Together Through Life
by Bob Dylan
Released: Apr 2009
Together Through Life might lack the cohesiveness of Dylan's Love and Theft and Modern Times, but its gruff energy and ace performances (Los Lobos accordionist David Hidalgo and Petty guitarist Mike Campbell) make it a spirited collection. Dylan is rootsy and moody, striding through "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" with a second-line Chicano strut, sneering come-ons in "Shake Shake Mama" and landing with a south-of-the-border lilt on "This Dream of You." Even if the themes are erratic and the lyrics a bit dashed off, the album's raw energy packs a bar-brawling punch.
