It was around 2006 and the release of Modern Times that Dylan reached the point that very few living artists are allowed to reach. It’s no longer relevant if his latest work is a triumph or if it’s a complete disaster or if it’s merely okay. Funnily enough, you can’t even tell anymore if it’s any of those three.
Well, I laughed at some of that Christmas stuff. And got distracted too many times during Together Through Life. And now I had a chance to dream all through Dylan singing Sinatra. But that is all I can suggest. Oh, and perhaps I can also say this: last time he made me shiver with genuine, primordial excitement was during “Workingman’s Blues #2”. And that was, what, almost ten years ago.
Other than that – roll on.
