BBC Review

After 11 years as the undisputed driving force behind his band, the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty had become global currency. Nothing underlined this fact more than his acceptance into the ranks of rock's elder statesmen/buddies as a 'member' of the Travelling Wilburys (albeit by accident, due to George Harrison leaving his axe at Petty's house). It was while taking this lighthearted sojourn that he began to write songs that, to his ears, sounded 'nothing like Heartbreakers songs''. Forming an unlikely alliance with the king of Beatlesque soft rock, Jeff Lynne of ELO, he immediately set to recording what was to be his first solo album.

Petty had always worn his influences on his sleeve: like many of his American peers preferring to see himself as part of a lineage rather than a new order replacing worn out models (ironically the Heartbreakers had been seen in the more easily iconoclastic UK as something akin to New Wave). But Full Moon Fever was a chance for Petty to both take stock AND openly acknowledge his influences. Nowhere was this more evident than on his cover of the Byrds' Feel A Whole Lot Better. Of course everyone over the age of 25 knew that he sounded just like Roger McGuinn, but here the uncanny resemblance was made plain. Other songs addressed nostalgia while examining how he'd reached this level of success. Hit single Free Fallin' mistily looked back at a childhood sweetheart (''She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis... I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart") left in his wake as he left Florida for the West Coast in search of stardom, while Runnin' Down A Dream mentions the teenage years of listening to Del Shannon. The album's other hit, I Won't Back Down, similarly 'fessed up about the hard-nosed attitude needed to make it in such a cut-throat business.

What also marks this as different from previous work was the movement away from harder edged rock, using the production methods of new pal Lynne to coat more introspective songs with lush, multilayered acoustics and keyboards. It also marked the point where Petty knew he was a big enough name to step out sans a band moniker, even though both Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench appear on the album. From this point Petty was a 'classic' artist'. Whether with the Heartbreakers, playing with Dylan or even the Wilburys, he'd reached the apogee of his ambition: destined to be played next to his childhood heroes on the FM airwaves that blew through the Californian night. --Chris Jones

Tom Petty at his absolute best. Every song is a classic in its own right.
Best enjoyed in an open top car, cruising in the middle of nowhere on a beautiful day!!! (see "Runnin' down a dream")
A timeless CD which will be just as enjoyed in 50 years time as it has been in the past 20.
Punchy, poignant and classy. Few albums will ever surpass this.
Free fallin - all the way to the "most played" in your CD collection.
Pure Genius.

A superb collection of songs and one of those very rare occasions where I can genuinely say that there is not one bad song on this album.

A masterpiece.

Released in 1989, this record ensured that Petty would be ranked alongside his inspirations - Dylan,Mcguinn and Harrison.
FMF contains the same feel as many of the best Byrds albums, updated to sound relevant and meaningful. It also spawned two of Petty's biggest hits - I Won't Back Down and the magical Free Fallin' - my personal favourite track ever !!

Having obtained CD's of "The Traveling Wilbury's; by this I mean Vol 1 and Vol 3, people have attemted to include this CD as a "Wilbury Type CD". In many ways they are correct as it was written ~ 1990, between the 2 great Wilbury CD's. However, it is distinctly Tom Petty, and certainly at his best. One other CD I would recommend here is Tom Petty's "Echo": a sublime production to rank along side this one, if not better.
However, do not be tempted to buy via, say E-Bay or Amazon, a Wilbury's Vol 1,2,3,4. They don't exist: vol 2 is "Full Moon Fever", Vol 4 is a collage of out-takes etc. Buy the originals and you cant go wrong and "Full Moon Fever" is up there with the best.

and you know why? because there is not a single filler in this record.

Kickin off with Free Fallin' and I Won't Back Down, this is Dylan for the late eighties, fantastically played with simple yet effective guitar.

Face in the Crowd is a highly evocative piece for which any singer/songwriter worth their bread and butter would have sold their mothers for.

Runnin' Down a Dream is the closest thing to an old fashioned rocker and you'll find it impossible not to tap your feet along the chorus line simmilar to Mind With a Heart of Its Own.

I could go on and on about each song in the record, but, suffice to say, Full Moon Fever is one of those albums you can just play on repeat time and again, the music is not complicated, it's just... good. Very good.

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 29 Dec. 2007
Format: Audio CD
I grew up on this album and it is the place where I heard Tom Petty first. This album is light and fun and will have you hooked from the word go. Jeff Lynne's production and co-writing abilities compliment Tom's style perfectly and the album they crafted has become a classic. This has such wonderful tracks as 'Free fallin', I won't back Down', 'Runnin' Down A Dream' and many more. In fact I'd go so far as to say that there isn't a dud track on this album. The slowest track on the CD is 'Face in The crowd' and for sheer melancholy and feeling it can't be beaten. This album may be short but every second is perfectly crafted and you'll never want it to end. You can't go far wrong when buying this CD, you may be bitten by the Petty bug, but boy is that first bite delicious!

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