HUGE news for Tom Petty fans

Thanks to the good people of the Mudcrutch forum [link], here's an exclusive Rolling Stone piece regarding the new, upcoming record by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. David Fricke describes the album, coolly titled Hypnotic Eye, a "decisive return to the concise Sixties-rock classicism and drive of Petty's first great New Wave-era albums, 1976's Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and 1978's You're Gonna Get It." I love the sound of that! Another mouthwatering surprise for fans will be the long-awaited reissue of 1994's classic Wildflowers, and a possible live album taken from the band's NYC & LA theater residences last year. Man, those setlists were out of this world. Can't wait!
