    He's beautifully world-weary in songs such as 'Valley of the Low Sun' and 'Will it Grow.' [Sep 2008, p.102]
  2. Jakob Dylan's debut effort, Seeing Things, is a bare bones acoustic record showcasing the talent of the son of Bob.
  3. Lyrically, this is clearly Jakob’s strongest material to date.
  4. 80
    Treading his father’s path, he’s never sounded so comfortably himself.
  5. With material this naked, a stumble or two is expected, but Seeing Things possesses enough newfound emotion to make even Bob Dylan proud.
  6. Though the younger Dylan hasn't the gravitas of those old masters, his best songs such as 'Will It Grow,' have an easy downbeat charm. [Aug 2008, p.135]
  7. While his lyrics are as enigmatic as his father's (eg "I was born in the summer of Sam"), it's hard to care about what he's on about.
