iTunes Review

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Greatest Hits just might be one of the best American classic-rock compilations around. File it somewhere alongside the Eagles’ Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and the Steve Miller Band’s Greatest Hits 1974 - 78. The hits are all here and they sound fantastic back-to-back. “American Girl” opens with that unmistakable Bo Diddley tempo as Petty contrasts his 12-string jangle against Mike Campbell’s sharpened, new-wave tones. That Byrdsy twin-tone returns on the biting power-pop hit “Listen to Her Heart.” Underdog anthem “Even the Losers” grooves on a British Invasion-tinged backbeat while “Don’t Come Around Here No More” blends icy synth-pop with the psychedelic drones of electric sitar. You can even hear some classic California canyon-twang seeping from the empowering “I Won’t Back Down” and the wistful “Free Fallin’.” But throughout his genre flirtations Petty’s signature West Coast rock ‘n’ roll remains a comfortable constant.

Since 1976, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers have been one of America's finest rock & roll bands ever, combining the ringing guitars of the Byrds with the gritty rhythmic drive of the Rolling Stones. Petty's tales of American losers and dreamers were simple and direct, but emotionally charged. The Heartbreakers were a lean, tight band that could handle hard rock & roll and melodic pop equally well. The group gained critical attention and solid sales with their first album, but 1979's Damn...
