Love the CD. Great acoustic quality. He was just in San Francisco last week at the Regency Ballroom and I went to see him. What a disaster. The sound system was so loud and distorted we had to plug our ears. But his CD is a nice listen, thoughtful lyrics and nice acoustic guitar playing.

Seeing Things is not a look into the past

"Seeing Things does NOT hearken back to the days of Bob, but instead clearly plays out poetic visions of today and tomorrow. Jakob & Bob may be similar in style and attitude, but listen, pay attention, hear Jakob's sentiment, and you'll see very clearly that he draws strength from an emotive engine very much his own.

Bob Dylan and Jakob Dylan are two phenomenal singer/songwriters, each standing firmly on his own ground, each deserving of our full attention. I'm an avid listener of both Bob and Jakob's music and simply do not understand why reviewers are reluctant to grand Jakob his own platform.

Don't listen to this album with 3-minute hyper-pop expectations.
Listen to this album with time and quiet to hear the whole thing through.
The listener will glean as much depth and sentiment as he/she brings to the table. Pay attention and you will not be disappointed.

Seeing Things is a mellow masterpiece in a gallery of neon noise.

Please rate this review "helpful" if you're tired of reading through the "He's not as good as Daddy" comments... >_> I'm absolutely certain that those reviewers are either not listening or... something worse."
Hearing things--good things!

"I like the Wallflowers and I like Jakob by himself. This CD is sparsely orchestrated and acoustic with Jakob's voice as the highlight. The CD is very listenable, but watch out--the lyrics will sneak up on you. There's a lot of strong sentiment in these mostly quiet songs.

"Evil is Alive and Well", the opener, is definitely a strong start. It's sparse and almost gothic sounding. The first listen made my hair stand up on end.

"Valley of the Low Sun", sounds like a ready-made traditional with very strong contemporary lyrics 'with snow covered beaches and bombers named after girls...' Either his Dad or Richard Thompson could have written this one.

"War is Kind" is one of the softest spoken protest songs you will ever hear. Jakob gets his message across in a quiet and ironic manner.

You hear a lot of influences in this collection: Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Richard Thompson, and yes, I think Jakob hears his own drummer as well. At 10 songs and a little over 37 minutes, "Seeing Things" keeps me hearing things a little less time than I would like, but the CD is still a winner and I am predicting it will be one of the best CDs of the year.
