Mojo' is the twelfth album from American heartland rock group Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. It is the band's first album together in eight years, since 2002's 'The Last DJ'. 'Mojo' was recorded largely without the use of studio overdubs, with most of the songs being recorded live. The album has a bluesy sound, with a roaming, jam-based feel to several of the tracks.

BBC Review

Tom Petty–solo artist, Heartbreaker and Travelling Wilbury–has been making records since the late 1970s, and in that time he's encompassed many musical styles. Well, three or four: new wave, rock, psychedelia and Americana, that mixture of Dylan, blues, country, soul and so forth that everyone from Springsteen to Bon Jovi has tried in  various forms.

Now, after returning to his roots with 2006 solo outing Highway Companion, Petty reunites with the Heartbreakers for their 12th album. Mojo sees Petty steep himself in Americana again, adopt a live-in-the-studio feel, and generally rock out. The results are initially quite perky, as the band crash and charge through songs, but after a couple of plays everything becomes rather dull. Every song feels like it's never going to end (some are, for no good reason, over five minutes long), riffs and tunes seem half-finished (and in several cases, half-inched), and very little of interest happens.

There's the turgid blues of the aptly named Takin' My Time, the weak Buffalo Springfield of First Flash of Freedom, and the inaccurately-named I Put a Spell On You pastiche of Good Enough. It's a packed attic all right. You find yourself longing for the clanging pop of American Girl, the Springsteen thunder of Refugee or even the pscyhedelia of Don't Come Around Here No More. And then, as it edges over the hour mark, you find yourself desperate for anything that isn't this album.

'Mojo' as its name suggests is probably the closest Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers will ever get to making a pure blues album with Tom Petty orchestrating his usual magic as a songwriter on guitar & vocals leaving Mike Campbell to cast his spells on lead guitar. Keyboard maestro Benmont Tench augments proceedings on various pianos and organs whilst Ron Blair plays bass, Steve Ferrone plays drums & percussion and Scott Thurston adds additional guitar & Harmonica. Unlike previous albums, Mojo captures the band jamming during various 'live' sessions in the studio (mostly without the use of overdubs) creating a diverse range of fabulous new songs, some influenced by other great artists and many with both feet firmly in the blues!

First up is the fast rocking 'Jefferson Jericho Blues' that opens with a lurid tale about Thomas Jefferson before the band decide to reveal their psychedelic side on the dreamy 'First Flash of Freedom' that has some great moments throughout followed by the upbeat 'Running Man's Bible' which certainly gets the pulse racing! On 'The Trip to Pirate's Cove' we discover a musical treasure that resembles 'Slabo Day' by blues legend Peter Green before a compelling 'Candy' and melancholy 'No Reason To Cry' lead us into the powerful 'I Should Have Known It' that salutes vintage Led Zep! 'U.S. 41' tells a tale from the Great Depression country blues style whilst 'Takin' My Time' unleashes some great heavy delta blues before 'Let Yourself Go' features Scott Thurston giving his all on harmonica. 'Don't Pull Me Over' is the rhythmic reggae wildcard on this album and if you thought pure blues was 'risky' for these guys... then check this one out!

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Mojo is a revelation. This Is the live sound (apparently the album was recorded live in the studio without overdubs) of TP and the band playing the most sublime sounding blues. It ranges from the opening traditional blues format of Jefferson Jericho Blues and moves next on to First Fllash Of Freedom, a track that the Grateful Dead might have recorded. Other stand outs are the brilliant story telling of The Trip To Pirate's Cove, No reason To Cry and US 41. There are however no weak tracks on the album.

The reggae influenced Don't Pull Me Over is fantastic. TP's ghostly vocals coupled with a reggae beat about hoping to avoid being caught by the police whilst carrying drugs.

This is an album that flows beautifully from start to finish and the excellent production highlights the superb musicianship including some fantastic performances from all involved especially Mike Campbell on guitar and Benmont Tench on keyboards.

Now we just need a european tour please - and soon - and long overdue.

I always buy his records because he is so consistent, but this one sees him raising his game. It sounds like it was recorded live, and the sleeve lists recording dates for each track. The band cuts loose a lot more than usual. The guitars have an amazing vintage tone, you can almost smell the dust burning on the old valve amps. There are no gaps between tracks so you just play the whole thing through from start to finish. The songs are all strong, and the cover art has a vintage feel that supports the music.

This is quite simply the best Tom Petty album since Full Moon Fever. I really like his music anyway but this is a huge step up in terms of quality of playing and feeling - the absolute standout tracks are US 41 and Pirate Cove but I can't think of any one that you could remotely classify as 'filler'
Other tracks that grabbed my attention were 'Lovers Touch' and 'Taking My Time' and going back for repeat plays meant the first run through took nearly two hours
There is a relaxed style to his playing and vocals that just capture the nature of blues without becoming mawkish and Mike Campbell just deserves huge credit for the fluency of his playing. OK, this is very much a first impression and time may change that but this is a great album on the first two listens

Let me make one thing clear: I never believed CDs were better than vinyl. They are more convenient, capable of great sound using relatively inexpensive equipment and far harder to damage. But a high quality vinyl disc on a top end system will always produce a sound that is more musical than a CD and trash the noise that comes from an MP3 file.

I hadn't bought a new vinyl disc since the mid 1980s...so when I saw Tom Petty had released MOJO on vinyl I had to try it. When it arrived, very promptly, I was curious. First impressions were good, high quality card sleeve and the vinyl disc was heavy and perfectly flat. The hole in the middle was a snug fit on the spindle of my Dunlop Systemdek turntable.

The system was ready: I lowered the Linn arm and there was silence as the needle tracked the run-in grooves. Excellent!

The music? It seems to me that Tom Petty and his band have moved towards country rock with this album. Bruce Springsteen it isn't! Compared with his earlier work the arrangements are softer, perhaps less complex but the quality of the music, especially through my always revealing QUAD 63 ELS speakers is superb. The lyrics are, as ever, worth listening to.

One CD = 4 sides on vinyl, so there is no sitting back and letting the music wash over you, but after a couple of sides I began to warm to this album. So much so that I used the free download and it is safely in my I-pod. I've listened to if a few times: there are a couple of tracks that I am less keen on, "Takin my Time and I Put a Spell on you are, well, tedious but Pirates Cove is a gem!

I was impressed with the disc: if you want to make sure your turntable and speakers are up to the mark try this disc. If you are a "must have Tom Petty" fan then it is for you.
