Down In The Groove by Bob Dylan
Released: May 1988
Label: Columbia/Legacy
As with 1986's Knocked Out Loaded, this one was universally reviled by critics upon release in 1988. While the "Tin Man Hitting Tin Into Tin" drum sound is almost totally gone, and the overall production is light-years better, there are other problems: Whereas Dylan's lyrics had previously been the type of thing people wrote rapturous books about, here they are, God help us, trite (see "Death Is Not the End"). Although when people are writing books and acting like they know you because of some songs you wrote about girls a long time ago, there may be a temptation to really bum them out.
