BC Feature: The Listening Room

As if I don't contribute enough to BC, DJR has a new feature, The Listening Room, which I will try to contribute to as well. This week's Listen feature goes live tomorrow on BC, but here is mine (and everyone else's):

"The Golden Rose" from Highway Companion by Tom Petty

I am late to the Highway Companion party because someone took a number of months to gift this gem to me. But this gift was worth the wait.

Highway Companion as a whole reminds me of older Petty, and that is just fine with me. The instrumentation is so warm and rich, a stark contrast to his last record with The Hearbreakers - which makes this album all the more enjoyable.

"Saving Grace" may be the hook to bring you into this album, but one of the slower songs, "The Golden Rose," really brings back that slow-burning, mellow Petty vibe. It is such a relaxing tune to listen to, and a great way to end the album.

Even if you don't own Playback (wait a minute, you dont?) and are not a die hard Petty fan, you can still get a lot out of this album. Sadly there are far too few albums released these days you can listen to from beginning to end, but this is one of them.
