    Wynn fires back with both barrels blazing....Wynn's nineteen-song cycle of

    The result is a freewheeling yet self-assured balance of Wynn's own voice
    and the influences long associated with him - the darkness of the Velvet

    The culmination of four decades of music making, "Miracles"is a grand,
    sumptuous statement, simultaneously forward looking and anchored by
    nostalgia. It is, quite simply, the best album of the year... a sprawling,
    career-defining, double-disc opus...

    'Miracles' is a nineteen-song bundle of what you've been missing: snarling
    prairie-wolf guitars circling Wynn's cutting yowl in the title bullet;
    roaming-dog blues like 'Sunset to the Sea' that sound like Townes Van Zandt
    hitchhiking with Crazy Horse.....If there is any justice left in rock,
    "Miracles"will be [Wynn's] big payback.

    Steve Wynn's latest work, a double disc that will be released soon, has a gorgeous hook-drenched and jangly psych pop tune, "Shades Of Blue." The rest of the 18 songs represent an upbeat and fresh evolution on Steve's Paisley Underground heritage. Few indie pop veterans are capable of this type of talent surge.

    1. Steve Wynn - Here Come The Miracles
    The former Dream Syndicate frontman fired on all cylinders with this one - Shake It Up's Album Of The Year. Here Come The Miracles was a bold and brazen rock and roll journey that covered more territory than Wynn ever has. Backed by an exceptional band, Wynn takes elements of early Tom Waits and Neil Young sounds and created something equally powerful and lasting on this sprawling 2-CD set.
