Bob Dylan "Empire Burlesque (1985)"


I'm going to keep this short. Download Dark Eyes and skip the rest!

Favorite Song: Dark Eyes

I need to dig up Empire Burlesque, because I don't remember hating it that much. I know a lot of people can't stand the production...

I haven't listened to it for ages, though. I might be in for a nasty surprise.

So, I just pulled out Empire Burlesque because I haven't listened to it for ages and couldn't remember much about it except that it was very much of the 80's and had "Dark Eyes" on it. It's not that bad - but I have a strong tolerance for 80's production.

Strip some of these songs down, and you might have a pretty good album. But his voice and the production just doesn't mesh - it sounds awkward.

Far from his worst, though.

Dylan's my favorite artist, and Empire Burlesque is one of my favorite albums. The only dud track is Clean Cut Kid, and even that song has a cool riff. Most people who've heard the, um, alternate version (without Arthur Baker's overdubs) prefer it.

I've heard a lot of people saying Bob Dylan can't sing and that's like.. stupid. Hah. No, I respect their opinion, but Bob Dylan can sing, no doubt about it. Maybe they just think he sounds strange or something? Is it more teenagers that dislike him? (Ok, I am a teenager, but... I'm odd too so.)

Have anyone seen "I'm Not There"? Of course you have, it's a great movie and I really think all the characters made a fantastic job, especially the ones playing Bob Dylan himself. Cate Blanchett improved me the most. Maybe I went OT now, sorry..

I like how I've done two reviews in two months and there's only three sentences between the two of them.
