ALBUM REVIEW: Bob Dylan ~ Shadows In The Night

ptw scorebw8.5shadows-cover-newBob Dylan has recorded many covers over the years but never has he arranged and performed them with such reverence and austere beauty as he does here.

Produced by Dylan under his pseudonym Jack Frost and recorded live with no overdubs, the ten songs are reduced to the essence of their storytelling form. Dylan’s voice is the focal point and it’s never sounded this intimate and richly toned. He digs deep into the emotional core of the songs, investing a lifetime of musical exploration in each line and phrase while the band gently break hearts in the background, playing with gorgeous subtlety and restraint. In the latter part of his career Dylan is still finding new ways to paint traditional forms with his genius.
