Tom Petty started out as a rocker. Indeed, he put out so many excellent albums for so long that it seemed he would never stumble. This album is a case in point. Often disregarded or ignored, it is in fact excellent, filled with little noticed gems. Here Petty is in his element, and what an element it is, mixing the country styling of The Byrds, the folk mastery of Brewer and Shipley with the rock sensibility of Creedence. He defines a new era in `classic rock'. Rightly placed alongside mainstream rock giants, Petty is like them but definitely has own style, his own version of Southern charm. Check out the propulsive `Need To Know' and the driving `When The Time Comes'. Equally good are `No Second Thoughts', the title track and `Restless' all of which are quite smooth. Petty also evidence a lyrical subtly that marked him for greatness, even at this early stage, check out `Listen To Her Heart' which expresses supreme trust and confidence in a lover, not exactly a typical stance for a rock song. The great thing about Petty is his music never ages, it sounds just as fresh and exciting today as it did when the album came out, if anything, it has improved with age.
