ECHO was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. "Room At The Top" was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.
In his 24th year of recording, Tom Petty shows you can age gracefully in a medium known for its rampant ageism. ECHO finds Petty putting together a veiled confessional that refers indirectly to a recent separation from his wife. As always, Heartbreakers Mike Campbell (who helped out with production), Howie Epstein, and Ben Tench provide a solid musical bed for songs largely populated by female protagonists. "Free Girl Now" sounds an insistent message of liberation, "Lonesome" finds Petty using a forlorn twang to bid a heartfelt farewell to a lover who then goes on the road in search of adventure in "Swingin'" as harmonica and guitar steadily wail away.
In dealing with his interpersonal roadblocks, Petty remains a sturdy optimist. He picks himself up off the floor amidst a flurry of Campbell's sitar-flavored leads during "Won't Last Long," and bounces back from taking it on the chin on "Billy The Kid," which Tench peppers with swirling Clavinet and organ. Elsewhere, the native Floridian and his Heartbreakers go from impersonating the Byrds on "This One's For Me" to conjuring up pure rock & roll alchemy on the rollicking "About To Give Out" before wrapping things up with the bittersweet "One More Day, One More Night."
