Worst Eminem Albums

The Top Ten

1 Encore

Why is Relapse #2? That album is FANTASTIC! Best Eminem album! Encore on the other hand is awful. My First Single is HORRIBLE! Some of the other ones are bad too. Like Toy Soldiers and Mockingbird are great songs though.

This album was such a failure and it makes me sad because Eminem is (for me at least) the most creative music artist and this album lacked creativity. It was meant to be the end of The Eminem Show but that was more wishful thinking.

Even though this album was without a doubt his worst, he had some phenomenal songs on it like Like Toy Soldiers, Mosh, and Never Enough - DaLizts

I love Like Toy Soldiers, Mockingbird, Never Enough, Rain Man, Puke, Mosh and Encore. The rest aren't that great though.

2 Relapse

This is actually my favorite Eminem album. Also includes my favorite Eminem song which is old times sake.

I made a remix for Best Eminem Albums and said it was his worst album barring Curtain Call, but I don't hate it as much. Still, it is not a good album. The accents are annoying, but Beautiful and Same Song and Dance are awesome. The other tracks are mediocre at best, to trash at worst. - WonkeyDude98

What? #2?! So basically what this is telling me is that Old Times Sake, Beautiful, Medicine Ball, Insane, Deja Vu, Crack A Bottle, Underground, Same Song and Dance, Stay Wide Awake, My Mom, Must Be The Ganja, and Bagpipes From Baghdad are bad songs? (Hello and 3am are garbage) Did you forget to listen to those songs because if you did you're seriously missing out.

Why do people consider this album to be better than Encore? Unlike this album, Encore had some songs that are considered to be one of his all time best, while Relapse has songs that I found forgettable and mediocre. And as for the other songs on Encore, they at least have different focuses on them, unlike in Relapse, there would an 80% chance of him talking about killing and raping bitches. I wouldn't consider this to be a terrible album, but I never thought this was ever his best work when I listened to it.

Although I really liked Underground.

3 Recovery

Didn't bother to listen to all of MMLP2 but this album: too many cheesy punchlines (the monopoly board/on top of my game line on No Love, the Lydia in Not Afraid, etc.) also too many weak lyrics. Em also went from guest appearances including 50 and Dre to Rihanna and Lil Wayne. What? Too many poppy songs. Even when Encore had "bad" songs, like Rain Man, it still kept your attention. This is Em's most boring album in my opinion. Recovery is still an okay album, I guess, just nowhere near the level of his first five albums.

Its his best album - lazypants

Not enough Slim Shady.

I honestly think this was a downgrade from Relapse (I loved Relapse). Almost no Slim Shady and a bunch of poppy or annoying beats. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of great songs like No Love (one of my favourites), Cold Wind Blows, Almost Famous and Not Afraid (poppy but powerful). Some of the rest were good but some were not that good. Going Through Changes is basically a massive downgrade from Deja Vu, Talking 2 Myself has some cringey lines, LTWYL is WAY too mainstream and Untitled is extremely unnecessary. I also hate how he basically says Relapse sucks on Talking 2 Myself although it’s not as good as a lot of the songs on Relapse (Same with Not Afraid but tha5 one is better). It’s just an ok album.

4 The Marshall Mathers LP 2

There is so much singing. Why so many featured female singers. When's the last time Em rapped the chorus of a song?

Mate, Eminem can't be the same in albums. Plus, you only looked at the album titles that features female singers without listening and commented. - Mumbizz01

It's a good album! Stop slamming it

What happened to his older songs when there WASN'T Rihanna, P! nk, or any other terrible singers? - spiderskull98

It's my second fave after MMLP1 ❤️
I absolutely love this album so much!

5 Curtain Call: The Hits

Part from FACK, this has some of Em's greatest songs:
The way I am
My name is
Sing for the moment
Shake that
Without me
The real slim shady
When I'm gone
And most importantly, Loose Yourself

Why people would think this album sucks is beyond me

FACK is so disturbing and disgusting, I almost puked.

Take off all the other songs. You have FACK, Shake That and When I'm gone. WIG is mediocre. Shake That was lame and FACK is the worst rap song if all time. - AlphaQ

6 Revival

Hell no this album is great to be honest! Encore is his worst album but at least he wasn't on drugs when he recorded this album so yeah.

Thanks this album ain't on number two! It's an alright album to be honest, It's not his best album but its still enjoyable though. - Jochoa235

The only reason this isn't #1 is because it just came out - venomouskillingmachine

This album was kind of a disappointment. Huge downgrade in lyrics, not amazing production and too much pop. We want to hear Eminem not someone who hops on what’s popular. Some of the tracks were actually pretty good like Castle, Arose, River, Believe, Offended and Framed. And for some reason I think Remind Me and Chloraseptic are not that bad but not really great. Unfortunately there were some awful tracks. Untouchable had trash production and bad lines and was a horrible single, Bad a Husband is so boring, Tragic Endings is just not fun to listen to, In Your Head as a useless sample and Heat is one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard with awful lines, crappy production and a stupid sample. The rest are mediocre. Not that great of an album.

9 The Marshall Mathers LP

Are you kidding me? The Marshall Mathers LP is one of the best albums in the history of hip hop.

Think about it, there are only 8 Eminem albums, this is number 6. So that means this is the 3rd best according to this list. So don't be fooled by this list.

I was disturbed the first time I heard these songs.

The best by far ❤️
