Released in November 1982 "Long After Dark" seemed to slip through the cracks - no-one seemed to notice it - especially in the UK - when it's actually a brilliant rock album with all the great Petty trademark hooks and catchy choruses. Tune after tune hits you with their economy and brilliance - just great.

But the reason for this review - and it's pricey value on the open market - is that this issue is not the crap 80's CD initially issued, but the hard-to-find 2001 HDCD version (High Definition Compact Disc) - and the difference in sound couldn't be more pronounced.

Remastered by Joe Gastwirt at Oceanview Digital from the original analogue master tapes - the sound on this issue is just stupendous - clear, rockin' and so loud, you may have to turn the stereo down! A truly fantastic remaster job.

The booklet is ok - reproducing the lyrics the original inner sleeve had - and the back inlay picture is different to the 80's issue, but that's about it. Doesn't really matter that because the sound is just so gobsmacking.

An absolute blinder of an album - and not nearly as dated as so much Eighties cack is. Thoroughly recommended - even at a price.

All Petty's albums are good - some, like 'Damn the Torpedoes' and 'Wildflowers' among others, exceptionally so. This one is often overlooked, and in all fairness there is nothing particularly ground-breaking here, nor are there any real classics. However, musically and lyrically it is a good, solid, consistent album and one I listen to often. Petty, Campbell, Tench etc, do what they do, and as always with this band, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts (which are in themselves never less than good!). Personal favourite tracks are 'Change of Heart', 'Finding Out' and 'The Same Old You', but I like the others too. Definitely deserves a place in any Petty collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Long After Dark 31 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Long After Dark' is an often overlooked album by Tom Petty and yet it has some particularly good tracks on it. The steady keyboard beat of 'You Got Lucky' drives the song along and it has some of the best Petty lyrics of this era. 'Straight Into Darkness' is one of my Petty favourites and sits perfectly in the middle of this album. This album doesn't have the blatant rock n roll fun of his first album, the fire and power of 'Damn The Torpedoes' or the exuberance of 'Full Moon fever', yet it has a solid sound and feel to it that makes it stand out in it's own right. Not my first Petty choice or recommendation, but a great album never the less.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant surprise... 30 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After reading a few scathing reviews, I decided to find out for myself what Long After Dark was all about. I was very surprised listening to this. Yeah, Granted, Petty's songwriting isn't the strongest here but just about every track is great sounding and very well produced, mostly thanks i think, to the band being a bit older and Jimmy Iovine at the desk. Standout tracks are: You Got Lucky, Deliver Me and Straight Into Darkness. Suck it and see people. Arrived quickly and with no problems. Cheers seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as 'Hard Promises' 10 Jun 2013

As a Tom Petty devotee I have listened to a few CDs. This is one of Tom's best! He rocks it out good and strong! If you haven't got it, you've missed out.
