DEEP: Another outstanding El Rey show. A warm, crisp sounding set that is characterized by the vigor with which Dylan attacks each and every tune. His yearning vocals and incomparable phrasing stand out, he twists and turns words and sounds inside out, this way and that, peeling away the seeming endless layers of emotion in his songs. A "darker" feeling embodies this show, a feeling of dread and foreboding lurking beneath the grit of Dylan's delivery. The band seems to always set this most unique of tables, and allow Dylan to serve up his one-of-a-kind menu of love, hate, fear, regret, desire, desperation and adventure.
