5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute classic 1 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
So many great songs on this album, it is almost a 'best of' but much cooler than that because it has album tracks which work well amoung the hits, which is pretty much a dream combo for an album I think. I love putting on this and Fleetwood Mac's 'Tusk' and imagining late 70's California. 'Even the Losers', 'Don't Do Me Like That', 'Refugee' great singles but tracks like 'You Tell Me' have a wonderful laid back swagger. The Heartbreakers are one of those amazing backing bands, a bit like Elvis Costello's 'Attractions'. This and 'Hard Promises' are essential purchases, soundtrack to sunny days.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Petty hits his stride... 29 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is not to say that Damn The Torpedoes is better than the self-titled debut or You're Gonna Get It, but rather that it sounds more confident and more accomplished than either of its predecessors. While the first two albums were both excellent, with plenty of sneer and youthful swagger, they still felt (to my mind at least) like a band still finding their feet and exploring their vast potential.
Highlight on this album include Refugee, Don't Do Me Like That and my personal favourite Even The Losers, but the whole album is brilliant, and is probably the most consistent effort Petty has produced to date. It blends nicely the southern leer of Southern Accents, the mythological/nostalgic element of Into The Great Wide Open, the power and kick of Full Moon Fever and the personal touch of Hard Promises.
It's hard to advocate Tom Petty if you haven't heard him beyond saying that he's absolutely fantastic, and without doubt as far as I am concerned the most consistent rocker of the last 25-30 years, and Damn The Torpedoes sees him mature into the great artist he has long since proven himself to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars PUT UP OR SHUT UP TIME 18 Nov 2010
By Paul M VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Q : When is a "Deluxe Edition", not a " Deluxe Edition"?

A : When its the Reissue of Damn the Torpedoes!

With both discs totalling a combined running time of 68 minutes, its clear that a single disc would have sufficed, and Universal are really stretching their definition on this release. That said, if you can pick up this release cheaply enough, then there is just about enough interesting stuff to justify owning this musical upgrade.

Damn the Torpedoes was in effect Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers put up or shut up album, following a stunning self titled debut, and lukewarmly received follow up in You're Gonna Get It [ actually a fine album, somewhat overshadowed by its predecessor]. It was time to deliver, and truly make the leap to arenas, and ultimately the focus of Damn the Torpedoes is that of huge choruses, raging guitars, and fine musicianship in a set that delivered on the Heartbreakers early promise. With the anthemic opener Refugee [pretty much the bands signiture song], and a set of fine polished southern rock, here was an album that proved American rock in the late Seventies was finally accepting the challenge of the trendy new wave and beginning to forge its own path through a turbulant musical climate.

On this "Deluxe Edition", disc one offers a remastered version of the original album, which in some ways adds a certain gloss, that was not evident on my earlier cd version. Now the guitars are higher in the mix, with Stan Lynch's drumming driving the music along very effectively [ especially on Century City ], and the radio friendly production job is fully realised, showing just how much attention was paid to the task in hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn The Torpedoes 29 Dec 2007
By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
'Damn The Torpedoes' is Pettys third album and was written at a time when he was fighting a legal battle with his record company. The anger and frustrations are clearly evident on this album and make it all the more forceful and potent. This album, more than any other, has produced what are now classed as Petty's main hits. From songs like 'Refugee', 'Here Comes My Girl', 'Even The Losers', to 'Don't Do Me Like That', you have the makings of a Petty best of album on one CD. 'Century City' is a strong song about his travels to Century City near LA, the place where the lawyers for the court case were, it is a touch cynical (as you might imagine) and just exquisite rock and roll. Overall this is a great place to start with Tom Petty, although there is so much more out there to delight and I'd say 'Wildflowers' is a great next choice for an example of his later, more acoustic, work. Simply brilliant.
