REVIEWS
Average points: 4.59 (Reviews: 37)
*****
Der erste Erfolg der Band aus Los Angeles, leider vergessene stimmungsvolle Single. # 40 in den USA Anfang 1978.
****
Nun ja, für mich klingt der Song halt schon irgendwie etwas veraltet, zudem kann ich mit der Melodie deutlich weniger anfangen, als bei ihren neueren Liedern. Nicht schlecht, aber eben auch keine 5.
******
Einer der stärksten Petty Songs überhaupt. "Breakdown" wurde 1978 von Suzy Quatro für ihr Album "If you knew Suzie" gecovert.
******
Muss voyager2 zustimmen. So intensiv und eindringlich, so soulig-bluesig kenne ich Tom Petty kaum. Hier gibt er sich ja richtig Mühe Ausdruck in den Gesang zu legen...

Tolle Melodie, schöner Text. Ein angenehmer Blues. Knappe 5.
******
TOLL
*****
Gutes Riff, schöne bluesige Melodie,.hervorragend
*****
sehr gut
****
...ausdrucksstarker Song im Blues-Stil...untypisch für Tom Petty...aber dennoch nicht schlecht
*****
Ja, ziemlich bluesig, ganz anders als "American Girl " aus demselben Jahr. Hat Tiefe, dieser Song. 5*=.
****
Gut.
****
yepp...starker rock, jedoch im vergleich zu den sachen von jeff lynne (die ich lieber mag) etwas holprig
*****
Klasse! 5-
*****
Tom hat ja doch coole Sachen aufgenommen. Ich kannte bislang nur das Cover von Grace Jones aus dem Jahre 1980 (Album "Warm Leatherette"). Kurzer, starker Song - sein Gesang ist hier mal wirklich weitaus besser.
*****
Nicht nur der beste Song des Debütalbums 1976, auch gesamt einer seiner ultimativen greatest Hits..IT's ALRIGHT!

Gehört absolut zum 70er-Jahre Petty - toll damals. Die Stimme erinnerte hier fast an den Rolling-Stones-Boss
*****
Früher, guter Tom Petty "Klassiker".....
*****
Klassiker

Gehört zu den Herzensliedern von Tom Petty des Classic Rock-Redakteurs Thomas Weiland.

Naja, für die 70er, ne gute 3*.
*****
Sehr schönes Stück.
*****
... toller Song eines großen Künstlers ...
******
... dieses Stück hat nur einen Nachteil ... es ist zu kurz ... genialer Song ...
*****
Starker Song, aber noch nicht typisch. Tom Petty hat es jedoch auch damals schon verstanden, sich bereits bewährter Soundelemente zu bedienen. Hier das für diese Zeit auf amerikanischen Produktionen oft zu hörende Wurlitzer-Piano.
****
Cool song.
****
lässig präsentiertes, bluesiges Rockstück aus den 70er – 4+…
*****
Good
*****
Früher Klassiker der Band, ganz stark.
****
...gut...
***
Das war halt der biedere Sound der Siebziger.
**
schwach
****
Ähnlich gut wie das Grace Jones Cover - kann mich nicht entscheiden, wer hier vorne liegt ... ein solider Radio-Song.
****
gefällt mir gut...
****
gut
****
Anständiger erster Hiterfolg in den Staaten, war dort 17 Wochen lang in den Charts !
*****
Sehr gut
****

Lässige Debüt Single von Tom Petty & Co. Erst beim zweiten Release schaffte es die Single in die US Charts.
*****
Starker früher Song von Tom Petty, Mike Campbell & Co.
