    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
    At first, I doubted Beyonce going solo. "Work It Out" is so horrid. I thought she'd flop, but then she released "Crazy In Love," and WOW! Every song she releases is such a smash hit. My goal is to get every version of singles she releases. Especially because of remixes and the videos.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Baby Boy rocks
    This is a very good song, much better than the overplayed Crazy In Love. I haven't thought Beyonce can be this good. The two remixes of the song are quite good too, one of them is more Eastern-style and the other is more danceable than the album version, although the album version is the best. The Krazy In Luv remix is not as good, mostly it is only a turned down version of the original with an annoying tinkling sound.

    If you liked this song and now searching for something similar, check out Tatyana Ali's "Daydreamin'".

    1-0 out of 5 stars Boring
    still waiting for Beyonce's debut Song by the way.first Song "Crazy in Love" with Jay Z&now this one with Sean Paul the "In Dance Hall Artist for the Year.this Song sounds like it helps Sean Paul more than Beyonce overall.this Song sounds so Generic&Contrived&pretty much like alot of tracks you hear on the radio&Vocally it sounds like a Outtake from Her DC Days which when you are going solo you want to seperate yourself from your Group vibe. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is 50's best song!
    For those of ya'll are dissin', need to stop hatin' on 50 'cuz my man is surely taking slow one at a time. y'know a lot of people called him a hypocrite 'cuz he ain't rappin 'bout God and stuff or maybe 'cuz people don't like him when he sings or raps about. My dad once told me I should buy the clean version this time instead of the explicit version which I have at home y'know the whole album but now I lost it and ready to get 'nother one. Keep up the good work, 50! I'ma still be supporting u longest to the fullest. Don't even care 'bout people say 'bout u but u keeping doin' what u have to do. "In Da Club" would go on deepest in the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame along with Kanye's hit "Jesus Walks" and Twista's "Slow Jamz".

    Christina Aguilera is a great vocalist & song writer & it shows on this single. The beat is great & the message is a really great one. No matter what anybody says about her, she doesn't let it stop her, it just makes her stronger. Women have it hard, we always have. We are always searching for equality but we can never quite get there cause there's always put downs & set backs. Thank You, Christina! You are truly an inspiration!

    1-0 out of 5 stars the lowest point of thepop industry
    [...] She is an entertainer! The problem is: you can't stop the stupid kids for buying the celebrate pop crappy albums today. Who still recognize this maid in the next 10 years? it is the same case like britney spears and spice girls!

    PS: pls throw away the cd from your window or burn it to the hot ash volcanos!!!

    Thank god for america's future pop artists like this one!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Wow...
    Well, music has officially hit rock bottom with this one.John Entwistle is surely rolling over in his grave, and I'm sure Keith Moon would be too if he could.This song is unbelievably bad, as it is the worst translation of a song ever.Durst sounds like he should be fronting an emo band, not covering Who songs.As for saying he plays a good guitar, I think I can play a couple chords he uses.I feel bad for the real talent in the band noteably Wes Borlan, who has done nothing with his talent but make bad music.I'm so glad I grew up and stopped listening to these no talent @$$ clowns, and found the Who before hearing Fred's version.I may have actually liked it.For those of you who are over the age of 14 and like Limp Bizkit, I really feel sorry for you.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not Typ. Bizkit
    I am a HUGE bizkit fan.This is NOT old Bizkit, but good studio work.Lots of criticism from Bizkiteers who don't know much about music.When Durst is on, Bizkit ROCKS, but there's no real trace of Choco Starfish here.The WHO remake is the CD and it's good to see that Durst can do both.Didn't feel the rightwing vibe that the Alabama kid did (above) and would recommend for the WHO song.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unusual Remake
    I don't own this CD. I just keep hearing, and enjoying, "Behind Blue Eyes" at the sports club while working out and finally asked someone who the artist/singer is.Until today, I've never heard of Fred Durst or Limp Bizkit.However, I very much remember the original Who recording of this song from the late 60's "Who's Next" LP, that was very popular at the time. I actually think this remake, played at a slower beat, is even better.Also, if anyone noticed, the last two verses have been changed, and improved on in my opinion, from the original lyrics.After checking out a few Limp Bizkit songs it's not my kind of music and I certainly won't be buying any.But at least they got this one right.If you don't remember or like The Who's music then you may not like this either. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Well Enough Again
    Matchbox Twenty really came back within the past year with their album More Than You Think You Are. Their is no doubt that Rob Thomas and everybody else in the band continues to showcase their true colors. With their latest song, Unwell, it is a tender and not too heavy Rock ballad. I absolutely love the animated video reflecting how being a little unwell can really be exciting and completely realistic. Still, it is just a shame that there really wasn't anything else tha could come out with a video that exciting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WELL ENOUGH!!!!!
    YES MATCHBOX 20 IS STILL MY FAVORITE BAND!! I REALLY LOVE THE SINGLE "UNWELL", AND I LIKE THE WELL-WRITEN LYRICS, AND ITS NOT A CHEESY SONG IT HAS A MEANING TO IT. MATCHBOX 20 ROCK!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lyrics rule: Music super
    I will admit to bias, being a die-hard MB20 fan, but the reasons for my loyalty are affirmed on this disc. The band has evolved from their earlier, still playworthy hits. By this I mean that Rob Thomas and fellow band members have allowed their "maturing" (who wants to be *older*??) to catch up with both lyrics and sound. Their last cd "Mad Season" was magnificient with the addition of horns, and when I first played this cd through, I was disappointed to have none of that. However, the blend of harmonic voices along with a shiver producing cameo by some of the best Baptist singers of all time (on the song "Downfall") prove that the band continues to expand their range.

    There are a couple songs on the disc that don't appeal to me quite as much--but the rest have been played and replayed many times. Since I am almost 40, I feel safe in recommending this disc as a gift for any of my fellow generation. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars One of the worst songs I've heard
    This is by far the worst song I've ever had the misfortune of hearing. The beat is fine; there's nothing wrong with it, it's perfect for a club banger. But the lyrics! Oh my God! This is the worst excuse for a rap song I think I've ever heard. Pitiful attempt. The remix isn't much better. It all sucks. Can you believe that some of Chingy's songs have him actin all hard and crap? (...)please.

    1-0 out of 5 stars the worst R. Kelly has written for MJ
    I think that this song is not bad, but it is not good either.It is weak lyrically and musically and I don't think it's worthy of MJ.The thing I liked about Cry and You Are Not Alone is that they didn't sound like R. Kelly songs, they sounded like MJ songs.One More Chance sounds like an R. Kelly song that he should have put on his own album, not an MJ album.I think the only reason he released it along with number ones is to get out of his recording contract with sony.I have this single and number ones, but only cause I am a die hard.They still aren't mj worthy, but I always support MJ.Michael we love you and know you are innocent! :)Work more with Babyface, not R. Kelly :) ... Read more

    I'm sick of seeing all these "clay mates" posting negative reviews just because of their jealousy. Anyways, Ruben does an incredible job of Flying Without Wings. His version is really inspirational and just makes you feel good. Great job Ruben!

    1-0 out of 5 stars How to crucify a classic song in one easy lesson...
    I feel sorry for you all over in America that you have to endure this dire cover version of Flying Without Wings, because the ORIGINAL version, as performed by Irish band Westlife is a million times better.Shame on Simon Cowell for selling out the act that made him famous so he could make more money in the US...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Huh?
    Ok, the title of this thing is Flying without wings. Ruben couldn't fly if he had wings because he weighs too dang much. His wings would literally have to stretch over city blocks to get him off the ground. The song is awesome though, Go Ruben!! ... Read more

    As We Know JS Were Taken Under The Wing Of None Other Than R.Kelly...When I First Heard JS Sing "Stay Right Here" I Could Have Sworn It Was R.Kelly's Past Female Group Changing Faces, Kelly Stuck To The Same Formula As Changing Faces When He Worked On JS's Debut Album Ice Cream...Although These Girls Obviously Have Great Voices, I Could Have Picked Up The First CF Album And Gotten The Same Songs...But Moving On...Kandi & Kim Sound Much Better Over A Slow, Mellow Track Than Than They Do On Tracks Such As "Ice Cream" I Recommend You Try "Sister" Or "Stay Right Here" If You Have Yet To Hear JS

    2-0 out of 5 stars Ice Cream
    I thought the song was okay I just didn't get the meaning of the song. All they were talking about was Ice Cream, what does that have to do with anything!

    3-0 out of 5 stars This Is Definitely Produced By R. Kelly
    The ladies of JS have nice, serene voices, but everything on the cd sounds the exact same for some unknown reason. I'm not saying it isn't good to listen to. You can just about tell what the content of the songs are and how the beats are.

    The best songs are Stay Right Here, Love Angel, and the title track, Ice Cream. I don't like the remix because of R. Kelly constantly yelling in the background. Plus it is poorly placed in the middle of the album four songs after the original.

    Maybe on their next attempt, the sisters will be able to come up with something a little bit better. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Uncle Kracker might have rap-rock numbskull Kid Rock to thank for putting him on the map, but with the release of his solid sophomore set, the Michigan mauler can stand up and take a bow. For not only is Uncle Kracker the most Southern-sounding musician ever to emerge from the edge of the Great Lakes, he's also one of the most versatile. As such, No Stranger to Shame is by turns country, rock, soul, blues, and sometimes a vigorous mix of the lot. The horn-section-goosing opening track "I Do" is pure Stax with a little '70s-era thwacketa-thwacketa guitar menace; "Thunderhead Hawkins," with its drawling vocals and slide guitar, is pure Arkansas front-porch boogaloo; "Memphis Soul Song" is just that; "To Think I Used to Love You" could have been torn from the Merle Haggard songbook; and "Keep It Comin'" is fierce hip-hop. A ballad, "Letter to My Daughters," is sweet if unnervingly sappy (think Bob Carlisle's "Butterfly Kisses"), while Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath adds negligible freight to the title track. But No Stranger to Shame's finest moment is a borrowed one--a faithful cover ofDobie Gray's inspirational rock & roll love letter, "Drift Away." An underappreciated classic from the early '70s, "Drift Away" still sounds relevant, and Kracker's soulful version--featuring Gray himself--will do much to spotlight that comforting old chestnut. --Kim Hughes ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to my expectations
    I think my title pretty much sums it up for how I feel about this album.Uncle Kracker, to me, has potential but has not fully applied it yet.I bought it mainly because it was 2.99 for a new copy at my local record shop.I spun it, and felt a little dissapointed.I liked the cover of Dobie Gray's Drift Away--which confuses me because Dobie Gray is the lead vocalist, not the Uncle--and the song Keep it Comin', but the rest is too mediocre to buy it at full price.Fortunately, I got a great bargain so it's worth my money, but you need to wonder if it's worth YOUR money.I'm just not sure.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Easily flowing between rock, soul, funk, C&W and rap...
    This is an excellent album. Who would have thought that Kid Rock's turntabilist could put out such a solid effort? This album is very diverse, easily flowing between rock, soul, funk, C&W and rap. He has a nice voice, very reminiscent of John Melloncamp. He even does a duet with Dobie Gray on the classic Drift Away.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars.....Kracker's 2nd album.
    Though very, very different from Kracker Double Wide album, i Still Give it 5 stars. This is not hip-hop like Double wide. this is straight memphis soul, Oldies Rock and Country. The Only Rap is the first and last songs.Theres A Bonus track Called AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL.

    Lumidee may not be a great singer, but she is doing it way big with the Never Leave song. Actually, she has a nice voice. It is just she knows her limits. This song is playing everywhere and the beat is a killer. The haters got to admit, this is a hit song and it will always be remembered.

    3-0 out of 5 stars One hit wonder but good
    Lumidee's "never leave you" has been played for a long time now, it's that kind of song that is simple and you can dance too. The version with Busta Rhymes and Fabolous is without a doubt the best. Even if Lumidee's voice is limited the single works fine and it's pretty good too but i doubt that her second single will be any hit.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Bonus Tracks
    This cd-single features three previously unreleased tracks and a radio edit of "Calling All Angels" from 2003's excellent 'My Private Nation'.The single is vintage Train with a great melody and an incisive, reflective message on the state of society post-9/11.It's a message of guarded hopefullness and very sincerely delivered with a catchy melody as good as anything from 'Drops of Jupiter'.What makes this cd-single worth purchasing, however, is the quality of the three bonus tracks (not available anywhere else thus far).Both "For You" and "Landmine" could've easily fit on 'My Private Nation' and I wonder why they were left off."Fascinated" is worth hearing as well although it's a little repetitive.Each track is between three and four minutes in duration.These bonus songs aren't nearly as stylistically diverse as the two extra tracks included with the limited edition pressings of 'Drops of Jupiter'."Landmine" is particularly good although it is rather similar in sound to "Counting Airplanes" from MPN.Well worth purchasing for these hard to track down quality tracks by one of today's best rock n' roll bands.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Angel Bound
    There is no doubt that Train has been out of the public eye for a certain period of time. Nevertheless, their back with a brand new hit song, Calling All Angels. This personally happens to be one of their best songs currently. Pat Monahan and company surely have come a long way since they started with Meet Virginia back in 1999. Personally, I really enjoyed not just the song, but its video is absolutely breathtaking. I absolutely love the computer-animated graphics. There is no doubt that this is truly one of the top songs for 2003.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Yes!
    I didn't know trains could fly, but Train certainly soars here. True they don't break any new ground here, but "Calling on Angels" is exactly what I wanted to hear from train anyway. It is Train to perfection and in my mind is superior even to the mega-hit "Drops of Jupiter" I hope these guys continue to make their own brand of uplifting music for a long time. ... Read more

True, Mariah has better songs than this one, but "I Know What You Want" is a nice R'n'B songs with catchy melody and rhythm. I don't listen the 2nd track "Break Ya Neck" too often 'cuz it uses th f-word too often, but I like the instrumental version of "I Know What You Want" and the single also has the video so it is really worth the money.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Bad Bad ..
    This is a bad song.
    Boring MTV, boring lyrics, boring tune, boring rhythm, boring mix too.
    I give 1 star for allowing Mariah Carey to sing the stupid chorus. Anyone can fill in for her.
    Don't get this single. I got it because of Mariah is in it. And I am sure, there are others too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great and super catchy!!!
    this song is brilliant and the beat is awesome!!... no wonder its such a huge hits all around the world.... the video is cool too with mariah looking really sexy.... ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars TOO COLD FOR CD
    Arrrrgh!Damn P. Diddy and the powers that be!Just when we had enough trouble digesting formulaic (c)rap, more of it is thrown in our collective plate.Watching "Making the Band 2" would make one think that the major reason that P. Diddy finally dismantled the manufactured rap group Da Band was because of their incessant in-house squabbling.Think again: TOO HOT FOR T.V. is a terrible album.

    First off, the distinctive styles from each member--Babs (Brooklyn), Ness (Philly), Chopper (N'awlins), Freddy P (Miami), Sara (Detroit) and Dylan (Brooklyn via Grenada)--never creates anything synergic or cohesive.It just seems that their regional diversity never works, often clashing with one another.What's more, the singer (a decent, albeit unspectacular, Sara) and the reggae superstar-wannabee (an inexplicably arrogant Dylan) always seem out of place.In fact, both of them are underused, with Sara only working on the hooks and Dylan...well...judging from how he was portrayed in the show as a lazy bum, is that a surprise?

    Second of all, the songs feel cramped, with all six members of Da Band figuratively fighting for mic time.There is really little time for each of them to really develop and shine within each song.Yes, there is a solo song for the big-headed C-h-o-p-p-e-aruuuuh! ("Chopped Up"), but...too little, too stale.

    Which brings me to the third point--lyrical and conceptual mediocrity.It is not that these guys are downright terrible with lyrics, or totally lack in the personality department (at least some of them)--Ness has the clever punchlines, Babs is a straight-up battle chick, Chopper at least has some charisma, and Freddy P seemingly has unlimited energy--but it is what they say.Tired rap cliches--guns, robbery, sex, clubbing, money--seriously mar this album.Some of the titles in the album scream "Hip-Hop 101" (e.g. "Stick Up,"which is about...yes, you guessed it: a stick-up!).And how in the hell can you use a microscope to see something in the sky, as clever Fred said in "Why"?

    Not that the album is a total washout.There's some competent production, courtesy of Tony Dofat; but even with that, it is not particularly groundbreaking, and even echoes recent trends or the works of other producers (e.g. the eerily Neptunes-sounding "Bad Boy This, Bad Boy That").It is almost enough to clothe the cliched lyrics.Almost.Ugh.Just what the hip-hop world needs--another contrived product from the studio.If TOO HOT FOR T.V. was meant to resurrect Bad Boy, this once-dominant company is definitely in serious trouble.And oh, P. Diddy and Da Band?--Shame on you for wasting our time with a fruitless reality TV show and this "weed plate" of a disc.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Da Band: Mikeisha's Opinion
    Fred, Ness, Sara, Chopper, Dylan and Babs, good job! I truly enjoy listening to this album each time I put it into my CD player.The production is very good, the rhymes from the various members are tight, and Sara, while not different at all from the other r&b singers today (vocal wise), holds her own on the CD as well.It's a shame they had to part ways because the show was entertaining and the members of the band are just so full of energy.I feel that some of the members got much more time to shine on the CD than others, but that doesn't take away from the album, it's simply something I want to bring to potential buyers' attention. This album does have some fillers.A couple of tracks it's pretty obvious were just throw together.
    "Too Hot for TV" is definitely an upbeat album.There are a couple of slower songs, but not many at all.Ness never disappointed me lyrically, but some of the other rappers (especially Chopper) have just mediocre flow."Bad Boy This, Bad Boy That" contains nice rhymes from all of the members of the band, and the production is definitely some of Sean Combs' best work yet."Tonight" is a nice song and it's the only song that all the members get the chance to do their thing on.This song is also upbeat and there was good production as well.On "Chopped Up", listeners really get to hear Chopper, and this song is probably the main reason why I say that his flow is simply mediocre.He is OK, but he has a lot of work to do if he wants to be one of raps greats.The song is OK though."My Life" is truly an album highlight.Da Band members get personal and speak on experiences they've lived through.They all delivered well on this track, and, though a little sad, it's a nice way to start the album."Living Legends" is led by Dylan.He has talent and could actually be one of reggae's greats if he tried harder."Living Legends" was one of the reasons this album has a good review by me."I Like Your Style" also features Dylan, and Babs.Their voices compliment each other and together they produced a good song.
    This album is good and should have done better on the charts.It's not the hardest core rap Bad Boy is so famous for, but I like it, I like it a lot.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Puffy ruined it
    Puffy's control freak habits destroyed an incredible ensemble with a lot of raw talent. Instead of letting the rappers perform from their hearts he wanted them to rap the way HE wanted them to sound. That pretty much destroyed the fire of the group. It sounds like the album was rushed and the verses sound copy and pasted to the tracks. Hip hop is about individuality and originality. When you dont have those its all garbage. The only person Puffy didnt seem to control all the time is Ness. Thats why I gave this CD 2 stars because of Ness performance. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Is Kid Rock about to drop the first half of his stage moniker? Some alarmingly mature cuts on his sixth album, addressing the woes of single parenthood ("Single Dad") and painful separations ("Cold and Empty," a cover of Bob Seger's "Hard Night For Sarah"), might suggest so. But that's only part of the story. As Rock reiterates on "Son of Detroit," a butt-kicking revamp of David Allan Coe's "Son of the South," "I like country, soul, rock and roll, and I love me some hip-hop." Yet compared to his previous work, that last flavor takes a back seat to the other three: Hank Williams, Jr. drops by for the swaggering "Cadillac Pussy," Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" gets a gritty nu-metal update, and ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd receive shout outs. Have no fear, fans--even as he reconciles having a child with acting like one, the Kid still lives to rock. --Kurt B. Reighley ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Rocks, but has its problems
    First off, let me say it RIPS the COCKY record in HALF and SPITS IT OUT. Cocky sucked. It was like Kid Rock hitting puberty, not knowing whether to be his old self or be a Tobe Keith sell-out. Then again, his first two albums (1st two commercial albums, DWAC and Hist. of Rock) blew Cocky away too. This guy is an inventer, a rocker wanting to do everything he finds cool, but is still riding on his DWAC high. A little sold-out, you know.

    I wish he would get himself in check a little more. This album feels that way slightly, but the songs he doesn't remake (I am against remakes for the most part, ecspecially when they become the selling points of an album) feel slightly disjointed and media infected. If he wants to go southern rock, go southern rock and still have fun with it but write a little better. All the Pamela Anderson influences are a little tiring. It's like he puts up a headline in the papers for his life, then sings about it through the entire album. The rock follows the headline type thing. A typecast rocker, a little too much infected by Hollywood. Trying to do his thing, while still worrying too much if people will like it. Then the audiences review too much with the sympathy factor, and not the reality factor.

    In short: set your mind to what you do, Kid. Define your path for the album before doing it, and forget the media. Write with a passion, and absolutely artistically destroy the music scene. You can do it. This album, not COCKY, is the beginning testament that you can focus. Forget COCKY altogether. Leave DWAC in the past, memories of yesterday. Run with what drives you now, whether its southern rock, hip hop, nu-metal, whatever. Start the revolution the 21st century needs.

    This album is good...for the most part. Rock N Roll, R&R Pain Train, and Hillbilly Stomp prove that. Jackson, Mississippi shows a Dark and Gray style that works (for the most part). Completely craft an album with 100% pure, creative pizzaz, and we'll be there listening. Keep it coming, but don't settle in the tracks now. The best is yet to come.

    With that attitude, Kid Rock will finally prove to all that, like him or hate him, he can singlehandedly define the real music of tommorrow.

    Peace out from Who. Hope this was helpfull to you (Vote Yes or No)

    5-0 out of 5 stars loved it
    this by far is my favorite kid rock album. He show grate talent. music varies from slow to some alternative. He shows some of his life. listen to this one a lot.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A solid Southern Rock album
    I received this album as a Christmas gift two years ago and it was a great gift.This was my first Kid Rock album, and it's a good place to start if you like the "Southern" Kid (I use that term loosely, considering he's from Detroit) better than his rap-rock stuff.

    It starts with Rock 'n' Roll Pain Train, a solid country-rock song.Then it goes into the nearly-cookie-cutter-but-just-barely-saved song Cadillac Pussy with Hank Williams Jr. singing the majority of the chorus.As we come to Feel Like Makin' Love, there are mixed emotions on the cover.Obviously, RJ wants to spice it up Kid Rock-style, so he's going to scream in the chorus.If you like Bad Company and don't like it when artists change the style of a song, listen to this with caution.He changes it.

    Overall, the album shows Kid Rock reinventing himself once again, and with success.

    Reccomended. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    A former oil field worker, Toby Keith has always known how to capture the passions of blue-collar men and women, desperate to blow off steam at the end of the day. As such, he’s stocked his latest album with themes designed to push all the right emotional buttons--patriotism, Jesus, buddy love, fast women, and reality altering substances. "I Love This Bar," the first single, offers a kinder, gentler Keith than the boot-shoving redneck of "Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American)." But as he segues to "American Soldier," a song so gung-ho and puffed up that it could be a musical recruitment poster, you know he’s gearing up for a scud missile of a payoff. Sure enough. By the time he gets to "The Taliban Song," a comedic and cartoonish skewering of The Enemy, recorded in concert, it’s hard to remember that he once wrote well-crafted ballads of romantic infatuation. Now it’s all grandstanding, baby, even the best-written song, a jazzy, talking blues which fillets his critics. If he’s not exactly "Shock’n Y’All" as the title suggests, he’s certainly putting his "Baddest Boots" forward. --Alanna Nash ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Music For The Mindless...........
    This guy only fuels the stereotype of the "dumb redneck".He's a typical oppurtunistic right winger catering to the same mindless Americans that his hero George Bush does.I am so glad that myself and many others recognize crap when they see it. I am a military veteran and not all wars are justified. It's OK to question your government, in fact it's the most patriotic thing an American CAN do.

    1-0 out of 5 stars The most ignorant performer in popular music
    Can any right minded person take this man seriously? With songs such as "The Taliban Song", "Courtesy Right White & Blue", and "American Soldier", he gives not only music but politics a bad name. Ignore this completely arrogant jingoist, and listen to something intelligent. The man makes Ted Nugent look like Noam Chomsky with his sense of what is going around in the world today. Pure propaganda produced for America.

    5-0 out of 5 stars How can he get any better?
    If you are looking for the typical Toby Keith CD, you are getting it. It is full of testosterone and patriotism (something that the critics of this album seem to misunderstand) and good Ol Country Music. American Soldier is a song that has brought many Americans in Iraq support and inspiration. Toby really does love our troops. Not only does he write songs in support of them, but he even flies overseas to perform for our troops. If you criticize Toby because of the patriotism this album brings, then you are obviously jealous of the fact that his message is actually heard, and adored by our wonderful soldiers. I Love This Bar tells of a man's love for... you guessed it, a bar. American Soldier tells of the selfless sacrifices our great troops give for America each and every day. Toby may not have served in the army or in any war, but his dad was a WWII Veteran and knows what a real patriot is. Whiskey Girl is my favorite song on the album because of it's upbeat rhythum. Blender Magazine gave this song the title of one of the worst songs of 2004. Well, they usually lack taste in music, but Whiskey Girl is just too good. Weed with Willie and Taliban Song may sound bad, but they are just good humored songs and not to be taken seriously. If you spend $12.00 on this CD, you will most definately have your money's worth and you may even want to buy it for your friends. ... Read more

    A well-done, upbeat, and fun remake of a classic song! The first cut with the Kumars is funny and catchy. Well worth the money - in the UK all proceeds go to their Comic Relief fund. The second cut is a nice romantic ballad. One of the best parts of the enhanced CD is the video! A real hoot!!!! ... Read more
