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 shtick—deflating celebrity egos with barbed wisecracks—and 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? Posted by Stephen Silver at November 29, 2004 01:16 AM

I'm slightly upset that this music critic didn't mention my Eminem parody that proves that I have the inherent rhyme bustin' talent that may be the stuff of a future legend.
