  1. Tuneful and gently flowing, Mojo is endowed with the qualities diehards expect from Tom ''Watch Me Rock Out Without Breaking a Sweat'' Petty. What it lacks is instant classics (didn't he used to be good for a few per album?).
  2. Petty’s classic pop knack, breezy melodies and laid-back drawl take a back seat to Campbell’s meandering, jammy solos and the album’s overwhelmingly old-guy-blues sound.
  3. The record is long on instrumentals and short on singing, with Petty showing up mostly to fill space between guitar solos and extended jams, giving Mojo a higher Heartbreakers-to-Petty ratio than any previous release. But if Mojo is meant to be the band's showcase, it's not an especially successful one.
