Eminem’s ninth studio album Revival was released on the 15th of December and I was HYPED. I’m not going to lie, I was most excited about his song River with Ed Sheeran… Yes, because it’s Ed Sheeran. It’s just as incredible as I thought it would be and by far my favourite song on the album. But you predicted that, right?
Well, I absolutely love Walk On Water and Beyoncé’s voice sounds beautiful on that track, but apart from that, I think the first four songs were fairly disappointing. They’re very slow and monotone and I’m a big fan of Eminem’s faster raps so they’re not my favourite. I much prefer the bottom half of his album.
I’ve been really loving Remind Me. But, isn’t it just a massive rip off of I Love Rock n Roll? I almost sing the the wrong lyrics every time.
I love Like Home too but that really does NOT sound like Alicia Keys, she sounds so different! A good different though I love the chorus of this song.
Bad Husband‘s chorus reminds me a lot of Ed Sheeran’s music.
I’m not a huge fan of Tragic Endings but I’ve got a feeling it’ll grow on me the more I listen to it.
Framed is so weird but I really like it. It reminds me of Eminem’s old music.
Nowhere Fast contradictorily has a fairly fast rap so I’m a fan. I don’t really like the chorus though – bore.
Heat is up there as one of my favourites, I absolutely love the beat behind it.
Offended has clever lyrics, I like it a lot.
Need Me is crap. Sorry, but it is. I don’t really like P!nk’s slow music, it could send me to sleep. Maybe, that’s what I’ll use it for. Castle is just as bad.
In Your Head has an interesting chorus, I think this will grow on me.
Arose is emotional. It hit me hard.
So there’s my thoughts on the full album. I wonder which, if any will be in this months playlist. Shock, one has already made it into the playlist. No shock, It’s River.
