Curtain Call. It reminds me of my son and his pal, @10 years old. We took them to Cornwall on holiday and they played it non stop. Whenever "Without Me" is played we all still nod our heads to the chorus...."It'd be so empty without me Now this looks like a job for me so everybody just follow me 'Cause we need a little controversy 'Cause it feels so empty without me". Happy daze.
Not a big fan of his but my son, who is, stayed with me some time ago and i was 'force fed' Eminem. (He told me it was in retaliation for force-feeding him Zep, Queen, Floyd and Sabbath as he grew up). Some of his songs have quite profound lyrics, none more so, imho, than 'Cleanin' Out My Closet' which, i believe was on the 'The Eminem Show' album. So i'd most likely go for that one.
I think there must have been different versions of some of these albums because mine had the same cover as the Eminem Show and many of the same tracks but also had some tracks such a Stan off the previous album. So after looking at the tracklists I'm not sure which is best now- but defintely the earlier ones. Whilst he has been influential I don't think he's moved on much in 20 years
