Bob Dylan: Tempest
Buy! - (Columbia)
The songwriting legend’s in top form on his latest album, an appropriately titled set of lyrically dark and stormy songs expertly clothed in a variety of vintage styles from lightly swinging jump blues, ‘60s soul and early rock ‘n’ roll to Roadhouse Chicago blues and ancient folk ballads, fleshed out by his razor-sharp road band. As with other recent albums, he freely quotes old songs like an early bluesman, and while the sounds may be comfortingly familiar, the lyrics are mostly ominous and often scathing, laced with violence and circling around death. 9/7/2012 - Don Yates
