Product Description


When we last left the ever-confounding saga that is Bob Dylan's now-superhuman recording career, he'd reunited with producer Daniel Lanois, with whom he cut 1997's Time Out of Mind, his most coherent and appealing collection in nearly a decade. Now the still-reigning prince of musical contrariety and potent wordplay is back with his most focused, well-played collection since 1989's Oh Mercy, another Lanois production. One listen to the fade-in of the opener "Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum" and it's clear that all Dylan's roadwork has shaped him and his band (including guitarist Charlie Sexton) into a mighty musical weapon. And while his craggy howl continues to resonate, it's the songs here that astonish. A sturdy midtempo melody makes "Mississippi" the equal of the best numbers on Time, which it was actually written for. He convincingly puts over the R&B swing (yes, swing) number "Summer Days." "Honest with Me" ("I'm not sorry for nuthin' I've done / I'm glad I fight, I only wished we'd won") is a driving rocker that packs a genuine punch. And the light, lounge-like "Bye and Bye" and the southland ramble "Floater (Too Much to Ask)" show extraordinary confidence. He's labeled these songs "blues-based," but in typical Dylan fashion what would promise to be the most overtly blues number here--"High Water (for Charlie Patton)"--sounds like a banjo-based gunfighter ballad. But then that's this artist's gift: confounding expectations. --Robert Baird

4.0 out of 5 stars This isn't Celine Dion May 23 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Released September 11, 2001, "Love And Theft" snuck in under the radar like the Al-kaeda terrorists' airliners. A new Bob Dylan release was not exactly the top news story that day. After years of somewhat disappointing recordings, Dylan had made a major artistic comeback in 1997 with the release of "Time Out Of Mind". While this CD doesn't quite live up to that, it's still a fine piece of work. Dylan's voice was never gangbusters but now in the 21st Century he doesn't really sing so much as croak, like Moms Mabley on a bad day. If great singing and over production is your thing then this CD is not for you. This isn't Celine Dion. So if you have no interest in singers who can't sing, you might as well leave now. It will just be a waste of your time.
The darkness and desolation of the previous mentioned CD is mostly gone and despite the scowls on the cover photo, he actually sounds cautiously playful on this recording. That's highly unusual to anyone familiar his work. "Love And Theft" covers the gamut of American roots music including folk, country, blues and rock. There are few pretensions here. Most of the arrangements are stripped bare, the way I'm sure he wanted it. It is produced by someone named Jack Straw who I suspect might be Dylan himself. As with any Dylan album, there are flaws you have to ignore. A perfectionist he isn't. He's 60 years old and he sounds world weary and a little tired but he still has the energy for some subtle humor. In a nutshell, if you like Bob Dylan this CD would be hard to dislike.

[My original review of LOVE AND THEFT had some significant cuts because of length. I did not get to cover all that I wanted, so this review reincorporates the cuts with new text. This should be read in conjunction with my review of the regular edition.]
Many are curious about Dylan's newest album, LOVE AND THEFT. Its qualities are myriad and must be experienced firsthand. This review deals specifically with the limited edition and what the two bonus tracks bring to this release. For those who have the opportunity, pick up the limited edition as it helps you better understand LOVE AND THEFT.

The central thesis artistically of LOVE AND THEFT is this:

"Remember the past while progressing toward the future."

Dylan said in an interview recently that the music of today is hideous. Dylan once again becomes the voice of a generation, pointing us in the direction our art should be going but is not. Most of the new bands no longer pay attention to tradition. Dylan shows us on this album how rich music can be if we acknowledge what has gone on before yet still maintaining a creative and fresh approach to art, which he does here.

Dylan has always maintained a fresh attitude toward tradition while striving for his own music. He's constantly changing his sound but all his albums have a respect for what has gone on before. Identity is a major issue to him (as SELF-PORTRAIT proved), and he always wants to evolve, so when listening to Dylan the journey becomes really part of the pleasure of listening to him. He proves once again his incredible skills of diversifying and shaking things up. Nothing is a clone in the Dylan catalogue, which is amazing considering his forty year career as a recording artist, and this proves no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real Bob Dylan at his best March 1 2003
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Love and Theft is easily Bob Dylan's best CD in a long time. I think a line from the song Mississippi sums this album up fairly well: "Things are starting to get interesting right about now." After almost forty years in the business, Dylan is still putting out some of the best music he has ever written and recorded. It lacks the passion and underlying spirit of rebellion found in his early releases, but Love and Theft stands well above the vast majority of music being recorded these days. In Summer Days, Dylan says that you can repeat the past, and in a way, that is what he has done here. This Bob Dylan is a conglomeration of all the Bob Dylans that have come and gone for; drawing on varied aspects of his musical legacy, he manages to return to the basics while at the same time offering a fresh variety of sounds and musical approaches on these twelve tracks.
Mississippi would be my favorite song here; the manner of Dylan's extended delivery of incredible lyrics brings to mind classic songs such as Tangled Up in Blue. If you like energetic, toe-tapping rockers, Dylan proves he won't be performing sitting down for many a year with Lonesome Day Blues and Cry a While, two songs also heavily tinged with the blues, as well as Honest With Me. Summer Days is quite unusual, combining verifiable swing music with a strong pinch of rockabilly. On High Water (for Charlie Patton), Dylan incorporates the banjo and also possibly the mandolin, while Floater (Too Much to Ask) seems to feature violin music that works especially well in the transitions. I normally would not think of violins and Bob Dylan together, but the combination works fabulously. Floater is also notable for its plucky rhythm and subtly humorous lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take your time with this one
I got this album around the time it came out. I'm a fan of Bob Dylan, but I didn't really connect with this album at first. Jump about 10 years later, and I really like it now. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Not like those other 5 star albums
My favourite album by my favourite artist. Ranks slightly ahead of 1997's Time Out Of Mind. A true document in American music history.

Just bought this album. Not in a rush to check out present day Dylan, but I was buying a few of his SACD re-masters and this was with them so I thought I'd give it a go. Read more
