I've been a JM fan since I first heard Rain on the Scarecrow while sitting in a traffic jam when i was eighteen... almost eighteen years ago. Through the years, his albums have always provided me with honest passionate music... even though some albums resonate more than others. I think this album is his best since Human Wheels. Plus, Chuck D is an added bonus on the title cut. Topical, funny, inspired, introspective, groove filled, it... well... rocks.

In the true Mellencamp style, new sounds mix with old in this CD. The familiar ''Hey Hey''s are there, along with new voices and just a touch of rap. He's following Santana's style of mixing in new artists with his own music and comes up with a gritty, bluesy, jazzy combo that is all that we expect from him!

This album just missed the September cut-off for the 2002 grammy awards, so I see it at least in contention for the next one. The India Arie duet ''Perfect World'' has to be one of the best songs recorded in the last few years. Mellancamp's classic rock-meets-the-heartland sound still comes through with the same force is does today as it did twenty years ago. It's just one of those albums you put in the CD player, let it play, and you fall in love with.

As a friend of mine calls him, I've been a John Mellon Cougarcamp fan since American Fool. There have been some great Albums and some dodgey stuff. This one I'm glad to say takes over from Mr Happy go Lucky as his best since The Lonesome Jubelee. Some other Albums have had one great song and a lot of weakish tracks. Cuttin heads has one cracking song (peaceful world) and other great one's which keep growing on you (in our lives, women seem, just like you). I've been listening to this album driving home from work for about a month now and I never tire of it. It's uplifting, his new guitarist seems to be really good, the drummer is not up to Ken Aronoff's standards but then who is, he passes (in the studio, not so good live). The melodies and variety on the album are great I gave it four as I think he has produced marginally better albums (I would have given it 4.5) but if he keeps up this standard I'll be happy enough. Even the ballad with Trisha Yearwood is really good. I saw him live for the first time in Chicago in July 2002 and at 50 years old , he is still r.o.c.k.ing. Keep yer motor runnin' Johnny.

Wow! Still layin it down. John has put together a cd of bangin tracks produced by the one and only Dr Dre. While many fans may not be used to this change in style, we can now see where he's comin from. Check out ''Blood of my Vicitms'' and ''Locked down with a Glock'' - amazing.
