Well Kid Rock calls this album Rock N Roll Jesus. But it should be called Country Jesus. Because that is what you get. Overall just a pop country album. A lot of gospel in the background and plenty of acoustics. But Kid Rock has been spending to much time with Hank Williams Jr.
Lyrics — 7
Overall his lyrics are actualy better and tell of more stories rather than simple ryme schemes implied. Singing is great. Songwriting is great. And range is incredible. But muscianship is not there. And there is barly any rock. Here are all the songs detailes. 01. Rock N Roll Jesus - from past albums Kid Rocks first track was always one of the best with songs like bawitidaba, trucker anthem, and american badass opening the album up. Well this track is just boring. It is a blues country song that should have been more of a rock song. 02. Amen - this a acoustic guitar song(with a quick solo). And actualy one of the best songs kid Rock ever wrote. I mean I would rank it up there with someother songs at there. Basicly though this another country song. Singin is pretty good on this song. 03. All Summer Long - so far another, well you guesed another country song. This song just seems like the same thing he just did in rock and roll Jesus. It sound a lot though like Lynyrd Skynyrd. 04. Roll On - by now being as big of fan of Devil without a cause I was dissopointed this being another slow song. Like the rest of the other songs it still implies the gospel. But great singing and lyrics. This is like an old jazz song with a trumpet in it. Brings you back to the '20s mixed with current '20s. 05. So Hott - this is the first single off the album and the first rock song. It is a acdc styled playin with simple lyrics. And Kid Rock back to normal. But this song just doesn't satisfy like his other rock songs. As wierd as it is hearing this song makes me apreciate his country songs on here. Overall a medicore song. 06. Sugar - as quick as So Hott came we were back to country. Or so it seems. As the country ends I begin head bagin. It follows the same formula that he did in cocky. Even sounds like some old AC/DC. Pretty good song though. 07. When You Love Someone - I am not realy going to explain this song because it sounds like all the other country songs. 08. New Orleans - so this song is one of the worst songs on the album. Kid Rock sounds like a hick. And everything on this track is just boring. 09. Don't Tell Tell Me You Me - the title is a good tounge twister. Sounds to much like mother f--ker quite like me. Then jumps into another Lynyrd Skynyrd type song. 10. Blue Jeans And A Rosary - this album just gets more and more boring. I am personly getting sick of these country songs now. 11. Half Your Age - hearing this song just reminds you how boring it is again. Not a good song to go out on. Lyrics aint good. Musicianship is boring.
Overall Impression — 6
Well Kid Rock has changed a lot. Devil is still way better. The best songs from the album are amen and sugar. I love the fact that Kid Rock is trying something different. But I hate that it completly ruins the idea of what he used to be. If this album was stolen I would let them have it and go buy something else.
