    After the multi-platinum and Grammy-winning success of 1996's BRINGING DOWN THE HORSE, Jakob Dylan finally got out from under the heavy mantle of his famous father's legacy and started a legacy of his own. For his millennial follow-up, the younger Dylan continued down the path of rich lyricism and well-crafted pop songs with help from the production team of Andrew Slater (Fiona Apple/Macy Gray) and singer-songwriter Michael Penn.
    Despite all his success and acclaim, Dylan comes off as more the hard-edged realist than bright-eyed optimist. Song topics draw from the sour experiences of life and a quest for higher meaning, manifested in numbers like the enigmatic and weary seeker-of-truth ode "I've Been Delivered," and the message of regret that is "Some Flowers Bloom Dead." Famous friends also pop up along the way to lend a hand, among the most notable being Elvis Costello, who helps out on the rollicking break-up song "Murder 101" and Frank Black, whose harmonies help shape "Letters From the Wasteland," a moody, desolate song of abandonment. Adding a nice counter-balancing coda to the slight disillusionment coloring BREACH is "Babybird," a sweet-sounding hidden track that reverberates with a music-box melody throughout.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (10/26/00, p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Dylan has grown as a singer....The songs are incandescent enough to jump out at you on the radio, yet are steeped in a type of introspective inquiry that was once integral to rock & roll..."
    Q (11/00, p.119) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Generic, but very nicely done....its 10 songs possess the requisite authorative air and there are some good, strong, alt.country-type choruses too..."
    CMJ (1/08/01, p.46) - Included in CMJ's "Year's Best Triple A Albums" from 2000.
    CMJ (10/00, p.58) - "...A respectable follow-up to BRINGING DOWN THE HORSE....there are plenty of comfortably sung and strummed numbers that get the job done..."
