Album Review

After spending much of the '90s touring and simply not writing songs, Bob Dylan returned in 1997 with Time Out of Mind, his first collection of new material in seven years. Where Under the Red Sky, his last collection of original compositions, had a casual, tossed-off feel, Time Out of Mind is carefully considered, from the densely detailed songs to the dark, atmospheric production. Sonically, the album is reminiscent of Oh Mercy, the last album Dylan recorded with producer Daniel Lanois, but Time Out of Mind has a grittier foundation — by and large, the songs are bitter and resigned, and Dylan gives them appropriately anguished performances. Lanois bathes them in hazy, ominous sounds, which may suit the spirit of the lyrics, but are often in opposition to Dylan's performances. Consequently, the album loses a little of its emotional impact, yet the songs themselves are uniformly powerful, adding up to Dylan's best overall collection in years. It's a better, more affecting record than Oh Mercy, not only because the songs have a stronger emotional pull, but because Lanois hasn't sanded away all the grit. As a result, the songs retain their power, leaving Time Out of Mind as one of the rare latter-day Dylan albums that meets his high standards.

Customer Reviews

The re-birth of Bob

Reinvigorated by two back to his routes albums of folk standards (Good as I Been to You and World Gone Wrong), Dylan's muse returns with a vengeance. Dark, brooding but not without humour, this record benefits from the Daniel Lanois' swamp blues production that helped make Oh Mercy such a success, and begins Dylan's late career flowering leading to Love and Theft and Modern Times.

Renaissance Man;

I agree with Sweeney..Dylan's back with a bang.A stand out record from a far from washed out legend.How did you do it Bob?I never saw this coming! I urge the public to investigate this record..you will be pleasantly suprised.

Top Draw

Simply Dylan at the top of his game again,constantly changing and evolving over the years,this album sits at the top as one of the best he has produced,even casual listeners or fans will love this.

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
