3.0 out of 5 stars It rocks, but Mellencamp is at his most bored, August 26, 2009
This review is from: Whenever We Wanted (Audio CD)
I guess this album was better than I thought originally, but no hits from this album, or at least none of them got any airplay in Philadelphia where I was living at the time. I feel that Mellencamp was searching for a direction to take this album, but never seemed to get it going anywhere. "Love and Happiness" is supposedly about the Gulf War, and what America was going through which is a dramatic turn from his "Rah-Rah America" attitude. Here he's sounding embittered, and angry, and let me tell you those attitudes can only get you so far, and then people will forget about you. "Need A Little Love" sounds like a "Oh Come On People" song like he wants us to get back to the attitude of the 60's. The rest of this album is forgettable, and it shows that Mellencamp wasn't out of his slump yet.
