Does the world need another Bob Dylan rendition? Is handing in your take on Dylan an artistic rite of passage? The answer to these 40-year-old questions is long gone and we must simply concern ourselves with the quality of the version(s) we're exposed to--are they respectful interpretations, paint-by-numbers remakes, or lazy cast-offs? Drive-Thru's unexpected, though top-notch, Listen to Bob Dylan collects 21 takes on a wide range of Dylan's work. Nothing seems hasty here, and when artists choose to rearrange they do so with skepticism-easing care. Anberlin's "Like a Rolling Stone" adds a new aggressive twist without thrashing it. Cerys Matthews's rendition of "I Believe in You" is in the dreamy spirit of Nico's now 30-year-old "I'll Keep it With Mine." Australia's great Kisschasy gives "She Belongs to Me" a perfect modern power-pop position--consider the song is older than any band member here--and Dave Melillo's "It Ain't Me Babe" assignment is as believable as any version of this song ever. The worst that can be said about this collection is that superstar Jason Mraz sounds uninspired and the Rock 'N' Roll Soldiers should have picked just about anything other than "Rainy Day Women." --Peter Hilgendorf

I was given this collection as a gift, but like collecting original Dylan as well as good interpretations. This is great stuff from mainly unknown acts (to me anyway apart from local band Kisschasy). I love most of it and it grows on me everytime I play it. Best tracks are RX bandits take on "Hattie Carroll", both Steel Train tracks, Jenoahs "Man In Me" and the Formats version of "Simple Twist". As I'm now 50 all these tracks are well known in the original versions to me and I enjoy the exhuberence of these new versions except for "Rainy Day Women" which I didn't like as an original anyway!

I found this cd to be so much more than I expected. It is so great to hear Dylan's songs retouched by individual artists. Every song is different while keeping a steady flow of easy listening music. It was also a surprise to find James Blunt among the group of artists. Roark and Steel Train are my favorites but I really enjoy it all.

I bought this cd because I like Dylan and my teenaged kids do, too. They introduced me to "emo" groups and I am open to listening to all music. I don't like all emo bands but some of the bands on this particular cd did a great job. I particularly like Dave Melillo - he has a voice that actually sounds trained. Another great is Jason Mraz who does a wonderful job. I agree with everyone that Rainyday should've been dumped - I've never liked it. Give this cd a chance and don't put people down because they are young ... still learning and growing. Remember Dylan was young once, too :)
