Bryan Ferry adopted one of rock criticism's favorite terms for 2007's DYLANESQUE, a markedly Ferryesque take on 11 tunes by rock's poet laureate. An odd pairing on the surface, given their differing roots, but the two have much in common: Dylan is no stranger to the merits of arty posturing nor is Ferry to rock-&-roll grit.
Supposedly recording the album in one inspired week, the suave singer takes on some of the bard's best here in a manner that would probably appeal to Dylan's mercurial nature. "Positively 4th Street" gets a string section makeover; "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" becomes a slow boiler with bedroom eyes; "Gates of Eden" is a crooner's delight; and the largely faithful "Make You Feel My Love," from TIME OUT OF MIND, gets its due as one of Dylan's great recent songs. This is a gripping listen for fans of both artists.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Cut fast and loose with Ferry's touring band, DYLANESQUE dresses up Dylan classics for a night on the town with AVALON-style atmosphere."
Spin (p.96) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Ferry embraces these Dylan classics...with undiluted sincerity, gently remodeling the barbed lyrics into graceful modern art."
Entertainment Weekly (p.136) - "'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues' and 'Simple Twist of Fate' quiver with controlled agony." -- Grade: B
Q (p.121) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Ferry still has sufficient panache to turn 'Positively 4th Street' into a spectral piano ballad and give 'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues' a romping, pub-rock makeover..."
