Eminem, Revival | Critics Weigh In
The critics have weighed in on Revival, the ninth studio album by legendary rapper Eminem. The results are a mixed-bag at best.
The reviews are in on Revival, the semi-surprising, late 2017 album by Eminem. Below is what was stated in the ‘Final Thoughts’ section of The Musical Hype review of the product:
Ultimately, Eminem returns in top-notch form on Revival. Throughout its course, he tackles numerous topics including politics, racism, and father-/husband-hood. Keeping things interesting, he assembles a star-studded cast and at times, does unique, compelling things with his flow and rhymes. The album is too long, but the quality is indisputable.
Ultimately, at our hands, Revival was awarded a respectable 3 ½ out of 5 stars rating. Selected gems for the project included pre-release singles “Walk on Water” and “Untouchable”, as well as the likes of “Chloraseptic,” “Like Home,” “Framed,” “Offended,” “Castle,” and “Arose.” Most critics didn’t agree with our assessment. Our 3 ½ star assessment converts to a Metacritic metascore of 70 (where “5 stars” = 100, “4 ½ stars” = 90, “4 stars” = 80, etc.). The overall aggregate for the project, comprised of 21 professional reviews, is a mere 51.
