I must admit I've pretty much written Petty off the last few years. I felt he was a prime example of the "well-fed artist" syndrome. Well let me tell you, this record was a slap in the face. It's solid, straight-ahead rock, much more in line with his earlier work. I really recommend giving this one a shot.
