At first listen, I felt a bit disappointed. Wondering what happended to the stories, where was the protest or anger? But like any good collection of recorded music, and this goes for only the good classic-to-be stuff, it just keeps on getting better with each listen.
Each song on within this collection has this "smooth" sound. That's about all I can come up with for descripton. Smooth....Bob Dylan, smooth? Yeah, really. And soulful too!
And the band backing Mr. Bob does right by him, and respects what is goin' down, subtle, and understated. Two numbers really stand-out for me, cut 2 and cut 7, Spirit On The Water & Beyond The Horizon.
Mr. Bob, you are still really cool. Folks, buy this Modern Times collection.
