Review: Kid Rock

Rock N Roll Jesus (Atlantic)

Rapper rocker Robert Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, ditches his usual mashed up, bewildering concoction of redneck rock 'n' roll and southern honky tonk on his latest album.

Rock N Roll Jesus is the follow-up from the self-titled 2003 record and the emphasis is more on the rock than the rap.

To date, Rock has found having one foot in each genre is no bad thing - he simply gives us the best and worst of both worlds on one record.

Here the Kid deals with race relations and religion and there's a number of half decent tunes along the way.

The best of these is All Summer Long and the lovely, country-tinged When U Love Someone.
