if indeed this is a "going back to the roots" album like he says, Berzerk is the fun almost poppy song, & everything else is really dark

I'm interested in this as I enjoyed Recovery quite a bit and also thought the last side project he did, Bad Meets Evil: Hell the Sequel was good too.

Album "sequels" are usually terrible.

It's been a while since recovery came out and the bad meets evil was basically an EP and he only had to write half of it. He should have enough material to make something decent. I'm expecting it to be somewhere in between his last 2 albums in terms of quality. Relapse was one of his worst(still a 3.5 out of 5) and recovery(4.5 out of 5) probably my 2nd favorite behind MMLP

Berzerk is ok, the beginning of it reminded me of the Beastie Boys. I liked Survival though.

I'm feeling the music of Berzerk, just not the lyrics or the hook. Survival is ok in a Won't Back Down sort of way. I admit I'm a little down on it right now because I'm appalled at the thought of a "sequel" to a hip-hop masterpiece.

Oh I hope you're right on this. Berzerk sounds like he's trying to imitate the Beastie Boys for sure.

I want Eminem.....brutal, honest & funny.

Love Rick Rubin (he's pimp), love Em but references to K-Fed & Ren & Stimpy in 2013?! I don't know...It's kind of starting to grow on me though.

Here's Eminem in the booth during the Notre Dame Michigan game, trainwreck TV at it's finest.

Eminem Drops Music Video for 'Survival'

Exactly one month after teasing the music video for "Berzerk," the first single from Eminem's ucpoming "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," the rapper has dropped another video -- this time for "Survival," another track from "MMLP2" and a song associated by many with the video game "Call of Duty: Ghosts."

The clip surfaced Tuesday (Oct. 8) on Eminem's VEVO. It features the Detroit native in a warehouse of sorts, while footage of "Call of Duty" plays in the background. It then flashes to Em performing live, before changing back to its warehouse setting.

A drummer performs alongside the rapper, furthering the song's rock sound that was established with "Berzerk." As of Tuesday night, the video has already amassed over 500,000 views on YouTube.

That makes two music videos from "MMLP2," the eighth studio album from the rapper born Marshall Mathers. The record is scheduled for a Nov. 5 release and features production from Rick Rubin, DJ Khalil, Dr. Dre and more.

EIGHTH studio album? (under 'Eminem')

I don't think that's accurate.

If you start counting at The Slim Shady LP this will be number 7. If you count Infinite then it is 8.

Infinite
The Slim Shady LP
The Marshall Mathers LP
Eminem Show
Encore
Relapse
Recovery
MMLP2

Yeah, but "Encore" is a best of. Not an original. And yeah, I highly doubt anyone, including me, has even heard "Infinite."

Semantics...yeah!

Encore wasn't a best of, you're thinking of Curtain Call.

And just because you (or anyone) hasn't heard of Infinite doesn't make it any less an album.



Track listing:
1. "Infinite"
2. "W.E.G.O." (Interlude) (featuring Proof & DJ Head)
3. "It's OK" (featuring Eye-Kyu)
4. "313" (featuring Eye-Kyu)
5. "Tonite"
6. "Maxine" (featuring Mr. Porter & Three)
7. "Open Mic" (featuring Thyme)
8. "Never 2 Far"
9. "Searchin'" (featuring Eye-Kyu)
10. "Backstabber"
11. "Jealousy Woes II"

Wait what..because it's lesser known to the mainstream makes it not an album? What kind of thinking is that exactly? Granted I haven't heard the album (I've heard of it but never listened to it) but I still count it as part of his discography.

I think you need clarification on the definition of semantics. This is his eighth studio album.

I like Survival more than Berzerk, but I had read that it will only be on the COD soundtrack and not on the MMLP2.

Personally, I don't like it when artists name albums as sequels because all it will do is have people compare and contrast its predecessor with the current. The problem here is that Eminem is not Eminem of 2000, so MMLP2 will be a very stark contrast in terms of tone, lyricial content and production.

Recovery was really well done, so I wouldn't have minded another album in that direction. Berzerk though has a completely different style I'm not accustomed to from Em, so I don't know what to expect on the album. I can still listen to Eminem's "worst" (Encore) more than most modern rap so I'm sure this won't be any different.

People need to realize he's a shell of himself in comparison to the output of his first three major label albums.

Re: Eminem "MMLP II" or "Marshall Mathers LP II" out 11/5/13 new song Berzerk

I feel like Em has the same disease Nas has struggled with during parts of his career -- being a great lyricist, but rapping over weak beats. Survival sounds like a beat that some amateur beat maker made in FL after figuring out how to count bars.

It's cool that Em is rhyming over rock-centric beats, but compare either of these beats to say Black Skinhead or either half of Picasso Baby. Both of those knock, but these beats Em is choosing? Weak-sauce.

I know everyone has different tastes, and people are clearly grooving on these tracks, but I just wish Em would pick/make harder beats.
