Find some Mojo with Tom Petty

I finally got my hands on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers latest album Mojo, and gave it a listen not necessarily expecting too much.  I could not have been any further from the mark.

Mojo impressed me right away for it’s departure from their usual sound (most notably, TP’s Rickenbacker 360/12). While it is still Rock n’ Roll- don’t let anyone tell you that it isn’t- there is a definite change in mood with an underlying blueslike feel to it. The band seems to be wearing their hearts on their sleeves this time around.

Suffice it to say, I am thoroughly satisfied with where they went with Mojo, and I would recommend giving it a listen. You will still find what made them great before; this time they are simply taking it a step further.
