The album starts slowly almost imperceptably, but soon a full and complex wall of sound develops that is so hard to categorise. Production levels are high here, but falls just short of being 'over-produced' so that we hear a rich and multi-levelled texture in all the songs.
There are appearences by Peter Gabriel and U2 on the album, and it is a sign of the respect in which Robbie Robertson is held, that they are content to contribute (highly effectively) in the background without detracting from the whole project. Indeed Gabriel's backing vocals on the opening track are so integral to the feel of it that it would be such a lesser thing without his unique and identifiable sound.
As for Roberston himself, he excels here. His voice is rich and dark with a great warmth and subtlty. The best known track on the album, 'Somewhere Down The Crazy River' defies categirisatin but is just plain great.
