Marshall Mathers LP is epic. Best he's ever done.

I honestly hold his 2002 follow up The Eminem Show as his finest piece of work, both from a production and content viewpoint. I found that his most heartfelt lyrics were present on that album and it was his most "mature". Most people will disagree with me, but I think The Eminem Show is the best place to start for beginners, especially if they're not really into the shock value present on his earlier (and unfortunately) later albums.
Yeah I should have been a little more descriptive with my post. I agree with LoathsomePete on some things. I will be honest with you, Eminem's lyrics are 'immature' and can become annoying and at times really aren't funny anymore. I enjoy the first two SS and MM LP's the most out of his word, Eminem Show is a good release also. Other than those two albums he is really hit or miss in my opinion and sadly..a lot more miss than hit. He has songs strung out amounts his entire career that are good songs, but albums wise he is a really inconsistent artist.

Lemme clear this up because it isn't very clear. His first two are immature, as Pete said, then towards the middle of his career some of his lyrics took a more mature route. I do remember a few songs on Encore being kinda immature, 'A** Like That' is the one that stands out the most, but for the most part his lyrics were much better on The Eminem Show and Encore both.

Either way, I feel like The first four are all albums you should listen to. Really all just depends on what you're looking for.

His new album is pretty good, in my honest opinion.
I like it better than Relapse, and I was a pretty big fan of that album, as well.

Not many agree with me, and that's OK, but Eminem was and is the best the genre has ever seen.

Rap was a music form built on rage;originally, it was blacks raging against police brutality and racism and poverty--Eminem's anger was unmatched in its fury and its forcefulness. We were all FORCED to acknowlege him because of how frightening and dangerous he seemed to everybody. Not many have been able to pull that off, either before or since. I remember my grandma hiding "the Marshall Mathers L.P." from me when I was 10 years old because she was afraid that I'd turn into a nihilistic *******. She was right, but I remember the general sense of fear he instilled in parents around the country.

Eminem to me, is a fairly good rap artist. There are artists that I much prefer but as far as rappers in the mainstream go, he is one of the best. If not the best.

Well i finally got Relapse, and cant help but feeling a little disappointed. He seems to have lost the ability to right the funny/violent lyrics as well as he did on the his first few albums.
Not Afraid, Going through Changes and Love the Way you lie are the only tracks that have any replay value for me of the album.

I think Eminem hits curtain emotions with a lot of people regardless of what album
