  • Summary: Rob Cavallo produced the album with Kid Rock.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 12
  2. Negative: 1 out of 12
  1. His good-hearted faith in rock & roll delivers a powerful kick. As he well knows--and Rock N Roll Jesus proves--roaring guitars, truckloads of attitude and an unquenchable lust for life make up for a multitude of sins.
  2. We may be more entertained at times by Rock's extramusical affairs, but the "Devil" should still be given his due as a clever and creative musical force.
  3. There is a fairly catholic array of influences here: Smile-provoking nostalgiafest 'All Summer Long' lifts elements from both 'Werewolves of London' and 'Sweet Home Alabama.' But the mediocre 'New Orleans' makes hard work of celebrating Big Easy blues.
  4. Convinced he's some kind of rock revivalist, he's more Bob Seger, Skynyrd and Hank Jr. than anything else here. That works in his favour for most of the album, aside from a few misses like the generically foot-stompin' 'So Hot' and the gospel-infused singalong 'Don't Tell Me U Love Me.'

    Mostly it looks like there's a new kid in town. [Dec 2007, p.98]
  6. 60
    Rumours of emotional maturity are exaggerated...but the reflective moments are best. [Dec 2007, p.98]
  7. A willfully dumb concoction of crotch-grabbing Southern rock workouts and boneheaded strip-joint anthems. [Dec 2007, p.121]

    Best Rock Cd ever recorded since the seventies. Kid Rock is a Rock, Hip Hop,Country, Metal, Blues, and Soul God. There is not a musician alive that can touch this. Thank You Kid for keeping music REAL!!! Expand

    Finally, a rock album that just goes balls to the wall having fun. Yes, it has its problematic moments -- but my gosh, you can almost see a smile on his face as he goes through half of these songs. Any other year, this album might rate a 7 or 8 -- but this year it coasts to a 9 for me. What a joy-filled relief. Expand

    Hopefully Kid will spend some of his money on therapy. He is in definite need. This album is all about his rage and not about music. I for one hope that the money I spent on his album allows him to get the help he needs to get beyond being dumped. Expand
