  1. Mellencamp sounds like he's just hitting his stride. [19 Oct 2001, p.82]
  2. Mellencamp's crackling, gorgeous Heartland pop resonates more now than ever--even if, at times, he sounds like he's ripping off his best guitar moves.
  3. Arguably Mellencamp's best album since 1987's The Lonesome Jubilee and 1983's Uh-Huh.
  4. 80
    Cuttin' Heads whizzes by in just under 40 minutes, with ridiculously charming acoustic pop, Latin-flavored sizzlers, and menacing love songs.
  5. While Cuttin' Heads hardly stretches him, Mellencamp dresses up his old tricks beautifully. [Mar 2002, p.125]
  6. A strong, cohesive and surprisingly soulful record.
  7. 20
    He still sounds like a blue-collar phoney trying to be a poor man's Springsteen. [May 2002, p.104]
