Upon first listen, "On Fire" sounds like Em effing around in the studio (hell, he even goes so far as saying, "I just wrote a bullshit hook in between two long-ass verses"). And maybe he is just goofin' off, but Eminem's B-game is still enough to take out most of the league. In fact, the looseness brings out plenty of fun stuff like "Flows tighter/Hot-headed as Ghost Rider/Cold-hearted as Spider-Man throwin' a spider in the snow," as well as smarmy ad-libs like, "I'm so fuckin' sick I got ambulances pullin' me over and shit." The only thing fully serious here is the production, which resembles an operatic exorcism.
