Scarecrow (1985)


Somewhere between the lyrical working class heroism of Springsteen, and the lyrical moral preachiness of Dylan lies Mellencamp's Scarecrow, which is all working class patriotism and morality. Why isn't it as revered as material by those two then? It's the lyrics, mainly. Where does that leave Scarecrow? Occasionally it rocks but not like Springsteen. And there's the lyrics which are harder to I don't know accept than Dylan's. But such comparisons are mostly unfair. The album does its job and you'll probably enjoy listening to it
