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 ... Read more in Amazon's Tom Petty Store

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Wildflowers finds Tom Petty at the top of his game. Having finally achieved the mega-success he always deserved with Full Moon Fever, Petty no longer had anything to prove. I can't help but identify these songs with a mellow Tom Petty, although mellow probably isn't the best word for a musician who can still rock like few others. There's definitely a softer quality to this music, however; the frenetic energy of earlier classics such as American Girl and Refugee are great, but Petty's music has matured over the years into something that transcends what has come before. One cannot help but notice the obvious influence of Petty's Traveling Wilburys band mates in these songs. Dylan's influence has been there for many years, but the grace and soul of George Harrison's music wends its way through several of these tracks in a most telling way. Once again, Petty is stepping out without the formal participation of the Heartbreakers, but there's no absence of Mike Campbell to be found in these songs.
This 1994 album is packed with 15 quality tracks, totaling almost 63 minutes, showering Petty fans with an abundance of blessings. I believe You Don't Know How It Feels was the first single, but in my opinion this song pales in comparison to most of the other tracks collected here. Rocking tracks include You Wreck Me, the almost whimsical but undeniably fun Honey Bee, Cabin Down Below (espousing a driving beat with a slight country feel to it), and House in the Woods (get your Petty twang right here).
Time to Move On is, by lyrics and rhythm, a traveling song that hearkens to the ever-present open road to new experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling good to be King 2 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
You really can't go wrong with Wildflowers. The songs are all immensely strong, the playing is beautiful, and it has perhaps the most sparkling production of any record I know. I was surprised to see that Rick Rubin (he of LL Cool J, the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy!) is credited as producer. More credit to him.
What totally gobsmacked me was that it was released in 1994. It just doesn't feel eight years old.
Tom Petty has been around for a long time, and has come a long way from his origins as some sort of Floridan Suzi Quattro. This record came maybe five years after he hit the commercial stratosphere with Learning To Fly and Into The Great Wide Open, and clearly the Petty no longer feels the need to prove anything to anyone. This is a record for Tom Petty.
And it's a cracker: it's by turns gentle and pretty (Wildflowers), melodious (It's Good To Be King), an all-out rocker (Honey-bee), and a fine impression of Dylan (Don't Fade On Me). And these are just random highlights. The whole disc is strong, and its execution is flawless. Production is very natural indeed: hi-fi buffs will auto-excite at the tinkling acoustic guitars and warm snares - no hint of digital manipulation (which probably means its drenched in the stuff!); musos will delight in the subtle, simple clean lines of Mike Campbell, surely one of the most underrated guitar players around.
Nowadays Petty is an elder statesman of country rock, providing backing for Johnny Cash, and on the strength of this recording, it isn't hard to see why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Petty at his finest 11 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is it. Tom Petty at his finest. I bet you thought that he could never do better than Full Moon Fever or Into The Great Wide Open. Wrong. Wildflowers has moved on in a different direction to what Tom is used to. The big rock sing-a-long numbers are still there - You Wreck Me, Honey Bee, The Cabin Down Below, A Higher Place, but it is the ballads on the album which are the stand-outs. Just listen to Time to Move On, Only a Broken Heart and Wake up Time (none of which were released) to see how Tom has moved on since the 70's and 80's both musically and lyrically. In my opinion however, the best number on the album is the brilliant Crawling Back to You. This is just one of the supurb tracks though on one of the best albums ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unadulterated masterpiece 29 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
The most beautiful and inspiring juxtaposition of ballads and all out rock tunes Tom Petty has ever come up with. From the relaxing malevolence of Wildflowers through the `any more laid back and he`d be upside down` strut rock of You Don`t Know How It Feels, you know right from the start that this is the last album you`ll ever need to buy. With a song for every moment from `Crawling Back To You` playing quietly when the lights go out to `You Wreck Me` giving you that morning boost of the spirit that all the full strength coffee in the world would struggle to deliver. The effortless majesty of `It`s good to be king` plays out with the kind of instrumental worthy of a place as the musac of the heavens. `Can I help it if I have some place in my mind where I go time to time?` from the first time you hear those words you`d be forgiven for never returning from that place. Just Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wildflowers 11 Oct 2011
By Lola
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On rare occasions a CD comes along where every track is good. This is one such CD. An excellent mix of everything you ever wanted to hear from Tom Petty. From the pensiveness of Wildflowers, You Don't Know how it Feels, Only a Broken Heart and To Find a Friend, to the rock beat of You Wreck Me and Honey Bee, with a touch of country thrown in for good measure, this is must have CD. After one play-through the songs were all going round in my head, and they are still there. For anyone who wants a change from Refugee and American Girl (good though they are) this is the CD for you. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic - simple as that.
It was the best of times,it was the worst of times - for CDs that is. I remember lots of people putting out longer albums in the mid-90s and sometimes quailty control got lost. Read more
