Album Review

On his sophomore effort, Uncle Kracker (born Matthew Shafer) steps out from behind Kid Rock's turntable to prove he's a viable artist on his own. The album No Stranger to Shame is a collection of willowy jangle rock with Motown and rap influences thrown in. It kicks off with the Motown feel of "I Do" and continues through a journey of country on "Letter to My Daughters" and funky rap on "Keep It Comin'." No Stranger to Shame is vastly different from his rap-riddled debut, Double Wide. His full-time employer, Kid Rock, is only credited as executive producer, unlike Double Wide, on which the rap-rocker made multiple appearances. Uncle Kracker proves he can sing throughout No Stranger to Shame. His takes on "Drift Away," a duet with Dobie Gray, and "Baby Don't Cry" showcase Uncle Kracker's blues sensibility. No Stranger to Shame should keep radio busy for quite some time — most of the songs remain in the listener's mind long after the CD ends.

Very Good Stuff!

I think too many people miss the point with Uncle Kracker. It's not about every song being able to be "radio-ready", it's about stretching music boundaries and making music that is both "feel-able" and different. Whether he ever turns into a music icon or not is unimportant compared to the fact the he is willing to stretch himself and mix genres within songs to create a truly unique audio experience. I think his talent is severely under-rated and this CD is definitely a top-tier CD. Listen to all the songs, then go back and listen to "I Don't Know" and "Letters To My Daughters" -- the real-ness in the songs makes them twice as nice. And remember... talent trumps all.

Uncle Kracker is a great rock artist!

my favorite song in this is "memphis soul song"

After serving as DJ for his hometown chum Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker (born Matthew Shafer) stepped out from behind the turntables to release his debut solo album, Double Wide, in 2001. Uncle Kracker had performed alongside Rock since 1994, and both favored a combination of funky, post-grunge rock with a hip-hop aesthetic. Double Wide also sported a polished pop single entitled "Follow Me," and the album went double platinum on the strength of that Top 10 hit. Kid Rock and Uncle Kracker were practically...
