Album Review

While the young Tom Petty is remembered for some remarkable singles, the truth is that the albums were rarely consistent. Until, that is, Jeff Lynne's production moved in - Full Moon Fever and Into The Great Wide Open were great from start to finish. Petty has made no albums of note for a long while now, with one disappointing release after another.

Now, reunited with Jeff Lynne, we have a return to great songs, well produced (if more spare than we've been used to) and with a good amount of Heartbreakers fire (despite this being his third solo album - the first since 1994's Wildflowers). The album works best as an album, lacking any standout songs.

Is it as good as the under-rated Wildflowers? No. Is it Full Moon Fever? No, and a long way from it. But, a good Tom Petty album is something to be cherished, and this is a lot better than recent albums like The Last DJ.

Rating 7/10
