MUDCRUTCH
MUDCRUTCH 2

The buddies from Gainesville bring it home again with a tighter and warmer sophomore album, forging ahead with no covers and opting for a varied collaboration instead with Petty still at the helm. The whimsical “Trailer” is a leftover breezy rock tune from Southern Accents, appropriately selected and used to introduce the record. A pensive Petty comes to an emotional conclusion in the simple acoustic ballad “I Forgive It All” and a fuzzy, whirling circus breaks out in the psychedelic “Hope.” Overall, 2 is a casual and spacious daliance with the jangle and rumble of Americana music, with a familiar band that’s pleased to make earthier compositons rather than shooting for the stars.
