MojoThe Mudcrutch reunion is a refreshing tweak to the comfy old Petty band chemistry. [July 2008, p.108]
Mudcrutch is a grand old slice of classic country rock that not only serves as Petty’s finest work in almost a decade but is a mighty fine incentive for any long-defunct group with a hankering to dust off the drama and head back into the studio to quit their harboring and just go for it.
All these happy concessions, along with the strong emphasis on instrumental interplay, give Mudcrutch the feeling of a true band effort, and even if it's not perfect--it is indeed possible to amble and ramble just a little bit too much--it's thoroughly winning because of its imperfections, as this is music that's all about cruising down the back roads on a sunny nostalgic day.
Q Magazine'Scare Easy,' the single, and 'Bootleg Flyer,' reminiscent of Petty's classic 'American Girl,' are the standouts on this collection of rough and ragged, feel-good country-rock. [July 2008, p.107]

hippophileMay 18, 2008Having been a big fan of Petty's rock'n'roll, and a alt-county/americana freak, the merging of the two on Mudcrutch blows me away!

TomW.May 19, 2008Very enjoyable listening--not Tom Petty's best, but very nice nonetheless.
Oct 6, 2016Great fusion of classic Heartbreakers' rock with a taste of Petty's Florida homeland. This country-infused record is a lot of fun, my onlyGreat fusion of classic Heartbreakers' rock with a taste of Petty's Florida homeland. This country-infused record is a lot of fun, my only complaint would be that the album has a few too many filler tracks, it would be a tighter album if they cut it down to maybe 12 tracks. My favourite tracks are "Scare Easy" "The Wrong Thing To Do" "Bootleg Flyer" and "Lover Of The Bayou".… Expand
