Kid Rock's unique blend of Midwestern rock & roll, rap, and R&B gets another airing with COCKY, which features a plethora of road tunes, who's-the-baddest cuts, and straight-ahead drinking songs. The slow, greasy grooves of "You Never Met a Motherf**cker Quite Like Me" contrast violently with the Detroit Rock City raunch of "I'm a Dog," which itself stands in stark contrast to the first half of "Midnight Train to Memphis," an atypical, steel guitar-accompanied ballad.
You don't come to Kid Rock for subtlety (the last cut, WCSR, featuring Snoop Dogg, is proof of that). He's a Midwestern rapper who wishes he was in Lynyrd Skynrd--and who could probably make a pretty good job of it. The straight-ahead rock tunes swing mightily courtesy of drummer Stefanie Eulinberg, and Rock has his bad-ass rap act down cold here, though how much longer he can keep it up is another question for another time.

Rolling Stone (1/17/02, p.48) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A massive banging victory....Rock self-conciously builds on his badass-hick-with-a-heart-of-gold image..."
Entertainment Weekly (11/23/01, p.82) - "...A similar blend of low-rider hip-hop and strip-mall heavy metal, flavoring its Camaro-ready jams with the occasional turntable wika-wika, Steven Tyler yowl or tasty guitar lick...you have to at least admire the breadth of his vision..." - Rating: B
Q (1/02, p.102) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...songs take rock and rop ethics and enthusiastically smash them together..."
Mojo (Publisher) (2/02, p.102) - "...An enjoyably bad-ass record..."
Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I got this record because there is ONE song on it - The Picture - sung with Sheryl Crow - couldn't find it anywhere but this CD - ended up finding Sheryl Crow's CD which was much better. If you like Hard Rock you might like Kid Rock - I don't.
