Biography

Some time in the last few years Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers took a left turn. Maybe it was when Petty woke up in the night with the idea of reuniting his first band, Mudcrutch, to cut the album they never got a chance to make back in the early 70s. Maybe it was when the Heartbreakers assembled the mammoth multi-disc The Live Anthology, which detailed thirty years of concerts. Maybe it ...

Product Description

Product Description

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will release their new album Hypnotic Eye through Reprise Records. The album is their first since 2010’s well-received ‘Mojo’ set and represents the band’s thirteenth studio album.

Recorded periodically at the band’s Los Angeles rehearsal space The Clubhouse since August 2011, Hypnotic Eye was recently described by Rolling Stone magazine as “maximum rock & roll” and “a decisive return to the concise Sixties-rock classicism of his first great New Wave era albums.” Tom Petty added: ""I knew I wanted to do a rock & roll record. We hadn't made a straight hard-rockin' record, from beginning to end, in a long time.”

The band – completed by Mike Campbell (guitar), Ron Blair (bass), Steve Ferrone (drums), Benmont Tench (keyboards) and multi-instrumentalist Scott Thurston – have delivered an eleven-track album featuring song titles including ‘American Dream Plan B’, ‘Red River’, ‘Burnt Out Town’ and ‘Shadow People’. The album was produced by Petty, Campbell and Ryan Ulyate, who has worked on numerous Heartbreakers albums as well as the debut from Mudcrutch.

Hypnotic Eye will be available in CD, digital, high-resolution Blu-ray audio and vinyl formats. The vinyl will be available as 1-LP or as 2-LPs inclusive of an additional track not available in any other format.

Tom Petty didn't need to do this. He and his group, The Heartbreakers, have so many hits in the can they didn't need to create anything new and be comfortable for the rest of their lives. But it's artists just like Petty who get that itch and it needs to be scratched, and with their 13th studio album (and their first since 2010's "Mojo,") Petty is following today's trends and looking back at his very first two albums, realizing they were great and returned to the style they know best - straightforward rock and roll.

Younger and hungrier musicians would approach the making of an album with low-fidelity, analog recording and other tricks best reserved for the amateur or the foolish, with the end result being longshots that may ultimately go nowhere. Petty took an old formula that was right there on the shelf and re-created his own version of lightning. This album took two years to make, and the perfection, sloppy as it sounds (as if on purpose), is present.

Here's my 30-second from the gut review of each song - 11 tracks at just over 44 minutes:

1. American Dream Plan B - as this was released as a CD single in June 2014 with a $2.00 discount coupon towards the album itself, Petty is still shaking the tree and telling the music industry they still stink. "My success is anybody’s guess, but like a fool, I’m bettin’ on happiness" are the truest words on this album. A great opener.

2. Fault Lines - introspective lyrics pepper this Petty of 2014, and he's got enough guilt of his own thank you very much. Great guitar work by Mike Campbell on lead guitar and Scott Thurston take us to the subtle vibrations under the floorboards. It's a little gritty and unfinished, and it's great. Which takes us right into

5.0 out of 5 stars DEFINITELY A FIVE STAR ALBUM.... 28 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
Hypnotic Eye is a brilliant album and deserves 5 stars without doubt. It's a tremendous collection of tracks by a band still at the height of its powers.

Tom Petty fans would love this album and appreciate the work of a man who has been producing great music for 38 years.

Anyone new to Tom Petty should check this out and be amazed at the quality. Who else is producing rock music of this standard?
From the opening bars of "American Dream Plan B" to the closing acoustic guitar of "Shadow People" this album is a treat to the ears.

Looking forward to a UK/European tour in 2015.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of the shadows 19 Aug 2014
By TMC
Format:Audio CD
Damn the Torpedoes was a seminal release and will always be included in a list of my favorite albums but over the last decade or so I have largely ignored any new input from Tom Petty . Having read a favorable review I decided to buy Hypnotic Eye and whilst I must admit it will never replace Damn the Torpedoes as my favorite Tom Petty and the Heart breakers release it is a commendable album in its own right. The formula is pretty straightforward with a clever production that seems minimalist but actually makes the album sound fresh and modern. Key tracks for me are Sins of my youth and the excellent Shadow People. Good release, this has reignited my interest in Tom Petty and a revisit to his other releases is imminent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Running Down The Hypnotic Eye 28 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I read somewhere that this was a return to Tom Petty's roots and what is regarded as his tour de force 'Damn TheTorpedoes' - it's not and that's not being critical. Sure in amongst these eleven songs there's early Petty but there's also the sound of his later career. It's not a return to form Petty's never been out of form whatever that means. This record is jammed full of great TP with Mike Campbell and the band holding it all together. It's more commercial than Mojo but as a 63 years old TP is still making interesting and relevant music. Only one small gripe it's only 44 minutes long it's over too soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great to see you once again 30 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! First thing first ... This LP is so good, I had to offer up an ELOBF overview! The only tentative link with former producer and fellow Traveling Wilbury Jeff Lynne for this the thirteenth [13th] album - "Hypnotic Eye" - by Tom Petty and his legendary Heartbreakers outfit is the input of co-producer Ryan Ulyate, who worked with Jeff for those ELO remasters and, of course, "Zoom" back in 2001. Although there are elements within the album that ooze with the production values of Jeff, this release is a real return to the early days of the band, particularly their eponymously entitled 1976 debut album and "You're Gonna Get It" [1978].

This is a strong record and a return to form for Tom and the gang with some cutting lyrics matched by the guitar artistry of Mike Campbell throughout. The record is announced by stomping lead single "American Dream Plan B" and it not only grabs your attention, it keeps your attention throughout with the familiar Petty storytelling of "Red River" contrasting with the jazzy "Full Grown Boy" and pensive "Sins Of My Youth". The R 'n' B of "Burnt Out Town" and "Power Drunk" is sheer class too. It is indeed difficult to select favourites from the eleven [11] tracks on show but, for me, the repeat button is pressed most often for "All You Can Carry" and final cut "Shadow People". These are simply magnificent creations on a release that not only rolls back the years, it rightly returns TP, literally a "21st Century Man", to the forefront of American [and world] rock.
