Tom Petty <<Full Moon Fever>> MCA-6253
Avec <<Full Moon Fever>>, produit par Jeff Lynne (ELO), nous retrouvions Tom Petty (Traveling Wilburys) sans son ensemble, The Heartbreakers (sauf pour Mike Campbell à la guitare électrique). Les textes parfois froids et réalistes de Petty suivent la même thématique que ses albums précédents et les musiques présentent également certaines similitudes en ce qui concerne les arrangements. Avec <<Full Moon Fever>>, Petty’s améliore tout en se gardant bien de succomber aux goûts du jour. A signaler ici: <<I Won’t Back Down>>, <<A Face in The Crowd>> et <<Feel A Whole Lot Better>> (un ancien succés du groupe The Byrds). Pour qui a évolué avec la musique de Petty.
