After reading the above story, I found the following excerpt interesting:

********
In 1988, Tom Petty was part of the supergroup the Traveling Wilburys with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne. Now, there is no way that you could be in a band with Harrison, Dylan and Orbison and not have some of their magic rub off on you. In my opinion, Tom Petty’s songwriting and therefore his music was more consistent and of higher quality after his work with the Wilburys than before that time, and the proof is in the pudding.

“Full Moon Fever” from 1989, “Wildflowers” from 1994, 1999’s “Echo” and 2006’s “Highway Companion” are four of their five best records, with the other being “Damn the Torpedoes.”

********

So, is the author (Rock Cesario) saying that Full Moon Fever and Highway Companion are two of the four best albums because Harrison, Dylan and Orbison's magic rubbed of on Petty? What's wrong with this picture?

Once again Jeff Lynne is the invisible man.
