Album of the Day
She's the One
When asked for a song to include in writer-director Edward Burns' romantic comedy She's The One, Tom Petty responded with an entire album. Though nominally a film soundtrack, the Warner Bros. collection stands proudly with the singer-songwriter's best work of the 1990s. Cut with producer Rick Rubin and the ever-reliable Heartbreakers, SONGS AND MUSIC FROM “SHE'S THE ONE” has a relaxed feel and eclectic mix of material (including Beck and Lucinda Williams covers) that give the impression Petty was really enjoying himself. Which doesn't mean his customary craftsmanship is absent; the dozen originals include such terrific songs as “Climb That Hill” and single “Walls (Circus),” which features guest vocals from Lindsey Buckingham. Released today in 1996, SHE'S THE ONE is well worth rediscovering.
