by Tom Petty
Released: Apr 2010
This album, which is Tom Petty's best in years, will blow away even his most hardcore fans. Eight years separates Mojo and The Last DJ, Petty's last release featuring the Heartbreakers. Interestingly enough, the record sounds a lot like his southern-rock project Mudcrutch, albeit filtered through the California haze of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's Deja Vu. Rock music doesn't get any more classic than the thick organ, jazzy guitar licks and floating harmonies of "First Flash of Freedom," "The Trip to Pirate's Cove" and "Something Good Coming." Great stuff for sure.
