This is a superb Heartbreakers record, containing some of Tom Petty's best compositions ever. This album can compete to be one of the top 5 Tom Petty albums There are the two major singles: Learning To Fly and Into The Great Wide Open, which are two of Tom Petty's best songs ever. The slight intonations in Petty's voice when he sings "well some say life, will beat you down, break your heart, steal your crown" are stunning, reverberating through my very soul. Because of this, I honestly prefer Learning To Fly to Free Fallin', it's one of my favourite songs, period. But the album offers far more than just those two songs! My favourite is Two Gunslingers, an inspired story-driven peace anthem that features some of Petty's best lyrics ever. It's a masterpiece. Then there's the fantastic sing-a-long "The Dark Of The Sun", just try not to chime in with Petty on the chorus, it's irresistibly good. Petty's writing was on fire in '91, we are rewarded with another fantastic chorus on "King's Highway", a great highway tune. Petty returns to familiar territory in "All Or Nothin", a spit-firing rocker with a typical love-gone-bad narrative, for some reason I can never get enough of these songs! This album has some filler tracks, but they're great filler! "Makin' Some Noise" absolutely rocks. "Too Good To Be True" and "You And I Will Meet Again" are probably the weakest tracks on the album, you might not remember them once the album is over, but they're solid tracks nonetheless. And I have to mention the absolutely brilliant solo on "Out Of The Cold", Campbell nails the solo on this fast paced number, one of my favourite moments on the album. And though people tend to pick on Jeff Lynne's production, it offers something different in Petty's catalogue, distinguishing itself from Jimmy Iovine's sound, and the spare arrangements of Full Moon Fever. The production has a vaguely eastern vibe, with its layered acoustic guitars and some fantastic stabs of guitar from Mike Campbell. This record is truly unique sounding.The album ends with the heartfelt "Built To Last". It's a great song in the vein of "Louisiana Rain" and "You Can Still Change Your Mind". The lyrics are brilliant, it's a great way to end an overwhelmingly positive album. Like Full Moon Fever, it's an album filled with tentative hope and optimism. Into The Great Wide Open is a memorable and occasionally beautiful album. It is absolutely a worthy sequel to Full Moon Fever. It is a must-have.[Edit: Having heard of Tom Petty's passing, I just want to say how much his music means to me. How much I really loved him, even though I never met him. There was something about him, something deep and spiritual that is captured in his music. He was the greatest rock n roller I have ever known. Rest In Peace Tom.]

A somewhat overlooked body of work in Tom's catalogue, perhaps because this is to Full Moon Fever what Hard Promises was to Damn the Torpedoes: the next one up after a legitimate classic, with a very similar sound but not quite the same level of consistent attention-grabbing. But while 'Learning to Fly' and the title track are the singles (and MTV videos) that people remember, a number of album cuts are still very good; 'Out in the Cold' and 'King's Highway' are two of the Heartbreakers' best ever fast paced hard rockers, while the closing doo-wop flavoured 'Built to Last' is one of their nicest ballads. Much better than it's given credit for in the wake of FMF.

One of the Heartbreakers finest albums. It's not Torpedoes or Hard Promises, but it's easily every bit as good as FMF.

Over the years I've listened to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, one album resonates as their magnum opus and that is 1991's 'Into The Great Wide Open' The production is clean cut, sounding like a fully fledged ELO Album, but with Petty and his band playing ever so exciting songs like King's Highway and All The Wrong Reasons. The southern flare of some of these songs perfectly embodies Petty and his band. That's not all though. Fun singalongs of You and I Will Meet Again and Learning to Fly are throughout the album and one of Petty's defining moments, if not his crowning achievement, the title track. Jeff Lynne produces a fantastic sounding album that is timeless to the core. Fans of Petty or People who want to see one of the last classic rock albums ever released in the 1956-1993 era must listen to this. Into The Great Wide Open is clean, but superb.4.5/5

Very much a similar record to its predecessor, Into The Great Wide Open has some strong songs and some underrated tracks, but this time the production of Jeff Lynne dilutes some of the album's charm. Still, it brings Petty into the 90s rather nicely, and the Heartbreakers fall in well behind their leader. Petty's writing is well-matched with the music, as he collaborates with both Lynne and fellow Heartbreaker Mike Campbell, which proves to be a winning combination. Key tracks are Learning To Fly, Into The Great Wide Open, Two Gunslingers, and Built To Last.

I'm a big Jeff Lynne fan but I don't necessarily want to hear his influence on other artists. Full Moon Fever was a neat little discursion but the Traveling Wilburys really exhausted my patience with this kind of stuff.
