There is absolutely no way that this album was as good as the Slim Shady LP, just no way.
I would put his best songs from Relapse right up against his best songs from The Slim Shady LP.
I think that album is a touch overrated, because I don't think it has that one great song that separated itself from the rest... like he did with The Way I Am. I think he has that with Underground and Beautiful. Both those songs are pretty much head over heels better than every other track.
I think the best songs (semi-order) on the Slim Shady LP are:
1a. Rock Bottom
1b. Role Model
1c. Guilty Conscience
1d. If I Had
1e. '97 Bonnie and Clyde
6b. I'm Shady
6c. Brain Damage
6d. Just Don't Give A ****
6e. Still Don't Give a ****
10a. My Name Is
10b. As The World Turns
12a. My Fault
12b. Cum on Everybody
14. Bad Meets Evil
What makes this CD so great is that, As The World Turns is about 10th or 11th best song on the album and its pretty ******* good. This album is just deep. Every track (Bad Meets Evil is kind of average) is good to borderline great. Even though My Name Is, is his biggest hit song (Probably ever), I don't know if I'd call it great. It's more like a #2 to a great track like The Way I Am, which is his best song and something he'll probably never touch. I don't think any rapper can touch that song, but, to me, that's what's missing on the Slim Shady LP. That one great song that seperates itself from the rest of the album. Stan, Cleaning out My Closet, Like Toy Soldiers, Mockingbird, When I'm Gone; along with Beautiful and Underground are #1 songs to me.
Relapse has about three songs that would be better than the best song on the Slim Shady LP.
And Stay Wide Awake is right in the same group as the top 5 songs I mentioned on the Slim Shady LP. It's not a #1 song, but it would be a great #2.
The only thing I think the Slim Shady LP has that Relapse might not, is the quality from track to track. I haven't heard all these tracks enough to go down through the entire list, but there's about 4 songs that I would call average at this point, where as the Slim Shady LP has one song that I would call average. I wore that CD out when it first came out, and I haven't had the time to do it with the Relapse CD yet (main reason is because I can't stop listening to the top 3 songs I mentioned).

I honestly believe Reggie Bush has turned into exactly the type of player I envisioned.

Tahj Boyd has the best fundamentals of any QB in this class, I think his game translates great to the NFL.
He is still alive? Saw him on Kimmel the other day, why does no one else care that he completely lip synchs his performances? Is that just the way it's supposed to be...he wasn't even trying to match the words with his lips, it was really lame. He was just dancing and posing round the stage.
Your opinion is wrong. Those songs are really ******* terrible.
What makes them terrible?

Just let it go RWO.
We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.
