Review: Kid Rock
Rock N Roll Jesus (Atlantic)
Published 16/11/2007 | 11:46
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.
