Soul Music for the Soulless,
This review is from: Rock N Roll Jesus (Audio CD)
Kid Rock seems to belong to the growing number of 'artists' who have taken at least some of their inspiration from the blues and soul stars of the sixties, seventies, and earlier decades, only to miss the point. Is there some intended irony in the choice of title? Modern rhythm and blues grew out of the churches and church choirs of the South. Kid Rock seems to have as much moral or physical depth, as much connection with the blues, as a plate of cold chips.
This album is a mixture of misogyny, misanthropy, narcissism, and self-loathing, with no common thread other than Kid Rock's belief he has a talent that deserves to be heard and a need to get paid. Its not even as if the rock tracks rock that hard.
White soul music has been done better before. Save your money - if you really want to hear a white man sing the blues mixed with hip-hop and rock buy Whitey ford Sings the Blues by Everlast instead.
