Overall, Sail Away is one of Newman's finest works, musically adventurous and displaying a lyrical subtlety that would begin to fade in his subsequent works."

  • This copy plays on relatively quiet vinyl, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • 4 Stars: "Infidels was the first secular record Bob Dylan recorded since Street Legal, and it's far more like a classicist Dylan album than that one, filled with songs that are evocative in their imagery and direct in their approach ... its writing is closer to Dylan's peak of the mid-'70s, and some of the songs here... are minor classics, capturing him reviving his sense of social consciousness and his gift for poetic, elegant love songs."
