I'm Not Afraid.

Say what you will about eminem. Whether you cut through the controversy, accept it as a part of the package, or think it's ruining what's important... he is one of the most universally successful and acclaimed alive today.
Relapse was met with mixed critique. Only the hardcore fans held right on. Most dropped off and saw it as little less than blasphemy.
Recovery, an album originally intended to be called 'Relapse 2' - a sequel to Relapse is due out June 22nd. Eminems newest single 'Not Sfraid' hit the airwaves today and is making massive waves, especially amongst the Relapse non - devotees.
"And to the fans, I’ll never let you down again, I’m back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let’s be honest, that last Relapse CD was “ehhhh”
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain’t going back to that now
All I’m tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
Cause I ain’t playin’ around"
Anyone who believed, like Eminem himself apparently does, that relapse was sub - standard... Give 'Not afraid' a listen (youtube it) - it's an intensely powerful ballad, and a testament to the shimmer of hope that 'Beautiful' (from Relapse) gave those of us who want the Marshall we know and love back on the scene.

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".
Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine.
