4.0 excellentlz41 | August 28th 13

Who needs a double album worth of prog-rock to be sprawling when it's possible in nine songs? Well, when you cast your lyrical and musical influences net as far and wide as Dylan does in 'Desire', that is. His narrative stance swerves wildly from civil rights activist ('Hurricane'), epic poet laureate ('Joey'), silent Western warrior ('Isis') and, uh, tourist ('Mozambique')...but an outlaw, always an outlaw, be it from the fuzz ('Romance In Durango'), from his own society ('One More Cup Of Coffee') or from his own wife ('Sarah').

4.0 excellentTravis Montgomery | September 24th 12

Seeing as there is such a wide dichotomy between the only two other soundoffs for this album, I don't want to lean too far in either direction, acting sort of as a bridge. I can see what Nick is saying, I kind of fell asleep inbetween "Hurricane" and "Joey", but overall this is a pretty good album. It's definitely not his GREATEST work, but it isn't as empty and hollow as you're making it seem. 4.0/5

Bob Dylan, the full palette of human emotions, and a complete acoustic ensemble? Robert, you betcha!

2.0 poorNick Butler EMERITUS | March 25th 08

Poor in any context, maddeningly bad when you consider it was the follow-up to his masterpiece, Desire sounds nothing like a good Bob Dylan album. Instead, it sounds lazy, forced, and insincere. After the fire and the brimstone of some of Blood on the Tracks' most famous moments, Bob could be forgiven for not finding marital bliss as fun as violent heartache, yet that doesn't excuse the music here. If was a girl, and somebody wrote the emotionally hollow "Sara" for me, I would automatically assume they didn't love me and had just been pretending the whole time. Oh, but "Hurricane" is brilliant, of course. It's not enough to make up for the snooze-fest on "Mozambique" and "One More Cup of Coffee" though. At least religious '80s Dylan was mildly entertaining sometimes.
