Bob Dylan – ‘Tempest’

Sep 25, 2012 No Comments by

SAN RAFAEL, Calif.—50 years into a career that has influenced generations of popular music and American culture, Bob Dylan is now enjoying one more popularity boost at the age of 71.

“Tempest,” was released on September 11th. His recent creative streak, which has been called “the voice of his generation,” captures both the past and the present, while still providing meaningful and influential poetry in lyrics.

Dylan’s voice on “Duquesne Whistle,” the lively first track, is notably different to people who are familiar with his lifetime works.  Some claim it now has a texture similar to Tom Waits.


 A deeply soulful album, “Tempest” shows the importance of Dylan’s influence on music, and why he is considered a living cultural treasure.


The most poignant moment on the album comes in the album closer, “Roll On John,” Dylan’s moving tribute to John Lennon. A deeply soulful album, “Tempest” shows the importance of Dylan’s influence on music, and why he is considered a living cultural treasure.
