Bob Dylan - Tempest

2012-09-11 12:15
 
What the critics thought:

"Thirty-five albums in, Dylan remains as magical and mysterious as ever."
- Entertainment Weekly

"[Tempest is] a thing to behold."
- Rolling Stone

"He sings forcefully, in a raspy, phlegmy bark that's not exactly melodic and by no means welcoming. Battered and unforgiving, he's still Bob Dylan, answerable to no one but himself."
- The New York Times

"Though all are blessed with a wry and dusty charm that's hard to dislike, too many are rolled out in a way that seems more to do with autopilot than passion. Narrow Way and Duquesne Whistle mighty be jaunty toe-tappers but they're also examples of the lightweight fluff that blows around the album."
- BBC Music

"It's his strongest album since Love and Theft in 2001, and still there's no pinning him down."
- The Observer (UK)

"The music is the same stew of beautifully played blues, rockabilly, folk and country as every Dylan album for the last 12 years."
- The Guardian

The album is based on lead guitarist Angus Young's butt-shaking, foot-stomping guitar riffs, elegant in their simplicity and their ability to burn themselves into your brain. Read More »
