Album Review

Universal's 20th Century Masters: Millennium Collection has never been intended to be the definitive word on an artist; from its inception it was designed as a brief sampling of their biggest hits. Even so, John Mellencamp's 2007 entry in the series is surprisingly light on his classic '80s hits, with half of these ten songs dating after The Lonesome Jubilee. This leaves plenty of room for the biggest of the big tunes — "Small Town," "Pink Houses," "Jack & Diane," "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.," "Cherry Bomb" — but there's still a gaping hole where "Crumblin' Down," "The Authority Song," "Lonely Old Night," "Paper in Fire," and especially "Hurts So Good" should be. In their place are latter-day songs, ranging from "Key West Intermezzo (I Saw You First)" to "Walk Tall," many of which are good, but aren't quite as iconic. So, for those songs, listeners will need to look elsewhere, but for those who want a brief overview of it all, with most of the big hits, this is fine.

Throughout his career, John Mellencamp has had to fight, whether it was for the right to record under his own name or for respect as an artist. Of course, he never made it easy on himself. Mellencamp began his career in the late '70s as a Bruce Springsteen clone called Johnny Cougar. As his career progressed, his music became more distinctive, developing into a Stonesy blend of hard rock and folk-rock. His musical development coincided with his growth in popularity -- by the time "Hurts So Good"...
