4.0 out of 5 stars Another One From The Dark
When this debut album appeared, the knives were ready and waiting. Jakob Dylan, songwriter and leader of The Wallflowers, is the son of a certain legend known as Bob Dylan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok Album
This is an ok album, but a bit samey. I prefer the other album, "Bringing Down The Horse" which is fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another One From The Dark, 8 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Wallflowers (Audio CD)
When this debut album appeared, the knives were ready and waiting. Jakob Dylan, songwriter and leader of The Wallflowers, is the son of a certain legend known as Bob Dylan. Will he follow in the footsteps of his father? Will he walk in a completely different direction. Yes and no. First of all, Jakob does not sound like his father. His voice is more conventional and easier on the ear than that of Bob, without losing any emotional depth. His writing is in a world of it's own, although on some tracks ("Hollywood", "Somebody Else's Money" and "Honeybee"), he stretches things just a little too far...a habit that Bob was guilty of on occasions. The album combines folk, rock and country in a manner not unlike Counting Crows, early R.E.M. and Toad The Wet Sprocket, but it manages to maintain an identity of it's own. "Sugarfoot" rocks with confident menace. "Shy Of The Moon" is gentle in it's country rock confines and "Asleep At The Wheel" stands as the top track with it's gentle acoustic guitar backing for Jakob's touching lyrics. An honourable mention should also go out to "Sidewalk Annie" and "Honeybee". This album was not as successful as it deserved to be upon release and is still overlooked by the new fans that The Wallflowers have gained from their follow up album "Bringing Down The Horse" and their latest release, "Breach". Those that own these albums should be sure to look back upon this debut album as a fine begginning to a now outstanding band.
