What big boots to fill ! After several years of bumming around with his band, The Wallflowers' who did not exactly become a household name, Bob Dylan's scion Jakob has cast himself adrift from the anonymity of band membership and launched himself upon the world as a singer/songwriter.
No pressure there then ! Surprisingly, Jakob somehow manages to pull it off by sounding not one jot like his father but a whole lot like that other American songwriting icon, Bruce Springsteen.
This could be a Springsteen Alt-Country album full of melancholic songs about loss and death and delivered with real depth and clarity by Dylan the younger.
Without any 100% classics jumping out and grabbing you, Seeing Things still has enough quality with regards to song craftsmanship,sharp production and assured delivery to edge it into 4 star territory.
