iTunes Review

Dylan was always widely known for his raw, spontaneous approach to recording, so his embrace of more elaborate ‘80s production techniques here marked a major shift. But while the textured synth tones and big drum sound add drama, every Dylan album is really about the songs. And tunes like “Clean Cut Kid,” a visceral portrait of America’s culture of violence, and “Seeing the Real You at Last,” a trenchant takedown of a relationship gone rotten, are as vivid and vibrant as anything in his catalog.

Customer Reviews


I CANNOT BELIEVE I am the first person to review this album on iTunes. Secondly, I cannot believe this album has historically been given such poor treatment. Sure the album cover is very bad, and yes it does have that 1980's feel to the some of music itself, (I dislike 80's pop rock tremendously) but looking beyond that, this is a completely underrated album both musically and lyrically. As I write this it is the 30th anniversary of the release of this album. Bob should rerelease it with a new cover and outtakes (like New Danville girl). Maybe a bootleg series even. Because.....This is Definitely not a bad Dylan album. It's one of his best!

Dylan's finest album of the decade. Real Dylan fans will enjoy

This is easily Bobby's finest album of the decade. Rarely has an artist come back from a let down on their previous album and rebounded like this. Firing on all cylinders, Bobby produces a near masterpiece of sonic texture, genius instrumentation, and an un cluttered lyrical feast for the ears. True Audiophiles and Musicians alike have long included this on their top albums of the eighties and among Dylans's lost gems, right up there with the basement tapes. If you do nothing else this year, do yourself the favor and add this GLORIOUS and IMPECCABLE masterpiece to your'll thank me later!

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....
