I think it was done because it is perfectly acceptable to be afraid of Suge Knight.
Actually, it's not hard to figure out who he is talking about, so maybe he was afraid of getting sued or something?
As far as the rest of the album goes, I like the "Just Lose It" video, but the song is trash. I sampled the rest of the songs on iTunes yesterday, and I'm suprised to say that I didnt hear anything I liked. I was REALLY looking forward to this album too. Color me disappointed :(
Originally posted by BWT Seven you said that Spend some time was like his 21 questions, were you serious? It just sounds like a bunch of angry guys bitching about the girls they lost. Any song with the lyric "I never would have thought I would see you out of control even though my penis was deep down in your hole.." Have you ever listened to Smile? Its a nice popish track. Spend some time comes off very dark and sad.
It is like Smile and 21 Questions as it will get radio play and the females will dig it. I have seen that song on quite a few female pages already. Women liked Superman and that had to be the most misogynist song ever. One of my fave Em tracks actually.

Originally posted by BWT To make that worst he then goes back to two more of his old crutches: His wife (who gets two tracks about her Crazy In Love and Mockingbird) and I just feel like I have heard everything already before.
I disagree. 'Mockingbird' is far and away the best song on the whole album. It actually has some content beyond him dissing people in poor fashion and I would almost consider it a better version of 'Haile's Song' from The Eminem Show. He actually shows some insight as well as using a great multi-sylable storytelling flow (two things he used to be the best at). And he doesn't diss Kim at all, in fact it's as though he's apologizing for *his* misdeeds as a parent. As far as 'Crazy In Love' though (and essentially the rest of the album), now *that* is garbage.
And the reason he doesn't outright mention Suge is because if you look at the lyrics LionJeetSingh posted, for him (Eminem) to drop Suge's name there would be to totally contradict what he's saying.

(edited by Jericholic53 on 14.11.04 1938) it says so right here in the wcw handbook!
I don't know how Elbow escaped my notice until this album, but they did (mind, I've now explored their back catalog too). This is one of those rare albums that I pull out the, "if you like music, you'll like this," line.
