Kracker's debut album, Double Wide, basically presented him as a kinder, gentler Kid Rock - "comin' straight at ya from the Detroit trailer park, y'all", but less likely to raise hell, and you could take him home to meet your mother. That album did have a ubiquitous hit in "Follow Me" (which differed greatly from the rest of DW) and, not surprisingly, Kracker follows in the grand tradition of other lifeless corporate pop acts (Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth) and desperately tries to duplicate the sound of his past hit on the follow-up, No Stranger To Shame.
This album plants Kracker squarely in the realm of adult contemporary - everything here is tailor-made for the "listen at work" stations, but there is nothing redeeming at all about any of the songs here. Kracker had to resort to releasing a cover ("Drift Away") in a bid for radio play - it worked for him, but the fact that Dobie Gray sings circles around him casts a dark shadow on Kracker ... it was obvious that he couldn't carry the song on his own. If you like music that plays it safe, there's plenty for you to chew on here, but nothing artistically relevant or profound to speak of, and Kracker's trite lyrics and toneless voice certainly doesn't help any.Read more ›

I HIGHLY Recomend this cd to any music lover of any kind. This cd has something for everyone. #1 and #12 are rapish, #2-#11 are country and every song as some mix of rock. VERY VERY GOOD!
62 used cd's starting at $4.28. He will be selling stuff in the street in no time.
Not even good enough to hit the bargain bin as he goes down.
If you know someone that likes him, RUN!!! don't walk away. Buy this cd if you spent way too much money on crap speakers for your car. At least they will distort and you don't have to listen to this.
Really good stuff if you listen to morons and roll up your windows if you just happen to accidentally end up in the "hood".
He's just so talented, love his voice. Read more
