Product Description

Rock Is Back. After 22 million records sold in the US and a three year hiatus, Kid Rock is back with the brand new album 'Rock N Roll Jesus'. Kid Rock hustled in the Detroit underground for over ten years before he burst into the mainstream in 1999 with the timeless rock anthem "Bawitdaba." Other hits like "Cowboy" and "American Bad A**" followed while ballads like his "Picture" duet with Sheryl Crow and "Only God Knows Why" helped to propel him forward as one of the greatest artists of our time. His latest offering Rock N Roll Jesus is no exception, running the gamut from hard rock to hip-hop to country and soul. Of the album, which Rock co-produced with Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Goo Goo Dolls, My Chemical Romance), he says: "I am proud of every single song on this record. It works from start to finish."

The History of Rock [EXPLICIT LYRICS]

Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast [EXPLICIT LYRICS]

Kid Rock maintains a remarkable propensity for wearing his contradictions on his sleeve, and more than anything he's previously released, Rock n Roll Jesus finds fuel in unresolved opposites. Is he a hard-core chauvinist ("Half Your Age") or a would-be gentlemen ("When U Love Someone")? Is he a God-fearing everyman ("Blue Jeans and a Rosary") or a bohemian hero ("So Hott")? These questions are nothing new, even if the album at hand takes them to freshly delirious extremes. Ever since he first began shedding his rap/rock posture to be the next Ted Nugent, Kid Rock has constructed his public persona out of full-frontal ambivalence: race, class, sex, religion, money, whatever it takes. This album's bookends--the title song and "bonus" track, "Lowlife (Living the Highlife)"--demonstrate all this irreconcilable nonsense in no uncertain terms, but all his polar wobbling is at least stabilized by a firm commitment to southern-styled rock, tinged at times with gospel, blues, a lingering need to rap ("Sugar"), and a rare, soul-fed instrumental jambalaya ("New Orleans"). In the end, Kid Rock may be a remarkable self-promoter, but a musical Messiah he is not. --Jason Kirk

People en Español
Pareciera que Kid Rock está madurando, en Rock and Roll Jesus ha dejado atrás al típico rockero que se conformaba con escandalizar, y se ha atrevido a navegar las aguas de otros géneros como el country y el blues en canciones como "New Orleans" y "All Summer Rock," además Rock se ha olvidado del hip-hop, hoy denuncia la muerte absurda de soldados en Irak y el racismo. Pero no crea que el músico se ha convertido precisamente en un santo, el disco incluye canciones poderosas como "So Hutt" que es puro rock o "Half Your Age" en la que no es secreto que vuelca todas sus frustraciones por haber perdido a Pamela Anderson. En la canción él dice que ahora tiene una chica más joven y más hot. En suma Rock and Roll Jesus es un material mucho más maduro, pero si quiere escuchar al Kid Rock escandaloso y despreocupado de antes quizá no sea buena idea comprarlo. Por el contrario si le gusta el hard rock de los años 70 y el country, este es un álbum que le gustará. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

Kid Rock's new album isn't as revolutionary as the artist and title proclaim; yet it IS rather pleasing, and is indeed a bit maturer than much of Rock's previous work. The only hints of the rock/rap that will haunt him 'til the day he dies are found in "Sugar" and "Don't Tell Me U Love Me"--and even then, both songs stand testiment to the fact that Rock doesn't distinguish between musical boundaries. You have to respect him for that, if nothing else.

The album's strength, like it's two immediate predessecors, lies in its southern rock backbone. Nowhere is this more clear than on "All Summer Long," a melodical melding of Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" and Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" (the opening riff makes me wish Rock would record "Werewolves;" honestly, he would tear that song up--in a good way). The country blues of "New Orleans" (a co-write with the one and only David Allan Coe) is another joyous sing-along, and one of Rock's most enjoyable tunes in a long time. "Amen" gets a bit too serious, but it is still enjoyable; naturally, Rock makes controversial declarations like "God d*** it, I'm afraid to send my kids to church" and "Our nation's race relations got me feelin' guilty for bein' white." The stone-cold country of "Half Your Age" helps convey the songs hilarious--and scathing--message. "Blue Jeans and a Rosary" touches upon gospel vibes, as does the previously-mentioned "Amen." Even the title track, though lyrically unoriginal, is catchy and listenable.

To me, this is Kid Rock's third record. I know, he had a career before COCKY; but here we see a man evolving musically and lyrically. While he still isn't at the creative high he insists he is, Kid Rock has managed to transcend genres, and to create some truly memorable music.

I am a 50 year old white woman and Rock & Roll Jesus has made a convert out of me. Actually, it was his duet with Sheryl Crow on "Picture" awhile ago and "All Summer Long" finalized the deal. "New Orleans" and "Blue Jeans and a Rosary" are also favorites. I always thought of this fellow Michigan boy as a long-haired, screaming, nasty, foul-mouthed white rapster. I tended towards the John Mellencamp, Bob Seger and catchy-tuned Neil Diamond-types. Now I can see how versatile Kid Rock can be. Most of the songs on this album are toe-tapping, head-nodding just plain good stuff. Give it a listen, I hear the kids like this guy, too. ;)

This is the best of any Kid Rock cd I've bought. Ok, it's a little bit more on the "religious" side - if you can use the words "religion" and "Kid Rock" in the same sentence and not have a lightning bolt strike you dead. There are about 3 songs that are the reason the "Explicit Lyrics" sticker is on it. Only 1 almost made my ears bleed, but this ain't Helen Reddy. Another plus (or minus depending on how much you like Kid Rock) you can make out almost 100% of the words.

Do I recommend it? Yes.

"Rock 'N Roll" is the operative. Less rap and more rock, as promised, for the most part. Which is not to say it is anything worthy of critical praise- sloppy, unoriginal sophomoric lyrics, uninventive riffs, awkward rhymes, at times pretty amateurish sounding garage band stuff.

But if you like Kid Rock, especially the more rock and to some extent the southern rock vibe, you probably would like this album. It is actually better rounded out than the Cocky and Kid Rock albums in an overall listen.

Rock N Roll Jesus - pretty standard, generic stuff, maybe he kept it on the album because he liked the title and needed it on the album to make it make sense: 2/5

Amen - Bob Seger inspired arrangements and pretty listenable, maybe the most cross-over mainstream ready track on the disc: 4/5

All Summer Long - Zevon's Werewolves piano riff carries the verses, with some Skynryd for the chorus. Literally. Unoriginal but autobiographical lyrics maybe some people will like it. A fun listener but as unoriginal as you can get. 4/5 (just have to dig the Wolves + Skynyrd in any form!)

Roll On - Actually, this is probably the most likely radio hit, fit for any pop format, a nice laid back tune and a hook-sure chorus. 4/5

So Hott - Pretty raunchy lyrics, fit to be a favorite in strip clubs, except that it might encourage the guests to be a little too upfront. Sure, we all think it sometimes, but do you need to sing it? 1/5

Sugar - Nicely produced rocker with some signature Kid Rock rap/rock mashing going on, with some references to older hits (think Devil Without a Cause, the song). But "give me some sugar?!" Kind of strange, maybe I'm out of touch, but who call it "sugar"?

As Kid Rock quips on the album, he's 36 years old and still having fun. Glad to hear it. I've been a fan of the Kid and his creative fusion of rock and hip hop from the early days. On this effort, however, many of the songs sound contrived - or maybe I'm just uncomfortable with Kid Rock getting serious on topics like religion and war (e.g., Amen). 'So Hott' has a dirty guitar groove and unforgettable opening lyric - yet gets spoiled by the unnecessary f-bomb in the chorus. 'Sugar' sounds like the re-hash of the formula used on 'Cowboy' and just doesn't deliver.

My favorite song is 'All Summer Long," which is has a feelgood vibe and Sweet Home Alabama sample. 'When You Love Someone' is also a nice song on the softer side.

Overall, this album will appeal more to fans of southern rock than to those craving in-your-face party jams.

Why is this cd back into the top 25?
Well the hard core fans bought it right out of the gate. So that gives it a certain level of exposure out there. But the key is the crossover smash hit. This is exactly what happened when Picture was released. I believe it was the 3rd or 4th single released on Cocky. It too ascended rather... Read More
