The new album Recovery, by Eminem, is all about starting over; creating a new beginning. He tells about his struggles with alcohol, drugs and family. Like in his song “Cinderella Man,” he expresses how in his life went through many struggles with family relationships and hard times in his life with little money. Through his rapping he tells what rough patches he dealt with, such as addiction to drugs and alchol, and how that led to his anger and hurt. This gave me some what of a reality check, because I realized some people have it a lot worse off and this album really makes me appreciate what I still have in my own life. This CD was enjoyable to listen to even though it is a bit vulgur for my taste. Overall this new album was intense, but very real at the same time.
