Editorial Reviews

Product Description

'Rebel,Sweetheart' is the welcome re-introduction to a grown up rock & roll band with a renewed sense of purpose. The Wallflowers have created an album that yearns for clarity while reflecting the world's complexity these are songs written by a man and performed by a band that's already lived a little. From the powerful expression of hope on the first single 'The Beautiful Side Of Somewhere' to the moodily stunning 'We're Already There', 'Rebel, Sweetheart' is poised to be the most focused and accomplished album of their career. Interscope. 2005.

As a testament to his own hard work ethic, Jacob Dylan has continued to record in spite of the lack of spotlight. With the release of his fifth disc, Rebel, Sweetheart, the singer/songwriter's dedication to the classic rock genre is again self-evident. Influences ranging from Springsteen's E Street Days ("God Says Nothing Back") to Tom Petty ("All Things New Again") ultimately reinforce Jacob's deep love of classic acoustic rock. The first single also happens to be one of Rebel, Sweetheart's strongest. "The Beautiful Side of Somewhere" is indicative of the younger Dylan's songwriting tendency to write with a darker pen; a tune begging the dark times to depart doesn't usually make for strong radio play, but the expansive musical swell at the track's end is one likely to bring new fans to the gates. The DualDisc version of the CD offers fans a 30 minute performance film, including reworked versions of "One Headlight" and "6th Avenue Heartbreak" as well as an amusing band interview with comedian Jon Lovitz. --Denise Sheppard

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wallfowers are Back with another Classic May 24, 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great showing July 9, 2005
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.

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. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent songs with standard Wallflowers sound May 29, 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growing, Growing, Not Gone! May 24, 2005
By T-Bone
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.

I have been a Wallflowers' fan since they broke into the mainstream circa 1996, and this new CD definitely does not disappoint. I'd read rave reviews of it in a few different magazines, but still wasn't prepared for it to be as great as it is. I just thought it was wonderful that they were releasing a new album, and that it would be at least pretty good. It's a lot more than "pretty good"! If you're a Wallflowers' fan, you will love this new CD, and if you aren't a fan you should get it anyway, because you will be a fan after you hear it. Either way, it's great music, period.

A lot of music being released these days is mind-numbing, inane and awful. This CD is full of songs that won't insult your intelligence. Thanks Jakob, et al, for not letting us down!! (All songs written by Jakob Dylan.) Can't wait for the next one, but in the meantime the new songs are substantial enough to last a while.
