Album Review

The Wallflowers never quite were a singles band — each of their albums had its own distinct flavor — yet they had a tendency to distill the essence of their records on a handful of highlights. Apart from their 1996 breakthrough, Bringing Down the Horse, none of these were major hits, but Bringing Down the Horse had four blockbusters — "6th Avenue Heartache," "One Headlight," "Three Marlenas," "The Difference" — that provide a foundation for the band's first retrospective, Collected: 1996-2005. As the subtitle suggests, this collection writes their gangly 1992 debut out of the record, concentrating on the time when the Wallflowers were just about the only rock & roll journeymen in America, cranking out sturdy singer/songwriter-driven classic rock. Collected has all their charting singles save their cover of David Bowie's "Heroes," originally released on the soundtrack to 1998's Godzilla, and wisely cherrypicks from their other three albums, offering a good overview of the band's appealing, dependable rock & roll — an overview that acts as a good introduction but will also satisfy the needs of most casual followers.

The Wallflowers were even better than this

This is a very good compilation of original Wallflowers songs, but it's difficult to understand why the three great covers they did were not included. Imagine covering The Beatles, Van Morrison and David Bowie, and in each case, crushing the original tune. Yet that's exactly what they did with I'm Looking Through You, Into The Mystic and Heroes. I would also like to have seen a couple more songs from the great and under-rated album Rebel, Sweetheart, like Back To California and From The Bottom Of My Heart. That would have shown more of the breadth of this great band.

As part of the mid-'90s revival of roots-rock, the Wallflowers held a special connection to one of the original inspirations: vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Jakob Dylan. Though he is the son of a legend, Jakob's similarities to his father are occasional -- in fact, the Wallflowers are more influenced by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers than original '60s folk-rock, though lyrically, Jakob remains a close companion to the original Dylan. Born in 1970, Jakob Dylan was raised in Los Angeles by his mother,...
