John Cougar Mellencamp 2013 - Ghost Brothers of Darkland County

John Cougar Mellencamp has produced an innovative work that has a lot of potential appeal–if it weren’t for the music this would be a great album! For some reason I found myself bored with this. The ingredients for success are there: the CD comes with a little booklet written by terrormeister Stephen King; very talented guest artists; and Mellencamp’s musical ability. Maybe I’ll have to listen to it again to enjoy the way the music fits with the narrative between tracks.
