the quick shuffling railroad groove that opens the record threads it’s way on down through a record steeped in old-time jug band genius & some of the best lines of his career.
those 10 out of 10 reviews weren’t lying – the band he has been recording & touring with for the past decade are finely attuned to the master, & array his weathered voice & character filled tales with lilting pedal steel, brushed drums & brooding guitars. the limited deluxe CD comes with a little notebook featuring 28 reproductions of dylan-featuring magazine covers! “Tempest is dylans best musical album of this century, a vibrant maximising of strict rules and the savaged-leather state of that voice” 5/5 – mojo. “a storytelling masterpiece – dark, passionate & violent” 10/10 – Uncut.
