Editors’ Notes

Though Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers are considered a raw, no-nonsense rock ’n’ roll band, they’ve also always understood the value of smart production. They love to rock—make no mistake—but they also love to make records. 2014’s Hypnotic Eye makes that obvious with the timely “American Dream Plan B,” where the band’s textures alter from verse to chorus with ease. It's the result of Petty, his right-hand man Mike Campbell (a multi-instrumentalist), and coproducer Ryan Ulyate knowing intuitively how to make basic rock sound multidimensional in the studio—and hopefully on the radio. “Full Grown Boy” provides a light, swinging touch from Benmont Tench’s jazzy piano hands, making the return of Campbell’s electric guitar riffs on “All You Can Carry” a powerful left hook. The sound is often aggressive, as if the guys were hammering things out in the garage out back (“Red River,” “Power Drunk,” “Forgotten Man”). Yet three years in the making suggests that great care and thought went into the emotional immediacy of another powerful and heartfelt Heartbreakers album.

Customer Reviews

The hits just keep comin'

Not surprised it's this good... the sound is familiar and, at the same time, fresh and exciting. But... isn't that the way it always is with Heartbreakers albums? Tom Petty is and always has been at the forefront of this country's (or, any other country) songwriting talent. "American Dream Plan B" rocks!!! Hoping the balance of this album will achieve the high regard I have for favourite Heartbreakers' albums... Hard Promises, Echo, Wildflowers, Mojo, and the Last DJ

Not Sure

I don’t know, maybe it will grow on ya, but I am not into it first pass.


I’m a huge Petty fan and had high hopes for a great piece of work, but frankly, this represents a sub-par performance in the songwriting department. It lacks energy, creativity and just not up to Tom’s great abilities. Some of the lyrics are downright mundane.

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 the Torpedos...
