Music Critic Quote of the Week

“Eminem’s wisecracking, scatological Slim Shady persona resurfaces for the entire middle portion of the album, but that ends around “Ass Like That,” a track so muddled that it’s hard to tell whether it’s a song-length putdown of Triumph The Insult Comic Dog or an elaborate backhanded homage. The song backfires spectacularly, because Eminem and Triumph essentially share the same shtickdeflating celebrity egos with barbed wisecracksand because at this point, Triumph is a lot funnier and more pointed in his putdowns than his human counterpart.”

-Nathan Rabin, reviewing the “Encore” album in the Onion AV Club. Where’s Triumph’s Grammy?
