Review

The Billboard Review

Originally reviewed for week ending 5/27/78 Speaking again to the more sordid side of love, Petty has created an intriguing, 11-cut philosophical statement for non-romantics, His uncluttered arrangements, relying on the basic two-guitar, bass, keyboard and drum lineup, accentuate Petty's earthy lyrics and unique, rock melancholia voice, which is more than reminiscent of an earlier, more controlled Jagger. Selections run the gamut from softer, arresting pieces using tasty 12-string interplay ("Hurt") through all-stops-out rock ("Too Much Ain't Enough"). Best cuts: "Hurt," "You're Gonna Get It," "No Second Thoughts," "Restless." Dealers: Petty interest has been bolstered by inclusion of his "Breakdown" hit in the "FM" film soundtrack.
