Format:Audio CD
What an album! This is an underrated masterpiece that no one would call one of Petty's best albums when compared to hit-laden fare like "Damn the Torpedoes" and "Full Moon Fever," but that's only because it never got the attention it deserved. In a perfect world this album would have been embraced as every other previous Heartbreaker's record was; but thanks to a relative lack of anthums, as well as radio and record companies moving away from pushing new music from classic artists, this artistic firecracker was virtually ignored.

Seriously, some 30-plus-year-old acts have put out some of their best, most critically albums in the twilight of their careers, but radio and their record companies would rather push the latest pseudo-rock trend band or slut-turned-singer than give this music a chance. You can't blame them when even their own fans constantly say stupid stuff like, "I like their old stuff," but never give the new stuff a chance. Why? Cuz they didn't hear the latest hit on the radio. A vicious cycle. If their was any justice Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising" would have had as many radio singles and sold as many copies now as "Born In the USA" did in 1984. And that's just one, big example. But I digress. It didn't help Petty that, like a lot of great soundtracks, this album was attached to a little seen and not very good movie. But the music certainly stands on its own. "Walls" and "Climb That Hill," the two, albeit minor, singles are great mid-tempo rockers that were probably as good a choice as any to represent this album to the fans. Again, it would have been great if the record company and radio pushed them enough to allow them to be heard.

As good - and Heartbreaker-ish - as these two songs are, there are deeper cuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars let them go December 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
i've read far too many reviews of this record that keep saying, "it's okay, but it's no "full moon fever" or "damn the torpedoes". i own every one of tom petty's records from his debut to "the last dj" and i will continue to buy his records for the same reason, tom writes what he wants to and his artistic integrity is what keeps him going and keeps him fresh.

"she's the one" is one of his finest recordings, not only because the songwriting is superb and original, but also for the fact that it ISN'T "full moon fever". give this record a chance and listen to it the way it deserves to be listened to, without expectations of anything but good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars It ain't like anything else.... June 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
By far TP's most interesting, and unfortunately, under-rated release. This is my personal favourite - I will not repeat what's already been said. Read on for some great reviews.

This one's with me, everywhere I go.

I can only thank God it was not too late.

4.0 out of 5 stars Under-Rated Gem January 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the most under-rated album in Petty's catalog. "Walls" is simply a great pop song, and "Change the Locks" never gets old for me. I don't understand why these songs never get played on the radio, but maybe that's why it's the Petty album I have in my player the most - I haven't heard these songs to death on classic rock radio for years. If you are a Petty fan and somehow missed this release, pick it up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting just to hear "Walls" July 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Walls" is one of the alltime great Tom Petty songs; so good is it that it gets two performances on this record, a loose-limbed version with harmonies by Lindsey Buckingham and a violinist, and a tighter-focused version. But if you avoided this record thinking it was a soundtrack, you will not have heard this great song. Walls is not the only worthwhile tune on this enjoyable disk. "Grew Up Fast" is a great song and performance, and his cover version of Lucinda Williams' "Change the Locks" emphasizes the exaggerated humor rather than the desperation Lucinda conveys in her version. Overall, the record might've seemed like a footnote to the great "Wildflowers" CD, but "Walls" makes it essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wedding song! January 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Let me just say that I like Tom Petty's stuff in general, but am by no means a Tom Petty expert or "super fan". I just think he makes good music. That being said, I think this is a great album that grows and grows on you like other Tom Petty cds. Angel Dream is hypnotic. Once in 1999 I played it on repeat for hours on end after a break-up and it was somehow very comforting. 4 years later it became my husband & I's "first dance" song at our wedding. AND when I heard the instrumental "Hope On Board" I could picture someone walking down the aisle to it - which is exactly what I did. It's a short beautiful, quiet piece that fit perfectly into the ceremony (Although people do look at me funny when I tell them I walked down the aisle to a Tom Petty song!) And now 3 years later I sing this song at bedtime to my 3 year old son, who knows all the words and calls it "the wedding song". I believe someone else compared it to a lullabye and that is a good way to describe it. Okay, so that's JUST Angel Dream...the rest of the album is great, too! A good mix of different tempos and like others have said pay no attention to the fact that it's a movie soundtrack -it stands on it's own.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY FAVORITE TOM PETTY ALBUM August 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I wrote this review a few months back and was lambasted with negative votes. Apparently some people have a real problem with this album? I don't know. Today (2/8/06) I notice that a few people have stepped in and given this good reviews. So, I'm back, to drop a little more positive ink. THE BEST! Though rarely does Petty release a flop, I think some of the most original material he ever put out was on this one. GREW UP FAST, jams harder than anything else.. ANGEL DREAM is one of the most inspiring love songs I've ever heard,, SUPERNATURAL RADIO is a great proggressive dirge. This stuff is all amazing. BECK cover, great.. Lucinda Williams cover, great. The cover songs have awesome lyrics that fit the theme of the original songs.. which all have awesome lyrics as well. Some of the tracks just rock out, and some of the tracks get the wheels spinning all around. NAY SAYERS... What the F? How can you be such a TP fan and bash this record, I gotta say, for what it is (a romantic comedy soundtrack) it's AMAZING. Five stars. Maybe more.
