iTunes Review

World Gone Wrong is a sequel to 1992’s Good As I Been To You, the album that returned Dylan to the purely acoustic folk form after a thirty year absence. While the previous record showed Dylan’s rediscovery of his fondness for this long lost body of song, World Gone Wrong goes deeper. These songs are more intense, more complex, and more intimate than the performances on the prior album. The material leans heavily on blues sources, and Dylan plays “Ragged & Dirty” and Blind Willie McTell’s “Broke Down Engine” with all the required love and tension. The truly spellbinding songs are taken at a slower tempo. “World Gone Wrong” and “Blood In My Eyes” are sweet and ragged and capture the spirit of songsters like Mississippi John Hurt and the Mississippi Sheiks without ever resorting to imitation. Here Dylan doesn’t just tell us what songs he likes, but what he hears in those songs. With these performances Dylan opened a new chapter in his career, and found his calling as an aged songwriter. At 51, he could finally commune with the bluesmen he had so long idolized.

Customer Reviews

Traditional songs shine

I listen to this album all the time. Dylan's the only person playing on it; it's intimate. The guitar and his voice sound raw and natural. It sounds like he's in the room. "Love Henry" is one of my favorite songs he's recorded. "Delia" is heartbreakingly sad. Plays wonderfully alongside his first album.

The Mighty Zimmy

Bob Dylan is in top form here. And if you are at all aware of the past 45 years of popular culture, Dylan's best is our culture's best. On World Gone Wrong, he revisits folk standards with power and conviction. By the way, go download "Dark Eyes" from "Empire Burlesque" for another taste of Dylan's surprisingly underrated modern work.

Simply superb

I just got this one and I absolutely love it. It's the one Dylan album I have that I have listened to consecutively more times than any other (maybe with the exception of 61 Revisited). I hear such passion and feeling in his voice. My favorite is definitely Jack-a-Roe. It's a very serious song. Delia is an instant classic as well. This album comes highly recommended. Everyone should have this in their Dylan collection. Oh, the poor people who haven't heard this yet!

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....
