    Shadows in the Night is a very good album. People seem to be passing judgement on it before even listening to it. Bob sounds good and so does the band.

    This is an enchanting recording full of depth of emotions with a wonderful selection. I never imagined Dylan singing Sinatra tunes but he does it beautifully. He feels the songs in him and i did also. Take the time to sit quietly and appreciate it . You will not be disappointed.

    The real treat in hearing Dylan rework tunes like "Autumn Leaves" is a slow-motion, humanistic view of how he finds the song's critical path.

    What he has done here is more than a lark. He really loves what he’s singing, and it shows. And he has a lot still to teach us about the joys of music.

    While Shadows in the Night may ultimately be remembered as a brief detour on Dylan’s larger journey, it’d be a shame to dismiss this collection as a mere novelty or flight of whimsy.
