Default Jakob Dylan

I think when someone is the child of a popular musician I immediately write them off. Jakob Dylan obviously being a major grab for any lazy ass recruiter scares me. I loved the Wallflowers output but his solo stuff...too close to Dad for me.

But thanks to the Innovation of Spotify, I managed to trip over some of this work, and what I'm hearing, in my opinion, is really good. Feel free to tell us what you think of him in general.

By the way, i ****ing hated "nothing but the whole wide world".

Favorites so far: Will it Grow, Everybody's Hurtin.

He's got a better voice than his dad, that's for sure!

It's nice. Not particularly innovative, not particularly new or fresh, but not all music needs to be new, especially that style of semi-country that is so much about roots, home, and familiarity. I like the warmth of what I've listened to, and it's good mellow music for lazy days and car journeys.

EDIT: he sounds like a whiny dick in spanish. He should stick to English :P

Pretty much this, I'd put Jeff Buckley in before him, but assuming we're talking people currently making music-Sean's the best out there.

Jeff tries too hard to be his father, but he can't quite do the same vocal gymnastics

at least Sean is doing something different than his father's

This thread is now about pancakes. Does boysenberry sound too close to Poisonberry for comfort? Discuss.

Sorry, one more post as I don`t know much about Jakob D.
I share the same intitial distrust of famous offspring, though I am half won over by Rufus Wainwright. OK, he can sound a bit slow and whiney, and he
can choose some strange songs to cover, but he has established a
musical identity quite apart from his mom and dad and sometimes gets it right, e.g. Going To A Town.

No way. His dad is by far the better vocalists.

I really like the Wallflower song "Josephine". And "Three Marlenas".

But he's still far off from being as good as his dad, but it's a big order to fill.
