Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 1/17/02, p.48
3 stars out of 5 - "...A massive banging victory....Rock self-conciously builds on his badass-hick-with-a-heart-of-gold image..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/23/01, p.82
"...A similar blend of low-rider hip-hop and strip-mall heavy metal, flavoring its Camaro-ready jams with the occasional turntable wika-wika, Steven Tyler yowl or tasty guitar lick...you have to at least admire the breadth of his vision..." - Rating: B
Q - 1/02, p.102
3 out of 5 stars - "...songs take rock and rop ethics and enthusiastically smash them together..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 2/02, p.102
"...An enjoyably bad-ass record..."

Kid Rock's unique blend of Midwestern rock & roll, rap, and R&B gets another airing with COCKY, which features a plethora of road tunes, who's-the-baddest cuts, and straight-ahead drinking songs. The slow, greasy grooves of "You Never Met a Motherf**cker Quite Like Me" contrast violently with the Detroit Rock City raunch of "I'm a Dog," which itself stands in stark contrast to the first half of "Midnight Train to Memphis," an atypical, steel guitar-accompanied ballad.
You don't come to Kid Rock for subtlety (the last cut, WCSR, featuring Snoop Dogg, is proof of that). He's a Midwestern rapper who wishes he was in Lynyrd Skynrd--and who could probably make a pretty good job of it. The straight-ahead rock tunes swing mightily courtesy of drummer Stefanie Eulinberg, and Rock has his bad-ass rap act down cold here, though how much longer he can keep it up is another question for another time.
