Product Description

The Wallflowers ~ Breach

Amazon.com

The Wallflowers' third album isn't so much a breach birth as it is past due. But Jakob Dylan claimed he needed the four years off to come to terms with whether or not he could plumb his own life for material. It appears he can, because here the songwriter tears the veil off his complicated relationship with his famous father and uses it as a vehicle to express some of the same moments of self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy that we all experience, even if we aren't related to Bob Dylan. This newfound candor in the formerly abstruse singer makes for a much more authentic, emotionally affective record, whether he's wearing his neuroses on his sleeve or reinventing old slave spirituals in "Mourning Train." And even if you don't believe that the Dylan paterfamilias ever castigated his son like "Hand Me Down," infers ("Now look at you / With your worn out shoes / Living proof evolution is through"), it makes for compelling listening, made even more persuasive by the Wallflowers' sparse, muscular playing, which evokes the specter of those titans of classic rock: Jackson Browne, the Eagles, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars We've been delivered October 13, 2000
By Warris
Format:Audio CD
Well after four years of waiting the day arrived. I can't say I was disappointed at all. Although the lyrics lack the complexity of the earlier albums - they certainly are more honest. Jakob also sounds different too. But, in this case different is good. I think any band needs an evolution of sorts, while not being the one I would have predicted - it's probably better than the one which everyone expected. They're more Tom Petty than Hootie or the Counting Crows. Sleepwalker is a great track as is Up from Under (beautiful). One thing I have noticed, no pianos...why?? Not complaining, just wondering. The UK version of this CD has a Sleepwalker demo track and the hidden track Babybird - also fantastic. I would say out of 12 of the tracks, 9 are outstanding. The track Murder 101 featuring Elvis Costello is The Wallflowers at their best. Don't compare it to previous albums, rate it on it's own merits - there are many to choose from.

5.0 out of 5 stars When The Blues Meet Pop November 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
In a soulful and tragic sound, The Wallflowers release an album that is a triumph of introspective and self-aware understanding. The melody of this album matches up perfectly with the lyrics to express a truly personal event that we are all invited to come and take an active part in witnessing. To sum all of that up: Damn, Jakob Dylan can write a song.
Even though it was a four-year wait from their last work of excellence, the wait was worth it. This album is different, a little more in tune with inner feelings and expressing doubts and concerns, but still excellent. An excellent blend of up and down, fast and slow. It's an exceedingly extraordinary album that combines pop rock, folk rock, and the blues. I've already played it to death in the month that I've owned it. I think you will, too. Quality is worth returning to and repeating.
On one final note, this edition of The Wallflower's "(Breach)" comes with a special bonus CD, featuring a live recording of "Invisible City" and the first release from the new album, "Sleepwalker." You might as well go ahead and get this edition: similar price and a bonus CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third times a charm for the Wallflowers October 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was never a big Wallflowers fan...until now. I thought Bringing Down the Horse was ok but overrated. Since Breach came out, I have since revisited BDTH and have come to like it. That said, I believe that Breach is a better album. The first time I listened to Breach, I thought it was a decent collection but had no stand out tracks. Boy, did my opinion change after several listens. Dylan explores the difficulties of being a second generation star in Hand Me Down. I've Been Delivered and Witness are two of the best ballads I've heard in years. As for the rockers, Some Flowers Bloom Dead, Letters From the Wasteland, and Sleepwalker are outstanding. There really isn't a bad track on the album. On the last listed track, Birdcage, (there is a hidden one) Jakob Dylan's voice starts to sound a little like another famous Dylan. I guess in some ways it will always be like father like son. Now when can we see a double billing of the Wallflowers and Bob Dylan? That's a show I would like to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mature Masterpiece March 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Most bands falter under the pressure of following up a huge album. And all too often a stylistic shift dooms good artists. Yet here the Wallflowers defeat both those challenges with an incredible, beautiful album. They move away from the rockin sound of their wildly successful Bringing Down the Horse and deliver a more stripped-down acoustic based, folk inspired album. This works perfectly, and the results are moving. The soulful "Mourning Train", visual "Some Flowers Bloom Dead", and "Up From Under" all carry Jakob Dylan's genius lyrics and wordplay along with some of his best vocals yet. "Letters From the Wasteland" and the single "Sleepwalker" turn up the volume a little but but lose nothing in the power department. Breach didn't sell nearly as well as BDTH or the next album Red Letter Days, which further proves the mainstream public doesn't know good music (although the Wallflowers are one modern rock band fighting all the crap). This is a ten-song masterpiece that you will not just hear but FEEL. Anyone with parents will understand the despair of "Hand Me Down" and that's just the beginning. Don't buy the "flop" argument around this album, it's just too good for most people. Don't be one of them!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your usual popular fluff November 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first four tunes are very catchy and immediately pulled me in, but I was surprised at how much more there was to explore. This CD is not just a collection of good rock songs that work well together. It has depth that comes from struggle, has a lot of contrasts, has a lot of variation in expression - sometimes using a bitter irony to express the pain of rejection. "Hand me Down" and "Murder 101" are obvious examples of that irony. It tends toward negativity, but it's not a world-weary or twisted kind of negativity; it's more about an awakening to disppointment and facing it. "Some Flowers Never Bloom" is a sad song about a broken relationship, but it has an upbeat kind of tempo and a catchy refrain.

The strongest song on the CD in my opinion is "I've been Delivered". The lyrics are about a struggle against conformity: "I would move swift when the sounds of a trumpet would blow/I've been the puppet/I've been the strings/I know the vacant face it brings". Another song about deliverance is the hidden track "Baby Bird".

This is a CD that wears well with many good songs tightly put together.
