Review of Time Out Of Mind: "Time Out of Mind" is the first of, so far, three entries in the Dylan "comeback series". Dylan had made some good stuff before "Time Out of Mind", but this album is the one that got people's attention again. Dylan had not made any original material for more than seven years prior to this album's release. So if there were any chance of a comeback, it was riding on "Time Out of Mind". Turns out that "Time Out of Mind" does indeed live up to the hype. While it doesn't quite peak to the likes of Dylan classics such as "Highway 61 Revisited", "Blonde On Blonde", or "Blood On the Tracks, "Time Out of Mind" is still a very relevant entry in the original Dylan canon, and is every bit worth listening to as any work that he has ever done in my opinion. It seemed that up until this time in Dylan's career, that there was little to no fuel left in his ability. Throughout the 80s and early 90s, Dylan was snowballing down a rocky slope. Even Dylan, in interviews about his songwriting ability, and on the album's recording sessions, spoke pessimistically.

Review of Love and Theft: Less introspective but more accessible than it's immediate predecessor, the brilliant 'Time Out of Mind', 'Love and Theft' is an extremely listenable collection of loose blues and ballads from an artist who continues to confound expectations and impress with his seemingly limitless gifts. Time was a darker, much more impressive piece of work; here, Dylan and his crackerjack troops just seem to be having a good time. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as Dylan sounds completely involved throughout and has once again written some tunes destined to be covered by others to greater commercial success. The album just seems a bit slight in the wake of Dylan's surprising artistic resurgence with 'Time Out of Mind'. Perhaps including the excellent "Things Have Changed," his single from the 'Wonder Boys' soundtrack and one of the finest pieces of snarling ambivalence ever written, could have given the album more weight. Then again, the man has more than earned the right to have some fun with the music he makes, and on 'Love and Theft", that sounds exactly like what he's doing.
