Solid if not great. Front-loaded as well. But the first side is classic Tom Petty at the height of his power.

Certainly a solid album. The Waiting might be their best song, and King's Road and Letting You Go are underrated in my opinion.

Solid quality Tom Petty... but it's almost like a B-Sides album or something... nothing special.

Quietly a solid album from start to finish. Just lacks the standout tracks to make it a classic.

tom writes slick, lively and agreeable songs. listening to hard promises is easy and cheerful. but somehow something is missing to make this one "a big thing" for me - i can't really fall in love with it.

Love 80's Tom Petty in particular this and Long After Dark... Not a single weak track between both albums, this guy is the finest songwriter of his generation and for some reason just does not recieve recognition in the site, pitty...
