Ever since this window has closed on Eminem, he's been trying to recapture the lightning trapped in a bottle. Between 1999 he released the SSLP, MMLP and the Eminem Show. 2004 brought Encore, 2005 brought Curtain Call. When Eminem did Relapse and Recovery, while he was recording the music together, in an interview before Relapse's drop date he said that those two albums were "like the Marshall Mathers LP and the Slim Shady LP". Then he released the MMLP2 in 2013 with the same title as MMLP 1, and now he's dropping new Stan and 8 Mile merchandise and Revival's gonna be heavily influenced by Stan and previous hits it seems.
I'm not saying this 1999-2002 window wasn't good, he was excellent, I just wish he could try something that doesn't have to be connected to his old stuff, the new stuff could stand on its own.
