john mellencamp human wheelsBy Scott Goldfine

Heartland singer-songwriter John Mellencamp’s newest offering packs a satisfying array of rock tunes. Subscribing to a sound rife with exotic instruments, Mellencamp sings about spirituality, apathy, greed and fond memories.

This LP strikes a keen balance between R.E.M. and Bruce Springsteen, and the captivating “Sweet Evening Breeze” is destined to become an album-rock radio staple.
