Editorial Reviews

Product Description

What a comeback! Bob's first set of new songs in seven years won three Grammys and hit the Top 10 with these deeply emotional, confessional songs: Love Sick; Dirt Road Blues; Million Miles; Not Dark Yet; Cold Irons Bound; Tryin' to Get to Heaven , and more.

Amazon.com

At the beginning of Time Out of Mind, Bob Dylan finds himself in the same dead-day world as on 1964's "One Too Many Mornings." By now, though, he can't be bothered to romanticize the street and the distant dogs' barking; he can only moan about how sick he is of love, of himself. Saying it seems to give him the strength to go on, and go on he does, over 11 songs that are among his most plainspoken and musically eloquent. The reconstituted bottle-blues that sparked the early '90s acoustic masterpieces Good As I Been to You and World Gone Wrong carries over to Daniel Lanois's carefully dirty production and a groove that tops anything Dylan's done in a studio since, at least, Blood on the Tracks. No matter how lousy he feels, this is the work of a mighty, mighty man. --Rickey Wright

Approaching this album as an admirer (but certainly not a dedicated fan), I was not prepared for the impact it would have on me. Here is an album, released at a time when most artists would be wrapping up their careers, that is as strong as anything he has ever done. While a few tracks manage to get the foot tapping in pleasure, the CD overall is full of regret, lamentation, sadness, and the inevitable approach of death. Sung with grit and passion, the songs demonstrate that there are indeed second acts in the lives of Americans (and musicians). Dylan is one of the few artists remaining who has lyrics worth listening to (each song is like an intimate story told by an old friend) and for anyone interested in understanding how all of us are burdened by the past, pick up this disc immediately. Dylan's scars are well-earned and he commands our attention with every note.

Bob Dylan I think has fooled some of his fans by creating one of the best blues-inspired albums I have heard. Those who know him in his folk days may be disappointed, but fans of traditional blues should flock to this album. Well-crafted lyrics focus largely on the aspects of aging and the pain of love, and love lost; the background is simple, inspired by blues with a touch of folk to help things along. The ballads are the best; "Tryin' To Get to Heaven" and "Not Dark Yet" are my personal favorites.
Daniel Lanois's production adds an ambient feeling to the album. Its a mixed bag: For the ballads (which tend to be the odd numbered tracks), the ambient touch gives the songs a certain distance that really emphasizes the loss and the sorrow in the lyrics. It helps these songs immensely. For the improv blues tracks (which tend to be the even numbered tracks), I'm not so sure that a more forward production would've been more beneficial, to give the production a rawer feeling. Irregardless, to me, it's not enough of a distraction to seperate the listener from the lyrics. Some listeners may view this differently.
I'm a big fan of blues in itself; what Bob Dylan has done with this album is amazing, if you look at it from a blues angle. The album is NOT very folk-rock oriented; if you come into this album expecting "Highway 61 Revisited", you are probably going to be disappointed. In my opinion this album is best appreciated with repeated listenings. You will then appreciate what its got: simple lyrics and simple music that produce a powerful impact. A masterpiece of a different kind, proving that Bob Dylan is incredibly talented at writing music from the heart, even 30 years after he began.

...Costello that is. Who once said that he thought this was Bob Dylan's best album. Everyone guffawed at Costello's hyperbole at the time. I mean better than 'Blood on the Tracks'? 'Highway 61 Revisited'? 'The Times They Are a Changin'? 'Blonde on Blonde' for God's sake? Well now it's nearly 10 years old and it just gets better and better. It doesn't have the shock factor that those earlier issues had but rather it just seeps into you over repeated listening. It's subtle and quietly profound. It's the best album he ever made.

With "Time Out of Mind," Bob Dylan has created a masterwork of longing and regret that stands with the best of his legendary career. More than the poignant, frightening ruminations of a man nearing 60, "Time Out of Mind" is the particular product of Dylan's fertile imagination and musical pedigree. You could not imagine it being anything but the offspring of the same heart and mind that begat "Blonde on Blonde" and "Blood on the Tracks."
Dylan sings with the blues-soaked intensity of a late-night confessional, the architecture of which can be credited to Daniel Lanois' clean and reverentially hushed production. Virtually every track is an exercise in hard living and the settling of emotional accounts. Standouts such as "Dirt Road, "Cold Irons Bound" and "Not Dark Yet" are among Dylan's most haunting and affecting efforts.
As he is occasionally wont to do, Dylan sprinkles in a couple of throwaway numbers; these do not serve to detract from the album so much as to illuminate the extraordinary depth of the other songs, such as "Highlands," a 16-and-a-half-minute talking blues that closes the release and finds Dylan surveying his own charred emotional landscape.
"Highlands" is heavy stuff for sure, particularly when Dylan spots a group of kids drinking and dancing on the public green and longingly admits, "I'd give anything to turn back the clock"; or when he brutally acknowledges, "The party's over, and there's less and less to say.

I really don't understand why so many see this brilliant work of Bob Dylan as "bleak," let alone terrifyingly bleak. Even when I was a kid...a little kid...and my sister died in 3 days of some mysterious ailment, I knew life somehow might not have a "happy" ending. The point is this: who really cares whether a great artist - no, actually the greatest artist in poetry-music-and-composition with a dash of magic and mysticism [who gifts us with his take of "time" (illusive at best) or "mind" (virtually impossible to navigate)] is being "positive" or "negative?" I destest those words, and I am not evolved enough to label genuis. I can't frame Bob Dylan in this album or any other. I can't even define myself! It changes, moves, flows, grows, or it's dead. All I can say as a woman who came of age in the 1960's that - I want the truth - unvarnished, stripped of any sugar-coating but with style, panache, class, and grace - oh yes, genius too. If I'm honest, there's many a time for feeling sad, (maybe even sadder than sad)...and one reaches for a companion along the way. It doesn't have to be a voice at the end of a phone; or a typed reply at the end of some email. It need only be sublime poetry and music from a man (a real man...) who knows just how tough this world is, and simply refuses to dissemble. That, in and of itself, gets me up off the floor and standing once again. For when we really are afraid of truth, we are running away from ourselves...and thank God there are many who refuse to do so - like the one, and the only, Bob Dylan.
