Here Come The Miracles

  • Independant Underground Sound

    "It's a mixture of the best of Americana and the best shag of your life. Yeah, that good, man"
  • London Times

    "Songwriterly maturity merges with psychedelic power surges. But be warned: buy this record and prepare for an expensive outlay on Wynn's back catalogue."
  • Time Out NY

    "...Wynn tears through the songs with great purpose and passion. He's always been a moody son-of-a-bitch but on this record he reaches moments of wisdom, introspection and spiritual enlightenment unexplored on his past albums. ...The songs are littered with grim scenes of self-destruction, booze, pills, fast cars, sad characters and other 'assorted miseries,' but the album concludes with a hopeful message on the glorious closing track, the spiritual 'There Will Come a Day.'"
  • San Francisco Bay Guardian

    "...'Here Come The Miracles,' the masterful new double album from ex-Dream yndicate leader Steve Wynn...gives us an L.A. soaked with grime, skank, and growl. Wynn's Los Angeles is a Byrds- and X-haunted mecca for squinting, imperfect souls who are buying time but, as Wynn sings on 'Death Valley Rain,' 'got no place to put it' and who have the 'Crawling Misanthropic Blues' because they want to be free but can't be."
  • Village Voice

    "Mr. Wynn, who's been bringing his brainy, pop-fueled songcraft to the minimasses since his days in the Paisley Underground with Dream Syndicate, has a groovy new album out, 'Here Come the Miracles.'"
  • Time Out London

    "A work of grit and grind and pith and pop, pretty jangle and beauty bomp, shifting structure and melodic suss. Great songs, gloriously delivered. This is likely Wynn's masterpiece.... just get this, get this, get this."
  • Q

    "...Wynn's sprawling, 2-disc 'Here Comes The Miracles' may well be his finest, most consistent and convincing work ever." - Iowa City Press Citizen "He's rarely sounded more driven... dusting off his best Lou Reed/Neil Young/Bob Mould moves, it's an airtight collection of jagged guitar manoeuvres..."
  • Chicago Sun-Time

    "...his strongest album in a decade..."
  • Chicago Tribune

    "Sounding alternately combative and remorseful, Wynn flavors his tales with organ-fueled garage rock, sweet Brill Building pop, slinky R&B grooves, Neil Young crunch, Lou Reed noise and Dylan-esque brooding. Whatever the style, though, Wynn approaches it with the energetic abandon of his first musical love."
  • Chicago Tribune

    "...an impressively consistent 2-CD set that ranks with his very best. Rather than forge new ground, Wynn casts a wide-angle spotlight on his considerable skills, from his tuneful, classically resonant songwriting to his thoughtful arranging to his multifaceted guitar playing. ...'Here Come the Miracles' proves that Wynn's a genuine rock renaissance man."
  • Billboard

    "...an ambitious new entry in his discography."
  • Boston Phoenix

    "It's his most assured work in years, a dazzling display of inspiration, intent, and execution that, from the opening garage-fuzz guitar notes of the title track, recalls the nocturnal grandeur of Dream Syndicate's 1982 landmark LP, 'The Days of Wine and Roses.'"
  • No Depression

    Wynn fires back with both barrels blazing....Wynn's nineteen-song cycle of a Southern California suspended between the millennium and the apocalypse infuses his literary aspirations with rock 'n' roll smarts, as if he's fronting Raymond Chandler's supercharged garage band.

    Reviewed: July 2001 Genre: Rock Label: BLUEROSE Release Date: 23-Feb-2001 Key Tracks: Good & Bad There Will Come A Day Smash Myself To Bits **** Nineteen tracks etched across two CDs and clocking in at over 80 minutes, Here Come The Miracles is clearly Steve Wynn pushing the boat out. More to the point, he's rarely sounded more driven, reeling off his bleakly ambiguous tales like a man with limited time on his hands and several points to prove. Amazingly, there's little filler here or any of the faux folksiness that has dogged much of his solo work. Instead, dusting off his best Lou Reed/Neil Young/Bob Mould moves, it's an airtight collection of jagged guitar manoeuvres with the 12-string crackle of Good & Bad a genuine star turn. Now, if only it really was 1982 all over again... Reviewed by Peter Kane

    ...a double-CD masterpiece.
  • Amplifier

    From the fuzz-drenched opening chords of the title track, it is apparent that Steve Wynn has come to this new album with a fully rocked arsenal. ?it may also stand as his most viscerally satisfying. ?a soundtrack that alternately blisters and smolders.

    The wide-ranging double CD... surges and sputters like a rattletrap speeding through the desert, praying for one more gas station past the last chance. ...it's an exhilarating ride. Just close your eyes, throw your head back and smell the dust as it whips through your hair.
  • Los Angeles Times

    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 Underground, the spaciousness of Neil Young and the oblique introspection of Bob Dylan.

  • Phoenix New Times

    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...
  • Rolling Stone

    '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.
  • Cleveland Free Times

    "The best record of his solo career."
  • NY Rock

    "The short space here can't really give it the credit it's due, but if you buy one CD this year, for God's sake, make it this one."
  • NY Press

    "Wynn has never abandoned the Neil Young influence, but this album easily smokes any Young offering since Freedom...this ambitious offering is 'atmospheric' enough to keep rebounding in my head all summer long."
  • NYRock.com

    "The maturity and complexity of the songwriting and the arrangements show Wynn as a rare performer who has aged like a fine wine. ...if you buy just one CD this year, for God's sake, make it this one."
  • Sound & Vision

    "...this ambitious two-disc set -- with all the expected Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Neil Young influences intact -- is probably his most consistent effort, thanks to a sympathetic band and exceptionally sharp songwriting."

    "The wide-ranging double CD... surges and sputters like a rattletrap speeding through the desert, praying for one more gas station past the last chance. ...it's an exhilarating ride. Just close your eyes, throw your head back and smell the dust as it whips through your hair."
  • Pulse of the Twin Cities

    "Wynn's latest, the double CD 'Here Come the Miracles' (Down There Records), may be the finest of his reasonably prolific solo career. Shades of Dylan and Reed still haunt his voice, but his songwriting takes an outright catchy, hook-filled edge."
  • Cincinnati CityBeat

    "...perhaps the greatest neo-psychedelic record in eons, 'Here Come the Miracles' [is] a work of fuzzed-out beauty..." - Minneapolis City Pages "...'Miracles' is a sprawling, squalling AltRock epic, at once a validation of everything Wynn has attempted in his solo career, as well as an expansion upo

    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."

    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.

    STEVE WYNN--HERE COME THE MIRACLES Recorded in the blistering Tucson heat, Wynn's two-fisted, Hemingway-esque short stories of New York City pain and California alienation are sloshed with enough epic guitar distortion and pounding, fecund drum work to fill an Arizona box canyon. When the flash flood of scotch and gasoline finally subsides, a career-defining double album blossoms like a century plant in the desert sand.

    Steve Wynn Är en musiker vars försÄljningssiffror blygsamt överstiger antalet utgivna titlar. Nu kommer han med dubbla cd-n Here comes the miracles. Även om den inte Är mirakulös, Är den vÄrd att lyssna till. Mot mullrande gitarrbakgrunder avtecknas Wynns röst: ofta nerbÄddad, ibland förvrÄngd. Men melodierna Är starka, de balanserar mullret. Och Wynn Är en fin sånglyriker, med pregnanta betraktelser om ett liv som ofta Är på vÄg åt ett annat håll.
