If there’s one thing I can say for sure, well, for the most part, it’s that up to this point Tom Petty has never really been big on distilling a philosophy of any sort, unlike say Bruce Springsteen. One always comes up short with Petty in this area, where he reveals himself in fragments and as fragmented. So far, chronologically, what the Heartbreakers deliver is mostly straight ahead music to be played at his fans, yet not emotionally embracing them, leaving those fans no place to inject their own dreams and aspirations in-between his lines, yet alone giving those folks a space to breathe.

With that in mind, we seem to be presented here with a version of Tom Petty who’s turned a corner on Southern Accents, ready to be a bit more open and embracing. What I didn’t like about the character whom he seems to be standing in for, or is speaking through Tom, is the affected southern boy still smarting from the American Civil War, still one hundred years on, obsessed with the idea that the rest of the country is making fun of his accent, along with what Tom considers his cultural heritage. Part of that cultural heritage, though not mentioned on the album is racism, where he prominently featured the Confederate flag on stage during his supporting tour for this record, though he now regrets that flag waving, saying, “It was downright stupid, it was like waving a swastika in front of a Jewish person.” Nevertheless, that’s the backdrop to this album, the theme of the album, walking between two worlds, one which holds his history and convictions, along with those of the wider world which dictate what is correct and proper.

(laughing) Yet just as we’re immersed into the character and baggage of this rebel, willing to hear how this loser survives once bailed out of jail by his girlfriend and then promptly dumped by the side of the road, this character, this spokesmen, disappears … and with that disappearance, so drifts off any cohesiveness the album may have been able to bring to light. This of course leaves the album with but one great song, “Don’t Come Around Here No More.” All of this seems to me as being far too completed and far to expansive for a single great song, where Petty as quickly as he came out, steps back into the shadows, compartmentalizing this beliefs and attitudes, at the time leaving me feeling that Tom Petty may not be an artist whom I wish to invest too much time with, though as we know with 20/20 hindsight, Tom turned out to be a much better man than we glimmered here.

Of course this brings me to the album’s title Southern Accents, which encompasses much, the first being those actual spoken southern accents, though accents can also stand-in for beliefs, regional attitudes, and outdated traditions, with Tom saying, ”I was just thinking about the average young guy down there (in the south) who’s brought up in this tradition that tells you, 'This is the way it has always been and the way it should be.' I'm not just talking about jobs, but a whole way of living,” Petty said of the song “Rebels”. ”In the song, the guy is born with it all lined up against him, but for some reason he just can't get in line and play the way he's supposed to.” Without a doubt, this is a character Petty recognized from his own past, from within himself on his personal journey out of the deep South. ”I never bought into the idea of having your life laid out for you and I got out, but a lot of them never do. It’s hard to understand why, but that tradition is so strong that they don't ever realize that two hours in any direction gets you somewhere else. I could see the creases in the curtain at a real early age. One thing that helped me break away was music.”

It’s important to contextually understand all of this when listening to Southern Accents, as it’s not at all just about the music, it was about Petty, the times and the changing of those times. While the album may have been a success, it was bittersweet on more than one level, as he’d soon split from the band, steeped in self destructive habits. One of the most telling aspects of the album was that Tom was working on it for more than a year, trying to bring it into focus and failing so badly that he simply had to realize that it was what it was and move on.

Despite the music being infused with that jangling rock that the Heartbreakers are known for, on diving more deeply, I’ve never figured out what I should carry away from this release, so I seldom play it, it’s all too uncomfortable and disjointed for my liking.

*** The Fun Facts: The album’s cover features the 1865 painting “The Veteran In A Field” by Winslow Homer … another telling reminder of the American Civil War and its consequences.

Anyone can see the embossed warner logo in it? or it is a mistake?
