Customer Review

on 17 June 2003
Believe it or not this is the album I often reach for while many of the Dylan 'classics' gather dust on the shelves. I got all the other Dylan albums before this one because of the bad reviews. Don't make the same mistake. Even though Dylan has since re-thought his views on christianity this album is a very worthwhile purchase and an important stop on Dylans journey.
'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!
