No Tom Petty would be a HEARTBREAKER! Would love to see the Indy show and hear some MOJO in person... "No Reason To Cry" and "Candy" in the set would be to much to ask for!

I am a lifelong listener of Tom Petty and The Hearbreakers. I grew up on them as a kid after my mother died and just never let go, this band has done a lot for me. The original idea of a blues album simply astonished me, why not? I thought. Wham! MOJO pounds out some amazing tunes, with my favorite picks being 'Running man's bible', 'Trip to pirates cove', 'Let yourself go', and 'Something good coming'. This is a band that hasn't not let me down yet, and what would the world be like for Tom Petty and Heartbreakers without the all star amazing group they are! MOJO's variety makes it even more engrossing, and the lyrics (as with any great TP and the HB's album) are perfect. 'Trip to pirates cove' - "She was a part of my life, now she's just a line in my face", who hasn't felt this way about someone they loved and lost? Of course a lot of us know about hard work, so from 'Something good coming'- "And I'm an honest man, work's all i know, you take that away, don't know where to go", so many of us are hard workers and sadly a lot of us have lost our jobs due to economy and other reasons so this speaks to the people. I'll close this review and history for now, but just have to say I can't wait already for more! God bless Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench (best rock n roll name still!), Ron Blair (was super glad to see you return), Scott Thurston, and Steve Ferrone(couldn't pick a better man for drums)! Thanks again, and P.S. this is all from a gay man.

So much of The Hearbreakers' amazing talent comes out blaring in this album, MOJO spans five decades of Rock and Blues allowing this group of Hall of Famers to showcase their roots and personal musical tastes. Dynamite! Led from the beginning by over the top guitar play of Mike Campbell and Tom Petty, this album comes at you pulsing from those Vox Amps and vintage instruments those boys have been collecting for years. And straight to the point - Mike Campbell's lead guitar- Whoa! Tom set up the songs perfectly to highlight Mike's vastly underrated skills (- how in H-E-Double Hockey Sticks does Mike Campbell not be included in the Top 100 of Rolling Stones Magazine's Greatest Guitar players? What is up with that?). And Benmont Tench with his graceful piano play and organ weaving through out, most excellent. So solid drum and bass lines from Steve Ferrone and Ron Blair (done live on one take over at their Encino warehouse- amazing...) along with all the expected superb "Swiss Army Knife" support from Scott Thurston. What a nice band! Tom Petty's songwriting and lyrics through out MOJO are just outstanding- some real beauties in there, reminding me at times of the many great Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter collaborations: Jeff Jericho Blues - kept the secret under the bed...wrapped up in a burlap sack. Well she ain't no good for me, but I just can't let go....... I Should Have Known It - every promise, was just a run around..... sold down the river, left for dead... Thanks for nothing, yea thanks a lot..... (love the cranker at the end of the song- gotta be a great live song!) Good Enough - she was hell on her mama, impossible to please, she wore out her daddy, got the best of me.... God Bless this land, God Bless this whiskey, I can't trust love... its far too risky..... The Trip to Pirates Cove - we'll let's get out a Santa Cruz- all I got is a Canadian dime.......I got a friend in Mendicino and it's getting close to Harvest time...and she was kinda cute, if a little past her prime.......\ About the only thing missing on this classic album is an Honest to God Garcia/Petty diddley going on about the little-girl-on-a-train-going-to-visit-her-dad-in-prison-as-told-by-the-conductor-ballad! Maybe Tom will get that together for their next album. This album is just terrific and we just adore The Heartbreakers. With family members ranging from 11 years old thru 55 years old, this band continues to offer outstanding music for all generations.

Not many bands have the ability to release an album so different than their others and make it work. Furthermore, not many bands have the balls or desire. Yet it goes unsaid that not many bands wield the power or vast collection of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. So how can they release an album that fuses raw blues, feel good tunes, and even a hint of reggae? The answer is simple: they're Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, what can't they do? Combine all this with the fact that they produced the entire album live and you're left with pure, true music, the Heartbreaker style. In a way, Mojo represents a "reinvention" of the band's sound. Songs like "I Should Have Known It" and "Running Man's Bible" deliver a sense of passion and urgency, just as strong as when the band first formed. These tracks also promote another front man, lead guitarist Mike Campbell. With each riff and tasty lick, you can't help but ask why Campbell is still so underrated. "Candy" will be sure to put a smile on your face and have you listening to it over and over again. No wonder it's called "candy," the simple but unique blues progression is irresistible and addicting. At the same time, "reinvention" is the worst way to describe the album because as Tom said, it is the true sound of the Heartbreakers. Though the album is different, songs like "Something Good Coming" and "Good enough" are reminiscient of the Heartbreaker's unwavering resilience and passion, attributes they still carry after so many years. Above all, MOJO is a breath of fresh air during a time when modern music just doen't cut it. It is a glimmer of hope that at least one band can still do it right. As a seventeen year old, I listen to my father speak constantly of the Tom Petty of the late 70's and Full Moon Fever. Now I will never stop bragging about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on SNL '10 or the honor of having their greatest work to date released in my generation.

Being a Petty fan for decades, MOJO continues to reflect the passion that we all look forward to in a great new release or SHOW... like Indy!

MOJO is good! I like it!

The more I listen to the album, the more I like it. My 7 year old is already requesting to hear the album as soon as we get into the car.

Weather is looking good for the Saturday night show in Indy! Can't wait to find out what songs they've added to the play list!

Mojo is a wonderful album of songs that tell stories of love, future hopes, and, as with one particular song, Candy, just gitty happiness. It is hard to simply categorize Mojo as a rock ‘n roll album or a blues album or any other musical genre. The songs in Mojo are compilations of many genres: I Should Have Known It and First Flash of Freedom – true rock & roll; Jefferson Jericho Blues and Running Man’s Bible – blues-rock; Don’t Pull Me Over – reggae and Lover’s Touch – jazzy. Mojo is unique and timeless just like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

MOJO is a journey. MOJO is a road trip and, whether travelling alone or with friends, it is an adventure. Each trip through the tracks is a new experience. Something missed on the last visit is discovered on the next. When the journey is finished, like all great road trips, you don't want it to end. You want to go back and start all over again...... MOJO heightens your senses, wakes you up; and enriches your soul.

I love Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers! I could listen to their songs over and over--and I really like the sound of this cd.

This new album has me soo excited! There is something about Mojo that is different from any of the Heartbreakers other albums, but that doesen't matter its still great. Keep the hits coming Tom and the Heartbreakers! 30 plus years and still making the best music around!

This album is definitely one of TP's best. It has a nice mix of tracks - some with energy and some that are a bit more mellow. They cover a variety of music styles (reggae, blues, rock, etc). Mike Cambell really shines on the guitar. This is real, honest music played with the maturity and experience the band has gained over their many years of making tunes. I wouldn't say there are any chart toppers on here, but all of the tracks are solid. On a side note, I really hope I can win these tickets for my fiancee's birthday! She would be so excited!

My husband and I have listened to this cd nonstop for the past couple weeks. It has a very bluesy feel with familiar chords and rifs. " The First Flash of Freedom" and "Trip to Pirate's Cove" are no doubt instant classics. "I Should Have Known It" and "Jefferson Jericho Blues" have a great feel to them. "Don't Pull Me Over' is intriguing, sneaks up on you, and you will be singing along the first time you hear it. Great album! Now give me my free tickets!

Mojo is an impressive album from Petty and the Heartbreakers...it has an old school sound...re-energizing Southern rock without the marketing machine selling it!!! I LOVE "I Should've Known It"... Can't wait for the Indianapolis show!!!

I didn't think they could top "Wildflowers"! This album is great and I don't think I could choose just one favorite song! By the way, Tom's book is great reading and I just couldn't put it down. Thanks for sharing your special gift, guys! Oh yeah, saw you in Indy a few times and thanks for the "Rolling Stone" subscription that came with the tickets! What a nice surprise! Metzger Farms

What an absolutely killer album! As a lifelong fan, my only advise for your first listen to the record is hear it all the way through. The songs are great by themselves, but the record has such a killer groove when heard from start to finish.

The new Mojo piece is another terrific piece of work by The Heartbreakers. Put together with all those great "bluesy" riffs working within much of the album, many nice songs which will work well in live shows and even better- future small venue gigs. Mike Campbell's guitar licks and Benmont Tench's keyboard play through out the entire album are world class. And it is clear, Tom Petty has not lost a step with the vocal portion, both he and the band sound almost perfect -something The Heartbreaker's take very seriously. Jefferson Jericho Blues is a very nice energetic starter and First Flash of Freedom has the near ending by Mike Campbell which has a notion of a hearty Led Zepp II- Jimmy Page lick! The band is just so darn good, putting the album together "live" in the Heartbreaker's own Valley Clubhouse, no doubt these guys are a part of the Rock & Roll elite. True artists, the Mojo album is a treasure and another masterpiece to their awesome collection. We are loving Mojo and we continue to play it - over and over again!

After listening to MOJO 25 times, I'm ready for 25,000 more! This is the album I've been waiting for since Wildflowers. This album ROCKS!! We finally get a good dose of the Heartbreakers. Everybody is present and accounted for. They always have been but, not like this. Instead of serving the songs, they are the songs. Recorded live on the floor, there are times when you can feel just that. It's almost like the Heartbreakers are there in the room with you. I mean right in front of you. The Blu-ray is going to be AWESOME! Tom Petty has written another MASTERPIECE. The album as a whole fits together like a beautiful puzzle. It's not all blues as some would have you believe. The soft, tasteful ballads Something Good Coming and No Reason To Cry are probably Tom's best ever. Candy is one of the funniest songs I've ever heard. I don't go for them turnip greens either! You have to love Don't Pull Me Over...reggae and relate-able! Tom Petty is obviously on a song writing roll. Though he has stated that he's not writing for radio anymore, he's sure writing for somebody. Himself, his band, and his fans. The die-hard fans appreciate not only Tom but, The Heartbreakers, too. This album gives the fans a big tasty treat. It's Heartbreakers FULL ON! So, if you've got the Jefferson Jericho Blues and you need a Lover's Touch, get your First Flash of Freedom and Let Yourself Go on The Trip to Pirates Cove. There's No Reason To Cry because, there's Something Good Coming. I Should Have Known It. If you like to get High in the Morning then, MOJO is definitely Good Enough.
