Kid Rock's latest album, the much-anticipated follow up to his 4X-platinum Cocky, will prove once again that Detroit's kingpin is here to stay. His last outing, Cocky, remained on the Billboard charts for 88 weeks after arriving in stores, while at the same time Devil Without A Cause was getting certified 11 times platinum. Supported by a world tour and Kid Rock's solid track record of three consecutive multi-platinum albums, the highly awaited new collection is set to Rock the world.
Is Kid Rock about to drop the first half of his stage moniker? Some alarmingly mature cuts on his sixth album, addressing the woes of single parenthood ("Single Dad") and painful separations ("Cold and Empty," a cover of Bob Seger's "Hard Night For Sarah"), might suggest so. But that's only part of the story. As Rock reiterates on "Son of Detroit," a butt-kicking revamp of David Allan Coe's "Son of the South," "I like country, soul, rock and roll, and I love me some hip-hop." Yet compared to his previous work, that last flavor takes a back seat to the other three: Hank Williams, Jr. drops by for the swaggering "Cadillac Pussy," Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" gets a gritty nu-metal update, and ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd receive shout outs. Have no fear, fans--even as he reconciles having a child with acting like one, the Kid still lives to rock. --Kurt B. Reighley

Several months afterwards, while bumming out that Creed had broken up, I purchased "Devil W/O a Cause" and this CD, also. I must say I wasn't disappointed.
This self-titled CD is full of Stones "Exile on Main Street" type rockers, such as "Rock and Roll Pain Train," "Rock and Roll," and a 70's-ish Rod Stewart sound-alike ("Cadillac P***y").
Kid pulls out the stops on the grunge, hung-over, drug abusing ear-splitter "Jackson, Mississippi" and produces another bragadoccio rap song on "Intro." These are the most in-your-face, modern style of rap and rock songs on the CD.
But it's his softer songs that are the most enjoyable. He bares his soul on "Cold and Empty" and "I Am." And the bonus song, co-written by country music outlaw and living legend, David Allan Coe, "Single Father" is a classic. It is minimalist in style with only drums and organ.
Kid also covers Bad Company's "Feel Like Making Love" with a cool arrangement but his cover of Coe's "Son of the South" could've done with a new arrangement somehow. He should have made the guitars heavier or perhaps included some kind of rap in the middle (He changed the title to "Son of Detroit.")
I must say that is you are pushing 40 and want to hear something modern that hearkens back to the 70's classic rock sounds, such as old Stones, Allman Brothers, Rod Stewart, and even my favorite country singer, David Allan Coe, this is definitely the CD to buy.
If you are a Kid Rock/Limp Bizkit fan, you probably won't like this one....unless you like the aforementioned bands.
Gone for the most part is the hip-hop that had become Rock's stock in trade, although the braggadocio that is so prevalent in that genre is still very much intact. Once coming off as Vanilla Ice from the trailer park, Rock now sounds like he's taking more influence from the likes of Bob Seger and Lynyrd Skynyrd - the problem is, it seems more like he actually wants to become Bob Seger rather than just take influence from him. The album is bereft of original ideas, as indicated by "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Cold And Empty", and "Son Of Detroit". Much of the album also tends to drag, due to Kid Rock revealing his sensitive side to us way too frequently - you can't go around proclaiming yourself to be the "American Bad Ass" while wearing your heart on your sleeve all the time, it just doesn't work that way. That being said, you can expect several attempts to cash in with plenty of "Picture" clones here and there. The album's one bright point is "Jackson, Mississippi", which has a mellow, almost forlorn vibe during the verse and a sludgy, rocking chorus - this song would have been at home on one of Corrosion Of Conformity's last few albums.
In summary: Kid Rock attempts to reinvent himself, with mixed results. The new direction hints that Kid Rock might be taking some risks, but when you hear the finished product you know that's not to be - for the most part he plays it way too safe on this album.
This time around, he deals with some very serious issues such as depression ("Jackson, Mississippi"), painful breakups ("Cold & Empty") and single parenthood ("Single Father") among other things. Staying true to the 'Rock' part of his name, Kid shakes the house down on a revamp of David Allen Coe's "Son of the South" titled "Son of Detroit". One thing missing on this disc, however, is Kid's ability to work hip-hop into the mix. His hip-hop styles have faded to nearly none on this disc, with the exception of the "Intro" (mysteriously placed at #7 on the disc) and the old-school "Black Bob". Without hip-hop, though, that doesn't mean that the set is boring. The shout-it-out-loud vibe of "Cadallac *****" and the feet-stomping "Hillbilly Stomp" both make up well for the lost material. As well, the slower side comes out on such ballads as "A Hard Night For Sarah", "I Am" and "Do It For You".Read more ›

This is by far the best Kid Rock CD out there. He proves again just how versatile of an artist he is, combining Country, Rock, Hip hop, and Soul in one great boiling pot of a CD. Read morePublished on July 8 2004 by Althea

This is a GREAT CD. Although it is a departure from Kid Rock's previous hard rock/rap style, this CD illustrates the true depth and range of his talent as a musician. Read morePublished on July 2 2004
