Between his solo career and his work with the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty released a lot of albums during his life. But which of them is the greatest? That's what we want to know during this week's Loudwire Nights Album of the Week poll.
You'll have until Friday at 12N ET to cast your votes. We’ll then play the three tracks from the album with the most votes during Loudwire Nights' Album of the Week block to start the following Monday's show!
Petty is one of the most commercially successful artists of the classic rock era. He formed Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1976, and the group released an eponymous debut album later that year, which featured "American Girl" and "Breakdown." The record followed by You're Gonna Get It! two years later, and then Damn the Torpedoes, which came out in '79, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. This was the band's highest-charting album until Mojo came out in 2010.
The rocker also released three albums as a solo artist — 1989's Full Moon Fever, 1994's Wildflowers and 2006's Highway Companion — all of which peaked in the Top 5 of the albums chart. For the sake of this poll, we've included both his solo albums, and the ones he put out with the Heartbreakers, in order chronologically of when they came out.
Head below to vote for your favorite Tom Petty album, then tune into Loudwire Nights next Monday at 7PM ET to find out which record prevailed. During tonight's show, you'll get to find out which Incubus album was voted the best, and hear three songs from the winner.
