4.0 out of 5 stars WE'LL MAKE UP OUR OWN MINDS Oct. 2 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Critics be damned; they never know what they're talking about anyway. Many of them have written about this record in a tone that presumes we all agree it's at or near the nadir of Dylan's output. But I don't agree, and neither do many of my fellow listeners. This is a soulful album, from the opening bass slide of "You Wanna Ramble" to the trailing chorus at the conclusion of "Under Your Spell." The songs (and the odd but intriguing cover as well) conjure desert landscapes and long, wearying journeys of the body and mind. The resolutions of the stories within are usually ambiguous, open-ended or simply unattainable. With much of Dylan's work, it's the spaces between people that help define how they communicate, because they must do so in relation to where they stand; point-of-view is paramount. This record is a good example of how Dylan's best stories feature players who must struggle across barren landscapes to understand themselves and each other. Bob might have changed some of the lyrics to the opening song, I don't know, but I find it interesting that the track includes the line, "What happens tomorrow/ Is on your head, not mine," a bit of foreshadowing since the line is spoken by Burl Ives in the 1960 Western 'The Big Country,' starring Gregory Peck. The band really kicks on this one, and the sound is very similar to what Bob and his band have been achieving on stage in recent years. "They Killed Him" was written by Kris Kristofferson, and I think it's a good song. People object to the use of a children's choir on this track, but it sounds right to me. The way it comes off it sort of reminds me of Tom T. Hall's "100 Children." The message of both songs is simple and direct; and who's going to argue with the sentiments expressed? Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated July 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album seems to have a very bad reputation among Dylan fans. It is far, far from being his best album, but it does have several notable songs (and one great one), and is actually quite underrated. It obviously wasn't intended to be a cohesive or even a "real" album: it plays like a scattershot, featuring songs from various different recording sessions spread out over a number of years, as well as more than a handful of covers and songs co-written with other people (there are only two songs credited to "Bob Dylan.") The sessions for this album were originally intended to have Dylan recording a set of cover songs. Whatever the original intent, though, Dylan - with this mish-mash setlist and scattershot tracking, not to mention its short running time - clearly just wanted, for whatever reason, to release an album at this time. (Dylan's lack of interest in the project is evident from a story regarding the cover: it's actually the movie poster for some cheap foreign film; some insignificant character - a session player's girlfriend, or the like - just happened to bring it into the studio one day. Dylan, liking it, opted to use it for the cover of the album. When asked about securing the rights for its use, he replied, "Just let 'em sue us.") Such lack of effort in compiling the album may have led to its bad reputation - not to mention its handful of less-than-stellar tracks. One often reads in reviews that this album is Brownsville Girl and 7 tracks of banality. In actual fact, the only track you should skip is the absolutely unstandable They Killed Him. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars I got knocked out Feb. 2 2003
By Matej
Format:Audio CD
So what if nobody ever heard Precious Memories done as reggae? Bob did it and it's refreshing to hear a different version. Everybody did that song the same - Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Golden Gate Quartet and ZING! there comes Bob Dylan and does it different and cowrites some songs and doesn't put out another "Desire" because he's a bit tired of not being appreciated the other way - well, critics my foot!! Come all ye prophets who can't stand Dylan, eat your hearts out. He outdid you again, 'cos he's not only a great songwriter, he's a MUSICIAN and an ENTERTAINER. Well, the ones who can't stand it, better git. The others - go out and get this and don't be prejudiced by anything. It's a masterpiece.
