  • This is where Petty's Dylan influence begins to rear its head. He made his name as an all-American, Byrds-inspired rock & roller, but on HARD PROMISES Petty began to explore a more reflective style, leaning on the softer side of his folk-rock roots. This is no NEBRASKA-there are plenty of spirited rockers and classy pop tunes-but Petty does sound like he's been spending some time with BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME. There are sharply observed character studies of hard-luck and no-luck guys ("Something Big," "Nightwatchman"), urgent power-pop declarations of romantic desperation ("A Thing About You") and even some light-hearted socio-cultural observations ("King's Road"). HARD PROMISES is Petty's first step towards the eclecticism that would mark his later work, and it's easily his most underrated album.
Professional Reviews
Q (8/01, p.154) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A sourer world-view had crept in, and 'King's Road' finds him confused by the fashion sense of the Brits and being sold drugs by a 'Pakistani man'..."

CMJ (1/5/04, p.8) - Ranked #6 in CMJ's "Top 20 Most-Played Albums of 1981"
