Soon after his heart attack, John Mellencamp released this very creative album. The artwork sets the tone: circus acts! Indeed, it’s quite a performance, it rocks but it is extremely varied and surprising in many ways. I feel, this is the first album in which Mellencamp steps away from that Americana rock that made him famous, to explore more modern and alternative ways of making his songs come alive. There are all sorts of influences here and even some weird interludes! A list of instrumentation might give you a clue as to how diverse it all is: dobro, mellotron, organ, mandolin, chamberlain, harmonica, loops, vibes, violin, slide guitar, tuba, trombone, saxophone, some programming by Moe Z. etc.
I find the album very well produced, I remember being surprised at first, but it did not sound fake. I really like over half of the 12 songs, in fact 2 of them are amongst my favourite Mellencamp tracks of all time.
I still often listen to ‘This May Not Be the End of the World’ ***(*) it’s like some good seventies rhythm’n’blues by the Stones or Clapton, but slowed down with a modern beat; great to clap and dance to; husky vocals with happy sweet backing adding some depth by contrast. It has been co-written with George Green and so has ‘Circling Around the Moon’ *** on which the Stones influence is even more evident, with an addictive riff; however, we also get a bit of an Asian sound in the strings arrangement and the unusual structure of the song keeps us listening: it slows down and takes up again several times, while the tone of the vocals varies too, from unsure to clearer and back again. I’m not quite certain about the meaning behind the words on this album, but it hasn’t taken anything away for me: I quote JM, “The heart devours what it cannot understand.

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 July 2012
Format: Audio CD
This is a brilliant CD but if you come in to it 'cold' so to speak as I did you need to play it a few times to 'get' what John Mellencamp is getting at.

But "Key West Intermezzo (I Saw You First)" was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and
"Just Another Day" was nominated for a 1998 Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. So that gives you an insight into the fact that it really does have worth and is well worth an investment.

In this CD Mellencamp has strayed from his Rock and Roll/ eletric Folk Rock style (think of early Bruce Springstein) and he has used trip-hop drum loops and samples to expand his music.

It works. at time the CD feels like a musical journey with talked intros but there really is some wonderful music in there but you really have to work at it so to speak.

Amazon do not provide a clear track listing so I have included one.

1. Overture
2. Jerry
3. Key West Intermezzo (I Saw You First)
4. Just Another Day
5. This May Not Be the End of the World
6. Emotional Love
7. Mr. Bellows
8. The Full Catastrophe
9. Circling Around the Moon
10. Large World Turning
11. Jackamo Road
12. Life Is Hard
13. What If I Came Knocking?

Some albums sound like group of songs thrown together randomly. Some work together towards a story, like Tommy or Kilroy Was Here. But, this album is different than most. Mr. Happy Go Lucky is a collection of songs that have a sound that is different than what you hear with most modern rock, and they all hang together in a melodious way.
Overall, I found this to be a wonderfully different listening experience. The tunes are not toe-tapping pop music, but are enthralling, and make for a fascinating music session. I really enjoy this album, and give it my highest recommendations.

I've only played this a couple of times and still trying to get into it.
Not so immediately likeable as some others like Scarecrow for instance.
Arrived on time.
