A Meditation on John Mellencamp’s Life, Death, Love and Freedom
A few years ago, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States asked me to moderate a panel discussion at the embassy on “Rock & Roll as a Force for Freedom on Both Sides of the Iron Curtain.” The panel was to consist of the ambassador (András Simonyi), Tommy Ramone and me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mellencamp Bares All February 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Dance Naked was a surprise release by John Mellencamp. The album was released only a few months after Human wheels and was spurred on by his biggest hit of the 90's (and since Cherry Bomb in 1988), the Van Morrison cover "Wild Night". Me'shell NdegeOcello duets with Mr. Mellencamp and her pulsating bass provides a strong backbone to the song. The party atmosphere of that song is in sharp contrast to the rest of the album. The album's title is appropriate as the other songs are barer in nature. The title track, "Another Sunny Day 12/25", "L.U.V." and "The Big Jack" are especially strong. coupled with Human Wheels, Dance Naked find Mr. Mellencamp will to expose himself to the public.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too short! December 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is really a good album, every song, from the hit "Wild Night" with Me'shell Ndegeocello is a good song, but why only 9 songs? It's not even like they are long. The longest is only 3 minutes 37 seconds. But, despite that fact, this album rocks. And in the tradition of Springsteen his songs tell stories of everyday life... "Brothers" is a Cain and Abel type of story, "Another Sunny Day" is a poignant song in the folk style about the state of the world. This album is so good, it really makes you wish it was at least one-more-song longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just too short John! But not a bad CD December 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Thanks for reading. Barely a half hour long ( JUST OVER 29 MINS ), this CD is way too short!

Has some great songs though. I really like the title track and " When margaret comes to town"

Not as gritty as some of his work, but most fans will appreciate the style and content as familiar, solid music from this great singer/ songwriter.

My CD also came with a bonus CD, that had another 5 tracks ( live mixs, acoustic versions etc ) on it, making this a worthwhile purchase for me. (I admit I rarely listen to that though.)

Overall for fans only I think

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible August 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
From start to finish, this CD rocks. There is one slow song, but it is done so beautifully that it doesn't disturb the flow of the set. 'LUV' is one of the highest energized songs he has done in a while. The prementioned slow song 'another sunny day' is just wonderful. Most Mellencamp CD's have 1 or 2 songs I could skip through. Not this one. The only thing bad about it is it's only 30 minutes long. Keep rockin' John and co.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stark Naked July 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
1994's Dance Naked was a surprise release by John Mellencamp. The album was released only a few months after Human wheels and was spurred on by his biggest hit of the 90's, the Van Morrison cover "Wild Night". Me'shell NdegeOcello duets with Mr. Mellencamp and her pulsating bass provides a strong backbone to the song. The party atmosphere of that song is in sharp contrast to the rest of the album. The album's title is appropriate as the other songs are barer in nature. The title track, "Another Sunny Day 12/25", "L.U.V." and "The Big Jack" are especially strong. Coupled with Human Wheels, Dance Naked finds Mr. Mellencamp having a willingness to expose his emotional self to the public.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mellencamp never fails to please! May 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
DANCE NAKED is a great rock/folk album. Take "Brothers," a story about two brothers who just don't get along...in fact hate each other. Or the title track, which remains romantic even though he's basically asking his girl to strip for him. Or "L.U.V.", a politcally-aimed song of what's wrong in the world. Or "Another Sunny Day", about the future and a man's hope how it will all turn out. Or...
Dear God, every song on this album is good. All nine of them shine with expert songwriting (even the remake of Van Morrison's "Wild Night") and superb instrumentalism. DANCE NAKED may not be Mellencamp's best (he's had a lot of time to record albums), but it's certainly right up there. A must for fans of the genre, or Mellencamp's legions of fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Updated Sound for John Mellencamp June 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a good album full of good tracks - no filler material. This is something different for John Mellencamp; a different kind of sound, and I like it. I bought the CD for the song "Wild Night", which I think is the best track on the album. I also like "Dance Naked" a lot, but all of the tracks are good.
This album is not full of country-tinged, midwestern sounds like a lot of his former work. It is lighter and danceable. It's more "feel-good" music than I've heard him do in a long time. I think this is his best album to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Music July 5, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These songs are a little different than the norm for John. These are songs that you dance to in your kitchen on a friday night when nobody is looking. It is raw, true, free music. Singing to these songs comes naturally because they connect to your mind. What can I say, the man has talent.

This album was recording in 14 days and is one of my least favourite Mellencamp album. The production is fine, the songs do not sound like demos, they just don't do much for me. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Awful. Full of Filler.
John Mellencamp sounds tired and this cd sounds like a conglomeration of cuts that weren't up to snuff for earlier albums (like "Human Wheels" which was bad in its own right). Read more

Put aside his wacked on politics, this CD sucks.

I got it free at a garage sale and I should have left it in the free bin.
