This album captures the best of true legends in rock music history. The album is solid from the opening Handle With Care to the positive vibe of End of the Line. My fav tracks are Last Night and Tweeter and the Monkey man which I was fortunate enough to see Tom Petty do a great epic version of it. A must album!

Spritely enthusiasm from these 5 man superstars. Nearly fulfills the hype that surrounds this release. The harmonies are what distinguish this from other rock albums of the 80s-90s. I feel Petty is somewhat the weak link here.

Tutti e cinque i componenti dei Traveling Wilburys avevano, sulla carta, tutto da guadagnare da un'esperienza simile: chi doveva rilanciare la propria carriera ( Orbison ), chi le doveva dare una mano di vernice fresca ( Dylan e Harrison ), chi aveva bisogno della definitiva patente di classico ( Petty ) e chi doveva dimostrare di valere più di quanto un ambiguo passato negli E.L.O. facesse ricordare ( Lynne ). Missione compiuta per tutti, anche se Orbison sarebbe morto l'anno successivo. Belle canzoni ( "Handle with care" su tutte, da ascoltare migliaia di volte senza stancarsi… ), produzione parca ma non scarna, la voglia di divertirsi prima di tutto.

A bunch of guys with a full career behind their backs having a good time. And they sure knew how to capture that lighthearted feel in the mix.

Overall good and enjoyable. An album for a sunny sunday morning.

"ultimate dadrock album" had me nearly shooting rice out of my nose, that's hilarious. could you imagine if the dream team would have put their all into this?!

I want to order that $47 one from ebay so badly but I know that if I do, a repressing will be announced tomorrow.

A thoroughly enjoyable album. Traveling Wilburys is a fun and loose get together by some of music's most legendary figures. Out of the five I feel George Harrison and Roy Orbison are on the best form, especially George's, heading for the light, and of course, handle with care, which is easily the best track here, and Orbison's,not alone anymore, which is also lovely. Other enjoyable cuts are Dylan's, congratulations, and, tweeter and the monkey man. There's certainly nothing substantial on here, and none of the songs would have really made much of an impact outside of this record. But maybe that's the point, it's nothing more or less than a fun and enjoyable record.

I wish I could like this more... but alas, most super groups just aren't that great, no matter who is in it (although I did like Them Crooked Vultures a bit more). AMAZING lineup, but feel like it is lacking in some pizzazz. Even the big single isn't that great.

If you are a fan boy, the music video was pretty cool to see em altogether.

Someone commented this is the ultimate dadrock album... and as much as I myself am a dadrock fan, I'd have to agree.
