5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Accents 13 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Originally conceived as a double album (but released as a single) 'Southern Accents' delivers another CD packed with that Heartbreaker sound and Tom Petty's unique songwriting and vocals. It is less accessible than other Petty albums but still has some tracks that stand out. 'Rebels' is especially good and although 'Don't Come Around Here No More' is one of the most well known from this CD, it's sound is the most unlike the rest of the album. 'Spike' is a light and fun track and the title track delivers some great lyrics. Overall this is a great addition to any Petty collection, especially as it is so often overlooked. There are better albums to buy if you've not tried Tom Petty before, 'Full Moon Fever', 'Wildflowers' and 'Anthology' are all good starting places, but this album has a great sound and is well worth a buy.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Great and unusual album. 11 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album,mainly because it is so varied, and doesn't sound like the usual Tom Petty,i.e. a very poppy soft rock sound.
Bits of it sound very eighties production, i,e,2 women do- wopping in the back ground, especially track 5-make it better, you can imagine being played alongside Belind Carlisle, but a good party track that will have you dancing around the room.
It starts off with Tom acting the hardnut southerner with a sneer in the voice, singing "i was born a rebel one foot in the grave and one on the pedel, a good foot tapper, you'll soon be singing along to.
But it does sound like 2 different albums one the poppy jingle jangle pop, and the other a different melancholic more seious Tom, which is a nice contrast.
The best tracks are the more serious ones i.e.the slower ones-southern accents a real heartfelt ballad on piano with minimal strings not overdone, and the best of everything a nice sad little tune about an old sweetheart with Tom sounding close to tears, very moving.
Weird track is Spike, like a bluesy jam session with Tom sounding very loose sounding almost half cut.
Essentially a good album you will want to listen to all the way through

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent exploration of their roots 27 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
I first bought this album in a sale in 1985: suspect that Petty was soft-rock filler, the gutsy roots sound and the incisive lyrics got me hooked. Whilst some of the brass and mid-80s synth effects date this, it remains a evocative and exciting album showing the depth of Petty's songwriting and composition.

4.0 out of 5 stars I had this when it first came out... 13 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Takes me back to the days before CDs....Used to listen to regularly but it was my sisters. So finding it again took me back in time like a little time capsule. It's sound is dated in parts but contains a couple of classic tracks.
