2.0 out of 5 stars What happened Bob? March 4 2012
Format:Audio CD
Arguably his worst record ever. Gave it two stars because Dylan is..well Dylan. Anyone else had done this and I would never have listened to it more than the one time. Came back to it after not bringing it out of storage for years. Thought it would bring back a period where Bob seemed lost, dazed and confused. He was. Have heard a number of these tunes on live performances where they sounded much better..like he'd figured them out finally. Others had covered them and improved on Dylan's! That's so rare. Only possible when he did so poorly. We're talking about my man Bobby. Sad to write this slagging review but have recently revisited all my Dylan to see what has stood up the best. So many are still the greatest of works. Masterpieces. This is not one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very underrated album, but not a classic Aug. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
Shot of Love and the album that preceded it, Saved, have received, through the years, critical drubbings along the lines of what Dylan's recent movie Masked and Anonymous has garnered. His gospel period, in general, has almost always been looked upon in a generally negative light, and is only now starting to get the credit it deserves with the release of Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan, a collection which features contemporary gospel stars singing some of the man's best songs from the period.
Where does Shot of Love fit into all this? It is an underrated album. However it is not a great album, or a classic. It is much, much more secular than the first two gospel albums; indeed, only one song -- Property of Jesus - is unabashedly Christian. Several of the songs -- Heart of Mine, Lenny Bruce, and possibly several others -- are not Christian at all. There is almost none of the fire and brimstone here that Slow Trained Coming was loaded with; neither is it unabashedly gospel, as Saved was. Dylan wraps the virtues of Christianity up in more everyday forms, and does not bash us over the head dogmatically here; it's barely self-righteous, and it doesn't preach to the choir. Music-wise, none of the songs are in actual gospel style; several are even poppy. Others rock quite hard -- harder than anything since the mid-60's, in fact. Piano is the lead instrument on several songs, often played by Dylan himself. The backup singers do a good job here, and aren't overly intrusive or robotic-sounding, as they sometimes had been in the past. The legendary Jim Keltner is excellent on drums, as always. As for Dylan's singing, let it be known that the album contains some of Dylan's best vocal performances ever. His voice is as sweet as honey on In The Summertime -- a beautiful performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking a Balance April 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
This one of my favorite from Mr. Dylan. It's grown on me. I bought this album for the beautiful and transcendent Every Grain Of Sand, and because of hearing him live in Toronto in 1980. One of his most poetic, it seems inspired by William Blake. In this collection of excellent songs I see Dylan coming from a life-changing experience with Jesus that saw him writing everything with that focus to a point of balance. Now he has begun to write about "the reality of man", but filtered through his Christian understanding; less dogmatic. I still play each of the three or four CDs from this period of Dylan's career more than any other - Infidels included. (I've really tried to like his albums from the '60s and '70s but some of the Beat-inspired lyrics are just too obscure for me - interesting, but I can't relate! Maybe it's because I'm a latter-period Boomer.)
That being said, the music on this album is always great. The band is top-notch. We know from the way Dylan generally works in the studio that the sessions are played without much rehearsal. Indeed, the sounds on this record are warm and natural, with plenty of the natural room sounds on the tracks. This gives it a nice loose feeling which can yield mixed results. For example, Heart of Mine is slowed down here, and comes across as an unfortunately weaker recording of a great song. The unreleased version on the Biograph album is miles better. Other songs have been mentioned by other reviewers. There's not a single bad song here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Load Up The Syringe With Bob, Friend Feb. 12 2004
By Django
Format:Audio CD
Not a classic record, but very solid - "Shot of Love," "Heart of Mine," "In The Summertime," and, of course, "Every Grain of Sand." Among his religious records, it's the most musically upbeat, and the sound is fairly organic, unafflicted by the tragic production values of some of the other early 80's albums.
If you're an established Dylan fan, you should feel confident about picking this one up. If you're not an established Dylan fan, I implore you to go directly to Blood On The Tracks, and click the buy button on the best album you'll buy all year.
