UK's Q Magazine: Life Death Love And Freedom LP Review
10.06.2008 - John Mellencamp
Life Death Love And Freedom
3 stars
By Paul Reeís

Among a crop of like minded American singer-songwriters to have emerged in the Ď70ís (Springsteen, Tom Petty, Warren Zevon), John Mellencamp is the forgotten man over here, and unfairly so. Life Death Love And Freedom (punctuation is for wimps, apparently) wonít return him to the US chart-topping status he once enjoyed, but itís his best work since 1993ís Human Wheels. Like that album itís a folksy, melancholy affair, producer T-Bone Burnett bringing the same intimate feel he gave to Robert Plant and Alison Kraussís Raising Sand. AS the title implies, it talks the big issues, sometimes at the expense of melody, but thereís a handful of very fine songs here.
