Since the spring of 2014, some of my friends and I have been sharing music to listen to while we work. Sometimes we review that music and share those reviews with one another.
The Wallflowers – Bringing Down the Horse (1996)
This week I’m continuing the trend of bands I’m surprised we haven’t done yet. I feel like The Wallflowers were a staple of the mid to late ’90s. This is their second album, and while I really like their fourth and fifth, I thought if we were going to share one, it should be their biggest.
How much do I really have to introduce this album? Any single you know from them is probably from this record. It’s Jakob Dylan updating his dad‘s style of folk rock (and singing better)(and not being so political). It’s just solid ’90s roots rock. If you can get any of the bonus tracks, I recommend looking those up, too. Their cover of David Bowie‘s Heroes is great.
If my friends tell me what they thought, I’ll post their reviews here. Please leave your own comments (or music suggestions) down below.
