Bob Dylan - time out of mind

Bob Dylan's 30th studio album from 1997 was considered a return to form (and was multi-Grammy winning) after a long indifferent period and lets be honest the critics were right with this one, its an astounding album.

Proof? Well lets start with the wonderful "Make you feel my love". Bob's voice was pretty shot by now but that doesn't matter that he croaks his way through this warm and sentimental track.

"Love sick" is light and mysterious with its slinky background feel and organ. "Not dark yet" is reflective and atmospheric. "Cold irons bound" is bluesy and spacey. At times raw and damn dirty, at others delicate and fragile this is an album to enjoy over and over again.
