Dylan's "Christian" phase (Slow Train Coming, Saved, Shot of Love, Infidels) produced some of his very best music. "Saved" is the most "gospel-y" of the four, and redefines the gospel genre in the same way he had successively done for folk, rock, and country (and later did for blues). If in-your-face Christianity makes you uncomfortable, you won't like this album, but anyone who likes gospel music (or any sort of Christian music) must not miss it.
The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it's not for everybody. Dylan is in a musical groove here that is as compelling as in his great trilogy from the mid-70's (Planet Waves, Blood on the Tracks, Desire). "Shot of Love" had greater individual songs (Property of Jesus, Lenny Bruce, The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar, Every Grain of Sand), and "Infidels" was more varied and complex, and "Slow Train Coming" was more of a revelation, but "Saved" is the most consistent of the four and the one which works best as a coherent whole.
For this reason, I don't like to single out songs, because they're all excellent and have a cumulative impact. The lyrics are clear, powerful, and theologically both sound and deep ("What Can I Do For You?" and "Saving Grace" showing particular originality). Dylan's vocals are full of such unmistakable joy, thanksgiving, love of God, and concern for humanity that it's impossible for any Christian not to be deeply moved.
The backing band is terrific, with creative arrangements and notable piano playing from Spooner Oldham. Dylan's female background singers, led by Clydie King, have been criticized by some for their over-the-top enthusiasm on his other records from the period, but here their gospelly flair is perfect.
After 1983 Dylan moved away from overtly Christian music. His change in musical style has led some to conclude he's lost his faith, but it's clear from many songs on 1989's "Oh Mercy", 1993's "World Gone Wrong", and 1997's "Time Out of Mind", as well as the old gospel songs he sings in concerts sometimes, that God is still with him and he's still "Pressing On". ~Amazon
