KID ROCK...Rebel Soul  (2012)
Rebel Soul is the latest album from Kid Rock and it reached number 5 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  Kid Rock has used a formula that has worked surprisingly well.  That formula is to take hard rock, southern rock, country and R&B with a hint of blues, then add vocals that are reminiscent of AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Otis Redding, blend that all in with a bad boy attitude who loves his country, his women and his hometown of Detroit, Michigan and you have THE rock n roll winning formula for success.  Rebel Soul is no exception.  I enjoyed the record with the exception of the bad language.  I'll give it a 3 out of 5 stars.  recommended
