Leave it to Tom to tell it how it is....
Review written by Blake Havard, September 26th, 2004

I am a Tom Petty fan (what can I say) I will give anything he does a chance. There is some beautiful music on this cd with some lush string arrangements "Dreamville", "Like a Diamond" etc. The song last DJ is a song you can play over and over again. When I first heard it on the radio I thought to myself...OK Tom whats going on? I bought the cd and kept it on repeat. Great lyrics, cool arrangement..a new classic. I love his sence of humour "I bust a move and remember how it was.." I like George Drakoulias's production....Bruce had is response to 9 11 and Tom has his own response to the new world order in relation to what is in his heart..American radio. Way to go Tom and Company! Thanks! I am a musician as well and have been influenced by Tom Petty. Please have a look at my website www.blakehavardmusic.com Thanks!

Amen to Tom for the lyrics but not sure about the rest
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 26th, 2004

Admittedly, I have never been big on lyrics personally, to me the tune is the most important thing in a song. However, this is one of the few cases where I can say that the lyrics on "The last DJ" are the best part of this album. Fed up with where the music business is going (or not going as the case may be) musically, Petty lashes out at record company fat cats & radio management alike telling us what's really going on. One would hope that this will make people stop and listen to what he's saying but unfortunately, this is not the first time in Rock history that an artist has "rebelled" in this fashion and as it obviously had little effect those previous times, I don't feel optimistic about this album influencing positive change in the music business world, we can but hope though. Musically, this is a pretty album as I've found Petty's outings on Warner Brothers to be deeper than his MCA ones as a whole. Sadly, the album suffers from unmemorable tunes for the most part which may help in getting people to listen to the words as they won't get lost in the tunes but this does impact the record on an overall basis. The title track kicks off the album in a somewhat predictable TP jangly rocker vein as being the obvious choice for the single. The song which Lindsey appears on (and you can hear him best at the end mainly) is the whimsical "The man who loves woman" which has a slight "Raindrops keep falling on my head" feel to it which may make fans of Danny Kirwan's similar "ragtime" (as described by Peter Green) type material happy if nothing else but those hoping for a return to "Walls (circus)" type material may be disappointed. The strolling "Money becomes king" coupled with stinging rockers like "When a kid goes bad" and beautiful SOUNDING ballads such as Benmont Tench's elegant chiming piano on "Like a diamond" help remind one of great music from such earlier Petty offerings as "Wildflowers" and "Have love will travel" even slightly harkens back to the "Damn the torpedoes" sound for the Heartbreakers as they blow the dust off of the old organ etc. but again, in most cases these tracks suffer from directionless tunes of any striking significance. It does seem forced in some places as "Lost children" attempts to come up with an "anthem" type of guitar riff commanding attention but when hearing it, you feel as though you've heard it before elsewhere. Once of the worst offenders in this area is the stomping "Joe". However, I find it has the most direct and effective lyrics on the issues mentioned above on the record. It's not all doom and gloom though as there are some colorful arrangements such as the piano, strings & horns on "Dreamville", "Blue Sunday" is a straightforward acoustic doodle, "You and me" is an unusual sounding uptempo acoustic & piano driven ditty and the minor key eerieness that is enclosed on the closing acoustic number (apart from some "exclamation bursts" during the middle sections) "Can't stop the sun" reminds me of ballads such as "Angel dream no. 2" from the "She's the one" soundtrack album and it has a threatening rebellion in it's words towards the music biz bigwigs to the effect of "you can't stop us from finding, listening to and enjoying good music" which is a pleasing ending to those frustrated by such goings on. All in all, I'd have to say this album works best as an "acquired taste" for those who are interested in hearing such "realities" in the lyrics but those wishing to sing along to more good Petty tunes may wish to think twice and look elsewhere first.

From the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Official Website: "Recorded in Los Angeles, the album was produced by George Drakoulias, TOM PETTY and MIKE CAMPBELL. PETTY (Guitars, Bass, Piano, Ukulele, Vocals), CAMPBELL (Guitars, Bass) and BENMONT TENCH (Keyboards) are joined by longtime associates SCOTT THURSTON (Guitar, Lap Steel Guitar, Ukulele) and STEVE FERRONE (Drums). Playing bass on two tracks is RON BLAIR, the Heartbreakers original bass player who left the band after the HARD PROMISES album. He is also playing bass with the Heartbreakers on the current tour. THE LAST DJ features special guests Lindsey Buckingham, who lends background vocals on The Man Who Loves Women, and Jon Brion, who conducts the orchestra as well as arranges orchestrations with Petty on Money Becomes King,, Dreamville and Like A Diamond."
