Prior to listening, I was sceptical about the necessity of this release, reanalysing and reinterpreting the Dylan catalogue. However, as well as being a Dylan fan, I have a high respect for Ferry and his output. The CD grips you after the first spin. High quality production capturing the essense of the original, but often setting it in a new direction. Ferry's vocals still have that individuality and are balanced by a tight backing band who do a superb job on all of the tracks here. I congratulate Ferry on the excellent choice of tracks too - yes, some common staples are chosen but they sound fresh and you don't need to skip tracks. There are no duds, which for a covers album is high praise indeed.

It is an album you want to share and recommend, and you will not be disappointed.

Well, I expected this album to be good, but in fact it is brilliant! The energy with which Ferry delivers his vocals is very refreshing, and the arrangements of these classic Dylan tracks are effective. He recorded this album quickly in order to take a break from writing the new Roxy Music album, which is due sometime this year.

Standout tracks on Dylanesque - Times They Are A-Changin', Positively 4th Street and All Along The Watchtower.

Also, The Dylan Sessions are to be released through Eagle in June this year. I think that may be an extended version of the concert which was screened on Channel 4 recently.

Having been a big fan of both Roxy and BF I have always loved the way that most of the songs are structured and performed. In the last few years there have been some questionable songs in terms of performance and content. When I saw the ads for a Dylan covers album I did worry a bit, but never the less bought it. BF's voice has changed, but it some ways its got better, and I enjoy the way he's relaxed the delivery. Never having been into Dylan, I have few reference points to refer to, so all I can say is - EXCELLENT! Spot on performance and content, that leaves you wanting more.

Bryan Ferry brings Dylan alive in many ways. I am a Ferry and Dylan fan. Ferry brings some Dylan stuff out of the non-melodic [though brilliant] poetry genre to the really great song genre. And by so doing, maybe makes Bob Dylan more accessible to more people. A couple of weak tracks, most VG, 2 excellent and worth the money on their own: 'Positively 4th St' and 'Just like Tom Thumb's Blues'. Bryan Ferry turns these around really nicely, a bit like 'Hard Rain' in some ways. Best tenner I've spent in ages. I hope this album inspires one of the most under-rated songwriters to bring out a classic pre-76 type Roxy Music album.

In some ways it matters not that these tracks are cover versions of Dylan's works, the point is how does it sound? I like music and have enjoyed the career of Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry for their music, despite the late wilderness years. Here we have again a peerless Ferry production, all tracks are commendable with some first class musicianship. Forget the carping about the material choice, enjoy this rather good CD for what it is - music to the ears. Carry on Ferry, a little longer.

You'll either love this or you'll hate it, I doubt if there'll be any middle ground. For the record I love it! The selection of songs is intriguing. Some well known, others not so. Curiously, it's the less well known that are the most absorbing on this album.

"Make you feel my love" is by far and away the pick of the bunch. It is achingly beautiful. Rarely has Ferry sounded as vulnerable in his vocal interpretation as on this song. But the album just gets better each time you hear it. Right from the start on "Just like Tom Thumb's Blues" and "Simple Twist of Fate" the groove and understated guitar playing in the background just captivate you completely. You can't help but tap your fingers or move your head as you listen along.

"Positively 4th Street" and "Gates of Eden" are also top draw versions. The production and arrangements on each track are superb, I absolutely adore the CD. Everything from the female backing singers to the supporting musicians suggests CLASS.

Despite having most albums of Ferry/Roxy Music, I hesitated before buying this as 'Frantic' (the last Ferry album) had been so patchy with only about 4 good songs on it, and I've never heard the Dylan originals and wasn't sure what I would make of this collection of covers. But I went for it and boy, am I pleased that I did. What a great album - possibly his best since 'Boys And Girls'.

I gather this was recorded over just a few days - it sounds like the band were really enjoying themselves and provide a great foil for Ferry's more fragile sounding voice - so different to the days when every note was nuanced to the nth degree. There are still variations within the tracks - some ballads, some upbeat, some positively rock - but having such a theme seems to have given this album a cohesion sorely lacking in his past album and revitalised a great singer (at least in my book!). Now let's have that new Roxy album please...

This is a well produced foray into the world of Bob Dylan from the king of lounge lizards Bryan Ferry. Ferry manages to obtain those essential elements of the original Dylan recordings whilst at the same time breathing a new life into songs we all know such as All Along The Watchtower and Knocking On Heavens Door.

Balanced and easy to listen to, an accessable collection of Dylan covers with great vocals and instrumentals.
