Editorial Review

It's fitting that the Kid Rock revival got started when the Beastie Boys featured him in their Grand Royal magazine--and not because the kid from Detroit shares their skin tone. Rock has often been compared with the early Beasties--the boys of "Fight for Your Right to Party" and "Brass Monkey," the boys no one ever thought would grow up. With lines like "I ain't straight outta Compton, I'm straight out the trailer" and "I started an escort service--for all the right reasons," it's obvious that Kid Rock doesn't aim to follow suit. But that's no hindrance to Devil--backed by the funky metal band Twisted Brown Trucker and special guests like blues vets Robert Bradley and Thronetta Davis, Rock is hosting one hell of an interesting party. Ultimately, Rock's party is great, schlocky fun, equal parts old Beasties and Sebastian Bach--making Devil a guilty pleasure, the Starship Troopers of hip-hop. --Randy Silver ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This Will Make You a Believer
Guns N'Roses are gone. Led Zeppelin is history. Aerosmith has been clean for years. The Rolling Stones are living, breathing anachronisms. Rod Stewart is a pop singer. And hip hop bands don't use live bands with loud guitars. Is the modern music scene hopeless?

Nope. It's alive and dangerous. For those of us who miss loud guitars and controversial lyrics, Kid Rock has come to the rescue.

If you are a hard rock fan and can keep from banging your head during "Bawidaba," you don't have the volume loud enough. If you don't bang your head after the piano break in "Cowboy," you need to buy Pat Boone's "In a Metal Mood." If you don't sing along to the bridge in "Roving Gangster," perhaps you need to take your a** to the early-bird special at Denny's and take your geritol.

If you miss the danger of G N'R, you'll love the drug-glorifying jams of "I Am the Bullgod" and "Where You at Rock?"

While I've never been a fan of hip hop, I must say I thoroughly enjoy the drug-glamorizing, braggadoccio of Kid Rock's "Devil Without a Cause." Imagine the Beastie Boys merged with G n' R, Zeppelin, and Skynyrd and you have Kid Rock.

If you're looking for modern music with the edginess of the backporch of a house overlooking the Pacific in SoCal, this is it.

4-0 out of 5 stars A lot better than I thought it would be
"Devil Without A Cause" is a lot better than I thought it would be. It opens up with "Bawitdaba", which is one of the best song's on the CD. My other favorites are "Devil Without A Cause", "I Am The Bullgod" and "F-ck Off". If you like rap-rock than you should get this CD. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The History of Rock arrives as the sort of superstardom-celebrating release that can buy a hot-selling artist time. (Think, say, G N' R Lies.) After 8 million (and counting) sales of 1998's Devil Without a Cause, the trailer-rockin' rapper is out to remind the world that it hardly started there. Mostly drawn, and often retooled, from his out-of-print Polyfuze Method and Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp, these tracks display a "funky country hick" already on point with his knowing, hardheaded combo of old-school beats and classic-rock guitars. An "American Bad Ass" for sure, but also an artist who could come only from America, Kid Rock brings the noise--not to mention the bread and the circus. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent, but misleading packaging...
This CD is fine, if you know what you are getting. Packing list should read:

1 absoulutely killer new song (American Badass)

1 fairly lousy new song

The rest of the Cd is made up of a mix of re-recorded or re-mixed Kid Rock "classics". Most of the songs are very listenable, if a little derivative. They all sound better than the orignal versions available only on the out-of-print CD's.

You also get a few un-refurbished tracks straight from old albums which sound pretty dated production-wise. There are also a couple of unreleased songs which are ok, but unessential.

All this adds up to a decent Cd. I bought it for "American Badass", and fully expected the rest of it to be horrible... but, it's really not so bad. I do take issue with Kid Rock and his record company for deliberately presenting this as a "new" album... i.e. the sequel to "Devil Without a Cause". The only way you'd know what it really contains is by reading a review or reading the CD booklet (which obviously means buying the CD.

The cd does go some way toward illustrating that Kid Rock was not an overnight sensation... or, was an "overnight" sensation 10 years in the making. All of the ideas that made "devil" a killer album and a hit were kicking around in Kid's warped brain for a decade... they just came together the best on "Devil".

So, in closing, if "Devil" was like U2's "Joshua Tree" (i.e. a breakout album than attracted millions of fans) then "History" is "Rattle Hum" (a thrown together mish-mash designed to buy time and make money while the artist works on the proper follow up). Buyer Beware.

4-0 out of 5 stars The bullgod is back
2 years ago,Detroit based nu-metal artist Kid Rock crossed over from the underground hip-hop clubs of Michigan,to the mainstream pop charts with his hit album "Devil without a cause". This is not a follow up album as some believe but a compilation of remixed,re-recorded,and unreleased material from before the detroit rapper/rocker's went mainstream.The main difference between this and DWAC is, in DWAC Kid rarely went beyond the rap-metal genre,here Kid showcases his talent in a number of styles. We have hiphop tracks like 3 Sheets to the wind, country ballads such as My Oedipus complex,he even pays tribute to Elvis in Born 2 B A Hick!But fans of DWAC will not be dissapointed by songs such as American BadAss,F**k That and Prodigal son. I recomend this album to anyone who appreciates artists such as Linkin Park,Papa Roach and Eminem,in the words of Kid himself "P*mp On!"

Editorial Review

The rise of the Insane Clown Posse--or a group very much like them--was probably inevitable; somebody had to play the part of Howard Stern in the rap world. That it was two guys in clown makeup who rap--badly--over prerecorded tracks and spray their audiences with soda was a pure accident, brought about when their former record label dropped the act on the eve of the release of The Great Milenko. The Amazing Jeckel Brothers, their first proper follow-up album to Milenko, capitalizes on their notoriety; it features guests like the Jerky Boys and Ol' Dirty Bastard and issues challenges to MTV, Lollapalooza, and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons--whom ICP accuse of stealing their "shit" (though shtick would be a more appropriate word, and it was Simmons's in the first place). ICP stick with the formula on Jeckel Brothers that they've, um, perfected; it's not for everyone, but fans won't be disappointed. --Randy Silver ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars COULD'VE BEEN BETTER
THIS CD, WHICH IS THE 5TH JOKER'S CARD, IS OK, TO SAY THE LEAST. I WILL SAY THIS ABOUT THE ALBUM, IT HAS THE FUNNIEST SKITS THAT ICP HAS EVER DONE IN THEIR ENTIRE CAREER. EVEN THOUGH I DON'T PLAY THIS CD TOO MUCH, IT STILL IS KINDA SPECIAL TO ME. AFTER ALL, THIS WAS THE 1ST ICP ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT! THESE ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE ALBUM; ''MAD PROFESSOR'', ICP'S VERSION OF THE GETO BOYS CLASSIC ''ASSASSIN'', ''EVERYBODY RIZE'', ''TERRIBLE'', AND ''I WANT MY SH*T''. ODB MAKES AN APPEARANCE ON ''B***HES'' AND THE DOGGFATHER HIMSELF SNOOP DOGG MAKES A SUPRISING APPEARANCE ON ''THE SHAGGY SHOW''. BY THE TIME THIS ALBUM WAS RELEASED, ICP STARTED SHOWING UP ON WCW SHOWS AND THEY WOULD LATER FORM THEIR VERY OWN WRESTLING COMPANY, WHICH IS CALLED JUGGALO CHAMPIONSH*T WRESTLING. THE CD'S WORTH BUYING, EVEN THOUGH IT AIN'T AS GOOD AS A LOT OF THEIR OTHER CDS. FOLLOWED BY A DIRECT-TO-VIDEO MOVIE, ENTITLED ''BIG MONEY HUSTLAS'', BIZAAR, FORGOTTEN FRESHNESS VOL. 3, AND THE 6TH JOKER'S CARD ''THE WRAITH; SHANGRI-LA''.

5-0 out of 5 stars The 5th Jokers Card Is Amazing!
We've seen 4 jokers cards and now here's the 5th, The Amazing Jeckel Brothers. I wouldn't say it's Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J's best work, but it's damn near close.
Here's what i thought about each track:

1. Intro - nothing to say.
2. Jack Jeckel - nothing to say.
3. Bring It On - This track kicks [prosterior}, a great opening for The Amazing Jeckel Brothers. Plus after this track is a hilarious phone skit with the FOOKOFF joke from the RiddleBox album.
4. I Want My [Sh*t] - Awesome track, one of the best on the album.
5. B*tches - [Heck] yeah, ICP and ODB, what more can you ask for?
6. Terrible - It's alright.
7. I Stab People - Good track.
8. Another Love Song - Follow up to the original Love Song from Ringmaster, this one is even better.
9. Everbody Rize - Wicked track.
10. Play With Me - Good.
11. Jake Jeckel - nothing to say.
12. [F*ck] The World - Awesome song, in this song, Shaggy says ... 93 times!
13. Shaggy Show - Awesome, features Snoop Dogg and some hilarious commercial skits.
14. Mad Professor - Good.
15. Assassins - Awesome.
16. Echo Side - Nah.
17. Nothing's Left - No, i don't like it.

This album comes with 3 different cases: yellow, red, and clear.

1-0 out of 5 stars This Band Sucks
I listened to a couple of ICP's songs and they are the worst band or group or what ever you want to call them i have ever heard in my life. Any one who would listen to ICP is a freek and stupid. I mean who in gods name would like a band that has there own wrestling league and wears make up is cool. I for sure think that is childish and is a sack of crap.

DON"T BUY ICP THEY SUCK!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD is their best collection!
This has got to be the best collection of ICP's rare songs. I really like "85 Bucks an Hour" and "Red Christmas." They are the best! If you want to have every ICP song ever, then this is the one to get. You will enjoy it! It has good songs and 2 remixes and the original version of "Piggy Pie." Although I think the remix of "Hokus Pokus" is horrible, the rest is fresh.

5-0 out of 5 stars Even More Dark Carnival Perfection!!!
Great, if you love'em. Garbage, if you hate'em. Still, this is a great mish-mash of rarities that never found a home on LP or EP and seals the notion that the Insane Clown Posse are indeed prolific. Arguably, the most prolific Rap group of the 90s! Christmas and Halloween tracks highlight the double set showing the duo can flawlessly drop appropriate rhymes for the holidays. The Halloween spirit suits ICP perfectly with spooky storytelling tracks like Halloween On Military Street, Dead Pumpkins and Mr. Rotten Treats. Plus, there is some well earned revulsion towards Xmas with tracks like Santa's a Fat B*tch and Red Christmas that will warm the heart of any holiday weary lout. Another plus is Hollywood Records un-approved version Piggy Pie with it's ultra violent lyrics that would make any self respecting Juggalo drool. More lost gems like House of Wonders, I Didn't Mean To Kill' Em, and Mental Warp just perplex juggalos, that they never found themselves on a proper album. If you can't get enough of the clown duo after you bought all their Jokers Cards this set will satisfy the void.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply... just awesome... you have to get it
This cd realized me that I am a real juggalo. Now I feel like I'm ready to join Dark Carnival family... and you know what? WE WANT YOU 2!! BUY IT AND JOIN US !! ... Read more
