Interesting comparison. Funnily enough I read an interview with Randy Newman recently and he said that lyrically, he felt quite a lot of affinity with Eminem as they both had a tendancy to write from the point of view of thoroughly reprehensible, bigoted characters in the first person without making any explicit moral comment on them.

I actually enjoyed "8 Mile" far more than I thought I would and find some of Eminem's lyrics interesting, but his music (IMHO, of course) sucks. Give me El-P any day.
