iTunes Review

After a three-album foray into Christian music, Bob Dylan sounds rejuvenated on this 1983 powerhouse. While haunting biblical imagery peppers the aching pop of “Jokerman,” the rocking “Neighborhood Bully” details Israeli conflicts in the Middle East, and blues-charger “Union Sundown” scorns America’s outsourcing of jobs. Dylan’s heart opens on the love-addict’s ballad “Don’t Fall Apart on Me Tonight,” and “Sweetheart Like You” unfolds in bittersweet barroom pickup lines. His on-point band here includes Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler and heroic reggae rhythm section Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.

Dylan's Best Album From The 1980's...

Dylan discovered how to balance his Spiritual / Gospel lyrics with his social commentary on this one. That balance made this a better album than "Slow Train Coming" or "Saved"; but just as challenging lyrically. Dylan focuses more on his Jewish roots, than Christianity here. "Neighborhood Bully" is a tribute to the false perception about Israel being the bully of the middle east. "I And I" is his acknowledgement of the Judaic perspective on God. In "Jokerman" the Biblical books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy are mentioned (The first and second presenting of the Hebrew Law). I recommend the whole album; but if you must economize - # 1, 3, 4, & 6.

An Overlooked Gem

Sly and Robbbie, Mark Knopfler and Bob Dylan make this a must have album. Classic Bob in a well produced packet. All bang and no filler. The best 80s Bob until Oh Mercy!

quite good but...

the 80s production (uninspired drumming) brings it down a little. Still Jokerman, Sweetheart like you, and I and I are great. I'm not too fond of the rest but they aren't bad by any means.

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....
