Money and its corrupting effects on rock music are the subject matter on much of THE LAST DJ, the umpteenth Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album since the band's eponymous 1976 debut. The singer is shocked--shocked!--to find just how insidious the green stuff's effects are on the music business. On hearing this, a listener might reasonably wonder if Tom Petty has spent the last 30 years under a proverbial rock, but being a Tom Petty album, of course, tunes and songcraft are beyond reproach and much may be forgiven.
Both songwriter and listeners find themselves on more familiar ground with "When a Kid Goes Bad," about the kind of kids that make the headlines after criminal misadventures with firearms and the like. The broad rock & roll landscape of "Blue Sunday" is vintage Petty in its minimalist retelling of a brief encounter on the road. "Lost Children" is a heartfelt prayer that develops into an extended guitar jam. Ultimately the plain, unvarnished pop of "You and Me" reveals Tom Petty doing what he does best--telling a simple story simply.
