Tom Petty is back......and even better !!!!,
This review is from: Highway Companion (Audio CD)
This is such a refreshing change from today's chart rubbish.
Whilst I have a lot of respect and admiration for a lot of today's new music (The Zutons,The Kooks,The Feeling etc.) today's singles charts is just absolute drivel.
This just felt like an oasis in the desert of chart pap.
From the unmistakable vocals to the sheer class of guitar playing it's just absolute aural pleasure.
Yes perhaps it has the fact that Jeff Lynne is very much present in the studio but is that such a bad thing?
As a manic E.L.O. fan I'm probably a liitle bias but here we do have one of the greatest songwriters and vocalists ever so in my opinion it can only be a good thing.
One thing I will agree with tho' is what one reviewer said-it takes a couple of listens but when it finally hooks you in you don't want to let go.
