Short Cuts

Dylan's hushed, haggard vocals are set against Daniel Lanois' supple, sympathetic production. Lanois strips songs to their core and creates a sparse, spooky vibe that relies heavily on Jim Dickinson's electric piano and Augie Meyers' organ. Used for ambient and percussive effects, the keyboards give songs such as "Love Sick," "Dirt Road Blues," and "Million Miles" a Twin Peaks shimmer and a Howlin' Wolf shake. The instrumentation functions as a kind of pillow for Dylan's prickly singing, and subtly reinforces Time Out of Mind's status as a dreamy masterpiece.

-- John Lewis
