But now with the release of his first solo album it’s likely that Dylan will be facing critical comparison to dear old dad. The two are polar opposites vocally; Bob is nasally and often fails to enunciate while Jakob’s voice rings clear as a bell on every note.
But Seeing Things is an album of rootsy acoustic material that uses sparse instrumentation and often just guitar, so in that respect, there’s a comparison to his father’s early work. Jakob’s music, though, is not oblique or cryptic; nothing here requires any heavy thinking.
Seeing Things is currently available.
