Format: Audio CD
Being quite familiar with The Wallflowers' previous albums, I looked forward to "Rebel, Sweetheart" with much pleasurable expectation. This collection of songs is astonishing! Each song and soundscape paints a lyrical picture in the form of The Wallflowers' best work. Jakob Dylan has produced lyrics encompassing all the richness of experience; some common observations are made especially profound, as in "God Says Nothing Back" where Dylan expresses a sense of assured wonder in his views on God, time, love and death. Each song on this album is especially unique in that sense, and beyond those common ideas, the songs address the deeper themes of loneliness, yearning, human fallibility, and ultimately the power of persistence. We are sometimes redeemed by the narrator through the lyrics, though that happens especially often through the music. Notice how you might think "Hey, sounds like he means something different than how the music makes me feel about what I just heard..." An astonishing lyricist and band has given us so much! On "Rebel, Sweetheart" The Wallflowers take their influences and make something of their own better than so many other bands.
Consider the final song, as "all things [become] new again", those new things are much like they were before. Only now, it's most important that we learn how to make the best of what's there through some hint of positive thinking. This positive light, you may notice in the song "From the Bottom of My Heart," is often hard to come by within the individual, though hopefully "we" could become a better group of individuals with a more positive inward light that translates into a better outlook on things.

5 tracks into this I was already mentally compiling a relatively negative review to this one. Then along came God says nothing back, and the whole direction of the album changed. The first few tracks aren't bad , just a little samey with a rather muddy production sound-think mediocre Tom Petty-the next 8,maybe with the exception of All things new again, are the ticket though. Overall then pretty damn good but not up to Bringing down the horse.

I chose this product as I love the wallflowers previous albums and wanted to complete my collection. Jakob Dylan is such a gifted songwriter, I listened to the album several time through when it arrived. The service was great too. I ordered it on the sunday and it arrived by Wednesday. Previously, I've had trouble when ordering online but this arrived sooner than expected and in great condition.

The first Wallflowers album I came across was the excellent 'Bringing Down The Horse' way back in 1996 (their second album). This cd, bought as part of a 2 for £9 Amazon deal (still waiting for the second cd after 2 months and counting by the way ), from 2005 is an easy listen but not too many standout tracks.

The Wallfowers are Back with another Classic 24 May 2005
By Leopold 'Butters' Stotch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best Wallflowers release to date and it is the best release I have heard this year (Amos Lee and Springsteen close behind.) The songs here show depth and character that we don't really get to see in music today. The range of sound here is perfect and the whole CD from beginning to end is a great listen. So put away your Killers, Green Day, and whatever else you have clogging your ears and listen an album that feels like the artists are deeply connected to their music and they care about what they are releasing. You have to give them credit they have consistantly put put great material.

Another great showing 9 July 2005
By Lotus Mystique - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Wallflowers are helplessly underrated leaving me to question why. I have been a fan since their first release The Wallflowers in 1992. Listening to their sound grow with every album you're able to witness the evolution of their sound and appreciate their commitment to quality. Rebel, Sweetheart is yet another great staple for a music lovers collection as it blends a deep acoustic sound with thoughtful lyrics. This album is sure to make new fans as well as please those of us who have been enjoying their sound for a while.

Rebel, Sweetheart: Classic rock for troubled times 25 May 2005
By Justin Thyme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Wallflowers return with their 5th, and strongest, album. Each of the 12 songs are engaging, thought-provoking, melodic, and layered. Producer Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), brings his signature techniques to the album, layering the songs with various guitars, keys, and vocals. The textured sounds give the songs depth-each time you listen, you hear something new. Every song is written by Jakob Dylan, whose songwriting talents are in top form. The themes in the songs reflect the title of the album: a tension between fighting who & where you are vs. finding contentment in being that person in that place. Dylan paints a lot of situations where a fight is warranted. In "Here He Comes (Confessions of a Drunken Marionette)" an exploited puppet realizes there might be a way out, "They sing Auld Lang Syne/I've got mutiny on my mind." A song with a unique and catchy sound, "I Am A Building," portrays a character who is defeated, closed, & abandoned. But then sees things differently: "Things are looking clear now/My eyes are wide enough to see the way a sniper does." Or, in "Back to California," there's a promise of hope by returning to the way things were. Finally, in "From The Bottom of My Heart," a beautiful ballad with minimal instrumentation accompanying Dylan's honest vocals, we learn the lesson of the perseverance of "an army of one/Marching back up the steps/Into the rays of the sun." There are many ways to rebel. And then sometimes, it's best to accept. A stand out track, "We're Already There," is just one song that explores this side of acceptance. The most emotive song on the album, "God Says Nothing Back" rings of despair with the realization that neither God, time, love, nor death say anything back. The lesson is in the title of the song "How Far You've Come," with a message about altering our perspective instead of the world around us. And finally, "Nearly Beloved," a contradictory song: upbeat in tempo but full of struggle and acceptance suggests, "if we could do better I know that we would/Maybe admit it now/we're not that good."

While some may fight everything and err on the side of being always the rebel, others may resign themselves to accepting "whatever comes my way," this compilation of songs reminds us that it's more complex than that. Instead, there's a delicate and beautiful balance between resistance and acceptance. The beauty is in finding happiness in both roles ... perhaps when one both resists and accepts, they also find "The Beautiful Side of Somewhere." When a bunch of rock'n'roll songs, with catchy lines and foot-tapping melodies can teach us life lessons that profound, that is good music. The Wallflowers' Rebel, Sweetheart is superb music.

Excellent songs with standard Wallflowers sound 29 May 2005
By Jed Shlackman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This release by The Wallflowers is packed with well-written songs and solid musicianship and production. Thoughtful lyrics and solid melodies make the Wallflowers stand out. Some of these tunes are more bluesy or mellow/folk-influenced than others, while Jake Dylan's vocals are well suited to the varied songs and have a soulful quality that defines the band's sound. From the Bottom of My Heart is the most folk-influenced song, while Back To California is the most rock-oriented. The album begins with songs that have an upbeat feel, like Days of Wonder and the Passenger, while it becomes more wistful and bluesy with tracks like Confessions of a Drunken Marionette, God Says Nothing Back, and How Far You've Come, all pleasing rootsy rock tunes that should suit the tastes of existing Wallflowers fans. It's not that often I hear a rock album like this with song after song of soulful, poetic, and melodic tunes that are captivating enough for me to not feel like skipping tracks when I listen to the album.

Growing, Growing, Not Gone! 25 May 2005
By T-Bone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Wallflowers are a delight to listen to. If ever a dull moment manifests itself into your life, insert "Rebel, Sweetheart" into the nearest CD player and be prepared for a carnival of sounds. This is was songwriting is about. "You'd have a wonderful day if you could see how lucky you are. Don't get carried away with your heart. You're better where you are." After the less than stellar response "Red Letter Days" received, I feared The Wallflowers days as radio busters were numbered. And although they still may be, at least the music loving public has been blessed with one more outing by Dylan Jr. and his alliance of bandmates, together known as The Wallflowers.
