Overview

Forty-three albums into his four-decades-plus career, Bob Dylan at 60 still keeps us on our toes. At an age when his peers have long lost their creative edge, Dylan continues to toss his audience curveballs. Furthering the winning streak begun with 1997's acclaimed Time Out of Mind, Love and Theft offers acerbic observations, slapstick humor, and keening blues-rock galore -- the product of a man who's matured, yet willing to learn a thing or two along the way. The music is edgy, and his lyrics are laden with a unique combination of dark humor and chagrined cynicism. Dylan gets decidedly down-and-dirty on songs like the unvarnished "Lonesome Day Blues," which rivals the looser rockers on Blonde on Blonde, and the electrifying "Cry a While." When he's ready to reach beyond the full-tilt boogie approach, he heads for the hills -- of Appalachia, that is -- for the banjo-buoyed "Floater" and the gorgeous, gossamer "High Water (for Charley Patton)," which echoes the haunted growl of the titular bluesman. Like Dylan's best work, the album is as riddled with belly laughs as with head-scratchers, as borne out by the jug-band rib-tickler "Po' Boy," which practically bursts with Marx Brothers surrealism. The humor is abundant, as are the harsh indictments, making Love and Theft a criminally good album from a musical icon officially on a roll. Don't think twice, it's more than alright.
