iTunes Review

Jakob Dylan established himself as a legitimate singer, songwriter, and performer with his group the Wallflowers. But as early as his first LP with the touching acoustic “Asleep at the Wheel,” Dylan showed signs of being at his absolute best at his least encumbered. So, for his first solo album, 2008’s Seeing Things, he hired Rick Rubin to produce and strip it all down, keeping Dylan’s voice front and center and letting the songs spill out at their own pace. Without an extra flourish or note, Dylan goes to work, coming up with an entire album of extremely strong material. “Evil is Alive and Well” takes the temperature of modern times, while “Valley of the Low Sun,” “Everybody Pays As They Go,” “Something Good This Way Comes,” and “The End of the Telescope” specialize in a timeless folk tradition where new melodies carry a ring of the familiar, as if they’d been there all along. This unforced ease begs Dylan to continue in this vein. The kid’s a natural, following in the family tradition, adhering to standards that must seem at least a little daunting at times. Here, you’d never know it.

Customer Reviews


I love The Walflowers and I love Jakob's voice. He's a great songwriter and has just enough of his dad to be great while still being mostly just Jakob. His lyrics are incredible and his voice is soothing. As for this record: it's probably his best vocal performance to date and it really sounds like he made the record he wanted. It's great if you're a Walflowers fan but even if you aren't I'm sure you can find something to love on it.

Dylan Delivers...Jakob that is.

Stark...dark...simple...Dylan delivers a beautiful solo album the likes of Springsteen's "Nebraska" or Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A Changin." Jakob builds his own Dylan legacy on his terms.

All around Great Album

The song on this album are nothing like those on the Wallflowers albums. They are mainly acoustic and are really well written. These songs have a very timeless feeling. The highlights are All Day and All Night, Will it Grow, and This End of the Telescope. I also enjoy the darkness of Evil is Alive and Well. It's a true gem and you won't regret making this purchase.

Being the son of one of the most influential, innovative, eccentric, and unique songwriters in the history of Western pop music probably opened some doors for Jakob Dylan, but being Bob Dylan's son was just as likely a heavy load to carry as well, and the younger Dylan handled the pressure with relative élan. Born in 1969, Jakob Dylan was raised in Los Angeles by his mother, Sara Lowndes, after his parents' divorce in 1977. He studied at private schools in L.A. and New York, and eased into the...
