  2. 7.0 |   Punk News

    Eminem is still an extremely talented rapper, even if the subject matter grows tiresome at times

  3. 6.7 |   Consequence Of Sound

    It's as though the hip-hop icon is figuring out from scratch how to be compelling again

  4. 6.0 |   Exclaim

    We know Eminem is an incredible lyricist. We know he has punch lines that can pierce your mind and make you laugh. But what we don't know is whether or not he has anything real to say, and to his detriment, Music to Be Murdered By puts that in the spotlight

  5. 6.0 |   All Music

    After some dismally bad albums, the rap legend redeems himself somewhat with a solid collection of technical prowess and improved production

  7. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Another surprise album drop finds the rapper on stylish form, even as he scatters scorn wide – at young rappers, #MeToo sensibilities – and identifies with deadly outsiders

  8. 6.0 |   NME

    Veers between maturity and adolescent outbursts, between clumsy pop commercialism and something close to outsider art. If he sometimes sounds stuck in the past, Eminem also proves himself capable of growth

    Being offended at this stage just distracts from the state of his talent

  10. 6.0 |   XS Noize

    The majority of these songs are instantly forgettable with similar and familiar beats and tempo Eminem has recycled from his previous LP’s. Whilst his ability as a world-class rapper has been repeatedly demonstrated and continues to be demonstrated here; the subject matter of his lyrics is over-familiar

  11. 6.0 |   music OMH

    Music To Be Murdered By succumbs to temptation a few times, with a pop concession here and a lacklustre verse there, but it’s the clearest sign yet that there’s a future for Eminem as well as a legacy

  12. 5.5 |   Pitchfork

    It is not, strictly speaking, a good record — Eminem hasn’t made one of those in a decade — but his latest boasts enough technical command and generates just enough arresting ideas to hold your attention

  13. 4.6 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    A semi-focused surprise album that emits indifference, if nothing else

  14. 4.0 |   The Independent

    Rapper's bitter diatribes show he is incapable of moving on
