CD Reviews

Garage rock? Power pop? Adolescent shadow? all that and so m
Bachelier | Ile de France | 03/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the genre of "mood music" rock few songs can match Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers "Breakdown" and "Wilde One, Forever" with their restrained time registers and the jazz like precision of the instrument voices, with each taking a lead and then dropping back to chorus through the song cycle. Mike Campbell, known to cognisceti. as one of the world's most technically gifted and underappreciated guitar players (along with Jethro Tull's Martin Barre) shines here on leads everyone thinks Petty is playing. "American Girl" shows off the full dimensions of back to back Rickenbachers on lead and rhythm. Perhaps we inflate the significance of those few albums we could afford in our youth, and their repetition driven by economic deprivation and the horror of pay-ola sludge pumped from the radio reinforces the perception of their greatness. But when one of my current students overheard me playing this album they said "cool new sound...who is that?" Proving forever that accurate garage rock crossed with power pop energy never looses its appeal through the generations."
Tom Petty songs never get outdated

"I grew near Gainesville, and have seen him perform many times. Tom Petty is a great songwriter."
One hell of a debut album....

"Back in '76 when this was released, "Breakdown" and "American Girl" were the tunes that made me take notice and want this LP. Upon first listen I discovered an LP full of good tunes. Particular favorites of mine--"Strangered in the Night", "Luna", "Fooled Again(I Don't Like It) and "The Wild One, Forever". Tom Petty has released some fine albums over a long and distinguished career but I really don't think he's ever topped this one."
