Bob Dylan - Love and Theft (2001) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
Love and Theft is Bob Dylan's most focused, well-played collection since 1989's Oh Mercy, another Daniel Lanois production. One listen to the fade-in of the opener "Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum" and it's clear that all Dylan's roadwork has shaped him and his band (including guitarist Charlie Sexton) into a mighty musical weapon. And while his craggy howl continues to resonate, it's the songs here that astonish. A sturdy mid-tempo melody makes "Mississippi" the equal of the best numbers on Time Out of Mind, which it was actually written for. He convincingly puts over an R&B swing (yes, swing) numbermore… "Summer Days". "Honest with Me" ("I'm not sorry for nuthin' I've done / I'm glad I fight, I only wished we'd won") is a driving rocker that packs a genuine punch. And the light, lounge-like "Bye and Bye" and the southland ramble "Floater (Too Much to Ask)" show extraordinary confidence. He's labelled these songs "blues-based", but in typical Dylan fashion what would promise to be the most overtly bluesy number here--"High Water (for Charlie Patton)"--sounds like a banjo-based gunfighter ballad. But then that's this artist's gift: confounding expectations. --Robert Baird
