More than a quarter-century after Tom Petty's Wildflowers was first released, it can finally be heard the way the singer-songwriter intended. When he turned in 25 songs, hoping for a double album, Warner Bros. asked him to pare it down to one. But just three years past his death, his family and Heartbreakers bandmates Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell (technically a solo release, Wildflowers features most of the band) have restored the record to its original glory and added in a trove of home demos, alternate takes and live tracks—some 70 songs in all. Produced by Rick Rubin while Petty's decades-old marriage was crumbling and he was reportedly battling heroin addiction, the 1994 release remains one of the all-time great break-up records; heard all together, the extended LP (the All The Rest part is produced Petty's longtime engineer Ryan Ulyate) Petty is a deeper devastating beauty. "New" tracks like the Byrds-y "Leave Virginia Alone," tender "Something Could Happen" and psychedelic Beatles-meets-Wall of Sound "Somewhere Under Heaven" are a comfortable coda to classics such as "You Don't Know How It Feels" and "It's Good to Be King." Extra track "Hope You Never" is a gorgeous, direct complement to old favorite "Only a Broken Heart." As perfect as the original album has always played, it's hard to imagine not including the swaying After the Gold Rush-esque "Hung Up & Overdue" (with backing vocals by Beach Boy Carl Wilson) or sunny, jangling "California" (which also shows up in a demo version, with a telling extra verse: "Don’t forgive my past/ I forgive my enemy/ Don’t know if it lasts/ Gotta just wait and see"). Dig into the home recordings, and it's an even bigger mystery why the harmonica-inflected "There Goes Angela" and plaintive "There's a Break in the Rain (Have Love Will Travel)" weren't contenders over, say, the Celtic-flavored "Don't Fade on Me." Chalk part of that first-listen awe up to the intimacy of these solo demos, which also cast a new, revelatory light on the gently folksy title track and "You Don't Know How It Feels." Live non-album favorites "Girl on LSD" and "Drivin' Down to Georgia" are captured here, along with a blistering "Honey Bee" and lovely takes on "You Wreck Me" and "Crawling Back to You." Tench has recalled Petty calling Wildflowers "the best record we ever made." Now it's even better. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

The Flaming Lips' catalog includes songs about pink robots invading the planet and drummer Steven Drozd's lie about a staph infection in his hand (it was heroin-related, not a spider bite). But the band may have topped their usual out-there factor with American Head, their 16th album. Written after the 2017 death of Tom Petty, it's a fantasy concept: imagined lost songs recorded by Petty and his early '70s band Mudcrutch, if they'd taken drugs supplied by Lips frontman Wayne Coyne's brother's drug-dealing friends. It also weaves in Coyne's own memories of his youth in Tulsa, OK. If you can suspend your disbelief—and if you're listening to a Flaming Lips record, that likely isn't a problem—it's a free-floating trip of spaced-out bliss. All that floatiness means it's not their catchiest (and this is a band capable of writing a killer hook). But it is lovely, laden with emotionally charged strings and Drozd's commanding percussion. "Will You Return When You Come Down" layers dreamy harmonies and lush piano with earthy guitar and Coyne's trademark wavering warble. "Flowers of Neptune 6" is a hazy celebration of acid experimentation. Admitted LSD fan Kacey Musgraves lends guest vocals to that track as well as "Watching the Light-bugs Glow"; low in the mix, she can be heard talking about one of her own trips. There are two truly epic moments. "Mother I've Taken LSD" is a Syd Barrett-esque ballad—majestic drums, sweeping strings—about Coyne's older brother telling their mom he'd taken acid, and how much this scared a young Coyne. "Mother Please Don't Be Sad" is about Coyne working as a fry cook at Long John Silver's and being held up at gunpoint—and imagining his mom getting the news that he'd died. And it is, against all odds, absolutely gorgeous. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz
