I came to Dylan late in life (after all the early stuff which is in my bones, like every other preboomer whether they know it or not) and I really freaked out on his last three or four albums, which are among his best. Since then I have been going to the back catalogue, which for me is 70's, 80's and 90's...lots to explore there!. In this treasure trove so far, my fave is Oh Mercy, produced by Daniel Lanois and released in 1989. On the strength of Amazon reviews, I bought Empire Burlesque. I have just listened to it. On first hearing, I must say I only share the general enthusiasm to a point. The first five songs (to my ears) sound like cheap electro-pop. Starting with track 6, however, the Dylan musical genius starts to shine brighter with every song, ending with a solo guitar and harmonica song (Dark Eyes) which comes as a sort of welcome anti-climax. I will be returning to these last 5 songs often, but I doubt I will listen very much again to the first five.

I rank this as Dylan's best 80's album because he actually
sounds like he's having FUN on such buyount rockers such as
"Tight Connection To my Heart" and the assuming uptempo blues of
"Clean Cut Kid".But it is in the dramatic "Emmotionaly Yours"
and the throwback coffehouse folk of "Dark Eyes" were this album
finds it's heart.Also a Madonna sound-alike dance tune called
"When the sky Comes Falling Down" brings a more modern aspect tp
Dylans work.Don't let a few narrow-minded singer/songwriter
cultists certify your opinion of this-listen in for yourself!

The first song "Tight Connection..." is worth the price. The song is actually quite logical. It's about BD's lack of satisfaction with Christianity .."I never did learn to drink that blood and to call it wine..I never did learn to hold your love, and to call it mine." Pretty logical to me. While the rest of the album is admittly not so great, this is one of my favorite Dylan songs.

A selection of traditional covers reflecting Dylan's unease with the
changing culture of the early '90's

The voice is purposely " ragged " to assist in creating a resigned
but begrudged acceptance of some of the " accepted change ".
