New Dylan interview ahead of new album.


Recommended Posts

With the new album out next week , I for one can’t wait for that,  here’s a rare new print interview with the man himself from the New York Times.  Some  interesting thoughts on various things. 
 

Have a look to tide you over till next week.

Lots of 5 star reviews rolling in,  not read them in depth yet,   Apparently the one on Uncut is 3000 words long.  It’s a 6 page feature.  9/10 They say.

I’m finishing the first listening.

Impressive. A one hundred year musical journey. 
Or, to lift a line from Bob himself, perfectly executed, skillfully done.

Key West is masterful

Indeed. It could have been on Oh Mercy (with a little Lanois treatment).

To a certain extent, the album is his “real” Nobel laureate lesson. 
A class in musical history and innovative songwriting. Pure genius.

I've been a Dylan fan for a long long time (longer than Bruce)

 

I wrote my English Undergraduate Dissertation on his works and compared them to that of Robert Burns

 

This new album is deep, complex, perplexing and beautiful. There are some magnificent turns of phrase and beautiful pieces of music to be found.

 

I Contain Multitudes is a lyrical feast, so many allusions and references

My Own Version Of You is brilliantly funny and that snakey descending bass line is wonderful

I've Made My Mind Up To Give Myself To You sounds like nothing he's ever done before

Black Rider is bleak and mysterious

Goodbye Jimmy Reed rocks hard and fast with a welcome return of the 'moothie

Key West is big, beautiful and epic

Murder Most Foul is one of his most important songs
