By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on May 13 2007
Format: Audio CD
Infidels contains fast rockers, slow ballads and moving blues. This one is not as overtly spiritual as the preceding 3 albums, but there is still a devotional undertone throughout and potent religious imagery in some of the songs. Jokerman is one of those, a lengthy rumination with an appealing tune and gently lilting beat. Sweetheart is a slow conversational song reminiscent of some of his classic 1960s work.

A highlight of the album is the fast rocking tour de force titled Neighbourhood Bully, quite striking in its urgent uptempo beat and perceptive lyrics. This track about media bias against Israel definitely stands as one of Dylan's most powerful songs of all time. The next, License To Kill, is a slow mournful ballad with lovely harmonica that becomes more prominent towards the end, whilst Man Of Peace is a slab of potent mid-tempo rock that warns against deception and brainwashing.

The album impresses with its variety of styles, like the galloping rock of Union Sundown which is followed by the musically and lyrically intricate I And I, a tender blues number with stirring imagery. The album closes with the tuneful Don't Fall Apart On Me Tonight, a love song in a country-folk style, also with moody harmonica. Infidels is not on a par with masterpieces like Oh Mercy or Time Out Of Mind but still a strong album with more than enough classic tracks.

INFIDELS, Bob Dylan's 22nd studio album, was released in 1983 to largely enthusiastic reviews and critical response. The album was noted both for its strong, secular (!!) songwriting, and for its production which gave the songs a nice, clean sound. Mark Knopfler and Dylan gave INFIDELS a very tasteful, rather modern production, and sounds akin to Dire Straits' music, which isn't surprising. While not a phenomenal seller, INFIDELS did sell fairly well, however, and a lot of his fans were rather glad to see him backing away from the explicit Christianity he had been spouting for the last several years. While he never publicly renounced his Christian faith, it is true that, starting with Infidels, his song writing would never again be so open and so poignant about the Christian faith.

When he converted to Christianity in 1978, the public was both shocked and dismayed. Of all people, Dylan is now a professing Christian? Though much of the music in the early 1960s used the Bible as a reference point and moral compass, still his fan base was not receptive to him becoming a Christian. Then in the early 1980s, he only sang his Christian material and went on long tirades about his faith in concert. But this would only last for a few years. By 1983, Dylan was in was a strange place, both spiritually and professionally. He had just finished recording his Christian trilogy, where he was explicitly espousing the Christian doctrine (gotta serve somebody, after all). He took up with some Hassidic Jews, had his picture taken at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, and while not giving up his Christian faith, was still intent on keeping his Jewish roots alive.

This is one of Dylan's best. It's certainly the best of his 1980s albums. Anyone who is discovering, or re-discovering, Dylan's work should have this album.

Dylan is backed by some top flight musicians on this CD. Guitar work, for example, is divided between Mark Knopfler (formerly of Dire Straights) and Mick Taylor (formerly of the Rolling Stones). Knopfler's playing is instantly recognizable on tracks like Jokerman and Sweetheart Like You. Anyone familiar with Taylor's work with the Rolling Stones will recognize his tone and style on tracks like Neighborhood Bully and Don't Fall Apart On Me Tonight.

Dylan alsotackles some interesting topics on the CD. Union Sundown is about globalization and the loss of manufacturing jobs in the USA; Neighborhood Bully is, by far, the best pro-Israel song I've ever heard.

If your music collection only has room for a few Dylan albums, this CD should be one of them. It's an essential CD for any collection of Dylan's work.

One comment for the people who reissue these albums: there was a song called Blind Willie McTell recorded during the original sessions for Infidels. It was not included on the original album release despite Mark Knoppfler's heated arguments in favour of including it on the album. It's not included on this reissue either, although it was included on Dylan's Bootleg series. If you do another reissue of Infidels, put Blind Willie McTell on the album.

After reading some of the reviews, I understand this most people don't get the lyrics or the subetlies of Mark Knopfler playing which is usually in the back, beneath the overall sound with Mick Taylors guitar playing out in front. knopflers leads take quite a few listens to even hear. Lets get beyond that and get to the lyrics Jokerman is a masterpiece warning of the coming of the beast( a woman gave birth to a priest today dressed in scarlett)the only real question i have about the song is what is the Jokerman ? A country, mankind as a whole or the devil in disguise. Yes this album is full of biblical and social commentary. Neighborhood Bully is about a large portion of the worlds perception of Isarael, Man of Peace is about how the devil disguises himself, current president Bush, Arafat and host of others who seem to give goodwill in the their perception of peace. License to Kill is about man's obssesion to dominate through force and his clear abandonment of Gods laws. I and I is man inner struggle with the forces of good and evil. This Cd I have owned for over 20 years and his (Dylans) genius at wordcraft and music never fails to amaze me. For those who have'nt heard it buy it for those who have listen again and ask yourself what do you think he was refferring to when he sings the book of Leviticus and Deutoromy,the law of the jungle and the sea are your only keeper means?
