There hasn't been much talk about this. T Bone Burnett produced John Mellencamp's new album. It is worth checking out because of a high definition recording process Burnett calls "Code" which is on the included DVD. This is the first release using what looks like a real improvement and the antithesis of overly compressed CD, MP-3 etc. etc. No one seems to be excited about this, but the DVD sounded damn' good on the home theater. Listen first, even if you don't like Mellencamp (I am usually lukewarm) and then let's discuss.
