Recovery, the new album by Eminem, has a history that dates back to 2007, when it was then planned as the follow-up to Relapse. With its original title of Relapse 2, the project started taking on a life of its own and slowly evolved into a separate creature altogether. In previous interviews, the rap legend has stated: “…as I kept recording and working with new producers, the idea of a sequel to Relapse started to make less and less sense to me, and I wanted to make a completely new album. The music on Recovery came out very different from Relapse, and I think it deserves its own title.”
What’s so different? According to Eminem, it’s a more “emotionally driven” spectacle, and critical reception, love it or hate it, tends to agree. With 17 tracks and guest appearances from Rihanna, Pink, and Lil’ Wayne, Eminem delivers a lyrical punch in the face more introspective, violent and nasty than anything that’s come before it.
