The new album is lyrically a brilliant demonstration of rough,rowdy,manipulative
and hilarious thievery at its best.
The band is awesome.
The ballads and blues plentiful.
The older he gets the more he continues to produce great art.

I thought it was as good as Tempest and Together Through life but not as good as Modern Times or Love and Theft. I'm glad Murder Most Foul is the last track as it makes it easier to skip, I just can't get into that song.

I think Love and Theft is fantastic. I play that and Blood on the Tracks often
I bought the new CD but haven't received it yet. i Heard both Murder Most Foul and False Prophet and like both of them. I am also enjoying his voice one this one and that is something I'm surprised I said!

I've accepted what his voice is these days so I enjoy what he puts out for the most part. It's also why I think he still puts on a good show.

I got my copy of the 2 cd set today and listened to most of side 1 while pounding the treadmill.
I must say lyrically I enjoy it but musically its slow. Very few upbeat tunes and the music kind of drones on with the slower cuts. His voice is very interesting and I'm not a fan of his vocal style, but Love and Theft is much better musically to me.

"Time Out of Mind" and "Love and Theft" were so good that it would be hard to follow them up with anything that isn't a letdown. "Modern Times" and "together Through Life" are both great, and "Tempest" and "Rough and Rowdy Ways, are both good. I feel like "Tempest" and the new one are pretty similar, as far as quality and feel.

I am not sure that anyone has put out an album better than "Time Out of Mind" since 1997 when it came out. Putting out five other solid albums between the ages of 60 and 80 is pretty good.

He also always has a great touring band. The stretch from 1999 to 2002 (roughly) when Larry Campbell and Charlie Sexton were his guitar players was some of the best live music I have ever seen.

My problem is that Murder Most Foul is his nod to American Pie and probably the most incredible song released in the past 50 years. Nothing I've heard comes close to it in scope and lyric and so it's hard for me to take anything else seriously that was written in the past, oh, I don't know, say 20 years...

I got the new CD for a birthday gift. Haven't listened yet - except for the "Murder Most Foul" track - which could pass for an entry in the "Spoken Word" category (not a complaint). I've followed Bob Dylan for most of my late-teenage through adult years. It has long been his practice to zig when everybody expects a zag. It's just part of his enigmatic mystique!

A slight aside: Unlike many (most? nearly all?) of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan is NOT a nostalgia act. He has/will continue to put out material that does not necessarily resemble his most recent project. I'm sure he loses a "fan" or two in the process - but these are the measures of a true artist.

Gonna spin this disc up later today.

Casually scanning posts til I felt compelled to log in and ask if it is Dylan's new song or McLean's old one that you hold in such high regard?....I am not altogether clear, but maybe I missed something!?!

Can you please elucidate (mutliple?) examples of his thievery here?....Asking for a friend who's a scholar....

There is an essence of "American Pie". It's almost like the story picks up where Don McClean left off. Interesting that Dylan is a character in that song ("... the jester on the sideline in a cast..."). Maybe he's throwin' a nod to Oliver Stone, too? The conspiracy is part of American folklore. Soon, every person who was alive will be gone. Will "the truth" finally be told, or were all documents shredded? I digress!

The song has a non-linear thread. First - the evil deed - then the cultural aftermath beginning with the Beatles, trippin' off to Woodstock, and nods to heavies of nearly every genre of music, literature and cinema - bouncing back to the main story. Each time that I listen to the song, it resonates deeper.

"My Own Version of You" does, indeed have some comic value! Frankenstein comes to mind.

Great LP, but if you haven't followed Bob since "Blood on the Tracks", you'll probably need several listenings.
