Revival – a Review | Blogmas Day 22

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.

Have you listened to Eminem’s album? Which song is your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

    I find that more and more often songs songs are sounding like a rip off of others, like song writers are challenging to come up with something new…

    I never really listen to Eminem but I’m not ashamed to say I know all of the words to slim shady!
    I’ll havw to give his album a listen because I do love his voice and river is a great song, I also completely agree with you about thst song sounding like a cheap rip off of I love rock and roll, almost like those videos you see like the goat on the taylor swift song

      I wouldn’t be ashamed of that either, that’s impressive!
      Exactly and it’s so unlike Eminem to rip off songs like that x

    This album sounds like a mixed bag! I actually haven’t listened to it yet but collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Beyonce definitely mean I need to make time to sit and play it! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    I had heard he had released a new album but haven’t listened to it. I never was a big fan of him to be honest. But he might have changed since the last time i listened to a song of his! xx corinne

      I’d definitely say his music style has changed a lot xx

    I love Eminem and have been listening to this album at the gym recently. I agree, some tracks aren’t that great but I absolutely love Heat – it’s such motivating workout song! I also love River, the line ‘cos she love danger… psychopath!’ is my favourite lyric on the album. Love your honest review, thanks for sharing! xx
