This is Great and Dylan puts out 10 different movies or so called songs on two vinyls-i am lost in his world-Thanx Love it-Leif


May 20, 2016

Tempest opens with a little ditty that stands both out of place and out of time ... much like the music that filtered from the weathered movie speakers just prior to the matinee on a Saturday afternoon. Though given that line of thinking, the whole album stands as some sort of black and white timeworn flickering beacon, harkening back warnings from a bygone age, by a cliffhanger hero we seldom take seriously enough these days, and should, because while he’s got a different way of phrasing things under his setting sun, the unexpected weight of his songs are no less powerful.

Dylan draws deeply from the last forty years, not so much taking stylistic detours, but bringing up and challenging musical visions of the past, allowing them to sound more important with his juxtaposition. None is more evident then his vintage Tattoo You era vision of “Pay In Blood,” a song who’s lyrics he gently spits out, a song that nearly begs for the rolling hips of backup singers to sweeten the old man’s soulful moves, and ease his pain.

Tempest is a haunting rogue’s gallery of musical visions, commentary, misfortune, memories, and disillusions ... laid out like a series of paintings from the Lewis Carroll book, “Through the Looking Glass,” all lined up nice and neat, only to be rearranged right before your eyes, casting a hypnotic spell that will have you shaking your head in disbelief while searching for a chair to contain the beating of your heart as you realize that Dylan’s still out there with his amphetamine fueled visionary dexterity in tact.

Even if we have been distracted from time to time after all these years, Tempest leaves little doubt that his Bob-ness, the eternal watchman, is still at the top of his game. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve gotta put my hands in my back pockets, Betty Davis style, and stand here staring as this record spins ‘round and ‘round once more.

An ageing musician turns into the type of blues singer who inspired him as a youth. Usual Dylan inspired imagery and lyrics delivered in a mainly blues style with the residual folk influences. Well worth repeated listenings and will not disappoint.
