I loved this album. Downloaded it this morning and just finished listening to it. No, I don't think it is Love and Theft Part II. Love and Theft -- to my mind -- remains his best album in the last 20 years;it just blew me away. This one, Modern Times, has a lovely mature feel to it, unlike Love and Theft which I felt was breaking new ground musically. Modern Times tunes are both relaxed and raw and are 'somewhat' an extension of some material on Love and Theft - but only marginally. I think Dylan's vocals are getting even better as he ages - he's learning how to use his voice in interesting ways to deal with aging vocal chords, which render his tunes a bit raspy and give it that weathered sound; then again, with Dylan, tempo is everything. The band is tight and his use of space and his timing, is exquisite - that's really why I listen to him. The lyrics as always, are beautiful and mark him as a poet. This album is lovely -- especially 'Spirit on the Water' and 'Nettie Moore', but these things are so subjective. The videos are equally compelling although I'd already seen two of them. Either way, I'm so happy to have new Dylan material to listen to.

Bob Dylan for the last few years has been one of the most exiting artists rock has to offer. He has written a best selling book, toured extensively, and recorded two highly regarded albums, putting him in a late career renaissance

Starting with 2001's effort, LOVE AND THEFT, and now this album, MODERN TIMES, Bob Dylan has newly occupied musical territory. Dylan has broken new ground with both these releases. Nothing in post-millennium rock sounds anything like these two records, and for good reason. Bob Dylan has turned back the clock to pre-rock and roll, and recorded some of the most exiting music of his career, focusing solely on American traditional music.

Dylan came into critical acclaim with the 1997 album, TIME OUT OF MIND. His first album of original songs in seven years, TOOM won best album of the year at the Grammies, and the first of three critically acclaimed albums. MT has been marketed as the end of this "trilogy," but Dylan disagrees with that assessment. TOOM, great album that it is, sounds totally separate from L&T and MT and is an album unto itself, totally separate from the music found on the next two releases. Dylan said MT would be the second part of a trilogy, if there is going to be one, with L&T being the first part.

When LOVE AND THEFT was released, Dylan impressed the critics and the fans a second time in a row. L&T is a markedly different album than its predecessor, TIME OUT OF MIND, which is a much darker, aesthetically different album. MODERN TIMES is very much a companion album to L&T, and proves the methodology behind his 2001 effort was not a one off fluke. Dylan does a wide variety of traditional music on MT, from blues to ballads to crackerjack rock and roll to apocalyptic visions of oncoming doom.

Bob Dylan's ability to remain current after so many years and so much music is simply amazing.

I wasn't so sure about this album before listening to it. Reviewers had been comparing it to Time Out of Mind and Love & Theft. I do like Time Out of Mind despite it lacking the warmth found on the other album Dylan made with producer Daniel Lanois, Oh Mercy (which is among my favorite Dylan albums). Love & Theft was, however, an album that I really do not like. The songs on that album lack cohesion and the production is somewhat muddled.

Although Modern Times does not differ a great deal from Love & Theft, the difference lies first and foremost in the more direct melodies and a crystal clear but yet warm production. From my standpoint, it is as if Love & Theft were from the same recording sessions, simply the songs on it were B-sides with all the worthwhile material making it to Modern Times.

The highlight of this album is Workingman's Blues #2, with subtle passion and emotion throughout. Other highlights include Spirit on the Water, Beyond the Horizon and When the Deals Goes Down. The only track resembling being a filler is Someday Baby.

This album is in mine opinion close to being as good as Oh Mercy. The mystic sound that makes Oh Mercy so special (recorded in New Orleans) is, however, lacking. That layered sound is probably among Lanois major contribution but he is nowhere to be found on Modern Times. Despite the production being crystal clear, the music is so delicately played that it doesn't hinder the album from having a warm feeling. This is Dylan's best record since Oh Mercy and among his best in his career. At 65, he still has some magic left in him.
