  • Summary: The sixth album for the Detroit rocker is more party-rock than rap-metal, although some hip-hop elements are retained from previous outings. Included is a cover of "Feel Like Makin' Love."
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. Song for song, this is better-written and harder-rocking than Cocky.
  2. Kid chills out here, embracing southern jams, country music and a whole lot of heart.
  3. It's one of the best hard-rock CDs you'll hear this year, carrying on the shitkicking tradition of Hank Williams Jr., ZZ Top, Guns n' Roses and Bad Company.
  4. Rock's response is to ease off the hip hop and get back to the '70s, and it works. [Apr 2004, p.114]
  5. Ironically, the more Rock expresses his true self, the more generic he sounds. [28 Nov 2003, p.123]
  6. 40
    With this kind of self-pity, Kid Rock was better off staying shallow. [Jan 2004, p.110]
  7. Over-sentimental country-rock posing, limp rapping, and turgid AOR classic rock are only where this young man gets started.

    This album is #$%&* awesome!! I liked Kid even back in the straight-up hip-hop days but hip-hop has become a boring cliche these days. Time to rock out again! Expand
