You didn't like Cleaning Out My Closet, Soldier, or 'Til I Collapse? Those are 3 of Eminem's best songs IMO. And I also think White America is up there too, but you don't like that. I'm having a hard time understanding your preferences b/c theres a lot of stuff i agree on with you but a lot i don't. The way Eminem Show hit me was awesome. MM LP probably hit me harder and made more of an impression (but then again i was in like 7th grade), but I find that Eminem Show has had more of a lasting value with me. I guess it's all just personal opinion though. To each his own.
I don't remember soldier, but don't actually like Cleaing Out my Closet or Til I Collapse. To be honest, my taste changes often. If you had talked to me back when say Cleaning Out was being played everywhere, I would've said I liked the song.
My favorite eminem songs are by far Infinite, Bad Meets Evil, and 313.... he steadily got worse album by album.
To sum it up I prefered him when he had the AZ sound, not the Cage sound.
