5.0 out of 5 stars Bob, the tempest Oct. 21 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Bob since when he was singing, Oxford Town,it's unbelievable how this artist can change through the years, from a country music voice ,to a rock&roll voice, now his voice is close to Tom Waite, and completely akin to his new songs, The Tempest is a fine collection of timeless tunes, well, again Bob has reinvented himself, what can I say, I bought the cd, and I love it.

Bob Dylan remains as current as he ever has been. This album will be a fantastic addition to any music library.

5.0 out of 5 stars the band's a-cookin' Oct. 18 2012
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Well, I've only listened to it about 20 or 30 times but it's growin' on me. Great songs, great phrasing, great band. Love the mysterious "take 'em how you want to" songs that time cannot erase.... who's blood? what town? There's no song here that I can imagine tiring of. Whichever song I listen to last plays over & over in my brain & just doesn't want to stop. Today my favorite is Tin Angel (why a golden chain?), but ask me again tomorrow.
The watchman leaves me dreaming of things that just could be, dreams filled with images rescued from the timeless sea.
Roll on Bob.

4.0 out of 5 stars My assessment of the Vinyl LP version Sept. 20 2012
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I have read many excellent reviews about this album mostly by hardcore, obviously biased Dylan fans (and therefore leave their more worthy assessment of the performance to them). My personal, but biased view is that it is a worthy addition but not as good as Modern Times. That aside, I got the vinyl lp version (which is my format of choice) and for those of you who care about vinyl, it is a good pressing - low noise (Sony typically does a good job, better than most), the packaging is good, but Modern Times was better with a fold out cover. I also like the old fashioned lp label on the vinyl record on both Modern Times and Together Through Life - just a nice detail. Tempest is just a generic label, not bad, just not special. It may just be me but the recording is just less dynamic, lacks that 3d sound (a narrow presentation) and that makes it less atmospheric as compared to the previous two - although the intros are strong (love 'em) - this to me takes some of tension away from the lyric.

I have rated it 3.5 stars compared to Modern Times 5 stars and 4.5 stars for packaging and sound quality, overall 4 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Couple of good tunes May 28 2013

It is what we have come to expect from Bobby. Nothing new or revolutionary here.
The minstrel does his thing.

I guess I expect the sublime, good but not great
seemed contrived at times and lacks drive

This is just my take on it, but I think this is the first Dylan album I've heard where his natural voice suits the material perfectly. Frankly, for most of his career, I found his voice irritating. But the inevitable mellowing and deepening of his voice works so well with this material that it's become a 'go to' album.

Not for everyone...and maybe not for long time Dylan fans...you'll either like it or you won't. I can't see anyone being lukewarm about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Toujours vivant Jan. 5 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Je suis l'évolution de Dylan depuis ses débuts et il m'épate toujours; non pas pour la musique mais surtout pour ses propos qui me touchent à chaque fois. Dylan est fortement préoccupé par la direction de l'âme dans un monde trop matérialiste.

Nothing to say

2.0 out of 5 stars Mr Dylan has done better
Irrespective of the "rave reviews" this album disappoints. Few melodic nuances and the words to the songs are somewhat entertaining but nothing new under the sun here.

My be Dylans swansong but it is filled with good material to listen too. The poet is still a poet and filled with expected talent. Worth an award.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob does it again
A great new set of tunes. Bob does not disappoint. A must have for Dylan fans. He as usual mixes up his tracks and provides the listener with various types of melodies.

I would give this 3.5 stars if possible. This effort from late era Dylan is clearly better than Together Through Life, but not as good as Modern Times (both of which are a clear... Read more
