The Petty Archives

Review by Richard Paton
Toledo Blade - Sunday, October 27, 1996

"SHE'S THE ONE," Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Warner Bros.) How can this not be a great disc when it opens with "Walls (Circus)"? The song has an appealing melody, washes of harmony, jangly guitars, a Beatles-esque sound, and Petty's distinctive vocals. Other tracks on this collection from the movie of the same name embrace a stylistic spectrum from minimalist "Grew Up Fast" to breezy "California."
