Not dark yet. One of the greatest pieces of all time.

A good album but overproduced. At times you just want to tell it to calm down and speak to you normally.

This is Dylan's 30th album issued in 1997, and the second album produced by Daniel Lanois just after "Oh Mercy" (1989). When one listens to it for the very first time, it might sound strange and not easily accesible, although according to Clinton Heylin it sounds like a Lanois CV. Actually, as Dylan explained it in an interview in Guitar World Magazine, the main goal was "to make a record that sounds like a record played on a record player", and it just works out.
Strong bluesy numbers included here ("Love sick", "Million miles", "Cold irons bound" for instance) and undisputabely some of the most beautiful ballads ever written by Dylan ("Standing in the doorway" and the famous "Not dark yet"). What is remarkable here is the beauty of the lyrics poetry and the outstanding beauty of the music itself. Among the very best musicians in the world took part in this masterpiece, featuring Cindy Cashdollar, Duke Robillard, Jim Keltner etc.
The album was isssued on Vinyl LPs (out of print now) and CD (still available) and the sound is extremely different: paradoxically rough on vinyl format and clean on CD format; i think it's better and accurate on LP.
Sometimes an artist is able to misjudge his own work: Dylan told his dissatisfaction about the final result. Nevertheless, "Time out of mind" is a genuine masterpiece: the album won 3 Grammy awards including 1998 best album of the year, it was ranked #1 in the "Village Voice" 1997 Critics' Poll, and made "Uncut" magazine's Album of the year. It ranked #408 in the RS 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and is mentionned in the All-TIME 100 Albums. All these awards it did truly desserve.
