Uptown Magazine: Life Death Love And Freedom Review

John Mellencamp-Live Death Love And Freedom (Hear Music) B

It takes a couple of listens to truly hear this new album from America's last true rock troubadour, John Mellencamp, but it's worth the effort. Mellencamp has long since stopped trying to hit the charts as he used to regularly do with some ease all those years ago. Now he's satisfied singing about growing older, love between two people that really lasts and his views on being a conscious person in his time left on Earth. Without a hint of irony, he relays these tales with a journeyperson's deft touch and his band is right there with him, along with respected album producer T. Bone Burnett. Well worth a listen.
