Description:

Known to friends and family as Matt Schafer, Kracker is the man behind the turntables in Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker band. Now this kickin' DJ is ready to step out from the decks to take a piece of well-earned spotlight for himself. Produced by Kid Rock and engineered by Mike Bradford (known for his work with Madonna and Anita Baker), Kracker's eponymous Top Dog/Lava/Atlantic debut was recorded on the back of the tour bus during Kid Rock's co-headlining Summer '99 trek with Limp Bizkit. The laidback Yin to Kid Rock's thunderous metal Yang, Kracker serves up a tasty serving of Detroit rock 'n roll stew, blending a little motown, country, southern rock and hip-hop. This diverse musical mix is topped off with the DJ/MC's own flowing, loose-limbed, story-telling raps. Certified Multi-Platinum (2 times) by the RIAA. (11/01)

1I'm Screwed  May 27, 2001

I'll be the first to admit it. I got taken. When I bought this CD I was hoping for a whole CD filled with "Follow Me" type songs, but to no avail. I find this CD offensive and, really bad. Please don't buy this CD...just buy the "Follow Me" single. There is no reason to buy a CD like this, and they just put out one nice, fine sounding, calm song, but filled the rest of the CD with JUNK!!!!! Don't buy this CD unless you sat on top of the microwave(or lived near power lines) when you were a kid!

2if you're not a rap fan, don't be suckered  Feb 20, 2001
By Amazon Customer "scopejock"
any non-rap fans reading these reviews, there's only 1 song on this cd that's not rap. the song "follow me" is a beautiful catchy pop song which i heard on the radio. after reading customer reviews saying it wasn't just like kid rock, i bought it. if you are a rap fan & want it, i'll be selling my copy shortly after i burn a copy of "follow me".

1Disappointed  Apr 10, 2001

I had hoped for more of the "Follow Me" type music. Not being a Kid Rock fan, I was disappointed with all but 3 of the songs

5Is that Kracker with a C? No, Kracker with a K!  Jul 08, 2000

I got this one as soon as it came out. There is no mistake that Kid Rock had a lot of influence on this CD. People have asked me about the CD and how it is, I have put it this way... It is basically the lighter side of Kid Rock. However, it still rocks and is really good. Some say that it is Kid Rock singing the whole time. True that he is on a lot of songs, but Uncle Kracker sounds very similar to him. Don't be fooled. All you Kid Rock and Twisted Brown Trucker fans will definately like this one. Those of you who think Kid Rock is too hard, definately get this one. It is a good CD. My only complaint is that it is not long enough. A few more songs would really kick. Good songs include, "Heaven" (which is my favorite), "What'Chu Lookin' At", "Better Days" and "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah."

5Uncle Kracker is one talented guy!  Jul 13, 2000
By J. R. Norton
Uncle Kracker can do it all. Not a Kid Rock wannabe, but rather a man who is similar to Kid Rock who contributes to the mellower side of the rap/rock genre without sounding like he's a desperate rip-off trying to follow the latest trend. Great tracks include "Yeah Yeah Yeah," "What Ch'you Lookin' At," "Heaven," "Who's Your Uncle," and my personal favorite, "Follow Me." The whole thing is just a great listening experience. If you have any doubts about Uncle Kracker's ability or his legitimacy, I hope I've put them to rest. Go buy this CD! All fans of rap/rock should love it, especially if you're tired of the furious pounding beats that can sometimes numb your senses. It's a great departure from the heaviest of rap/rock, as it's mellower than the rest without hurting the genre's credibility. I say it's worth the money.
