Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Hypnotic Eye

Dizzying cover aside, Tom Petty is back in fine form with Hypnotic Eye. He's once again with The Heartbreakers, but, while Mike Campbell, Ron Blair, and Steve Ferrone are reliably on-point, Greg notes that the album as a whole is tighter and more concise than 2010's Mojo. Jim finds Petty to be pleasantly cranky, expressing frustrations with the thwarted“American Dream”and those who remain down-and-out. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers earn a double Buy It for Hypnotic Eye.

So, Jim uses his turn at the Desert Island Jukebox to remember the music. He plays a song about addiction, "Chinese Rocks," which was written by fellow punk legends Dee Dee Ramone and Richard Hell, and performed by Thunders and his band The Heartbreakers in 1977.
