BOB DYLAN "tempest"
whats this one?...must be around number 40 for Bob...
bought this one today, heard it once in the car...
lots of those bluesy/jazzy overtones that has become his
staple sound over the last six or seven albums...
nothing great on here yet,only one track i dont like so far,
his voice sounds ok, hasnt deteriorated much over the last
decade or so...no earth-shattering statements on here
either, just some ok Dylan tracks...
look, if you dont like the man, you wont like this, if you do like him,
then you'll like this one....afterall, Bob is Bob, end of story!
from the album:
by Thom JurekTempest
, Bob Dylan's 35th album, continues to employ blues, country, folk, and ragged rockabilly to carry his songs. Unlike many of his recent recordings, however, he's largely left 1930s and early-'40s pop out of the mix here. Themes on Tempest
are generally dark, rife with violence and tragedy -- including the title track, a 14-minute, 45-verse retelling of the Titanic saga. Also included are "Roll On John," a tribute to John Lennon, a roadhouse blues rave-up in "Early Roman Kings," and a nine-minute ballad entitled "Tin Angel." Dylan employed his road band and guest David Hidalgo from Los Lobos in the studio
