A very fine review of a really good record. I've listened to it at least 10 times already and I love it more every time I hear it. Bravo Bob Dylan. Thank you and Merry Christmas to all!

This reviewer nailed it. Love this album. Like most of the first century Christians, Bob is a Messianic Jew.

Sorry to disapoint you but "I'll Be Home For Christmas" was writtern as an ironic song in 1943 about the soldiers WHO Would Not Be Home For Christmas" as if it is being sung by a ghost. and he sings it with just enough irony in his voice.

Hi Ray

Don't think I said otherwise. I wanted to emphasise the dream quality of the song

Very well said and a pox on all those small-minded imbeciles who don't know a generous act when they see one.

Spot on review.

Here's a thumbs-up to Mr. Dylan and all those who have the initiative to exercise a little creativity in the holiday album context, rather than the endless string of cookie-cutter CDs we too often see. The LawTunes salute such efforts, and seek to follow in even a small way in such footsteps, as evidenced by our latest lawyer holiday gift album, "Seasonís Briefings From The LawTunes." You can hear clips at Thanks again for the interesting story on this remarkable individual.

This is one of the best (possibly the best) christmas albums I have ever heard. Bob Dylan sings like he really means every word of it. I can imagine that it really works when you hear this music on christmas eve somewhere in dark corner in a big town and you really start to feel 'Christmas in the heart'.
There is a version of 'Silent Night' by Tom Waits.
I hope that he records a whole christmas album as well.
