John Mellencamp - Plain Spoken (2014)
I took a bit of a punt on this record. While not my usual cup of tea, I do recognise that I need to "grow up" a bit and find a softer, more lyrical side to my musical universe. Besides, what have I got to lose at $6.98 for a nice slab of vinyl!?
It didn't take long to allay any fears of making a poor judgement call - it's a bit of a cracker actually.
Softly spoken like some old, husky blues man, and wearing that big heart of his on his sleeve, he's a great story teller. The politicians and bankers cop the most. I'd love to hear his post-election "tribute" to Trump.
