Kid Rock - Rock N Roll Jesus Cover

It's questionable whether Kid Rock's musical career ever got off the ground in the UK's eyes.

It's questionable whether Kid Rock's musical career ever got off the ground in the UK's eyes. Indeed, his recent award ceremony clash with Tommy Lee suggested a man who's more Hollywood caricature than bona fide rock star. On the plus side, you can't fault Rock's persistence, this being his seventh original studio album. But while America has a firmly established adult rock market that's primed to receive his old-man country and blues, us Brits just feel alienated. The hard rock songs that do grab your attention - 'So Hott' and 'Sugar' - do so for all the wrong reasons, thanks to Rock's vulgar sex references. This album reached No.1 in the US. Don't expect the same here.
