After many trips to get cds and never getting it I finally got this for Christmas this year. After my first listen I could see why it won a Grammy for Album of the Year. Still, I didn't realize it's brilliance until right now. Dylan's lyrics, as usual, are brilliant. I was told that this record is one that is great for listening to right after you've been broken hearted. All you really need to listen to is 'Standing in the Doorway' to realize that this is completely true. The story that he tells in the song would be easy to identify with if you were in that situation.

It seems like on this particular record Dylan tried a different method of singing. It's not just the fact that his voice is straining after so many years. Rather, it feels like he's singing it differently. If I remember correctly from reading Chronicles Vol. 1, he did learn a new way of singing from someone.

This album just shows that even after so many years Dylan can still put out an amazing record.

It is difficult to pick a favorite song when it comes to Dylan. However, I think 'Not Dark Yet' wins this round for me.

I highly, highly, highly recommend this to everyone who doesn't already own it.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

"Tryin' to Get to Heaven" has to be my favorite. The lyrics are incredibly tragic yet the music is beautiful. Easily in my top 10 Dylan compositions.

Amazing, amazing album. It's probably my favorite from Dylan. My location is a reference to that album.

i've been meaning to make this thread forever. time out of mind is the most eloquent heart break album i've ever heard. it took a while for me to truly even be able to relate to the enormity of the depth of emotion on there. i'd listened to it many times before but one day i felt just how i imagine dylan does here and it really did click with me. ever since it's been like the veil has been lifted and i feel every note. the vocals, even the music on this record may not quite reach what dylan did in the late 60s early 70s but it's easily his most mature work.

fave tracks- not dark yet, standing

This board sure does love Bob Dylan. Much more so than I remember 2+ years ago. 2nd place in artists listened to on the RM last.fm list. I think I was over-exposed to his music as a child, and it doesn't seem like anything special to me anymore. Then again, some of the covers of his songs are my favorite covers ever.

On topic, I have never listened to this album.

Is that not at the part when he is recording 'Oh Mercy'?

I listened to 'Time Out of Mind' and 'Love and Theft' over right before seeing his gig a month or so ago, because I knew he'd probably play a bunch of tracks off each. I hadn't listened to them much before, but they clicked better coming back to them, especially 'L&T' which I played on the way to the venue. Good setup for the show.

I can't recall if it was 'Oh Mercy' or not. But I believe he at least mentioned Time out of Mind didn't he?

The worst voice in recorded music, 30 years passed its prime, croaking out horrible dirty old man ditties which would later be used in Victoria's Secret commercials. The success of this album was tragic because Scott Walker and Donovan were making some of the best music of their careers at that point.

It makes no sense to me: how can you rank Bright Eyes high on your year end list and shit on Bob for his voice?

It's like apples and oranges.

Well, more like rotten prunes and moldy avocados.

Yeah, "Oh Mercy" was where he got involved with Daniel Lanois and the music got a bit more ethereal and echoey and he began to appreciate his "worn out old man voice". He perfected the union of the two with Time Out Of Mind.

For those hating on Dylan's voice, I have to say that not so many years ago as I got more and more into classic rock artists, both Dylan and Neil Young took forever for me to latch on to because of their voices.

But once you come to appreciate the brilliance of their songwriting, the vocals somehow just start to fall in line with it. For a lot of people that appreciation just comes with age. But believe me, if you give it long enough, you'll come to see why Bob is in a class all by himself.

Reading his book right now, great fucking read by the way, and he goes into great detail about finding his new voice, and man, it's worth a read.

Very well put, I could not agree more

Love this album. But I prefer the one that follows it.
