Editorial Reviews

'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. This Dual Disc features music on one side and DVD on the other side. Interscope. 2005.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars They've Done It Again May 31, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Take human evolution and scale it down to a thirteen year span...this is a model that mirrors the Wallflowers' maturity over the last baker's dozen years. That's not to say Jakob Dylan and Company started out making Neanderthal music -- listen to the self-titled debut album from 1992 and you'll find nothing but raw talent. On "Rebel, Sweetheart," the band's fifth studio effort, The Wallflowers find themselves building off of their previous records but certainly not ignoring where they started. Before giving this CD a listen, look at the cover art and bear in mind that a picture is worth a thousand words. A taste of each album can be found in every "Rebel" track. It's like ordering a pizza with all the toppings. Producer Brendan O'Brien adds some dipping sauce, along with some great guitar work and backing vocals. His musicianship is especially apparant on the lead single, "The Beautiful Side of Somewhere", which oh-by-the-way is slithering up a couple of charts. The album's opener, Days of Wonder, mockingly celebrates the anniversary of the Iraq conflict...Rami Jaffe's keyboards will take you on a psychodelic journey back to the anti-war protests of the 60's and 70's. Newcomer Fred Eltringham shows no mercy when beating the drums, as apparent on "We're Already There." Veteran bassist Greg Richling rocks throughout the album as well and even lends some background vocals to the record. Jakob Dylan's signature voice is haunting on tracks like "God Says Nothing Back," seems almost playful on "The Passenger," and simply rocks out on "Back To California." Much like with the "Breach" album, you must hear the entire record from beginning to finish in order to capture the moods that each song evokes within the context of the album. Otherwise, you will not get the whole picture.

Sure, these are the guys who did "One Headlight." But if that's the only Wallflowers song you know, then YOU DON'T KNOW JAKE.

5.0 out of 5 stars More mellow May 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This long-awaited release is not what one would expect. Then that is the beauty of The Wallflowers, they are always bringing us something new.

Some of the songs on this release can be clearly classified as alt. country. Others have a very folksy feel. There are new rhythms (no raga--see video) evident most clearly in "God Says Nothing Back", creative lyrics ("From the Bottom of My Heart), and a spirtual feel to these songs (G-d makes an "appearance" in several). The significance of Rami's mastery of the keyboards is quite evident. The writing relies on his skills.

Wallflowers fans may be surprised, but not disappointed. Others who were not Wallflowers fans may want to give this CD a serious listen--you may discover something new.

The video portion of the dual disc is quite funny. This band is quirky (to say the least) and it is fun to see the lighter side of the "Boys." The video also includes new mixes of some songs, and "Halo" a song I had previously only as a bootleg. (Ooops did I just write that?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably The Wallflowers' Best Album Yet May 28, 2005
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.
