Sorry I’ve been inconsistent everyone; I’ve been ill. Of course it would happen just as i decide to take reviewing seriously again! It seems the universe is trying to tell me something – but i will insist to not listen and keep buggering on.
Just a quick one here as this isn’t a song, but it is interesting that he included this audio recording from his answer phone in the album, and near the start as well. I think, if we look back on the 3 songs and messages so far he’s admitted he’s had failures in the past but points out that he is all so one of the best in the industry, and then picks fault with that industry for taking what he feels is a wrong direction with the new talent being bought through.
With that in mind i think this is here for the industries benefit. He’s saying to all the rappers he’s pissed off and to all the labels that support and protect them that ‘look, i’m being told this isn’t a good idea! I know this isn’t what i should be doing!’ but maybe he feels an album like this is the only way left to get his point across and the rappers coming for him will only understand that he is serious about being too big to respond to their challenges by doing so in the first place so he can prove he’s been told not to.
It’s like punching a kid who has spent all day trying to piss you off in the face at school in front of the teacher. The kid gets the benefit of hearing you be told off so they know you weren’t suppose to do that, but only after you’ve already punched them. I think this album is meant to be that punch, not so much thrown to shut the other rappers up but to prove that he’s not chicken; it’s just the industry expects him to be better than that.

Life always has a way of making you see the bad things, the darker and uglier sidel . No matter how rich, materialistically or spiritually you become life always has a way of making you feel a struggle. We all live with a weight on our life and if we shift it, another one appears to fill the gap. The truth is we do shake off our problems and the weight does get lighter… it only feels the same because we forget the weight we use to carry. Continue reading “Lucky you (ft.

No review yesterday. If you were expecting this song at some point in the last 24 hours, you were right to, and i planned to. Unfortunately last night i took a funny turn, felt the vapors… was ill. I’m back now for a review or two, so sorry about that and on with the show! Continue reading “Greatest – Kamikaze by Eminem”
So I’m taking reviewing seriously now, and writing a book, and working full-time, and DMing a home-brew D&D, and read, game, watch movies, run a flat, support my loving other half (as she supports me) and in my non existent spare time… i breath as a hobby.

So Steph loves Mamma Mia and as soon as she knew a squeal was on the way, i knew i was doomed. That’s not to say i don’t like Mamma Mia, the music of ABBA or chic flicks…. Some of my most guilty pleasure movies were created with a female audience in mind… i just had a strong feeling i wouldn’t be enjoying every minuet. At least i knew what i was walking into.

Funny that i should procrastinate for writing this songs review which has a very pro-active message. Almost intentionally ironic on my part; maybe it was… Continue reading “From now on – The Greatest showman album & Album score”
