been meaning to do this one, the '94 rock albums thread reminded me.

the last good petty album, i think. (there are songs i like on she's the one, but that's only sort of barely an album anyway.) haven't actually listened to this in a long time, i need to revisit it.

(among other things, i was really happy for the rick rubin production after all that jeff lynne stuff.)

You Don't Know How It Feels was the theme song to many a stoner session during my freshman year of college.

"Crawling Back To You" – one of my favorites songs by anyone. It's made many a mixtape/CD-R.

"wake up time" is really pretty too. the album ends well.

Petty's favorite album, by the way.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

This was a staple in my design studio back in college, it always seemed to get put on around 4 or 5 in the morning during yet another all-nighter, so "Wake Up Time" always took on a weird significance hearing it as the sun was coming up and the world would be coming alive again. So I'm voting for that, even though there are a good 5 or 6 others I could argue for.

yeah i ended up voting for that too.

The review in the latest RS album guide says the album evokes Neil Young in its casualness -- it's casual without getting limp (most of the time). Certainly it's true of the first third.

the middle is a little saggy i guess, but i like most of the songs well enough. things like "don't fade on me" and "to find a friend," i usually forget about them until they come on, but they're pretty nice.

hellzapoppa (tipsy mothra), Tuesday, 19 January 2010 07:10 (ten years ago) link

love this album. i received it for my birthday 15 years ago!

title track is kinda perfect

tylerw, Tuesday, 19 January 2010 19:34 (ten years ago) link

Recorded in one take!

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

i like the vote for "honey bee," good tune.

Are you starting the next poll, tipsy?

Blue Fucks Like Ben Nelson (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 24 January 2010 16:00 (ten years ago) link

what would be the next one? "let me up"? anyway, you can do it if you want. or i can. i'm not proprietary.

four years pass...

20th anniversary is this fall. This album has aged beautifully, and I like it tons more now than I did in '94.

eleven months pass...

The deluxe reissue didn't make the 20th anniversary, but one of the "lost songs" is up on Spotify. "Somewhere Under Heaven" is pretty good on first listen.

Does the reissue include all those tracks that didn't make the record, or are they on that thing called Mo Wildflowers or whatever?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 2 June 2015 23:48 (five years ago) link

I believe the additional ten tracks are going to be on the reissue.

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 3 June 2015 02:30 (five years ago) link

two years pass...

I'm so tired of being tired
Sure as night will follow day
Most things I worry about
Never happen anyway

Nothing official yet, but:

“The family and the band are in a joyful process of discovering the Wildflowers sessions and demos and wanted to share a tiny bit of that with the fans today,” Adria Petty said when debuting the track on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio channel.
