Product Description

Product Description

At once relaxed and rocking, romantic and roguish, this 2001 album thrilled fans and instantly placed itself alongside the best albums in his oeuvre. These still sound fresh and inspired a decade later: Mississippi; Summer Days; High Water (for Charley Patton); Po' Boy; Sugar Baby; Lonesome Day Blues , and more!

Amazon.ca

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

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 Following his last studio release “Time Out of Mind” in 1997, “Love and Theft” was the follow-up release with a hiatus of 4 years. It featured backing by his touring band of the time, with keyboardist Augie Meyers added for the sessions. It continued Dylan's artistic comeback following 1997's release. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards. It was nominated for Album of the Year and the track "Honest with Me" was nominated for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.
2 The sound is very well remastered, unlike his latest release, “Fallen Angels” with no remastering at all!

NEGATIVE POINT:

1 No singles were generated from this album.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

“Love and Theft” was Bob’s 31st studio album release, with great sound. Although it peaked higher than his 1997’s release, “Time Out of Mind,” it only achieved “gold” status, whereas “Time Out of Mind” was certified “platinum” in US. The entire set is enjoyable and is recommended to all Bob Dylan’s fans.

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. I'm surprised lots of people seem to think of Mississipi as the best song, I like most of the other tracks better, especially Po' Boy, Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum, and Moonlight. It's not a folk album, it's not a rock album, it's not quite pop either. I'd say it's more of a rockabilly/country album, and maybe that turns some people off.
I can understand if someone doesn't like his singing. Although his voice has just about disintegrated at this point, he's far from being as out of tune as he can be heard on other albums. I think it's actually one of his better singing albums, within the limits of the quality of his voice of course.
I recommend to give the album a second chance if you've tried it once and not liked it. It has really grown on me.

well, it wasn't bad. not by a long shot. i am a little dissapointed in the new sound. i guess i am just more of a fan of dylan's old folk songs, more than his rock and roll. But i have always enjoyed him, up until the 80's. then hee seemed to go sour for a while. but in 88, when he made "Down in the Groove" and in the earliy 90's, i was happy to see his return to hard core folk music. i thought "Time Out Of Mind" was a fine album, deservning of its praise, but again i am saddened by the switch back to a lot of electric.
Love and theft had its share of good tracks, High Water was fabulous, and Mississippi sounded suspiciously like the type from "Time out of Mind". As for the others... i could take or leave them. not what its cracked up to be. But if you like Dylan, might aswell buy it.

[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.
