Long After Dark

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Riding high on the back-to-back Top Five platinum hits Damn the Torpedoes and Hard Promises, Tom Petty quickly returned to the studio to record the Heartbreakers' fifth album, Long After Dark. Truth be told, there was about as long a gap between Dark and Promises as there was between Promises and Torpedoes. There are a few new wave flourishes here and there, but the band hasn't really changed its style at all -- it's still Stonesy, Byrdsian heartland rock.

    So Great, So Overlooked!

    Released just after the hit "Hard Promises", this album has been overlooked. Everybody wants either the commercial hit, "Damn the Torpedos" or the jangly-guitar poetry of "Full Moon Fever". However, I'll tell you, there's nothing like hearing Tom's dark side of writing. The song "Straight Into Darkness" shows you that side you wish you had more of. That unsure, blind, musician who won't give in no matter how bad it looks. I especially love it when he says, "I don't believe the good times are over/I don't believe the thrill is all gone/Real love is a man's salvation/The weak one's fall, the strong carry on"-GREAT!
