Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 4/11/02, p.134
5 stars out of 5 - "...Ineluctable roots rock that's built for the modern world..."
Rolling Stone - p.83
4 stars out of 5 - "[I]t starts with the Heartbreakers' defining track, 'Refugee' - the closest thing to an anthem they'd yet recorded - and doesn't lose its stride after that."
Q - 8/01, p.154
4 stars out of 5 - "...A mus-have...This is Petty at the height of his powers and slowly on the turn..."
CMJ - 1/5/04, p.6
Ranked #4 in CMJ's "Top 20 Most-Played Albums of 1980".
Uncut (magazine) - p.108
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he playing is raw, the emotion likewise, Petty's first person songs starting to take on a classic universality....While Springsteen conjures the details of heartland America via an extensive libretto, Petty unshowily puts you right there."

It is encouraging to note that in compiling the superlative GREATEST HITS, four tracks from this blinder of an album were included, more than from any of his others. This is the ideal starting point for Petty students, (and then you can acquire all his other albums). For those unfamiliar, he is a rock 'n' roll Roger McGuinn. Those who are already aware of him will know that he has the knack of writing some of the best middle eight hooks ever heard, plays a Rickenbacker, and that he has an addictive voice and a knock-out supporting band. Is that enough?
