4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 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.

By Mark Anderson TOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 14 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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?

By Israel Beat on Sept. 9 2003
Format: Audio CD
The word Israel isn't spoken or written anywhere on this recording. But Israel takes center stage for a couple tracks on Infidels. There's a photo of Bob on the inside sleeve with Jerusalem in the background. The title of the album is a little suspicious as well.
Infidels has a bluesy/country feel to it. Bob Dylan's raspy and flat vocals have a lot of heart and proves that a musician can be effective without having a great singing voice. The lyrics are thought-provoking, sarcastic and sometimes indecipherable.
On the fast, country tinged Union Sundown, Dylan talks about the clothes he wears, none of which have been made in America. I am I and Don't Fall Apart on Me Tonight are mellow and sound similar to his previous Just Like a Woman. Many songs featured harmonicas and slide guitars and are structured like blues songs as opposed to sing-along ballads.
Man of Peace reminds one of leaders like Yassir Arafat, with its refrain of "sometimes even Satan comes as a man of Peace." Lyrics of shaking hands and good intentions gone bad could be about the Camp David accords of today if they weren't written during the Camp David Accords of 1983. Wasn't it Bob Dylan that also sang "where have all the flowers gone/when will they ever learn?" But the listener is apparently left to make that judgement independently.
In terms of the Israel connection, Neighborhood Bully is a real standout. It isn't musically superior, but the lyrics hit hard. Menachem Begin, American foreign aide and Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor are all invoked without mentioning any of them by name.
