      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Easy listening with thought provoking lyrics

      I am starting to get into Tom Petty's music, as a fan of the Travelling Wilburys and enjoying his performance at the Concert For George. This is my first foray into his solo music and I am very impressed.

      Its opening track Saving Grace is upbeat, punchy and a great way to start the album. The lyrics are catchy but are also well thought out and intelligent, and it is easy to see why this was a single.

      Square One is a really beautiful song which is rather introspective and which moved me.

      Flirting With Time returns to the upbeat song although it masks a sad theme in its lyrics. It sounds very familiar without being generic.

      Down South has really interesting instrumentals and is very easy to listen to with some amusing lyrics as well as some sweet ones.

      Jack is, for me, a slightly weaker track, despite there being interesting instrumentals in it, I found the vocal delivery a little monotonous.

      Turn This Car Around is slightly preferable to Jack but still not that much of a stand-out track.

      Big Weekend is upbeat and interesting but not to my taste. It sounds a little too country for me but it's still well performed.

      Night Driver is a track I like, although it sounds a little generic.

      Damaged By Love is very heartfelt and has some really brilliant and insightful lyrics...for this reason it's one of the most powerful tracks on the album.

      This Old Town is also well thought out in terms of its lyrics and it's another track I like a lot.

      Ankle Deep brings the energy level back up with punchy, enthusiastic guitar strumming. It's catchy and easy to listen to.

      The Golden Rose is a great finisher for the album and has some spine chilling instrumentals, most notably the guitar middle section. In my top 3 songs on this album.

      Overall, this is a very good album and I certainly want to explore Tom Petty's solo work further. This was a good start.
