Here is an excerpt: "Mellencamp, commenting that “this is for the children and the education they’re not getting,” superbly delivered several numbers from his most recent albums, demonstrating that his newer material has greater depth even if lacking the pop hooks that made him a star..."

10/21/2010 - Read The Speaking Clock Revue by David Bauder. Here are some excerpts: "Mellencamp has flourished creatively since working with Burnett. And his choices reflected the husky-voiced troubadour he has now become, rather than the youthful hitmaker he was in the 1980s..."

10/18/2010 - Read Jim Sullivan's of the Boston Herald review of The Speaking Clock Revue Concert. Here is an excerpt: "There were highlights scattered everywhere, but certainly Mellencamp’s four new songs were up there. The heartland rocker has stripped away the fist-pumping arena rock and roughened up his sound, almost like Tom Waits.
