    The Wallflowers don't abandon their identity as rock & roll classicists, they just now feel the freedom to mess around, and they've come up with one of their loosest, liveliest records that not-so-coincidentally is one of their best.

    For the first time in their long career, the Wallflowers sound like a band that might actually be glad all over.

    Looser in feel and texture than their last couple of discs, with Dylan's husky vocals leading the way. [Dec 2012, p.78]

    It is probably Dylan's most distinctive statement. [Oct 2012, p.94]

    Jakob Dylan's group has picked up where it left off: with sharp roots-rock songs full of sturdy hooks, deadpan jokes and pathos that sneaks up on you.

    Dylan spends too much time on Glad All Over treading safe waters.
  7. 70
    Glad All Over largely succeeds because it never devolves into simply getting the old band back together.

    All told, Dylan and company don't leave you glad all over--but maybe half-way.
  9. 70
    Dylan's talent for matching, smart plentiful (arguably too much so) words to chiming melodies supported by a solid, unpretentious rock band and sung with conviction has returned.
  10. The Wallflowers have always been a band that excelled at bringing new life to things we'd heard before, and that remains true on Glad All Over.
