Picks and Pans Review: Cocky

Kid Rock (Lava/Atlantic)

At 31, Kid Rock, the motormouth from the Motor City, refuses to grow up. On Cocky, his first studio disc since 1998's multiplatinum Devil Without a Cause, the raunchy rap rocker once again plays to the frat-boy crowd by bragging about his record sales, his prowess with the ladies (he's dating Pamela Anderson) and his high tolerance for partying. "Fly like a seagull/Kickin' like a mule/More jams than a Beatle from Liverpool/I deliver, fool," he crows on the disc's rowdy title track, which owes its old-school sound to the Beastie Boys. Rock does attempt to sing on a few tunes, but the results are no more musical or enlightening than when he raps. But hey, at least this is guaranteed to be a hit at your next kegger.

Bottom Line: A juvenile effort
