Eminem | The Slim Shady LP (1999)

You’re telling me to be positive. How am I supposed to be positive when I don’t see shit positive?
— Eminem

That line pretty much sums up this album from Eminem. He writes poetry that digs deep into his rough experiences and fantasies of drugs, alcohol, sexuality, violence, and poverty. Not pleasant to listen to, but intriguing. The question: Are the lyrics interesting because listening is like watching a traffic accident or because it challenges our impressions of society? I don't know the answer.
