Yeah...it is a great album, but I wouldn't say that he's reinvented himself. He has certainly dabbled in all of these styles in the past. It is a great album though, and he is one of the few artists that manages to put out material decade after decade that has the quality of his first decade. You can't really make that claim about too many musicians these days.
i saw dylan perform most of the pieces from love & theft this past sunday (as well as some new versions of such great songs as "visions of johanna," "masters of war" and "blowin' in the wind"). that performance leads me to believe that dylan has, indeed, reinvented or at least reinvigorated his style, his enthusiasm and his astounding musical ability. i've seen mr. zimmerman perform many times, beginning in 1963. his latest concert in denver (the 3rd so far this year) is simply the best i've ever seen. buy this album. it ranks up there with his very best. -cfb
