Kid Rock returns on November 16 with his 8th studio album Born Free produced by Rick Rubin and mixeddby Greg Fidelman and you know, hurry up to pre- order it. If you are a real music lover, this excellent cd definitely is for you.
Three years since the last album. I think the wait was worth it. It features some guests like Metallica’s James Hetfield or Red Hot Chili Peppers’s Chad Smith (guitar and drums).
From beginning to the end, it is a remarkable cohesive mix of classic and southern rock with blues sensibilities. I expected these musical genres and I am happy . I hope it debuts #1 because Born Free really deserves it. Kid’ s music speaks for him. The 7th Album Rock N Roll Jesus showed a new musical maturity. In Born Free, the talented musician shows us that he has still grew up musically.
Kid Rock excels in southern rock music. Born Free is a treasure of enjoyable sounds. This
is a journey of enchanting, a must have for all people. Kid’s voice is raspy, full of passion. He delivers each track with warmth like Born Free, totally additive. It was an amazing
first radio choice. It really gives the mood of the album.
It is also well produced. Every song really stands out through the first listen and has something to offer.There are great southern rock anthems like God Bless Saturday, Purple sky or When It rains but the rest of the album is memorable. The music is upbeat and rocking in Slow My Roll. The rock is not dead !! He has an incredible ability to hit the high notes easily in For the First Time (In A Long Time). Sweet duet in Care with Martina McBride. In this song, you can find some hip hop part with T.I.
There is also the cool duet with Zac Brown Flyin’ high, a country ballad with awesome epic solos guitars. You would like Collide with Sheryl Crow and Bob Seger. If you love blues, listen to superb tracks Rock On and Rock Bottom Blues. I really dig Times Like These, a beautiful anthem southern rock song. Beautiful acoustic guitar work.
In conclusion, it is hard to find a negative because there is no weak track. I search, search… If you want authentic music, I highly recommend Born Free. It is an album you will listen over and over because it is tasty. You have gold between your hands. Great performance vocals from Kid Rock. The band brilliantly accompanies him. Awesome harmony of melodic guitar and drum. The production is fantastic. Kid Rock ‘s voice is well highlighted. Kid can be proud of this one. He has always done good music but with the age, he becomes better. He is incredible and a genius musically. He is real and you feel it when he sings. He speaks with his heart. As a songwriter, he can write great lyrics and he proves it in Born Free. Make it #1 the first week.
