Bob Dylan - Time Out Of Mind

Time Out of Mind is Bob Dylan's critically-acclaimed comeback album, released in 1997. It was his first studio album of original songs since 1990's Under the Red Sky and saw him reunite with producer Daniel Lanois who was behind the dials for the also-praised Oh Mercy in 1989. Dylan's profile also benefitted from the mid-90's success of The Wallflowers, led by youngest son Jakob Dylan. As a result, Time Out of Mind surprisingly entered the US charts at #10 - his first US Top 10 album since 1979's Slow Train Coming - as well as the UK, and stunned reviewers and fans with its depth, complexity and quality. Although it features an older, more weathered-sounding vocal style, it was lauded as Bob Dylan's best album since Blood on the Tracks in 1975.

Shortly after completing the album, Dylan became seriously ill with near-fatal pericarditis, an inflammation of the sac around the heart. His forthcoming tour was cancelled, and Dylan spent most of June 1997 in excruciating pain.

Time Out of Mind's startling revitalization of Dylan's career extended all the way to the Grammys where it won multiple awards, including "Album of the Year" in early 1998. It was also voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll. With all the media attention and praise, US sales soon passed platinum, a feat a Bob Dylan album had not reached in nearly two decades.
