Default Eminem - Infinite



1. Infinite 6/5
2. It's Ok 5/5
3. 313 5/5
4. Tonight 4/5
5. Maxine 3/5
6. Open Mic 5/5
7. Never 2 Far 5/5
8. Searchin' 5/5
9. Backstabber 5/5
10. Jealousy Woes II 5/5


Alright, so this is Eminem's first cd as most of you aleady know... to me this is also Em's best cd, the lyrics are sooo good by EMINEM on EVERY SINGLE SONG, hell i would go as far as to say it's even better than Illmatic. It has amazing battle rhymes (313 and Open Mic) but also great story telling (Backstabber) some songs with good messages (Never 2 Far and It's OK), probably one of the best love songs if not THE best (Searchin) and kind of a opposite track of serachin but equally as dope (Jealousy Woes II) and we can't forget THE best track with BRILLAINT battlerap and braggadicio rhymes (Infinite), also it had some dope guests, sick multis, and Em's flow is on point for ever beat. The only thing wrong wiht the cd is the last guy on the song Maxine but Eminem kills it on that song just like he does every song and Tonight to just because it didn't really stay on a topic but still had amazing lyrics.. some people might argue that the reason it's not a 10/10 is because of the beats and production but in my opinion the beats and production are PERFECT for this type of cd when you listen to it you know you are listening to an underground classic and that's exactly what Infinite is CLASSIC!

10/10

I like it because of the raw street feeling, really underground sound (prolly due to poor mastering ) but some beats are straight wack. And Eminem's style isn't so developed yet, on some songs he sounds and rhymes quite generic. A solid 7/10.

LOL, he wasn't Slim Shady at that phase.

Great album, nice to see it get props from the thread starter.

I give it a solid 9 out of 10. Second best album from Em

'Infinite', 'Tonight', 'Never Too Far' and 'Searchin' get constant play in my stereo

He Murders every track and i think production fits well with mood.
'It's Okay' stands out 4 me, u can hear his pain and frustration.

It's a solid album but so many people calling it a classic or his best work is just looking for attention.

7.5/10
