Customer Reviews

The latest not the greatest

Rebel, Sweetheart isn’t the greatest wallflowers album ever. I wouldn’t say it moves forward from “Red Letter Days” which really impressed me when it came out due to its fantastic sound & really simple catchy tunes. I don’t want to slate it completely, but it sounds quite generic in places and Brendan O’ Brien’s production reminds me of the latest Train album, which was overall a complete disaster. Whereas RLD was seen as a move towards a mainstream sound, this is a move towards an overly polished slightly bland sound . There is none of the slight country, rootsy twang which worked so well before. The worst song on RS for me is “God Says Nothing Back” which is overproduced and lacking in any edge or substance. The best song on the album is “Back To California” which is punchy and focused and shows that The Wallflowers know how to rock. “The Beautiful side of somewhere” is a catchy enough radio friendly pop rock song, which sounds really good, but isn’t breaking any new ground. I’d recommend you buy “Breach” instead of this- it does everything this album does, but much better. Having said that, this isn’t a bad album and if you have all of the other albums, you could do a lot worse than to buy this album, after all The Wallflowers are a great band.

Different but excellent

These songs are still The Wallflowers but at the same time express a new direction. The lyrics are still the right mix of catchy and cryptic, there is a good balance between crunching lead guitar hooks and spare acoustic fingerpicking and the overall feel of the album is genuinely great. These words can't do it justice. Listen for yourself - I wholeheartedly reccomend "Rebel, Sweetheart".

More varied and wonderful

I have been a Wallflowers fan since Bringing Down the Horse and I just love them. Dylan writes lyrics that hit me so perfectly. Rebel Sweetheart has a richer and more varied sound, whilst still holding on to the essence of the band. Dylans lyrics are still fantastic and the band has definately managed to create a bit more subtance for themselves. My favourite album for a long time.


Formed: 1990

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
