The first religious album...
I did not think I was going to like this album, for many people said it was gospel. I don't mind christian music, but I'm not too fond of that particular genre. Well, I already knew the first song on here (Gotta Serve Somebody), which is not gospel. Come to find out, this is not really a gospel album! The songs on here are smooth, rockin' tracks. I LOVE Slow Train, Gonna Change My Ways, and When You Gonna Wake Up. This has to rank among my favorite Dylan albums. I was bobbin' my head throughout the whole thing. It's amazing!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Faith, Hope and Jesus
Dylan once again does what HE wants to do and once again he gets booed for doing it. This time it seemed particularly unfair as, after being asked for two decades by the media "what's the truth?" he shares what he believes what the truth is and he gets attacked for it. Is it any wonder that after being hassled over his three Gospel albums, Dylan started his infamous mumbling era in live performances? It was as if Dylan was saying, 'If you don't want to hear what I have to say, why should I say it clearly'? But that was still in the future; here Dylan expresses his faith in the Gospel with an excellent set of powerful songs with the uncomfortable directness of a typically new believer, but that does not subtract from the power of these songs. In the last few years the critics (late as ever) have come around to appreciate his three Gospel albums (this one being the first) and perhaps now they will get a fair hearing. Not un-coincidentally, Dylan's live performances have grown more legible as these albums grow more appreciated.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

fresh soulful - in touch with the world and the need for God
So many Christian songs sound alike - they are perhaps written by those who have been sheltered and raised with the faith. Dylan comes from the outside world - he has experienced the disappointments with our secular society and has turned to the Lord as One Who is True and can satisfy. His songs speak to the educated or the idealist who has not found truth and satisfaction in the world - perhaps there is an everlasting Truth in God's Word.Was this review helpful?
