Alternative PressAug 19, 2011The addition of electric instruments and Morello's nasal speak-singing do make Rebel Songs read a little like a radicalized Dylan. [Sep 2011, p.116]
Aug 30, 2011As a folksinger, he undeniably blows: There's simply nothing appealing or compelling about his forced, tuneless, featureless vocals, and without a strong frontman like Zack De La Rocha or Chris Cornell, flaccid attempts at rocking out like "It Begins Tonight" render Rebel Songs even weaker than if he'd stuck strictly to folk.

Morello 'folks' and 'rocks' his way through a myriad of anthems, sounding Dylanesque at times. Solid vocal and guitar as standard from Morello, great snare going on and some choral backing that makes this album so uplifting. Given that this **** album is more electric less acoustic is just what the doctor ordered.
A significant addition to any serious music collectors collection.
