Review | Monday 29 October 2012
This much-anticipated album sees Jakob Dylan and original and longtime band members return to what they do best.
More of a rediscovery of the sound that brought The Wallflowers fame and success, this new album also showcases subtle new influences that have made their way into the songs without diluting the formula. It has been seven years since their last release, and 16 years since Bringing Down the Horse served up great songs such as ‘One Headlight’ and ‘6th Avenue Heartache’.
The first single, ‘Reboot the Mission’ with Mick Jones from the The Clash, will see The Wallflowers back with a vengeance.
