Uh-Huh [Bonus Tracks]

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Since American Fool illustrated that John Cougar was becoming an actual songwriter, it's only proper that he reclaimed his actual last name, Mellencamp, for the follow-up, Uh-Huh. After all, now that he had success, he wanted to be taken seriously, and Uh-Huh reflects that in its portraits of brokenhearted life in the Midwest and its rumbling undercurrent of despair. Although his lyrics still have the tendency to be a little too vague, they are more effective here than ever before, as is his music; he might not have changed his style at all -- it's still a fusion of the Stones and Springsteen -- except that he now knows how to make it his own.

Since American Fool illustrated that John Cougar was becoming an actual songwriter, it's only proper that he reclaimed his actual last name, Mellencamp, for the follow-up, Uh-Huh. After all, now that he had success, he wanted to be taken seriously, and Uh-Huh reflects that in its portraits of brokenhearted life in the Midwest and its rumbling undercurrent of despair. Although his lyrics still have the tendency to be a little too vague, they are more effective here than ever before, as is his music; he might not have changed his style at all -- it's still a fusion of the Stones and Springsteen -- except that he now knows how to make it his own. Uh-Huh runs out of steam toward the end, but the first half -- with the dynamic rocker "Crumblin' Down," his best protest song, "Pink Houses," the punky "Authority Song," the melancholy "Warmer Place to Sleep," and the garage rocker "Play Guitar" -- makes the record his first terrific album. [Universal's 2005 CD reissue appends a bonus track, an acoustic version of "Pink Houses."]

    Uh Huh the Walls Come Crumblin Down!!

    The first time I ever saw John Mellencamp was on tv with the video of Crumblin Down. When I play this Remaster, I play it as loud as it can go and the sound is amazing!! It brings me right back to that moment I saw him slide down that ladder in his blue jeans and white t-shirt! I was hooked from that moment on, and more than 20 years later I love this album more than I did then! With a strong drumbeat and searing guitar riffs, this Remaster gives new meaning to the words "when the walls come crumblin down!!"
