Teetering on the line between sadistic and brilliant, Eminem (a.k.a. Marshall Mathers III, a.k.a Slim Shady) once again establishes himself as rap's baddest boy -- no mean feat in a world where Ol' Dirty Bastard, Kool Keith, and Luther Campbell freak on the mic. On this supreme follow-up to his breakthrough THE SLIM SHADY LP, Eminem displays ever greater doses of creativity, ambition, and rhyme sensibility. When he's not taking venomous, hysterically funny pot-shots at his critics, squeaky-clean teen idols Christina Aguilera and 'N Sync, or his estranged mommy dearest, this mischevious MC is an ingenious storyteller, delivering cinematic masterpieces such as "Kim" (about his baby's much-maligned mother) and "Stan" (about a suicidal, obsessed fan). And while Slim Shady proves he can battle any MC rhyme for rhyme, as on the lyrical sparring session "B**** Please II," featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and Xzibit, the album's real highlights occur when Em riffs on celebrity -- his own and others. On the abrasive "Who Knew" and the acoustic-guitar driven "Marshall Mathers" -- which give equal weight to his concerns about playing the twisted role model and his off-color cracks about paralyzed actor Christopher Reeve and slain fashion designer Gianni Versace -- Em comes across as the homo-phobic and chauvinist regular guy next door who merely wants to entertain his fans. Like Redd Foxx and Schoolly D before him, Eminem revels in pushing our politically correct buttons. With each insanely rude crack, you'll find yourself asking, Did he really say that? He did - and love him or hate him, that's exactly where his brilliance lies. Big Sexy
