Eminem’s ninth studio album, Revival,leaked two days ahead of schedule and Twitter already has a plethora of opinions pouring in on the new effort. From comments ranging from “it’s fucking lit” to “it’s fucking awful,” reactions to the project have been overwhelmingly mixed.

Lead singles “Walk On Water” featuring Beyoncé and “Untouchable” yielded similar responses. As Slim Shady discussed in a recent episode of Rick Rubin’s podcast Broken Record, “Walk On Water” addresses the immense pressure he feels to deliver perfection every time he opens his mouth.

“It’s the curse of the standard/ That the first of the Mathers disc set/ Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet/ Will this step just be another misstep/ To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect, I’ve garnered?/ The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless,” he spits on the aforementioned “Walk On Water.”

Judging by the initial response, Em is still navigating some choppy waters and fans will either ride with him or abandon ship altogether.

Revival is officially scheduled for a Friday (December 15) arrival.
