Glad All Over

Current Status:
In Season

We gave it a B

Jakob Dylan’s band make an often-spirited but uneven return from a long hiatus, injecting their standard-issue roots-rock formula with a spiky and gratifyingly lively energy. (Perhaps Clash guitarist Mick Jones, who appears on the aptly titled single ”Reboot the Mission,” is their new power animal?) But whereas Jakob’s iconic pops, Bob, continues to surprise, as on his recent, stormy Tempest, the younger Dylan spends too much time on Glad All Over treading safe waters. B
