Bob Dylan: Love And Theft

Andy Gill, MOJO, October 2001

IT'S BEEN a long time since Bob Dylan released two consecutive albums of top-drawer original material – probably as far back as 1975's Blood On The Tracks and Desire (1976), if we're being honest. But Love And Theft bridges that quarter-century gap with an ease and assurance that belies his years, a more than adequate companion to Time Out Of Mind, the Grammy-winning, million-selling album which re-established him as a vital creative (and commercial) force in contemporary music.
