Eminem - Music To Be Murdered By
Jan 17, 2020 (updated Jan 18, 2020)
0
Edit 2: To show people I’m not just being biased and giving this album a 0 due to it being Eminem, I will extend on this here. First off I find the theme to be ungodly annoying. My main problem with a lot of these songs is that Eminem despite what people have said, has never changed. He says the same edgy and offensive shit to try and get clicks while rapping super fast. And I guess it works for him as his albums go number 1, but it doesn’t appeal to me at all. If it appeals to you that’s fine but I don’t think rapping fast necessarily makes you good and I know half the people saying that I should go back to listen to auto tune probably don’t understand what the hell he’s saying either because who the fuck can when someone is rapping that fast. If it wasn’t for JuiceWRLD, Anderson .Paak, and Don Tolliver, then the features would easily be some of the worst I’ve heard in a while. Theres just nothing about Em’s flow that appeals to me and at the age of 47 I feel like it’s time to mature your music at least a little bit. Lastly, people complaining about rapid fire 0’s and 100’s on here is a reach. None of us are being paid for this. I do this because I genuinely enjoy music and if people want to rate this a 0, I don’t care. If people want to rate it a 100, I don’t care. At the end of the day, this is a hobby we all share and I don’t feel we should tear each other down on reviews because we don’t agree with the way people are reviewing things. I think I’m gonna be done with this review now because I don’t want to be super negative. At the end of the day this is just a bunch of cool people sharing opinions on music and if they want to post a joke or shitpost, then it’s not a big deal.



Edit: This is the best album I’ve ever heard. I think I’m gonna give this one a 0


This sucks fucking ass. I’m gonna go listen to Circles now and cleanse my ears of the terrible verses and bad Ed Sheeran feature. Only Eminem could make jokes about a FUCKING BOMBING and then try to recover by making a song about guns. Now I am very pro gun control but come the fuck on Em. Please don’t make jokes about any tragedy.

" Please don’t make jokes about any tragedy."

LOL
Jan 17, 2020
@Teak I really don’t see what’s so funny about having to ask a 50 year old to not make fun of an event that had a bunch of innocent people bombed but okay
Jan 17, 2020
Shut up if you don’t wanna be offended you should listen to something else
Jan 17, 2020
@Felix890 LMAO. I listen to shit so I can review it. That’s something you can’t comprehend since you are a bot and will automatically give this shitty album a100
Jan 17, 2020
Reviewing a hip hop album within hours? Fucking really? Also I think you missed the whole point of hip hop and you don't know what you are fucking talking about I suggest you go review some pop songs, you yourself are a 0
Jan 17, 2020
@Killian_J there are a lot of reviews on this album already Embot. I love hip hop actually lmao
Jan 17, 2020
Trollololol go listen to some 1d weak ass
Jan 17, 2020
It is okay my friend for people like you the message just flies over your head. You will never understand this type of music. Go back to listening to Cardi-B and Migos talk about how much money they have. I am sure the autotune will be so slow that you can understand what they are saying.
Jan 17, 2020
I’m assuming you were born 1999, which would explain a lot of your ‘review’
Jan 17, 2020
To be fair to Cman, the line in the song was "But I'm contemplating yelling "Bombs away" on the game / Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting". It may be intentioned as an attack on the pop music industry that Ariana Grande represents, but the joke's ultimately at the expense of the bombing's victims, which is a hell of a line to cross. Cman is justified in criticising Eminem on this point; it's one thing to make fun of terrorists, but making fun of their victims is tasteless to say the least.

Philip, this is the same person who mentioned the Columbine shooters in his earlier albums, talked about killing his wife in his first album, poked fun at Christopher Reeves after his death, talked about the Boston marathon in his compilation album. He talks about real life scenarios and puts them in his music. That’s what makes his lyrics so raw. But when you get snowflake millennials that listen to it, it’s too much for them. They just want catchy beats and mentions of prescription drugs. So just avoid the music If it’s too much for you to handle. I don’t really know what you expect of an Eminem album (to Cman, not you Phil)
Jan 17, 2020
You must have a very narrow view of music if you think the only alternative to Eminem's music is "catchy beats and mentions of prescription drugs", CPitt.
Jan 17, 2020
People asked for the old Em back. This is it. Since yo ugly offended easily, this isn’t the music for you. I had a feeling Eminem couldn’t realease music without people like you getting butthurt or offended nowadays .
Jan 17, 2020
Phil, get back to reviewing Taylor Swift. If having a wide view of music includes the music you’ve been reviewing (bar Pink Floyd)...I’m good. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
Jan 17, 2020
Just a troll
Jan 17, 2020
Man, this LIBTARD is sure being triggered by Eminem right now (This is joke, don’t take it seriously)
Jan 17, 2020
omG u cant r3v1ew rap albums so f4st!!111!!11111!!! pls wait 23 more minutes ok thxxxxx
Jan 17, 2020
You probably just too young to apreciate the Slim/Em mix
Jan 17, 2020
Congrats! You got everybody's attention with a stupid ass biased review.
Jan 17, 2020
Man Eminem stans are the worst. Getting triggered over an amateur music reviewer lol.
Jan 17, 2020
Exactly. An amateur...so shut the fuck up ๐Ÿ˜
Jan 17, 2020
@CPitt god forbid I get to have an opinion. If you like the album that’s fine but you don’t need to challenge everyone that doesn’t like it. At the end of the day I can review whatever the fuck I want and if you don’t like seeing my reviews then block me. Now go get a fat dip of chewing tobacco in, drink your Mountain Dew, and get the hell off my review.
Jan 17, 2020
I assume all these people with no PFP and 0 reviews are all the same person making puppet accounts. Kind of pathetic to go to all that effort for an album that is beyond fucking horrendous.
Jan 17, 2020
If he's an amateur and his opinion doesn't matter then why the fuck does your shitty amateur opinion matter?
Jan 17, 2020
@Cman99 - I’m just playing man. But for real, the “Please don’t make jokes about any tragedy“ part is a little laughable because of the artist at hand. Oh, and I’m not American so wouldn’t have the slightest clue where to get Mountain Dew & chewing tobacco ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ
Jan 17, 2020
@CPitt all good. I understand Eminem has been known to joke about stuff like that which is why I don’t really like his music. It’s okay if other people do but it’s not worth bot spamming and attacking someone over just because they don’t like it.
Jan 17, 2020
@Cman99 i like how you took this, props for actually being able to take an opinion. But as for the album,, i definitely can see where you're coming from and i support you for that, if it was one of these commenter's folks who died at the concert they would NOT be okay with this. While i enjoyed the album, i regret saying that Em did make a mistake on that Ariana Grande thing, thats not good with me. Plus i myself dont like Charlamagne Tha God but i thought of Kamikaze as an appropriate response album to that, but now that hes apologising for that over No Regrets it kinda fails the point??? and apart from that i still think of him as the best rapper to have ever lived, but well its an opinion haha. I really didn't like the contrasting themes being spoken of here, Darkness on one side showcasing the gritty scenery of a mass shooter's mentality and comparing himself to one on Unaccomadated? But anyway, ill drop off now im sleepy af.
Jan 17, 2020
I'd think Em fans would love this review man. Em has been desperately clinging to the idea that he's as offensive & edgy as ever for a long time and this review actually says he is.

Id think that it would be a fresh breath of air for a review to actually consider Em offensive as opposed to a sad old man desperately clinging to relevance with a pale imitation of his s old shtick.
Jan 17, 2020
@Stiborge at the end of the day though, I’m offended but it just reflects poorly on Eminem. He grasps at anything to try to make himself look edgy as a 50 year old and that’s honestly what I dislike about him the most
Jan 17, 2020
even if you think hes tasteless unfunny joke was bad you should at least review it biased on the rest of the album and his skill as a rapper and on replay value not just he said something bad fuck this whole album
Jan 17, 2020
@peleclipse I did listen to the whole album. I didn’t fucking like it. It doesn’t matter what I think though like I said you can enjoy it.
Jan 17, 2020
Good god. Some of y’all need to chill
Jan 18, 2020
Holy shit I just saw these comments. Em stans are something else. Everybody needs to chill out and realize this site is to have fun and put your opinion on a record. Even if this album didn’t have a few 0s it would still very well be in the red. People are super weird on this app.

I get where people come from but holy fuck this site gets so toxic from people caring so god damn much about other peoples reviews. If the site really has issues with 100 or 0 review bombs they should/will get removed by the AOTY staff or community leaders or whatever. This was a good review, don’t worry about anything else.
Jan 18, 2020
"if people want to rate this a 0, I don’t care. If people want to rate it a 100, I don’t care." Great way to sum it up, though I will respond by saying that since there's nothing wrong with rating an album whatever you feel is appropriate and using AOTY however you'd like to, then there's also nothing wrong with critiquing or praising someone else's review or the way they review things. It's really only "tearing each other down" when people are verbally threatened or worse. Sure, maybe you may not like what others have to say, but you can't control how they think or interact. Generally, I don't agree with the sentiment of "if you don't have anything good to say, don't say it". Personally, if I feel there's something I don't like that I'd want to get off my chest, I'll simply say it, so what? Just because I don't like a review and have problems with it doesn't mean I have a strong negative incentive against you. [1]

Jan 18, 2020
Now this is just my two cents, but I find it odd how you felt the need to respond and highlight something I briefly mentioned in my review in this update post. Was I specifically targeting people like you? Maybe it might've come off that way, then in that case, I apologize, but I was merely stating a brutally honest frustration and critique I had to get off my chest, in a not-so serious, lighthearted tone, don't really get what makes it a "complaint". It does confuse me how more people put more focus on my one-sentence rant than the actual review itself, but I digress.

If you genuinely feel this record is close to a 100 or a 0, perfectly fine, I won't take that away from you. But as someone who's been on the site for a while and seen the general behavior of the community as a whole, it does get a bit, "problematic" per se to have to deal with a few botted accounts from time to time who argue toxically with the community (like in this comment section) and reviews that may not follow...
Jan 18, 2020
...the "Review Guidelines".

I don't want to go too much into a rant so I'll just end it off here. Don't have much else to say. I'm not here saying that you shouldn't make reviews, rate albums however you'd like to or post something silly for the fun of it. Maybe the site itself discourages this behavior more and more, but frankly it's not a problem. Not a fan of certain types of reviews that I may often criticize, but then again, I have no authority in telling people what or what not to do, no one does. Sorry if it might've come off that way, I wasn't aiming to target people like you at all.
Jan 18, 2020
@inglume it’s all good. I just really want this site to continue to run strong and healthy. You are in the right to criticize and feel any you’d like. At the end of the day, it’s just a review and I don’t hold it against you to criticize them. I was just getting super frustrated yesterday with all the Eminem stans attacking me and I guess I let it frustrate me a little too much. I respect your reviews and opinions a lot on here and enjoy reading them.
Jan 18, 2020
Yeah I totally get ya. These immature Eminem stans keep coming back for every new album, it's like a cult gathering! ๐Ÿ˜…
Jan 18, 2020
The way I see it, rating an album as zero means you think it has no worthwhile value relative to the plethora of music (especially for hip-hop/rap) that is available. Since it is fan review I don't why that's an issue, you're allowed to be more subjective than you would be if reviewing for a professional site. If like you said, an album "doesn't appeal to you at all", then rating it a zero makes perfect since.

It doesn't mean you don't understand hip-hop or that you're a snowflake, like those bots said. What's weird is that none of the bots rated or reviewed the album themselves. I like that you stood by your review and hopefully the bots didn't get you too frustrated.
Jan 18, 2020
@ezrathestar I’m good. It’s just stupid that they come on here to trash how bad the site is but they care enough about our opinions to come on here and try to rattle us

They called us snowflakes millenials... LOL... Sit down gen X and boomers, and listen with attention, maybe then you could actually get the rawness under our music: from Atrocity Exhibition (Danny Brown), to American Boyfriend (Kevin Abstract), we have different pains and ways to express them. Maybe Eminen its just too old fashioned, stuck in the same old ways to say things
Jan 20, 2020
not at everyone calling the rater a triggered libtard or snowflake when theyre getting so triggered over someone else's opinion of an ALBUM. its really not that serious lol
Jan 20, 2020
another user releases a review critical of a shitty, edgy hip hop album and gets swarmed by angry stanbots using slurs and shit? sounds just like the new Lil Darkie! but yeah after reading the review i even feel like my 5 was too generous.

props for writing this and defending it btw
Jan 20, 2020
Eminem has competed well but will never reach the storm that was Grace Vanderwhaal
Jan 20, 2020
be honest, if he didn't make that ariana grande joke you would've rated this way higher
Jan 20, 2020
I think I'll add my two cents to the Ariana Grande comment and why I think it's inappropriate. For one, his age is important, as a guy who's pushing 50 is acting half his age is just upsetting, even from a fan standpoint. Two, when he use to incorporate these shock comments in his lyrics, it was to draw attention to a guy that the media wanted to hide. It was also to piss off many people that, in a time, wouldn't talk about such topics in the media and mainstream. Back them, Columbine was taboo, even to mention, in the medias eyes. Today, however, he only seems to do it (in my opinion) to garner attention because of his waning relevance. Also, his comments would wrap around in his songs in a clever way. The track "Unaccommodating" just mentions the bombing that's it, nothing more. There is a clear difference in the way Marshall used Columbine to help his case on "I'm Back".
Jan 20, 2020
Honestly, I feel as if people should be more outraged by the JonBenet Ramsey comment in the chorus of this track. It's downright distasteful and stupid.
Jan 20, 2020
Also, I was contemplating on giving this album a zero but, for me, there are some enjoyable moments that aren't AWFUL like the majority of this record.
Jan 22, 2020
This is the best AOTY comment section, I haven’t laughed this hard in a while
Jan 22, 2020
Agreed, comedy genius
Jan 24, 2020
@HIVE half of those 0’s were Trisha Paytas albums. I think they deserve the 0 lol.

Trisha Paytas is a good artist with a lot of artistic merit. I value her presence in the music industry
