Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Southern Accents
Produced by Dave Stewart, Southern Accents is an ambitious album, attempting to incorporate touches of psychedelia, soul, and
country into a loose concept about the modern South. Occasionally, the songs work; "Rebels" and "Spike" are fine rockers, and
"Don't Come Around Here No More" and "Make It Better (Forget About Me)" expand the Heartbreakers' sound nicely. But too
often, the record is weighed down by its own ambitions.
Richard Manuel sings and Garth Hudson plays keyboards on the track "Best of Everything". The song was co-produced by Robbie Robertson.
