Una obra maestra, que colocaría incluso entre los 5 mejores discos de Bob Dylan, y que crece con cada escucha.
Very atmospheric album with great production by Daniel Lanois. There are some wonderful bluesy sounds on this one and "Make You Feel My Love" is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard by Mr. Dylan. This is definitely one of Bob's best efforts.
It's actually all that and more. This is one of Dylan's absolute masterworks. For me, it rivals Blonde on Blonde for the best album of his career (and is on the short list for best album of all time). I hope Dylan will collaborate with Lanois again because both of the albums they have done together are some of the best of his career.
Dylan's still got it. That humor, paired with the biting honesty about life and mortality, is still alive and well inside him. It might be sung by a voice that sounds like a congested chain-smoker, and it might be sung over the top of a very unique instrumental sound, but it works all the same. Every track on here, despite some of their simplicity, has something really nice to offer. Each one is a slow burner, in such a way that the five minute and the fifteen minute songs feel the same length if you aren't paying too much attention. The instrumentation probably contributes to this, in its hazy way. Soaked in reverb and distant organs. I quite enjoy it. Its the kind of sound that can just be soaked in, and works better the longer it goes, culminating in the absurdly simple yet absorbing Highlands. This feels like one of those albums I will be coming back to my whole life, for a little taste of that bluesy serenity.
85/100 (Very Good)
La canzone iniziale di "Time out of mind", "Love sick", mi piace molto: ha un incedere quasi minaccioso, notturno, bluesato. Il mio problema con questo disco nasce a partire dalla canzone successiva e continua per tutto l'album dal giorno della sua uscita. Non che la tensione presente nel pezzo di apertura cali o che le canzoni non siano valide, anzi. Il fatto è che "Time out of mind" mi è sempre sembrato una versione sbiadita di "Oh mercy", una fotografia fuori fuoco e, con i suoi pezzi mediamente lunghi, anche abbastanza noioso. In questo giudizio parzialmente negativo, comunque, so di essere, più che in minoranza, assolutamente da solo.
One of his best albums came after a long layoff for him. The voice is noticeably damaged but the songwriting and the way the he uses that voice is spellbinding.
His best album since Blood on the tracks. Very good.
A rejuvenated Dylan meets a producer in his prime (Daniel Lanois) and the results are fantastic. You have to go back to Blood on the Tracks to match it...
Hmmm... apparently someone doesn't like any of the comments about this album. Anyway, listening to it again after a long time and it still is quite a good listen. I'm not a huge fan of it though, my rating used to be 90, and now I reserve that for really top notch albums. Still great, but curious why I didn't immediately want to listen to it for a month straight? That's a 90 to me.
When time out of mind came out in September 1997, it had been seven years since Bob Dylan had released any original material, and that was the underwhelming, under the red sky. Since that mediocre album, Dylan released two acoustic records, a collection of covers of old blues and folk songs. He also made an appearance on MTV's successful unplugged series. Dylan's performance though was again a disappointment. Dylan then started to suffer from health problems and was hospitalized for a time in 1996 with a heart problem. He made a successful recovery. So, after all of this it was a pleasant surprise that the new album was a much needed return to form. For the second time in his career, his new record was produced by Daniel Lanois, whose atmospheric soundscapes had made Dylan's, oh mercy, album such a success. He works his magic here too. Time out of mind though was different from other Dylan albums. Dylan was definitely older, maybe wiser, certainty grumpier, but still regained a mischievous twinkle in his eyes. The new record was dark, spooky, it was about loneliness, bitterness, aging, and mortality. The first thing you notice on opener, love sick, is Dylan's voice, it really is wrecked beyond repair, but it suits the material perfectly. He's the first of the rock stars to deal with the sadness and frustration of growing old. There's no better example of this than on the epic closing track, highlands, when Dylan alludes to, 'all the young men with the young women looking so good, well I'd trade places with any of 'em in a minute if i could'. This is coming from Bob Dylan, living legend, and this is the way he feels, he wants to be young again. Mortality, plays it's part in, tryin'to get to heaven, and, not dark yet, surely both inspired by his recent health scares. Everything and everyone is cold, he's standin'in the doorway cryin', he's sick of love, he left his life with someone back there along the line. Bob's not a happy camper. And what's more, he's running low, the party's over, he moans, and there's less and less to say, and everything looks far away, but it's not all doom and gloom, and there is some wonderful black comedy here and there, 'you don't read with binoculars, do you'?. The songs range from the slow burning, love sick, the railroad shuffle of, dirt road blues, the brooding, million miles,to the funeral dirge of, not dark yet, as well as, to make you feel my love, one of Dylan's most beautiful ballads for years, the metallic blues of, cold irons bound, and the midnight burning, can't wait. Time out of mind, is classic Dylan, it's up there with his best, a mortal masterpiece.
