All in all, a fantastic show!
He's still got it! Dylan fans can rejoice at the arrival of his best album since 2001's "Love and Theft". That album did not receive the media recognition that it deserved because it was released on, and over-shadowed by, the events of September 11th. I love L&T so much that I refer to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre as the second most important historical event that occurred on that day. Of course the album surprises and fascinates in part because it builds upon and refines what Dylan had started to accomplish with his seminal come-back album from 1997, Time Out of Mind, which won him three Grammys that year, including album of the year. His next two albums were highly successful commercially, but to me it seemed that he had lost the thread, and maybe it was just not possible for him to make a better album than "Love and Theft". Modern Times and Together Through Life are both great albums, and are undoubtedly of the same vintage as his other post-comeback output, but these albums don't have the same depth and intricacy that we expect from a true Dylan classic.
