New Eminem

Remember when I said I liked the new, more passionate Eminem? Well his latest released track is pretty much the opposite, sounding like it was straight off Relapse.

The beat is really simple, nothing overly complicated. Same drum beat the entire time with I think I counted 6 total chords from the synthed orchestra. Again this leaves a lot of room for Eminem to fool around with his syllable emphasis.

The main thing I liked about this song is it's the first one I've ever heard with B.O.B where he wasn't completely annoying or terrible. Lets be frank, this guy in the past hasn't really shown that he is a good rapper. Yeah it's a style that is different from others (such as Drakes) however his overall popularity should be a reflection of how good it actually it, which is not very.

But yeah, in this track, he killed it. His best verse of his career imo, mainly because he didn't try his crappy random overemphasis of words and changing pitch like an excited 12 year old. Still nothing compared to Eminem, but amazing compared to his career.

All in all, decent track, but there are others I would much rather listen too, even off Relapse itself.

Thoughts and comments appreciated

Browsing around youtube tonight, here is another track from EvoloutionOfTrance he put out a few weeks ago.
After a hectic weekend and a stressful few weeks to come, the serenity and calming effect of this one is really nice. Only complaint really is that it's so short.

Hey guys, big night tonight.

I saw a couple pretty amazing bands the past couple nights that I want to get the word out about. The 2 main ones being the Sheep Dogs and Harlan Pepper. I know the Sheep Dogs already have a small following going and there was actually talk of them possibly getting on the cover of Rolling Stone sometime in the near future.
Harlan Pepper are a small group of teenagers but man these guys are talented, great voices and good songwriting ability.

So yeah, I'll be talking more about these guys and a couple more this week as well as what goes on tonight.

Also to the comment on the last post JunoFest is a 2 day music festival around the city of Toronto leading up to the Juno's which happen tonight. It was something like 105 total concerts over a 2 night period and you could get an all access wristband for $30 which is pretty decent when you consider that some really big acts were playing (such as Billy Talent on friday night at the Opera House).

Did anyone in Toronto see any good concerts the past couple nights?

Morning guys,

Just want to ask you to please excuse my absence this weekend. I'm going to be working at a couple of different venues for the festivals leading up to the main Juno night. If I see anything awesome I'll try to snap a few photos to throw up. Hope you all have a good one and see you next week.

I light of last nights review, I felt like cheering myself up

This is a unicorn, as you can see I am very artistic.

I know, I know what am I still doing in school when I can produce works that will go down in history with the likes of Michelangelo, Picasso and Botticelli.

You don't have to say anything, just sit back and bask in my greatness.
