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.

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.

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 raw slice of blues and rock n' roll simply has to best the best thing that Bob Dylan has come up with since "Blood On The Tracks".
The lyrics are dark and moody, at times even bitter, and the narrator often seems resigned to a fate other than the one he used to dream about when he was younger and more idealistic. But, in case you doubted it, "Time Out Of Mind" proves that Bob Dylan can actually sing. His phrasing is perfect, and his vocals more powerful than you can imagine if you've only ever heard him do "Blowin' In The Wind" in 1963.
Highlights include "Love Sick" ("I'm sick of love", Dylan sings), "Tryin' To Get To Heaven", "Not Dark Yet" and "Dirt Road Blues" - which actually is a genuine blues, unlike about a thousand other songs with the word "blues" in the title.
But my absolute favorite song off this album is "Make You Feel My Love", easily one of the most beautiful love songs ever written.
These songs have it all, both melody and powerful, intelligent lyrics, and Dylan's dark, raspy vocals [fit] them perfectly.
Bob Dylan has certainly made more influential albums than this one (no one can be expected to revolutionize popular music more than once, after all), but he rarely made a better one.

Whether you think this is Bob's best CD or not is not really important. The important thing is that this Album, song for song, is definately one of the top three of the 90's. And with bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Tom Waits, and Radiohead, Pumping out great albums during the 90's, that is saying a lot, a whole lot. Bob's lyrics are always good, very good, but rarely are they this amazing. The album is incredibly sad and uplifting at the same time. If you are a Bob Dylan fan in any way shape or form, you NEED to purchase this album. Many people compare this album to Blood on the Tracks. It's not any better or any worse than Blood on the Tracks. They are very different from eachother. They are very different albums that were written in very different time periods. It gets compared to Blood on the tracks so much just because both albums are so heartfelt and moving. Basically what you have here are two great albums (possiblly his best two) battling it out for the number one spot. But the problem is the albums are both too good and too different to pick one over the other. The bottom line is that this is an amazing album, and possibly his best. Therefore this is a must buy for any Dylan fan. If this is what we can look for in Dylans next album, then I am all ears. Although it has been 4 years since Time out of Mind. So who knows what can be expected, or if he even will do another album.

The obvious question: Is "Time Out of Mind" better than "Blood on the Tracks"? Yes. It is simply one of the finest albums that I've been priveleged to hear. Not initially, mind you. It was rather grating the first five times.
For many young men, Dylan is more than an idol. He is a role model and father figure. Most of the songs on "Time" are written by the same--although aging--Dylan that gave us such classics as 'It Ain't Me, Babe' and 'Positively 4th Street': songs that speak of love and loss, all the while hitting the listener with a plethera of emotions that can only be described as utterly 'human'. "Time" is a rare expressive album that eloquently dodges sappiness and self-glorification. It is a guidebook to masculinity at the dawn of the new millenium.
"Carefully dirty"--I wish those were my words. Take, for example, a lyric from 'Standing in the Doorway: "...Buddy you'll roll no more..." Can the listener honestly believe that this 'Dylanesque' lyric was muffled on accident? Not likely. Or how about a lyric from 'Love Sick' (which, by the way, has a beautifully dark solo): "Sometimes...I want to take to the road and plunder..." This rather mundane attempt to tie a rhyme just wouldn't have worked on an album like "Oh Mercy". On "Time", however, it is a testament to Dylan's humility.
"Time Out of Mind" is the soundtrack of my life.
