BOB DYLAN – ” Rough And Rowdy Ways “

Posted: June 14, 2020 in ALBUMS, MUSIC

Just when it looked like Bob Dylan was settling into a semi-retirement of regular touring punctuated by strangely reverent standards collections, he comes careening back into the spotlight with his best album in a decade, if not two. Bracketed by deeply referential mirage-like epics “I Contain Multitudes” and “Murder Most Foul,” Rough And Rowdy Ways fills out its run time with a career-spanning assortment of sounds, from stately ballads to stomping roadhouse blues. He also proclaims, “Key West is the place to be if you’re looking for immortality” — and if anyone could speak authoritatively on that subject, it’s Bob Dylan.

“Rough and Rowdy Ways” is Bob Dylan’s first album of original new material in 8 years and his first since becoming the only songwriter to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, in 2016. Its 10 tracks include the three new songs released this spring: the album’s lead-off track, “I Contain Multitudes”, the nearly 17-minute epic “Murder Most Foul” and “False Prophet”. This is Dylan back to his best, and not a Sinatra cover in sight.

It’s Dylan’s 39th studio album and his first long-player of original material in eight years (the last being Tempest in 2012).
