1  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / New Album: When do we learn more? on: September 22, 2018, 04:54:07 am
Other People's Stuff looks to be an album of covers. Glad to see JM has come back so quickly with another album.  Interested to see how this will be different from Trouble No More..

Any update when we learn what the songs are, themes, stories, etc?

Thanks!  Big lesson here.. Make sure you know the seating situation of your arena. I have 3rd row.

Here's the link to the seating in Peoria: https://seatgeek.com/venues/peoria-civic-center/seating-chart

Feeling misled. Spent over $500 for 2 tickets.

How do we fix this?

I'm really enjoying the new recording.  I put it at the top of JM recordings for the past ten years.  As I spend more time with this album I find myself with a few questions and one blaring observation:

Plain Spoken Question #1:
What are the words on the wall behind JM on the photo cover?

Plain Spoken Question #2
In "The Company of Cowards" Who is 'Mr. Struggle Must Go On' and 'The man in the moon'?


My big observation:
Before this album was released, I requested that JM write one love song.  A song that couples could say "that's our song", dance to, one that could be played at their wedding.  He's written many great songs, but the one song missing in his amazing catalog is a love song.  After spending a fair amount of time with "Plain Spoken" I think JM is telling us he has no love song in him.  That gear does not exist. "The Isolation of Mister" pretty much says that door is closed.

Its unfortunate because with his music and songwriting skills, he could create a really good song for this category.
