWS

The Telegraph
Creaky old samples, a homage to Hitchcock, and jokes so crass only the rapper's most dedicated listeners will have the stomach to bear them.

Exclaim!

During the flashes when the artist born Marshall Mathers feels free of this critical gaze ... this surprise Christmas gift to diehard stans, Music to Be Murdered By - Side B, soars something brilliant.

HipHopDX

Side B is not Eminem at his absolute best, but it’s substantial in the larger context of Hip Hop — and sure to keep Stans satisfied. Unfortunately for those praying on his (musical) downfall, you’ll have to keep holding your breath.

The Forty-Five

Eminem might be getting older but he’s not going gently – he’s sticking around to commit his time to verse, crying surprise until one day a real surprise might show up.

Beats Per Minute

Truly, Side B is hard to unpack. The very fact that it’s Mathers’ loosest album in quite some time is the reason why so many have found weaknesses to peck away at, yet those very people pecking are the same who’ve long found the rapper’s work to be too try-hard and self-serious.

The Guardian
The album’s deluxe version adds an hour of new music rich in dextrous delivery but intent on pushing the same old buttons.

Rolling Stone

These days, his diatribes fit safely within the margins of mainstream agitation, no matter how much he’d like us to believe he’s still pushing the envelope.

Why do we got an A-B-C-D-E-F-G type beat on Alfred's Theme.

"Sucker for Pain I'm stuck in this radioactive pattern. Her by her motherfucking hair is all I Imagine... Dragons!"
"At the crib playing Fortnite with your Grandma"
"Call me Santa Clause because at the present I out rap them all"
"Hand Sani... I'm cutting off ties"
"There were two Doctor Dre's, that's a Paradox"
"Got money up the ass, call it toilet paper"
"I'm a card ... read more

EDIT THREE THIS IS AN AUTO 0 BECAUSE DADDY FANTANO GAVE IT A 3

Edit Two - I can’t stop listening to this ‘corny’ ass shit.

Well, here we go again. 2020 is truly over, Eminem has dropped...a decent album? [Edit - Each listen gets better!]

Eminem heard us crying about how his projects were way too long, had shitty production and didn’t stay on topic. Did he...listen to us? His production has improved drastically, and he seems to be staying on the topic of Alfred ... read more

I don't know if Music to Be Murdered By: Side B sounds like a real sequel, if it's a catalogue of songs not chosen for the first side or if it's a mixture of both, but in any case this new volume is not equipped to catch up with the initial one. On the contrary Side B supports the fact that despite an interesting theme that suits him well, Eminem is not suited to release this kind of album. In my opinion, this is not only one more disillusionment, it's worse.
