Customer Review

on 8 March 2007
Any one who sets out to re-interpret the works of an icon and genius is setting themselves up for a kicking. In this regard, you have to respect Ferry for risking his artistic integrity in this way. But I suspect Ferry would not care either way. This is a recording of instinct and love without regard to 'career' or 'marketabilty'. It was thrown together in a week by a group of pro's at the top of their game. So why bother?

Well, I'm not a Dylan fan. I find the presentation of his work too abrasive for my taste. But now I sit in shame for not persevering because Ferry has been able to show what fantastic songs he wrote. This, then, is the triumph of the album. An intepreter should be able to show the value of the source material without destroying its integrity. This Ferry does with panache, style and sheer musicality. Not an album for all, but if you love music you can't help admire this collection and you'll probably adore some of it.
