ECHO, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Warner Bros). ★★★ ½ -- Not many rock artists can match the consistency of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. While most artists work diligently to update and change their music, Petty continues to stick to a tried and true formula of stripped down, countrified roots rock. And true to form, Petty has come up with another set of solid cuts -- right from the opening strains of "Room at the Top" and into the instantly familiar, instant Petty classic "Counting On You," it's clear Petty is on top form on this disc. Highly recommended.
