Artist discography


The Heartbreakers is the coolest backup-band on earth. I mean, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Scott Thurston and Steve Ferrone in the same band. Phew. And then Petty got the great taste to work with the powerpop hero Jon Brion on the album as well. So what the hell about the album then. Well, what do you think! Its a GREAT album. The best album since "Into The Great Wide Open"album, and the best song he ve done since "Learning To Fly" from 1991 is on here. Its called "Have Love With Travel" and is a song that you play 5 times in a row and just scream out in happiness. Mike Campbells fantastic guitarlicks (he got the best guitarsound in the world) and Petty in a superb mode. Well add a groovy Hammond from Mr Tench and we re quite ahead. A F****n masterpiece is what it is. Well there are plenty more tunes on this album that are REALLY good. The title track "The last DJ" is one and the softer "Blue Sunday" in a country-esque costume is another. Well as I said, there are many more. Last one on here "Cant Sto The Sun" smells Petty from the early 80 s (the Hard Promises era). "Money Becomes King" smells Paul McCartney when he s good. And the pissed-off Petty in "Joe" is another amazing track. Well, get the grip folks. Its a must. And the nice multimedia section with 2 videos and a lot of promophotos is something I wanna see more of from other artists as well. Petty rules.
