Regal titles like "the King of Pop" come and go, but no one has yet been able to challenge this Detroit diehard's claim to the "Raja of Raunch" throne -- a perch that allows him to be as nasty as he wants to be on this greased-up and groove-laden live set. Rock isn't one to mince words, as he proves on "American Bad Ass" and the Muhammad Ali-meets-Ted Nugent boast-fest "Motherf***er Quite Like Me." He pulls it off for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the good humor -- of the broad, foul-mouthed stripe -- that he slathers across the stanzas of tunes like "Devil Without a Cause." The disc, which was recorded across Rock's home state over the course of five years, doesn't skimp on the rap-rock that made him a chart fixture -- this version of "Bawitdaba" makes the studio take seem positively watery. Just as importantly, it showcases his deceptively smart take on dirt-under-the-fingernails rock -- a vibe that's echoed by the Seger-mimicking cover -- on songs like "Son of Detroit" and "Rock 'n' Roll Pain Train." Rock saves the biggest surprise for last, turning his Twisted Brown Trucker cohorts loose on a version of the Gap Band's "Outstanding" that doesn't stop until the final booty begins shaking. Consider this both raw and well done!
