I thought Eminem's first album was probably one of his best. They're all actually pretty good.

He retired? Since when. Or is he pulling a Jay-z retirement? Where hes still making records, just saying hes retired so they get more press?

Is that the one where he plays with Elton John. He copied that from Guns n' Roses

  

Pretty much the same situation, Axl was being accused of being homophobic and the thing he did was playing with Elton John, i'm not saying it's a bad performance though.

He's not retired, is he?

Last I heard, he's been working on "King Mathers", his next album, for at least a year now.

He's taking his time, maybe because people didn't like Encore as much as his other albums. Personally, I liked it, though The Eminem Show, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Slim Shady LP are all modern classics, and Encore wasn't as good as them.

I'm wondering when this and when Dr. Dre's next album will finally hit. Can't stand the rap I hear on the radio these days.

Not for me.  His standard issue Marshall Mathers tour performances were his best in my opinion.

I've not seen enough of his performances, or anyone's for that matter, to know a good performance from a bad one.

Infinite?  If so, that's my favorite album from him.

That was a landmark performance of his career, but I'd have to add the Boston gig of the "Up in Smoke Tour" to his absolute best performances. The concert was his first live DVD, and Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Ice Cube opened for him. Smoke everywhere, four hip-hop legends together, a public mockery of ICP, and Eminem performing songs of his best album (Marshall Mathers LP). From what I've heard his two shows in Detroit this month (where he headlined with Jay-Z) were fucking incredible. If I could see any artist, living or dead, this guy would be my first choice. Unfortunately he doesn't seem too keen on playing outside of California (seriously you fuckers get every good festival and artist...).

You mean his hiatus? Well I didn't really listen to him until a year before his comeback, so I'm not sure. That one is pretty good though.
