Devil Without a Cause

I don't suspect that even Kid Rock believed he had an album as good as Devil Without a Cause in him. Nobody else believed it, that's for sure. But he didn't just find the perfect extention of his Beastie and Diamond Dave infatuations here, he came up with the great hard rock album of the late '90s -- a fearlessly funny, bone-crunching record that manages to sustain its strength, not just until the end of its long running time, but through repeated plays. The key to its sucesss is that it's never trying to be a hip-hop record. It's simply a monster rock album, as Twisted Brown Trucker turns out thunderous, funky noise -- and that's funky not just in the classic sense, but also in a Southern-fried, white trash sense, as he gives this as much foundation in country as he does hip-hop. But what really reigns supreme on Devil Without a Cause is a love of piledriving, classic hard rock, not just that of hometown hero Bob Seger, but Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Halen, and faceless arena rock ballads. The Kid makes it all shine with rhymes so clever and irresistible that it's impossible not to quote them. For all its modernity -- Rock's rapping, the titanic metallic guitars, Joe C's sideshow sidekick, the plea to "get in the pit and try to love someone" -- this is firmly in the tradition of classic hard rock, and it's the best good-time hard rock album in years (certainly the best of the last three years of the '90s). [Devil Without a Cause was also released in a "clean" version, removing most of the profanities and vulgarities -- and, along with them, some of the Kid's jokes.]

I thought that Kid Rock's Devil Without A Cause was one of the best albums I ever listened to. Everything about this album rocked. The beats were tight, the songs ruled, and the lyrics to many of the songs are hilarious.

I love this CD because it kicks a**. Every song on this CD kicks a**, because it is a kick a** CD. There is no weak songs on this CD. Kid Rock is a really unique band. They can do it with the hard rock on songs like ''Bawitdaba'' and ''Somebody's Gotta Feal This''. Then they can go with the rap style in tracks like ''Devil Without A Cause'' and ''Welcome 2 The Party''. This is a great CD and I highly recommend it.

''Devil Without a Cause'' has so much musical variety, one could never get bored listening. I'm a 35-year-old mother, not a likely Kid Rock fan, but I listen to this CD every day, all day long. I absolutely love the music and the lyrics, even the raunchy ones, but I think the reviewer who said Kid Rock is a good teen role model should have his head examined.

This kid actually has musical talent and the instrumental portion of his stuff is excellent. However, the lyrics are distasteful which ruins it for us older listeners who actually still like that type of music. Again, music is awesome....a little less crud in the lyrics wouldn't hurt this young man. As a matter of fact, I think it would only help his sales.

Kid Rock's version of rap and rock combines to be an unbeatable compound that deserves a 5 star rating from anyone!

Kid Rock's Devil Without a Cause is just simply the BEST! The use of instraments is outstanding. The best song on there would have to be 'Cowboy'. They should give him the awarad for best music artist of the year. That is why I gave it 5 stars.

I think this record has cool songs, a good beat, alot of meaning, and his rock is very cool and can get your fingers taping. I have this cd and it is one of the best ones I have.

If you really listen to what he has to say, you will see that he is real. He talks about real situations and what it is like in the real world. Rock on Kid!!

I love to play Kid Rocks songs over and over again. I get the lyrics and try to remember every word so when I am in my car or outside sunny I know and can sing along. My son is good at remembering the words and did a lip sync to''Welcome 2 the Party'' just the first part at a school talent night show. Kid would have been pound of him. Some parents did not like it that much.

Bob Ritchie is a genious with words. Although vulgar and offense, I listen to the style and the meanings behind the songs. I am happy that he finally made it to the rich life and his new album, Cocky, is a great piece of work as well. Buy this album should you be interested in what Bob Ritchie aka Kid Rock has to say.

Before ''Devil Without a Cause'', I had no idea who Kid Rock was. Well I can say now that he's a great artist and I've never enjoyed an album as much as this one. You definitely owe it to yourself, especially if you enjoy this type of music to pick up it up. Every song on this album is great and you'll still be listening to it a year from now!
