The Screen Door Blog: Ten Best Records/Albums of the 2010
12.29.2010 - The Screen Door..with Anthony Kuzminski:

John Mellencamp - No Better Than This #3
John Mellencamp may be at his creative crest over the last few years and No Better Than This is a living example. While Mellencamp may be leaning his sound towards the past, heís capturing the ache of the world in lyrics that are full of cold fury and pleas for redemption. Nine of the albumís thirteen songs were cut in Sun Studio in Memphis and amidst the spare instrumentation and mono sound you can feel the ambiance of those great Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis records from the 1950ís. The restrained instrumentation helps entrench the lyrical emotions. Itís a rich record, steeped in the folk and blues of our countries past with themes that pinch you in the present.
