iTunes Review

Bob Dylan’s renewed creative roll that kickstarted on 1997’s Time Out of Mind continues through this 2001 album. With a warm sense of nostalgia he celebrates various forms of American music: There’s rockabilly (the romping “Summer Days”), Appalachian styles (the apocalyptic “High Water (For Charley Patton)”), electric blues (the searing “Cry a While”), folk-rock (the beautiful, jangly “Mississippi”), and even Bing Crosby-styled pop (“Moonlight”). By “Sugar Baby,” the album’s folky finale, Dylan’s the grizzled storyteller informing us convincingly that existence “seems like some dirty trick.”

Customer Reviews

This is a perfect record.

Brilliant. Get it.


Full bodied, bluesy, heavy... this album does not let go. The more I listen to it the more things I find in it that just blow me away. The musicianship is unparalleled, the sound just right. I only wish it had more tracks. Can only imagine what it would be to see these songs performed live. This music transports you to a different place. It's simply beautiful.

Best Dylan Album of the Modern Era

Love and Theft is the album to pick if you are only going to get one written and released in the last 30 years. This album jams, swings, rocks and pulls at the heartstrings all in a perfectly ordered ebb and flow of musical genius. And yes -- seeing these songs performed live with the band if the early 2000s was a sight to see. Most energetic and upbeat Dylan shows I have seen with the band all on point and Bob keeping to the form of the songs as they were created. Get this album if you want to hear Bob at his grizzled best telling stories of love, loss and grinding your way through modern life.

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....
