While Kid Rock has gotten a lot more attention for building a bridge between the post-hip-hop urban jungle and the roadside truck stop, this onetime House of Pain MC is every bit as effective in reconciling those two aesthetics. On this, his fourth solo outing, the artist formerly known as Erik Schrody doesn't stray too far from the gravelly textures of Whitey Ford Sings the Blues and Eat at Whitey's, but he manages to squeeze some extra poignancy from blue-collar tales like this disc's title track, a loving homage to a trailer-dwelling waitress. He shifts from storytelling mode to offer some heart-on-his-sleeve confessions, most of which -- like the dead-of-night musing "Sleeping Alone" -- find him mulling over romantic failures with classic country wistfulness. And while he hasn't lost touch with his inner hip-hopper -- "Pain" features a sample from his old band, while the dark Appalachiana of "Blinded by the Sun" borrows a snippet or two from Eric B & Rakim -- Everlast isn't prone to living in the past. White Trash Beautiful is very much the product of a man who's comfortable in the here-and-now -- and thoroughly at ease in his own skin.
