Shot of Love

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Shot of Love finds Dylan still in born-again mode, but he's starting to come alive again -- which isn't as much a value judgment as it is an observation that he no longer seems beholden to repeating dogma, loosening up and crafting songs again. And it's not just that his writing is looser, the music is, too, as he lets himself -- and his backing band -- rock a little harder, a little more convincingly. Shot of Love still isn't a great album, but it once again has flashes of brilliance, such as "Every Grain of Sand," which point the way to the rebirth of Infidels.

    Dont you need a Shot of Love?

    This IS a Great Album! There are no less than three of Dylan's best songs here: "Every Grain of Sand", "The Groom's Still Waiting at the Alter" and "Trouble". There is not a single song on here that doesn't scream greatness. The title track is one of my personal favorites and I usually end up playing it three or four times in a row. "I neeeeeed a SHOT of Love!!" So will you!
