On my new Playlist
page, I have an introductory look at Eminem's "Stan", touching on some things I'll explain a bit more in my review. I fear now that less exposed readers will be shaking their heads and mouthing the word "Eminem?" in dismay. So let me assure you, this is one hell of an excellent album. I'm not going to say that it "deserves to be treated seriously", because as some of my more flowery moments have demonstrated I tend to take everything somewhat seriously these days. Besides which, "The Marshall Mathers LP" is too self-aware to merely be categorised as "a serious album"... is this in fact one of the most self-aware albums ever made? More thoughts to come... Playlist
is going to serve the function of my previous "Songs Of The Week" list, only allowing me to comment on each song as well. More will be going up so keep checking back.
