Knocked out Loaded is a typical Bob Dylan album of the 80s; it's not very good. After Dylan's religious ramblings he had been left with little credability as an artist and would not regain any until 1989's Oh Mercy. Knocked Out Loaded is a weakly put together album of material that Dylan is far superior too. Tracks like "You Wanna Ramble" and "Driftin' Too Far From Shore" will not go down as Dylan classics, and even though "They Killed him" is much more melodic it still hits no highs. If it wasn't for "Brownsville Girl", Knocked Out Loaded would not be worth a listen. "Brownsville Girl" is a long (12 minute) story about a girl, Henry Porter and Gregory Peck; at least I think it is! Basically it's a fabulous song with excellent lyrics, for example: "If there's an original thought out there, I could use it right now." Knocked Out Loaded was one of the last Dylan albums I bought, basically because by then I wanted all of Dylan's work. Don't buy it if you're just getting in to Dylan, it'll turn you right off. Do buy it if you're a hardened Dylan fan, and know that no matter what you'll still enjoy it!

No masterpiece, clearly, Knocked Out Loaded is better than some say. Listen to the joyful exuberance in 'Precious Memories'. Enjoy the engaging surrealism when the child choir kicks in on 'They Killed Him'. The wonky gospel trimmings have the power to surprise and delight this listener (when in the right mood). Lyrically, 'Brownsville Girl' is different to pretty much everything else in Dylan's catalogue (or anyone else's, come to think of it): much to enjoy there. 'Under Your Spell' is a pretty good ballad and works well as a closer. If this was on another Dylan album (perhaps at the end of Infidels), people might rate the song more highly.

Okay, the '1980s rock' stylings and the booming drums don't work, but at least Bob was trying something different with a 'modern' sound. It would presumably have been easy enough for him to knock out ten acoustic songs and get rave reviews, but he bravely chose another path.

Knocked Out Loaded is an interesting experiment, despite (because of?) the parts where it doesn't quite work. Even Dylan's lesser works are worth hearing. This isn't the case with most artists.

In the last song Under your spell-comes a line which gives this album its title-"knocked out loaded"-and it came from a song of the 40s called Junco Partner.
That's what I like about Dylan's music-he grabs stuff from everywhere.
Take the first song You wanna ramble-its a little known one from Junior Parker-the man who wrote Mystery Train and Feelin' Good.
His restructuring of Precious Memories is I suppose unusual and shows imagination
Only 8 songs though as Brownsville Girl takes up over 11 minutes.

This 1986 album, the twenty-fourth studio release from icon Bob Dylan is, next to his preceding album `Empire Burlesque', the album I like least in Dylan's back catalogue. It seems to hark back to `Self Portrait', in that it has a couple of uninspiring covers (indicating Dylan's upcoming struggle with writer's bock) followed by several totally bland and instantly forgettable tracks that fail to make any sort of impression. As with most of Dylan's poor albums however, there is one good song that redeems it a little, here it is the mighty `Brownsville Girl'. It's well produced, finds Dylan giving a committed vocal performance and tells a clear story, in which Dylan draws comparisons between himself and his position in the music industry with that of Gregory Peck's character in the classic Western `The Gunfigter'. It seems that he sees himself as the best that there is around, and that every young buck looking to make a name for themselves is trying to bring him down. It's a great song, but the rest of the album is totally uninspiring.

Dylan seems to like Gregory Peck films, as the cover art appears to be a painting of a scene from the excellent `Bravados', another Peck Western. In fact, I would recommend seeing the two Peck films referenced rather than listening to this album. They are much more entertaining. It is almost worth buying the album for Brownsville Girl, but that appears on a couple of Dylan `Best Ofs', so I would recommend getting those instead.

All in all two stars. It's not actually bad (unlike `Empire Burlesque'), just bland an unmemorable. And there is one great song on here to earn it another star.

Undoubtedly Dylan is the most important artist of the past one hundred years. Most artists are lucky to have the one seminal album, but how many does the Bobster have? 6? 7? And there in lies the problem for him. Fans and critics alike expect so much from the great man that anything that doesn't quite match up to Blonde on Blonde or Blood on the Tracks is awful.

True, Knocked Out is hardly a classic. But there's enough here to make it a worthwhile addition to most people's cd collections - if not for Brownsville Girl alone!

Recorded in 1986 at the time of Dylan's secret marriage to backing singer Carolyn Dennis, Knocked Out Loaded is an upbeat album which contains a mixture of musical styles. It received negative critical reviews at the time, one even calling it a ‘career killer’ – but surely that was 1980's ‘Saved’ (which Dylan recovered from). Listening to KOL 30 years later, it stands out as one of Dylan’s better albums. It is not in the first tier of the majestic Highway 61, Blonde on Blonde, Blood on the Tracks and Desire, but stands somewhere in the second tier alongside ‘Oh Mercy, ‘Time Out of Mind’ to name but two. At the centre of KOL is the 11-minute epic ‘Brownsville Girl’. The lyrics, co-written by the playwright Sam Shepard are cinematic, featuring repeated cryptic references to ‘a movie starring Gregory Peck’ and acerbic wit (‘The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter is that his name wasn’t Henry Porter’). The song has an insistent rhythm and is accompanied by energetic, gospel-style backing vocals. Indeed, the backing vocals are a feature of the album. The album includes a fine re-working of Kris Kristofferson’s tribute to the martyred Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Jesus, ‘They Killed Him’. Bo Diddley drives the rhythm of the Dylan/Tom Petty number ‘Got My Mind Made Up’. The traditional ‘Precious Memories’, is given a light reggae rhythm. There are two Dylan compositions, ‘Driftin’ Too Far from Shore’ and ‘Maybe Someday’, an upbeat blues written by Little Junior Parker ‘You Wanna Ramble’ , and a closing love-song ‘Under Your Spell’, written with Carole Bayer Sager. The album is only 35 minutes long, but this was not typical for the pre-CD era - and means there is no padding. KOL is an underrated album.
