Review: Bob Dylan - 'Tempest'

Bob Dylan - 'Tempest'

You can never be sure what Bob Dylan is going to do when he goes on stage to perform, or when he releases a new album. The one thing you can be sure of is that he will do whatever he wants to do, without worrying much (if at all) at how it will be received.

It isn't just since he became an elder statesman (he turned 71 this year) that Dylan has done his own thing. He's done it for the most of the 50 years since he released his first album. He's doing it again with his 35th album, Tempest, which was released on Tuesday (9/11) and which has a typically Dylanian twist on life, but from a different perspective than when he was, well, not a senior citizen.

(1) Tim says:

Narrow Way: “It’s a long and narrow way, if I can’t work up to you, you’ll surely have to work down to me someday”… “Look down angel, from the skies, help my weary soul to rise”… “I heard a voice at the dusk of day, saying ‘Be gentle, brother, be gentle and pray …”
Pay in Blood: “I’ve sworn to uphold the laws of God, you can put me out in front of a firing squad … Man can’t live by bread alone, I pay in blood, but not my own …”
“Dylan is communicating the fact that it is Christ’s blood that pays for the sins of the world, not the blood of any mortal man,” see ‘Dylan, Depression and Faith’
