This album is just damn good fun--a great collection of easy-going rock songs, crafted not to change the world, but certainly to make it just a little brighter. Petty's first solo project (without the Heartbreakers), FULL MOON FEVER shares the goodtime feel of the Traveling Wilburys' contemporary "Handle With Care." This is not altogether surprising; Jeff Lynne co-produced and George Harrison and Roy Orbison guest. The only non-Petty composition is a version of Gene Clark's "Feel A Whole Lot Better," while "Zombie Zoo," a bewildered parent's diatribe on the kids of today, comes perilously close to social commentary.
