I just have to put in a plug for the Wallflowers... if 'One Headlight' is all you know, then you're seriously missing out. (although it's a good f*cking song too)

They have put out four really strong records, especially Breach and Bringing Down the Horse. The songs are filled with fantastic melodies and some truly extraordinary lyrics, not too dissimilar to Springsteen in some respects.

It would be unfair to dismiss these guys as pop rock, there is really something special about their songs.

Love the Wallflowers. I had Bringind Down the Horse on tape when it first came out and listened to it so much I wore the thing out. I have Breach, also. Good stuff.



(And yes, those eyes LOL)

Yay Wallflowers!

Bringing Down the Horse was amazing. I never got around to picking up Breach, although I think ended up downloading a large part of the songs. "I've Been Delivered"

Does anyone have the latest: Red Letter Days?

And, for the record: Jakob Dylan

I picked up Red Letter Days when it came out, and was not dissapointed. Their sound has evolved and Jakob continues to astound. There's a couple real hard-rockers on there too... ("Everybody out of the Water" was a big surprise.)

I really like the wallflowers, and i'm looking to get an album after just having some various songs that i've liked on cd, like difference and when you're on top...i don't know which cd to get though. i'm thinking of getting red letter days because i tend to work backwards with all the bands i get into, from u2 to sister hazel...you know, get the newest album and then get all the other ones. I'm not sure though....

But jakob dylan certainly is easy on the eyes....

I traded in Bringing Down the Horse a few months ago just becauase I never listened to it anymore.

But I really liked "6th Avenue Heartache."

I haven't heard their latest but I love the first two. One Headlight has some excellent lyrics.

Do you like THE WALLFLOWERS?

The Wallflowers and U2 are my two fav bands (in no special order, I love both). That's the reason why they always "appear" at the end of my posts. There are 4 records:

~ The Wallflowers (1992)



~ Bringing Down The Horse (1996)



~ (Breach) - 2000



~ Red Letter Days (2002)



yeah, I 'borrowed' the cover pics from their site...hmm...I've seen the last pic somewhere... hehe

They are very talented and so awesome! I've been to a show and it was great, no words can describe how amazing their shows are.

btw, they are gonna be special guests of the Counting Crows during the next month in San Francisco and Los Angeles. More info in their official site:

http://www.wallflowers.com/index_main.html

I wish I could go...

You can also read the lyrics and articles, watch the videos, send a question to Jakob Dylan (the singer), and if you go to their message board, you'll be welcome , I live there too, hehe but I use another sn...

If you are interested in them, just tell me and I'll give you some interesting links.


I The Wallflowers!

I like what I've heard by them. They're definitely a good band.

Plus, it doesn't hurt that they like Tom Petty. .

I think they're pretty good Jakob's not bad to look at either

I heard their cover of Into The Mystic this weekend on the radio, and thought it was beautiful
