5.0 out of 5 stars Petty's Comeback - Terrific album overall, September 6, 2004
By 
This review is from: Full Moon Fever (Audio CD)
I am such a big Petty fan that it was hard to give some of his prior albums less than five stars. But okay, I admit it, he had lost some of his brilliance. Full Moon Fever represents a thorough and effective restoration of Petty's rule over American rock music.

Perhaps this sounds like something of an oxymoron, but let me give this a try to sum up the album: In FMF, Tom Petty ties together a lot of the themes of his earlier albums and states implicitly a lot of the themes of ambivolence and confusion of modern life that he'd alluded to in the 70s and 80s. (My sister got lucky, married a yuppie, took him for all he was worth/Now she's a swinger, dating a singer/I can't decide which is worse.) But, as a subsequent line reads, "But not me, baby/I've got you to save me". Tom Petty, you save me every day and you conveniently also saved your career with this one.
