I posted a review of John's new album Plain Spoken on iTunes and wanted to share of with everyone on John's forum.  I encourage and challenge everyone here to do the same.  if we all want to see John have a #1 album, this might help the album get there.

Here's my iTunes review.

The music on Johnís album Plain Spoken is rich and warm.  Lyrically John put his heart and soul into each song.  If you like Bob Dylan, youíll find some similarities in Johnís songwriting.  The music is gentle and touching.  The gruffness of his voice blends perfectly with the instruments.  Yeah, Plain Spoken is not a rock record like Scarecrow and there are no Jack And Dianís on the record but what we do have is a beautifully crafted album.  The songs move the listener and are touching.  If an artist has moved you with their music or lyrics, theyíve achieved their goal.  John Mellencamp has done that with Plain Spoken.  Every song on this recording is a highlight.

This is my review on Amazon.....

This record..IS..The Human condition that is beautifully written and crafted by one of the best songwriters ever, Mr. John Mellencamp. You can hear how much his band respects his song & words by their music. Truly is a work of art.
