Eminem is the definition of a soul baring artist. However, that quality was overlooked in the negative reaction to Em's accents on Relapse. But "Deja Vu" is an exceptional song, one of his finest works ever. It's a harrowing song, one that highlights many of Em's core skills—his knack for complicated, half-sung hooks, his powerful lyrics, and his willingness to reveal every last detail.
And "Deja Vu" is a song all about details, right down to the Three Musketeers bar he falls asleep eating, the Cowboys and Buccaneers game he watches, and the hydrocodone he hides inside his pornos. Em always gave up the intimate details of his life, but hearing him talk about the depths of addiction was something new. Like Yogi Berra said, "It was like déjà vu, all over again." —Insanul Ahmed
