It’s difficult to consider any portion of Tom Petty‘s catalog as objectively unappealing. Even his less-celebrated records include some hidden nuggets.

By his own admission, the period that yielded the songs for 1994’s Wildflowers and 1996’s Songs and Music From ‘She’s the One’ was his most prolific. And as many songwriters can attest, heartbreak and loss often prompts the best art.  So, it’s clear why Petty’s estate has chosen to revisit this era again on Angel Dream (Songs and Music From the Motion Picture She’s the One), a remixed, remastered and reimagined album of tracks that originally appeared on the 1996 LP with the Heartbreakers.

‘She’s The One’ was originally a great way to include some of the songs that didn’t make it on to Wildflowers, but it has its own thing to it, its own charm, and putting it out now in a restructured form makes for a sweet little treat,” Heartbreaker Benmont Tench said of ‘Angel Dream’ in an interview.

Three years after Petty’s death, Angel Dream, though less expansive than 2020’s Wildflowers and All the Rest, arrives like another piece of buried treasure from his archive. It’s another glimpse into the world of one of rock’s most trusted songwriters.
