Product Description

Product Description

What a comeback! Bob's first set of new songs in seven years won three Grammys and hit the Top 10 with these deeply emotional, confessional songs: Love Sick; Dirt Road Blues; Million Miles; Not Dark Yet; Cold Irons Bound; Tryin' to Get to Heaven , and more.

Amazon.ca

At the beginning of Time Out of Mind, Bob Dylan finds himself in the same dead-day world as on 1964's "One Too Many Mornings." By now, though, he can't be bothered to romanticize the street and the distant dogs' barking; he can only moan about how sick he is of love, of himself. Saying it seems to give him the strength to go on, and go on he does, over 11 songs that are among his most plainspoken and musically eloquent. The reconstituted bottle-blues that sparked the early '90s acoustic masterpieces Good As I Been to You and World Gone Wrong carries over to Daniel Lanois's carefully dirty production and a groove that tops anything Dylan's done in a studio since, at least, Blood on the Tracks. No matter how lousy he feels, this is the work of a mighty, mighty man. --Rickey Wright

Format: Audio CD
Time Out Of Mind is a masterpiece of atmospheric mood music and evocative imagery, expressed in moody blues numbers and melodious ballads. This mix of blues and ballad is reminiscent of the style of many Tom Waits albums. Although I prefer the folky ballads, the album forms a cohesive musical statement with an impact that lingers long after the last notes have died down.

The bluesy tracks include Love Sick, the almost talking blues Million Miles and Can't Wait, and Till I Fell In Love With You which in its undulating rhythms is midway towards being a ballad. The instrumental mix and arrangements on all of these are raw and gripping and will have great appeal to those who love blues music.

Despite its title, the uptempo Dirt Road Blues is a fast lilting ballad with a catchy tune. The tone changes for the next song, the melancholy and soulful Standing In The Doorway with its stirring organ and absorbing imagery. I suspect this one will eventually take its place as one of the most memorable songs in his oeuvre. Likewise, the beautiful Tryin' To Get To Heaven has elements of autobiography and haunting poetic phrases that stick in the mind.

There is something darkly prophetic about the shimmering Not Dark Yet, a song of ominous foreboding and weary resignation with sublime poetic lyrics, whilst Cold Irons Bound with its driving beat is closer to a rock song. Not surprisingly, Make You Feel My Love is a straightforward and tender love song, and the album concludes with Highlands, a mid tempo rumination with understated jangling guitar.

Working with Lanois previously produced the 1989 masterpiece Oh Mercy and this one is another winning combination. The mood is mostly somber and reflective, perfectly captured by the production which lends added gravitas to the sentiments expressed. Time Out Of Mind is definitely amongst Dylan's top ten works, a truly timeless masterpiece.

For the longest time, I thought Dylan's best albums were ones released in the 1960s and up to the mid 1970s.
Sure, there were newer releases that I thought bordered on greatness like Infidels and Oh Mercy but still I thought they were on the outside looking in.

Time Out of Mind has forced me to revise my opinion.
It not only breaks into that inner circle but, in my view, solidly shoulders its way among some of Dylan's greatest albums.

Daniel Lanois adds a subtle touch of atmosphere and nostalgia but he doesn't overdo it. The grittiness of that gravelly voice is never polished away. The album is thematically more melancholy and laid back but it never gets boring because each track is very different from one to the next.
Captivating and highly enjoyable from beginning to end.

I've had this album for several years and just picked it up again. Now I can't seem to stop playing it. This CD is absolutely wrenching in its despair--"When you think you've lost everything, you find out you can always lose a little more" but ultimately redemptive--"The sun is beginning to shine on me." It is sad, very sad, but occasionally weirdly funny.
"Time out of Mind" is not an easy listen, but rewards the attention.

This is a very good album, however much of it is for reasons which stand apart from Dylan himself. It is the combination of Bob and Daniel Lanois that make this a great album. The songs are good, no doubt, but without the absolute brilliance of Daniel's production the finished product would not be half as good.

To my ears this album has some of the finest production EVER in rock music. It is the atmosphere of the songs that make it a great album- the sublime interplay of the guitars, the subtle interjection of secondary instruments.

It's funny but listening to it in 2006 the vocals actually sound quite good. Bob's funny that way, it is often only retrospect that we come to understand the quality of his work. I would have given it five stars but personally I find there are a couple weak tracks- Dirt Road Blues is a throwaway and I don't really like Highlands too much, but I would still give Bob much credit for releasing an album of this quality so late in his career. Ditto for Love and Theft and a few kudos for Modern Times which I think is the weakest of the three.

Bob Dylan's Time Out Of Mind is certainly a mixed affair. I enjoy the bluesy tone very much. And there are several compelling numbers particualrly the eerie Sick Of Love, the pleasant shuffle Dirt Road, and the touching Make You Feel My Love. The instrumental support is certainly first rate.
However, whereas the bluesy tone is a good change of pace for Dylan, there definitely is little variation from it. The pacing is slow to mid tempo on most of the tunes. Furthermore, nine of the eleven of them excede the five minute mark including the tiresome Highlands which clocks in at over an ung-dly sixteen minutes. To think that song drags along at the same pace without an instrumental break and then fades out at the long awaited end is just mind boggling.
I have nothing against long songs. However, there must be some significant musical ideas presented in order to captivate my attention. Time Out Of Mind is decent in that area but certainly not outstsanding let alone Grammy Award Winning.
Truthfully I would prefer Love and Theft to this collection, as Dylan includes more styles in this more recent collection. Furthermore, the songs do not overstay their welcome.
