Customer Reviews

They're having a great time making music together.
Dave Fever Tree Sigmon
All of the songs are good and interesting, but so many of the songs and melodies on this album are mind-blowingly good and touch me deeply.
WSW
Very enjoyable the first time you listen to it- which is saying something for me!

Bob Dylan lyrics, left in a drawer, create a breeding ground. Every musician involved composes new music in which the destiny of these words is at last fulfilled. The music is enduring and diverse. The biggest name here is Elvis Costello and he shines on the humorous rocker "Married to My Hack" and on the gospel-flavored "Six Months in Kansas City (Liberty Street)". But the names that are more sub rosa in the music field engage themselves fully in the music. They switch instruments from song to song. Taylor Goldsmith is at home in the folk taletelling of "Florida Key". Jim James, from My Morning Jacket, musically connects the dots no better than on "Quick Like a Flash", which can only be found on the Deluxe Edition. The same can be said for Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) on the countryish "The Whistle is Blowing", also only found the the Deluxe Edition. But the singer who tops them all is Rhiannon Giddens from the Carolina Chocolate Drops and she plays a fine fiddle and banjo too. Imagine that burst of excitement you feel when you first make contact with her singing on the poetic "Spanish Mary" and on "Hidee Hidee Ho #16" with her voice and Joey Bellorose's shoe-box drum sound. And her haunting delivery on "Lost on the River #20", backed by the stone great acoustic guitars of Goldsmith and Mumford, is something of beauty and transcendence. It gets to the root of American folklore.

Unlike Dylan's "Basement Tapes", this doesn't have that album's informal surroundings and it even sounds slick in parts. But I like this music for what it achieves and that's reaccessing that old "Basement Tapes" spirit. They're having a great time making music together. There's no sense of entitlement, just grateful acknowledgement from musicians and producer.

Format: Audio CD
I was expecting this to have the same type of raw and traditional sound as Dylan and the Band's Basement Tapes. An outright stylistic homage to the original Tapes might've been doomed from the start, so for better or worse, they decided to do their own thing with Dylan's lyrics, creating the sort of sound that Dylan might've wanted to record in the 80's. The craftsmanship of the songwriting and music is, as you'd expect from this group, of good to phenomenal quality. Give it a few spins and you'll be at least mildly addicted. Costello, Mumford, James, Giddens and Goldsmith split the songwriting responsibilities, but they're still working together as a band, with a host of other high-caliber alt-country musicians. I'm partial to the contributions of the Mumford guy, whom I hadn't heard much of before (but I'm aware he's huge right now) and Jim James.

On the downside, it's good, but they don't take a lot of chances, and Dylan is all about keeping the listener on their toes. I'd have welcomed a little more ambition or eccentricity and a little less precision from the musicians.

No- it won't "sound" like Dylan, at least not musically. No- it won't "sound" like The Basement Tapes- at least not many of the cuts - though I think some do. Bottom line, and the mark of quality music, is that it won't matter- you would buy this if it was not connected to Dylan or The Band. And Yes- you will be able to know which of the collaborators wrote each tune by their style….very identifiable- who cares. Bottom line- Very High Quality Music. Very enjoyable the first time you listen to it- which is saying something for me! Hell, T Bone Burnett has his finger prints all over it….say n'more. Enjoy.

I really approached this collection of Dylan lyrics augmented by music written by a cast of contemporary musical luminaries with great trepidation. How would 47 year old lyrics "fit" with the modern styles and musical inclinations of the likes of Marcus Mumford, Elvis Costello et al? The answer is just brilliantly! This is an album anyone-not just Dylan fans-will love. And there are reputedly at least two more volumes to come! Essential

This album is fantastic! All of the songs are good and interesting, but so many of the songs and melodies on this album are mind-blowingly good and touch me deeply. I was already a big fan of Marcus Mumford and Elvis Costello, but now I LOVE Rhiannon Giddens, too!! Kansas City, Spanish Mary, and Hidee Hidee Ho #16 are my top favs!! Grand slam!!

This disc exceeded all expectations!!!! Obviously the lyrics were created by a master song writer, but each artist breathes their own life into the material. As you listen to it you hear traces of Elvis C, Dawes, My morning jacket, Mumford and the Chocolate Drops. However, none of these artists strays too far from the material as the band gels to make some exciting new music without it being just an extension of the bands mentioned above.

New Basement Tapes on Jimmy Kimmel Nov.28. First song great, but then I heard and saw Rhiannon Giddens was in the group and really paid attention. I've seen her in The Carolina Chocolate Drops 3 times and have several of their albums. She is AMAZING. I will buy this album mainly because of her (other greats also in this group.) See the Carolina Chocolate Drops if you ever get the chance.
