'Saved' has a rather special quality that seems to be absent in a lot of music today: passion. Imagine the power of Dylan's songwriting and delivery behind a real 'message', backed by superb gospel vocals and you have 'Saved'. This is an intense and passionate recording by a man who truly believes in what he is singing. I challenge anyone with an ounce of sensitivity not to be moved by 'covenant woman' , 'pressing on' or 'in the garden'. Saved is, in my opinion, a far more worthwhile purchase than many of Dylans 80's albums .
Do make sure you get the wonderful 'Slow Train Coming' first though!
To me this seems like another case of Dylan doing something a little out of context and his fans being offended by a man who is supposedly the prophetic voice of generations. I suggest this should be overlooked in favour of the pure joy and excitement in some of these songs (Saved being my personal favourite). Dylan sings with conviction and none of the performances seem lackluster.
The religious sentiment may not to be to everyones taste, and I didn't expect such music from Dylan but it is not to say it isn't worthwhile music. The musicians on this album lay down some great tracks and though Dylan may not be the poet he was on earlier albums such as 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan' and 'The Times They Are A' Changing' he's having a good time.
I was always a firm believer in creating music for yourself, and this is Dylans journey, we're just along for the ride. Who are we to pass judgement on how he feels?
As the man himself once said 'Don't criticise what you can't understand'. Some of the truest words ever spoken, or sung.
Not listened to Saved for, oh, at least 20 years. However for some reason I recently stumbled on it again, dusted it off and gave it a spin. What I rediscovered was a straightforward, soulful gospel/rock album which managed to uplift my sagging spirits (not in any religous way!). The sound is full, solid and warm, dominated by a chugging rhythm section, wailing hammond organ and amazing backing vocals.
At the (post punk) time it was deeply unfashonable, but now we're allowed to like gospel, country and roots music again it makes much more sense.
Standout tracks are Covenant Woman and the rapturous Pressing On.
Next stop in my journey of rediscovery - Slow Train Coming.
