Album Challenge Day 6: Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty

Did anybody write better pop/rock hooks than Tom Petty? He just made it look so easy. Full moon fever was Petty’s first album without the Heartbreakers as his band, though Heartbreaker guitarist, Mike Campbell played on the album. Also on the album was Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and George Harrison. That’ll do. This album is what made me pay attention to Tom Petty. I know his stuff before this album, and liked it, but hadn’t bought any of his albums. This actually isn’t my favorite Petty album. I think Wildflowers is a stronger album, or at least it’s the one I listen to most often. But, I think this one had a bigger impact on my musical taste and songwriting.
