Product Description

Product Description

Tom Petty And the Heartbreakers, the Last DJ follo ws their 2002 induction into the Rock and Roll Hal l of Fame, and marks the lastest chapter in the nevr-ending story one of rock's greatest bands.

Amazon.co.uk

Tom Petty is angry and disgusted with the music business and modern pop culture in general. The title track on The Last DJ tells of "the last human voice" with integrity on the airwaves. "Money Becomes King" is the story of the rise and corruption of a rock star, which becomes a metaphor for the form itself. "Joe" is about a music CEO whose creed is: "You'll get to be famous / I get to be rich." Meanwhile, "When a Kid Goes Bad" and "Lost Children" are self-explanatory titles, describing the result of all this 21st-century ennui. There are great lyrics here, hitting everything from Britney to corporate sponsorship ("All the music gave me was a craving for lite beer")--but, musically, Petty and his band aren't quite up to their old standards. You can still hear classic rock references: "Money Becomes King" nicks the opening of the Turtles' "You Showed Me"; "When a Kid Goes Bad" is a pop variation on the Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"; and the piano-driven "Like a Diamond"--the best track--is almost a Name That Tune fest. Elsewhere, it gets a little plodding at times, but as a document of a middle-age rocker who's mad as hell, it's very entertaining. --Bill Holdship

Only onwing the Tom Petty Anthology 76-93, i wanted to grab some of his more recent tunes after i discovered how good he was. Until a couple of months ago i didn't even know who he was, now hes one of my favourite artists ever!
'The Last Dj' is above and behold the lead song on the album, wonderful in soundup there with his best songs ever. My other 2 personal favourites are 'The Road Ahead' and 'The Man who Loves Women'. I don't need to go into lyrical qualityas if your a Tom Petty fan you know they will be pretty good anyway. The other songs don't hook me like others as i prefer the songs which drift along with a good rythem like 'Love is a long road' and 'Change of Heart'. All in all a fine album well worth getting wether you like T.P or not.

Well, I've had three listens. Now, a previous problem with TP of late has been a 15 track album with too many throw away tracks. This time he reigns it in beautifully. 12 tracks, splendid writing and performances. 'When A Kid Goes Bad' descends too much into cliche, hence a star off, but the rest of the album shines. The title track is wonderful, classic Petty. His voice sounds the best it's ever been. 'Money Becomes King' is an outrageously good song. Other gems (eg the beautiful Blue Sunday and the wonderfully quirky style of 'The Man Who Loves Women) abound. There is a fair amount of orchestration - deployed with arch subtlety and intent, particularly on 'Money Becomes King', and the guitar work is a little more restrained than on some recent outings, which is vastly to the album's benefit. In short, this is TP's best for a while. Enjoy.

This is a CD that starts out very strong, in fact the first four songs are the best of the batch. They share a common theme, that being the current sorry state of the media/recording industry & it's possible I like them so much because Petty very much echoes my own views on those subjects. I do believe, however, that "Money Becomes King" is one of the better songs of Petty's career, & I will be very surprised if it doesn't quickly become a staple of his live shows. After the first four tracks the quality does decline a little. I have to disagree with Petty's opinion on the free DVD interview footage that there are no filler tracks on this album. A couple of numbers (particularly "The Man Who Loves Women") sound suspiciously like filler to my ears. I found the songs I preferred were those that have lengthier lyrics, which suggests that Petty genuinely has something to say, but some of the others seemed more like he just had a good tune in need of some words. The remaining tracks are at least average Petty songs & that's no bad thing in my opinion. Several tracks bear the unmistakable influence of his old friend George Harrison & (especially on "Dreamville") I can almost believe the late Beatle's spirit was present in the studio when it was recorded. The free DVD is a very worthwhile bonus, & in fact some songs sound rather better on the rehearsal footage featured on this disc than they do on the actual CD.

As the proud owner of every Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album, I must say that this is his very best. Superb vocally as always and not a track which could even remotely be described as weak. Best songs for me are the title track and 'Have Love Will Travel'. The latter is incidentally TP's favourite too. The main theme of the album is TP's anger/despair at a music industry which has become all too shallow and corrupted from the top of the music companies and owners.

I very much reccomend that those who can should get a copy with the bonus DVD too. TP takes us through a few of the songs on the album and explains their significance a little. Other artists take note of his words too. There is no 'filler' on this album nor should there ever be on any album.

Enjoy people, this really is good!!

I was travelling to the UK via Dubai and Tom Petty was one of the artists featured on the onboard CD system. The airline had best of comipilations of many artists. The track "The Last DJ" stood out strongly and after disappoiningly not being available in the CD stores in London, I decided to order through Amazon. I have two of Tom Petty's late 1980's albums and somehow stopped buying his albums but "The Last DJ" has renewed my interest in Tom. He's back with the Heartbreakers and I would recommend this album highly.

By Og Oggilby TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Sept. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Ordinarily, bands that have been going as long as Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers should have been washed up, going through the same tired motions, albums that consist of a few radio-friendly catchy tunes and a lot of filler. 'The Last DJ' confounds such low expectations by being a very good record indeed, with Petty picking up the lyrical cudgels on a variety of subjects, ranging from the decline of disc jockeys who actually care about music, through to corporate sponsorship of rock gigs, and society's ills in general. Angry it is, in parts at least, but there are many sumptuous melodies, and excellent musicianship to be enjoyed on this record. The overall impression left is that Tom Petty ia A Good Bloke, still in possession of most of his marbles, and still capable of delivering high-quality radio-friendly rock - but with a conscience, too. Great record, pure and simple...
