19 Songs, 1 Hour 17 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

“Do you still believe in me?” Eminem sings on “Believe,” the second song on his ninth LP. Vulnerability and humility aren’t typical traits for the Detroit legend, but every layer of Marshall Mathers is explored across Revival’s 19 tracks. The political, patriotic “Like Home (feat. Alicia Keys)” takes merciless aim at Donald Trump, and “Untouchable” is a multicharacter attack on bigotry and white privilege. “Framed” and “Heat” are violent and controversial enough to appease those pining after Slim Shady, while “Bad Husband” and “Castle” are soul-baringly sentimental. Whichever Eminem is your favorite, one thing remains clear: the dexterously gifted rapper hasn’t lost an ounce of skill in terms of agility and wit. Delivered at lightning speed atop a bevy of production styles—from trap minimalism to Joan Jett and The Cranberries samples—Revival proves once and for all: yes, we still believe in Eminem.

Revival

So, its offical Eminem has fallen off with this release. Untouchable comes of as a song where as if your white you should be shamed. Sorry I don't need some rich millonaire rapper telling me how I should live my life when he has degarded people for years. and now all a sudden hes a liberal, and on the right side of history? Give me a break Marshall Bruce Mathers III. You're a sell out and a complete joke if I could give this album and song negative stars I would. Save your money and buy the new Scarface coming out on the 15th of December which is sure to be a REAL Hip Hop classic. This is just a joke of an album, and Eminem really needs to retire after this one! straight trash.

Are you kidding

I had such high expectations for this album, even after seeing the whack Features. I am throughly upset by Untouchable, i can’t believe eminem would dedicate his music to racial problems and politics. We are all humans, stop focusing on certain groups of people and make good music.
