  1. just love this song and would love to hear this sound more developed and worked on in the future. I feel that we will get Pettys dark stark real American masterwork of his career in the coming years and that his career will take a decidedly Johnny Cash turn for some reason interspersed with Mudcrutch and Heartbreakers works. maybe im just tripping. supernatural radio is sort of that vibe as well from the same record
  2. I love Mike Campbell and Tom Petty rocking this song out some nice guitar lines towards the end of the song. It is probably my fave TPATHB mid tempo Americana style rocker it has everything from the harmonica and harmony vocal to Tom telling a tale in his finest drawl. I do believe it was their last big budget music video and the end of an era in that medium.
  3. LDWMJ has that seductive groove and great drums it is also their freshest and most modern sounding rocker that has aged well. U Get Me High reminds me of this song in some ways too.
  4. no worries mate. tpathb are loved in Australia it would be nice to just once have them but I don't expect this would ever happen.
  5. My comment was in reference to his never returning back to Australia, its been 30 years!
  6. it as if a boxing kangaroo told him not to come around here no more
  7. A Self Made Man! Very Johnny Cash. Also Depot Street reminded me of a few reggae/ska bands from the 70's though no specific act come to mind. At times he used a Lennonesque delivery, Byrds like harmonies and Dylanesque phrasing
  8. Steve Harley - Make Me Smile always could hear Petty using his best drawl on this song
  9. Fantastic that 2 has debuted #10 on Billboard after their debut hit #8 its a great showing. I am stoked too that the album has charted overseas too as Mudcrutch like the HB's seem to tour exclusively in the U.S. Where did it chart in your neck of the woods? Unfortunately it didn't chart in Australia to my knowledge.
  10. there are some well shot great audio videos Im enjoying at the moment on you tube, it is amazing that there aren't many of the new songs is there a reason for this?
  11. I love Save Your Water Too, the melody sticks too so maybe not such a bad choice, and it has what I call a very Tom Petty vocal
  12. actual recount of the songs would be nice anyone who attends? its all about the songs and if there were improvisations or changes to what is on the records, etc
  13. Am I selfish in suggesting that "Dreams of Flying" is the best "single" "radio single" "promotional single" to put out?
  14. "you give me hope, you give me violins" Jeff entering Petty's life and reinvigorating his sound to great success Thoughts?
  15. Trailer Originally the B-Side to Petty and Heartbreakers "Don't Come Around Here No More" greatly improved here with time and age, its pretty much a classic right up there with Tom's best.Dreams of Flying Tom had this tune from the Wildflowers era and it sounds awesome here with Mudcrutch. Its a solid mid tempo rocks that has an anthemic quality to it and some nice chiming guitars that would sound great on the radio, live, anywhere. This would have been a huge hit late 80's and early 90's and is not unlike many of those.Beautiful Blue One of those slower well crafted songs where you appreciate each musician and their contribution to its sound. Another Petty song, someone found the lyrics of it and then Tom took it and wrote a tune to it. Mike Campbell and Tom Leadon add some nice guitars with just the right piano fills from Benmont TenchBeautiful World Drummer Randall Marsh contributes this rather catchy pop rocker with bright guitars and tight harmonies on the chorus and a couple of nice change ups on what the Beatles would call "the middle eight" a brief very And Your Bird can sing guitar solo. Someone else mentioned a "When the Time Comes" similarity but i first heard the first line of Meatloaf's "Bat Out Of Hell" I Forgive it All A sparse but moving ballad with Petty on acoustic guitar. Offers a great line "People are what they make em" The Other Side of The Mountain Lively rockabilly/bluegrass number from guitarist Tom Leadon like the harmonies on this tune adds greatly to the albums rich tapestry of down home sounds.Hope Tom sings in a high register this foot stomper driven by a Hammond Organ with a 60's vibe epecially the guitar breaks that have been fed through a speaker of some sort. Upbeat and optimistic.Welcome to Hell Benmont's Jerry Lee Lewis inspired offering, often the man right at the back behind the keys for the Heartbreakers he can surely deliver a song really well and this boogie woogie will get you up and dancing, I like it!Save Your Water Very much like The Byrd's but unmistakably Tom Petty with some notable vocal phrasing and professional harmonies with the band, a great song and great playing by the whole band.Vicitim of Circumstance Often considered the poorest singer of the bunch guitarist Mike Campbell offers a great rocking tune that would fit nicely on say The Full Moon Fever Album or She's The One Soundtrack. This is a fun number, well written and will slay it live.Hungry No More A Gimme Shelter vibe permeates this acoustic based closing track and it is a fine song which could fast become another Petty epic.
  16. On the verses of Beautiful World can anyone hear: "The sirens are screaming, and the fires are howlingWay down in the valley tonight" Just jumped out at me and thought Id share to see if anyone else found this?
  17. Was anyone else reminded off a melody line from Meatloaf's "Bat out of Hell" ? "the sirens are screaming, and the fires are howling way down in the valley tonight" I love the vocal harmonies on the chorus and the guitars a little pop for Mudcrutch but a refreshing listen nonetheless
  18. further to this convo a song like "All you can Carry" is one of those Petty songs which has both a riff and a hook, takes me back to the ITGWO and FMF days when his music ruled the radio
  19. As overplayed or as popular as Runnin Down A Dream is, I consider that frenetic guitar solo as Mike's best and he has many brilliant solos capturing all sorts of tones and feels
  20. Saw this a few days back, love these sorts of skits and such a rocking song that screams rock star. Dhani at the end was great to see
  21. It is their most heavy riffage song ever. I know alot of people that were surpised that Petty and the boys could still rock it like they did, it really is a killer song as good as anything in rock an roll at the time and should have been a massive hit everywhere
  22. one of my fave early TPATHB rockers that has not dated one bit, glad they revisited this
  23. On the subject of Johnny Cash does anyone reckon Cash would have done a great cover of Crash Test Dummies "Mmm mmm mmm mmm"
  24. its a great little album. i love how grew up fast builds up, it really should be played live
