5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sarah Carpenter on July 10 2005
Format: Audio CD
Five stars for a Dylan masterpeice. Generally consented to be one of the best albums released by Bob and his last truly great one. I don't agree that Bob hasn't done anything spectacular since this release, but it is my personal favourite.
Hurricane finds him back in a "The Times They Are A'Changin" mood, singing a high energy protest song that just rocks along for more than eight minutes.
Isis is one of his greatest story songs, one of the few that I can think of that actually have a distinct plot. Most of his other longer songs are more rambling, like Idiot Wind or Like A Rolling Stone (though there's nothing wrong with that.)
Mozambique is an anamoly in all of rock music. A song about the pleasures of vacationing in a country that very soon after this release (if not before) was a war torn hellish place. Very up beat and lively, a great song.
One More Cup Of Coffee is quite possibly my favourite song by Dylan, it speaks to me though I don't know why. From the soft, dark acostic opening, then the thud of the bass and when Scarlet Rivera's violin finally enters the mix, I'm in heaven. Dylan's singing on this track is spectacular. His voice is high and his phrasing sounds almost Indian, or Middle Eastern and the songs lyrics further that feeling.
Oh Sister is another stand out track that I find extraordinarily gripping. There is a sublime beauty to it. From the opening strains of the violin, to the duet with EmmyLou Harris (though she sings on a lot of the tracks, it's particularily effective on this one.) I find the harmony and interplay between the harmonica and violin to be amazing. This isn't a song. It's more like a hymn. Even the lyrics could lend themselves to a Christian theme, if you beleive that we are all brothers and sisters and God is our father.

Mostly known for the track "Hurricane," this album, coming from the same man who had such an intense emotional outpouring on his last LP BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, this release sounds rather strange. Of all Dylan's albums, this easily ranks as his strangest and most musically versatile (in a good sense, anyway). Musically, it's all over the map, and literally, the songs' locales are all over the map. The songs, both in subject matter and actual music, feature a broad spectrum of art with a very global, traveling feel, and for this is unique to the Dylan canon.

Two of Dylan's best tracks can be found here: "Isis," which Dylan says in the live version on BIOGRAPH is a song about marriage, is a rambling piece that takes you through the tombs of the great Pharaohs and then back into a relationship with seemingly little connection. "Black Diamond Bay," is an account of an adventure gone terribly wrong as an Island sinks and recounts what is happening to various characters. Of all Dylan's story songs, these two rank high indeed in both enjoyment and artistic quality.

Elsewhere we have the two songs of heroes gone wrong. The first song, "Joey", the longest song on DESIRE, has been quite controversial. It is the retelling of the life of Joey Gallo, a famous gangster gunned down in a New York café. Many have used this song as evidence against Dylan for being hypocritical, extolling gangsters and organized crime in one song and then on "Hurricane" (to stay focused on Desire, but also much of his protest music as well) takes such a firm stand against injustice and civil evil. There are some problems with this argument. Dylan's musical background has all sorts of stories portraying criminals as heroes, such as Jesse James and Billy the Kid.

Another satisfied customer and an avid fan. Bob Dylan is timeless and a superior poet and his lyrics are mind spelling and never get tiresome. Thoroughly enjoy this music and will continue to do so many years. There's nobody that compares other than Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson....all the greats of my time. Bob Dylan has my vote...absolutely as an all time best in the music field. Milly
