You make a fair point. Me too -always been a Tom Petty fan - let's be honest there's not many around now like old Charlie T or Muddy Wilbury, and a new album from him is very welcome.
But it's only been ten days man! The album is released, people write their stuff - someone even gives it TWO stars...! You gotta listen to it at least twenty times before you make your mind up, no?
And you like "Forgotten Man". Cool. I like "All you can carry..." And "American Dream.. plan B". And after I've plugged it in and had a few more listen's, there'll be more.
So for all those 5 star awarders - yeh - they do have a clue - it's what they reckon - and after more than 10 days... maybe you will too!
So 5 stars Tom - great album.
