I think as an Eminem fan and as a hip-hop fan in general, there is a certain level of genius that I have come to expect from this man. If the first half dozen listens of "We Made You" are any indication, the first single from Relapse (what was "Crack A Bottle"? Was it really 50 Cent's?) is missing it.
I guess I should just be happy that this isn't another moody track about his daughter. Em is really going back to basics on Relapse, channeling bits and pieces from the Slim Shady EP and bigger chunks from his sourly disappointing Encore. At the end of the day, "We Made You," or incognito single "Crack A Bottle" never resonate the way the rest of his endlessly fascinating catalog does.
