Tom Petty
Highway Companion
(Warner)
Folks might be surprised to learn Tom Petty has released just three solo records over his incredible 30-year career. Even more astounding is the fact that Petty has never reinvented himself or his folk-rock sound to remain relevant. After the controversial Wildflowers and Petty’s lacklustre reunion with the Heartbreakers on Last DJ, Highway Companion marks a return to form. Tracks like “The Golden Rose,” “Flirting with Time” and “Night Driver” flow effortlessly from the speakers, seducing the listener with their relaxed folk-rock vibe and illustrating why Petty is still one of the most recognizable voices in rock music today.
