Glad All Over will stop you dead in your tracks, so don’t go thinking you’re gonna hear more of the memories that reside on the jukebox as a whispering of what you’re about to discover here. Glad All Over, the first release from the band in seven years, following the two solo albums by Jacob Dylan that sailed quietly under the radar, presents The Wallflowers rebooted, kicked into high gear, full of colourful imagery, and strung out on verbal and guitar hooks that splash across the screen with the raw urgency of “Rock The Casaba,” and features Mick Jones on two tracks.

Glad All Over hits like this is the very first time you’re hearing the band, coming at you with a power that nearly erases their past low keyed outings as little more than Blonde On Blonde meandering nods ... finally coming to grips with their own talent, one that’s filled with a huge sharp engulfing sound more suitable for the big stage, and not the small clubs. Now ... there are going to be many who don’t understand why a band some twenty years into their career would adopt a neo-punk attitude, and craft songs that stand in complete juxtaposition to the etherial atmospheric visions that both defined and graced their first releases. Considering those aspects, this is not a comfortable album, but one that certainly reflects the times and world situation, and it’s all by choice and design, making this just one more pocket for the boys to draw from, even if it is a bit out of their and our comfort zone.

*** The Fun Facts: Originally known as the Apples (a nod to The Beatles), the Wallflowers took their name from a line in the Bob Dylan song "Visions of Johanna".
