Having gone after the Satanist vote on 1998’s Devil Without a Cause, is the Kid now courting Christians via Rock N Roll Jesus? No. The title track is a nondenominational, AC/DC-style tribute to Rock’s rockingness, while ”Amen” finds Kid Rock taking lyrical aim at established religion. There is a fairly catholic array of influences here: Smile-provoking nostalgiafest ”All Summer Long” lifts elements from both ”Werewolves of London” and ”Sweet Home Alabama.” But the mediocre ”New Orleans” makes hard work of celebrating Big Easy blues.
