The title track is a great start to the album. "When Margaret Comes to Town" is also catchy guitar rock, coming right before the album's huge hit, "Wild Night." Mellencamp covers Van Morrison and does a good job. The fact that it is sung as a duet with Me'Shell Ndegeocello makes it even more appealing. There are serious lyrics on this album (especially "Another Sunny Day 12/25"), but the music is generally upbeat.
Dance Naked lacks JM's famous story-songs, but it's still a gem in his body of work. The songs are nearly all three-minute ditties with catchy hooks and repetitive choruses. It's a nice CD to put in at a party.
Mellencamp needed to do something different in order to reenergize his career. With "Dance Naked," he did so, and was mostly successful.
Dear God, every song on this album is good. All nine of them shine with expert songwriting (even the remake of Van Morrison's "Wild Night") and superb instrumentalism. DANCE NAKED may not be Mellencamp's best (he's had a lot of time to record albums), but it's certainly right up there. A must for fans of the genre, or Mellencamp's legions of fans.
This album is not full of country-tinged, midwestern sounds like a lot of his former work. It is lighter and danceable. It's more "feel-good" music than I've heard him do in a long time. I think this is his best album to date.

This is really a good album, every song, from the hit "Wild Night" with Me'shell Ndegeocello is a good song, but why only 9 songs? It's not even like they are long. Read morePublished on Dec 16 2000 by Gilly Bean
From start to finish, this CD rocks. There is one slow song, but it is done so beautifully that it doesn't disturb the flow of the set. Read morePublished on Aug. 5 2000 by Robert L. Hinton
These songs are a little different than the norm for John. These are songs that you dance to in your kitchen on a friday night when nobody is looking. It is raw, true, free music. Read morePublished on July 5 2000
