EDITORS’ NOTES

Tom Petty's second LP with his pre-Heartbreakers band is his loosest in years. 2 charts Petty’s personal history of rock ’n’ roll with top-down ease, from Buddy Holly to the Byrds, with shades of country (“The Other Side of the Mountain”), psychedelic soul (“Hope”), and Petty’s own big-sky balladry (“Dreams of Flying”) in between. Most impressive is how high the quality is given how low the stakes—it takes confidence to sound this casual.

Great - one minor complaint

Please stop mastering for iTunes! The files are lossless now. It does not enhance the sound. I would rather hear it the way the bloody engineers intended😂

Pride of Gainesville

Glad to see this Florida band avoid the sophomore slump. Great musicians all around but the one to watch is the bass player, Tom Petty. Wouldn’t be surprised if he breaks out on his own someday.

Classic

Tom Petty & Co. has done it again, what a great opener Trailer is, can't wait to hear the whole album. I know it will be good, cause Tom Petty & friends always deliver nothing but classic songs. Long may he run. Cheers !!
