There have been rumblings of a surprise Eminem album for a couple of months.
It happened last night, with the drop of Em's 11th album Music To Be Murdered By.
It continues a late-career run of three albums in a little more than three years for Shady. While the first, Revival, wasn't well-received the second, Kamikaze, was.
So far, Music To Be Murdered By is being received more like Kamikaze than like Revival. Check some of the reactions.

I wonder if all the Ariana Grande stans tweeting #EminemIsOverParty realise that the reason they’re even called Stans is because of that Eminem song?— Thomas (@blickbuster) January 17, 2020
Wow. Eminem really went all out spreading the message to use your voice if you don’t like what’s happening in America. Great track with an amazing message. Also shoutout to @Royceda59 for the production. The beat fits perfectly with the mood and message of the song pic.twitter.com/cN4CqbyyES— Baur (@BaurPower18) January 17, 2020
Super blown away by this album. I honestly never saw this coming from Em at this stage. He delivered with perfection. Bouncy and dope.— Ayman Ameen (@A_sleemy) January 17, 2020
