Tom Petty’s second solo album stretches and breathes over fifteen well-crafted simply put tracks of contemplation; a rustic, homespun, mature collection of songs that seem to fall off the bone as if Petty never broke a sweat in writing them.
The debut solo album from Tom Petty is a pure, chilled-out rock record that’s soaked in summer rays, tapping into the power of rhythm guitar and journeying through Petty’s influences from the 50’s and 60’s.
Nearly three and a half years after their impressive debut, Broadcast return with Haha Sound, an affectionate album full of electronic pieces that creak, clank and rattle away.
The Traveling Wilburys were a supergroup (or coincidental music militia one could say) consisting of Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and George Harrison; and Vol. 1 is their serendipitous debut album recorded in only 10 days, full of solid and exuberant tunes with mass appeal.
Nearly two decades removed from their supposed final studio album, A Tribe Called Quest covertly create their sixth which doesn’t falter or disappoint; a grab bag of uniquely crafted songs of black identity, social awareness, injustice, and an undying spirit of unity.
