This Is A Jesus I Can Believe In

Rock N Roll Jesus. That’s a big statement to make…unless you’re Kid Rock.

His first album since 2003 hits you like he hit Tommy Lee: with a surprise bitch slap, and it’s a good surprise. Not sure why it was such a surprise to me, but it was. With all the hype floating around with this album, and with a title like Rock N Roll Jesus, you have to expect a lot. Kid Rock definitely delivers.

There’s a little bit of everything on this album to satisfy just about anyone’s palate. From the rowdy guitars in "So Hott" to the gospel choir in "Rock N Roll Jesus" to the bluesy, southern stomp of "New Orleans" to the country twang of "Half Your Age" (dedicated to the one and only, Ms. Pamela Anderson), you’re bound to find something you like.

Although he admits on the album that he has sinned, Kid Rock makes no apologies for his actions; it’s as if he almost finds salvation in them. He preaches that you can be a good person, and still have a little fun on the side.

Kid Rock sticks with what he knows best: sex, drugs, and rock n roll. The rock songs make you want to get drunk and get laid, and the slow songs make you stop and think. With all the cookie cutter bands out there right now, Kid Rock certainly stands out with his genuine, classic, rock n roll sound on this album. There is no doubt that he could definitely be rock n roll’s savior.



Note: Kid Rock recently got in trouble for kicking someone's ass at a Waffle House in Atlanta, GA. Seriously...it doesn't get any trashier than that. He definitely practices what he preaches, and that makes me love him even more.

I was on the fence about the new album but I've only heard it a few times. I had the chance to see him in concert several times and damn, he puts on a phenomenal show!

Yeah, it took me a few listens to really get into it. The slower songs are definitely the weaker spots on the album for me. But the rock songs definitely rock. I was trying to keep this post kinda short and sweet, so that's why I didn't get into all of that. Otherwise, I could have written a novel about each song. I still think the album was worth the $7.99 I paid for it.
