Well, while it looks like I'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon for the Lolla lineup, Mojo did come out at midnight:

Tight. I just hit play on the first track. This is one of the ones he played on SNL, if I remember correctly.

"First Flash of Freedom" is one of the tracks I'd already heard. I'm not too big on it. It's pleasant, but also not very exciting. And the chorus sounds like exactly what you would sing in your head if you thought "How would the chorus on a Tom Petty song called First Flash of Freedom sound?"

Wildflowers is Tom Petty's best album.

That is, unless Let Me Up (I've Had Enough) is offering more than meets the Joe Piscopo.

It's a little predictable, but I do love it, have since the first time I heard it. This and Good Enough are the only tracks I've yet heard.

This album is total Summerfest/Crossroads Festival fare and it's cracking me up. I also have a reason to facebook my father about something now.

Seriously, I think Tom Petty just wrote the ultimate old man album.

Haha.

I know he often gets called "Dad Rock" or even "Mom Rock."

I personally take offense to those labels. But that's probably because I'm biased and love his music so very much.

The plan:

1. Tom Petty makes Mojo
2. Eric Clapton places Tom Petty on his iPhone contacts
3. Depends and patchouli for all

I usually take great offense to it. I wrote a long ranty blog post once about how underrated Tom Petty is as an artist.

But if it looks like Dad Rock, sounds like Dad Rock, and Rocks like Dad Rock, it looks like Tom Petty might've just pwned Dad Rock.
