Kid Rock doesn't have all that much in common with David Bowie -- with the notable exception of an uncanny ability for self-reinvention. On this self-titled disc, the Motor City bad boy has all but entirely dispensed with the redneck rap-rock that catapulted him into the mainstream. In its place, Rock offers plenty of heartland boogie -- the kind of stuff that wouldn't be out of place on classic sides by Canned Heat, or even Black Oak Arkansas. His cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love," which hews fairly closely to the original, offers plenty of room for headbanging, while "Son of Detroit," his latest ode to his hometown, is the most no-nonsense of the stompers, rife with reminders that he's "a long haired, redneck son of Detroit." The second element of that self-description is in full flight here as well, with the David Allen Coe collaboration "Cold and Empty" positively oozing outlaw cred, and the self-explanatory "Hillbilly Stomp," which features a cameo by ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, trailing empty Lone Star bottles in its wake. There're a few clunkers, most of which come in the form of ill-advised ballads, but there's no doubting that Kid Rock's heart is in the right place -- in the corner of a dark, smoky bar with a jukebox that never stops.

classic kid rock music, written from the heart and to the point. althought all songs arent hits there are great songs, such as "Jackson, Mississippi" , "Black Bob" "Cold and Empty"

If you like country, buy a real country album by a real country singer. If you like rock, buy a real rock album by a real rock band. If you like blues, find something that actually represents the blues. Under no circumstances are you to pick up this piece of garbage, which alligns itself to no true style but tries to cash in on all styles by POORLY imitating them all. It might be different if it at least sounded good, but this sounds horrible.

As I am always looking for music that is real, not manufactured, but sung and created with heart and talent...this album did not disappoint me. Kid's lyrical and vocal abilities are superb. Again it becomes apparent that he is a true musical match with Sheryl Crow noted in the song 'Run off to LA'. And although "this here ain't no love song, and it ain't for you" Pam Anderson should feel like the plastic that she is.
