Record Review

Manila Standard - July 2, 1987

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | Let Me Up (I've Had Enough) | MCA
Though this is admittedly one of Petty's finest releases since 1979's No. 2 smash Damn the Torpedoes, his music is weighed down by tentative moves into high-tech rock, an experiment begun with 1985's Southern Accents.

Leadoff single, the Dylanesque Jammin' Me is already off to a fiery chart start and is destined to top Petty's Don't Do Me Like That. Standard Petty arrangements more than make up for the disappointments.
