AllMusic Review by

In case you had forgotten, this album will remind you how pertinent and beautiful the songs of Bob Dylan are. The trouble with Tim O'Brien is that he makes it seem so easy; the challenge of reinterpreting classics may escape many. The repertoire covers decades and styles in one giant stroke. The playing is, as usual, impeccable. The inclusion of "Lay Down Your Weary Tune" is excellent; if only he hadn't been in such a hurry on "Forever Young."
