iTunes Review

His devotees noted Shakespeare's final play was named The Tempest, but 71-year-old Bob Dylan shot down speculation that it means this will be his final album. For the past decade, Dylan has sounded remarkably comfortable in the recording studio, releasing a string of albums that capture vintage blues, R&B and country string band music to complement his road-worn voice. "I ain't dead yet, my bell still rings," he sings on the "Mannish Boy"-influenced "Early Roman Kings" and it sounds like a reassurance. Dylan susses meaning from phrases others throw away. This is dark, dusty music with secrets tucked inside its riddles. "Duquesne Whistle," a collaboration with Robert Hunter, shuffles down the line. A hypnotizing riff works over "Narrow Way" for seven-plus minutes as Dylan quotes the Mississippi Sheiks. On "Pay In Blood," Dylan sounds like a man settling a score. "Scarlet Town" and "Tin Angel" extend the narratives, but it's the title track that squeezes 45 verses into 14 minutes for an epic that wanders from shipwreck to Leonardo DiCaprio without losing the thread.

Customer Reviews


I just don't see the genius. On its own this collection is hard to listen to. You have to know when to retire in grace.


Bob makes me think,celebrate and dance at the same time. This is one of his best. Can't choose one song over another so have to have whole album!

Terrible singer, but great lyricist and songwriter

I hate to say it, but Bob Dylan coulld never sing. But his story telling abilities, his song writing abilities are great. Perhaps he would have been better of being a songwriter/producer/composer for other artists who could sing his songs. But if he tries to sing his own songs- he's tone deaf and can't sing on pitch to save his life. And he's 71 years old. Time to ride off into the sunset!

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
