Über dieses Album

Under the Red Sky ist das 27. Album von Bob Dylan. Es wurde produziert von Don Was, David Was und „Jack Frost“ (Dylans Pseudonym) und 1990 auf Columbia Records veröffentlicht. Die Widmung „For Gabby Goo Goo“, einige Kinderlied-artigen Titel (Wiggle Wiggle, Handy Dandy) und Textzeilen wie „Someday little girl everything for you is gonna be new, someday little girl you’ll have a diamond as big as your shoe“ legen den Schluss nahe, das Dylan dieses Album für seine damals vierjährige Tochter schrieb.

Trotz zahlreicher prominenter Gastmusiker, u.a. David Crosby, Robben Ford, George Harrison, Bruce Hornsby, Elton John, Al Kooper, David Lindley, Slash, Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie Ray Vaughan, war „Under the Red Sky“ kein kommerzieller Erfolg.

    The sound is dusty, sometimes mistakable for dull, but shifting and glorious. A year and a half after discovery it's still one of my top Dylan favorites.

    Great discussion about the album with several incisive and thoughtful posts, folks weighing in from both sides of the debate: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.music.dylan/toGd42icEiE

    As of right now, I see only three things wrong with this record. In ascending order of seriousness: Born in Time, by carry-over, has some of those clumsy Oh Mercy lyrics, T.V. Talkin' Song isn't quite up to the level of its brethren and the band(s) can't always keep up with the bandleader. But that's it. The rest is fantastic. Sometimes I listen and it's just a really fun album; other times it catches me in its spell and for forty minutes I'm captivated. Then the music is moving and brilliant and surprising and scary and a good comfort for hard times. I picture Dylan here as the jester in the court of the king in that old Syd Barrett song, Matilda Mother, leading a band of lesser court minstrels uneasy with but nonetheless bravely pursuing the direction of the mad Fool at their front.

    "Under the Red Sky aims frankly for the evocative. It's fabulistic, biblical. Through it all, though, the sweetness of Dylan's tone does him proud. Apocalyptic though that blood red sky may also be, he's crafted an affectionate elegy for a human race forced to live in a diminished world." That's Robert Christgau, unabashed champion of this wonderful record.

    That may as well be the last one though, I think I've run out...

    Hahaha... touche, I suppose. (Though I think your name-calling is more effective than your argument.)

    Hey now Mr. GreyPoupon, at least unlike with Another Side, I'm not alone on this one with my opinion! :P

    Basement Tapes + Slow Train Coming = Under the Red Sky. No wonder you don't like this one, Ralf.

    Three five star songs here, the rest ain't worth squat. One of which is obviously Born in Time, a song that sounds and feels like it should have been on Oh Mercy but was left out and re-recorded for this one. His sandpapery singing ruins most of the songs actually - shame cuz his vocals on Oh Mercy are superb. I can overlook the fourth grader level lyrics cause I more or less understand what he was going for with this album.
