Review

I always have the same high expectations when Tom Petty and the boys come with new material. It is legitimate because they never really did anything bad. Less good sometimes, but never bad. He is a true hero and the main part of his music catalogue is fantastic. The problem with this album is that I had huge expectations and the album doesn't come up to the level I expected. It's quite far from the "Learning To Fly" sound that I love. The word "Mojo" is a word that is very related to blues-era in the musichistory and it is a Tom Petty with blues influences we meet on the album. That is not something new though. Much of the 80th century-material sounds like this (compare with Stevie Nicks-cooperation "Stop Draggin 'My Heart Around" for example). The "Mojo" album is safe, reliable but never remarkable. Sometimes really good, but sometimes it also becomes a bit boring. And that's a pity when you know what this man is able to make. Just listen to the stuff from the early 90's and you know what I mean...
