Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Say what you want about Empire Burlesque -- at the very least, it's the most consistent record Bob Dylan has made since Blood on the Tracks, even if it isn't quite as interesting as Desire. However, it is a better set of songs, all deriving from the same place and filled with subtle gems -- the most obvious being "Tight Connection to My Heart Has Anybody Seen My Love?," but also "Emotionally Yours" and "Dark Eyes" -- proving that his powers are still there. The rest of the album may not be as graceful, but it's still well-crafted songwriting that never fails to be interesting.

The record's biggest flaw is its state-of-the-art production; this is every bit as slick as Street Legal, but now sounds more focused and more of its time -- thanks to a reliance on synthesizers and mildly sequenced beats -- than it did upon its original release. All this makes Empire Burlesque seem more transient than it actually is, since -- discounting the production -- this is as good as Dylan gets in his latter days.

    The Politics and Romance era Pt.2

    Although this is an album of Politics and Romance like Infidels was, there is only one memorable song here: "Tight Connection to My Heart". The song "Emotionally Yours" got some play at the time, but it's delivery is more irritating than memorable.
